Description: T was in 1966 that the Sammys's Fishbox story began; From our very humbe beginnings in 1966 we have grown from a 26 seat snack bar to a 500 seats, full service restaurant; preparing upwards of 1 million meals annually. Our phenomenal growth has been most gratifying to us. Since the beginning we believe some things are as true today as they were years ago; quality attracts customers, value earns respectand compromise in either is inappropriate. Our formula is very simple; we serve the best quality food prepared fresh daily in a uncompromising manner and served in generous portions at affordable prices. We at Sammy's wish to thank our customers for your loyalty in the past and we promise to earn more of that loyalty in the future. Sincerely, Sammy

This is a large place, decorated cheerfully and with an eye to celebrations. Prices are on the high side but the food was tasty and the portions large. We did not realize that there would be extras on the bread tray and that the salads would be large. It was all good and we, like most everyone we saw, brought home leftovers. Next time we will share even with a $5.00 sharing charge or perhaps we will go for lunch since it is served until 3pm. Service was good and it was quiet on a weekday evening.

We have been to Sammy's for family events but it was a long time since it was just the two of us...and after a long day of travel and a hospital visit Sammy's was the perfect spot for the evening. No scenic views, overly-moderate noise level--no, you go there for the food! As a plus, we had Gabriel as our server and he took great care of us (sit in his area if you can!). My wife and I both ordered from the wood plank section of the menu and I think that is the way to go; the fish seems to be better prepared and tastier. It comes with grilled veggies and a salad as well as rice or pasta. Yes, it was a little noisy that evening but it was a buzz of excitement--I think people were really enjoying the Sammy's experience!
