For the past 30 years, we have been coming to Montauk on Tumbleweed Tuesday and have spent 5 nights. In the past, we have dined around Montauk and never ate at the same place twice. Since we found Sammy's, that has changed! The service, portions and food are amazing! We closed out our vacation this evening with the Saturday Surf... More

We dined at both Sammys for dinner as well as lunch at their on the go truck. The food was delicious and reasonably price. The night we went they had live music which added to our dining experience. Will be back Columbus Day & plan on dining here!

Simply the best food in Montauk. This is the place the LOCALS go to eat. Food is outstanding - service is fabulous, and it hasn't been discovered by the summer crowds. I was in Montauk for a month - I had dinner here 3 days per week - every meal was great.

The food looked really good but we refused to stay with the cranky old man that made us wait just to get menus. He did say he was the only one there. Which seemed like another problem but then he seemed to wanted to punish everyone who would make him work. We helped him by leaving. If they have more... More

Went to Sammy's for the first time and was disappointed in the food. I ordered chili and I tasted it the whole day. Waiter was disinterested in serving us. Will not go back.

We tried Sammy's on a weekend night and were seated right away, not too crowded. We had curry broth muscles and coconut shrimp for apps and both were great. For a entrée I had to try there lobster burger and glad I did. It was really good and not full of grease. The batter coating the lobster was light and... More

We wanted to go to Salivars but it was an hour wait so we walked down to Sammys. We were hesitant to go into the restaurant as there were many empty seats. A couple was walking in and they assured us that the food was good so we gave it a try. Reasonable prices and a very friendly and efficient... More

We visited twice on our trip. On both occasions the service was fantastic. Both the bar man and the waitress were so friendly and welcoming. This really enhanced our experience. This restaurant is not at all pretentious, it is substance over style. Just what we were looking for. On both visits we ended up eating (as the food coming from... More

When Lenny's closed up and replaced with Swallow, we were heart broken. Now open, by the same owner is Sammy's. Back to good food, good service and not so crazy prices. If you remember Lenny's, try Sammy's - you will like it. Enjoy !!!!

We walked into Sammy's after hearing there was an hour and a half wait at the Inlet Restaurant. The restaurant seemed very quiet for a Saturday night (no wait), but the food was delicious and the service was great. My FIL reported having the best fish and chips ever and my husband's lobster pasta was packed with chunks of lobster... More
