Evening meals, wholesome honest to goodness. Lunches the same and varied catering for all nutrition specifics. Service outstanding. Leave a tip, the staff work very hard to cater for every taste.

We camped nearby and had a delicious fish & chips by the sea one evening. Food was hot, tasty and the guy who delivers the drinks was so friendly and helpful. Would recommend for anyone visiting inch beach to go for a pint and some...food here. The dessert range they had in the cafe looked delicious too!More

we have been visiting Sammys for the last 20 years. It was always the friendliest place and food always excellent, served until late in the evening. We visited last week and Unfortunately it is nothing like this now. Staff indifferent,menu limited, pay before you eat,closes...very early, a definite loss to the area.More

Hi There, Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 we have had to trade differently from previous years as we do go through very high volumes of customers during the summer. We have had to adapt to maintain the safety for our staff members and our customers and...More

Called today (weds) at 1:45pm, poor queuing system no contact tracing, order food before getting a table, the food took 35 minutes to arrive (baring in mind we’d an 8,6 and 2 year old) , asked a server who told me they were “busy”, spoke...to the manager after having our meal who said a burger takes “15 mins”, and didn’t seem to care either.. will not be back !More

The seafood chowder is delicious! The portions are big and the self service is ok. The price is reasonable and the location is beautifully located just by the beach.

The pizza here is quite good, especially the bases. The toppings aren't over generous but the freshness and flavour are there. Not the cleanest place in these Covid times but still better than a lot of other places. Tables are all well spread out alright...so you will never feel on top of or too close to the people next to or in front of you.More

We sat here for dinner and had a very nice meal outside, food was good and so was the service, all staff wearing masks so we felt comfortable being in the restaurant, all in all it was very good.

Today my wife and I stopped for lunch at Sammy's restaurant at Inch strand Co. Kerry. We queued for 15mins to order which we understand because of Covid 19 restrictions. We ordered two basic lunches and were assigned seating. 30mins later we still had not...received our meal. I asked when could we expect it and was told it was on the way but never arrived. We decided to leave after 35mins and asked for a refund . We received no apology or explanation for the delay and subsequently discovered on our return to killarney realising that we had only been refunded for one meal instead of two. We are very annoyed at the poor service , and sharp practice with our refund as the manager was well aware of the two meals that we had ordered and paid for. It is a bad way to do business and has left a very sour taste. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. We are regular travellers to Co. Kerry but will certainly not be recommending Sammy restaurant on your travels.More

We were driving from Dingle to Killarney on a brisk November morning and this was the perfect stop! We walked the beach and then stopped in to warm up with a well crated cup of coffee. We sat right in front of the big windows...and enjoyed ourselves before getting back on the road. Even if this is not your ultimate destination, don't miss the opportunity to stop in.More

Enjoyable lunch with 3 friends. The place was rammed with customers, however the wait staff organised a table within minutes. Incredibly attentive staff with fabulous recommendations. Food did what it said on the tin, no frills with incredible quality! Highly rate this place for a...quick bite while stopping by, or a long lunch. Would definitely visit again.More
