We went to Sammy's our first day in Atlantic Beach for vacation. Had fast and friendly service and the buffalo shrimp and oysters on the half shell were good. The wife saw a dish on the menu after we had ordered that she wanted to try so we also went back the next night. This time we had the same friendly waitress but the food was a letdown. I had a three item seafood platter that was a smaller portion at about double the price compared to what we can get back home. Tasted about the same too, nothing that outstanding. The wife ordered the dish she had seen, the seafood extravaganza. She was really disappointed with it. Not much seafood in it but lots of pasta. You would expect more seafood being at the coast. And for the money that was charged we did expect more. The waitress did ask if everything was ok and we didn’t want to cause her any problems so we said it was. I would go back but would probably look more to the specials they offer or the fresh, raw seafood on the menu and bypass the fried stuff and regular menu. I'm pretty sure you can find cheaper prices, even a dozen oysters on the half shell at around $18 a dozen costs more here than they do in most places around Charlotte.
