Summary: Food: Very Good - Plenty of options Service: Excellent - Cheerful Atmosphere: OK. Dined outside on the sidewalk. NO water view though. We dined at Sammy's during our beach vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC. It was a pleasant experience. In search of Oysters on the half shell, we wondered into Sammy's at around 7:30 and were greeted by a... More

First visit to Sammy's but will make a return visit. Basket of hushpuppies and cornbread was the best we've had of any places we visited during this trip. Entrees were steak and grilled shrimp - grilled shrimp needed some seasoning, but steak was super delicious! and two crab cakes, also very good. Sides included twice baked potato, slaw, fries, and...

This place has a great reputation and we were looking forward to the experience. They were very busy as they should be during the downswing of tourist season. However they were so busy, the entire front of the house was short, snippy. Topped off with an extremely limited 'brew' selection with no ciders or GF ales. The bar staff was... More

Sammy Oh Sammy why do you say your an oyster bar and when one orders them you say they are out of season ? maybe N.C. oysters but others are available. Your other food was good and your wait staff friendly; so no comlaints there . Yet you would get a better review if only you had what you advertise.

I've eaten at Sammy's many times on business trips. The bar menu is fairly big and reasonably priced. It tends to be a little less busy than some of the other places close by, but for me that's a positive.

Our first time at Sammy's was a great experience. Everything is fresh and delicious, from the seafood pastas to fried seafood platters. Oysters are briny and taste of the ocean. Crab cakes and soups are filling. Service is casual, but excellent.

Went for the first time on a busy Saturday night and we were seated immediately. Service was good, a little bit of a wait but food was very good. A little too pricey in my opinion. Convenient location right by the waterfront.

We came to visit local friends who took us here and it was a great place for a relaxing and comfortable meal for adults and children alike. Friendly, prompt service from Drew and we all liked our drinks and food. Our group got a kick out of the interesting flavors of lollipops at the reception desk. It as a memorable... More
