I can't count the number of times I've visited Sammys, I love this place and it's great for families & large groups. Our mots recent trip (2-3-17) was for a friends birthday and we were a group of 8. Waited about 25 minutes for a table, were offered to sit at the bar for drinks while we waited. Got to... More

Two people's dinner entrees came out after everyone was finished. 4. Shrimp poboys - wouldn't think you could screw this up...but leave it to Sammy's! 1/2 poboy... More

We drove a little off the highway to try this place out. My wife was very excited for the crawfish boil, but unfortunately, they didn't serve it until 5pm so be careful of this if you are heading there to eat that at lunch. The fried green tomatoes were excellent! Catfish was good and really, gumbo and crawfish étouffée was... More

I've enjoyed this place many times. I do have to agree with the reviewer that the noise is pretty bad. Do not come to this place expecting a quiet ambiance. It will not happen. I've also eaten at their Zachary location and the noise level is the same. However, food is good and the service is excellent. I'm especially fond... More

Sammys is a great place to eat. They have very good food. I have eat there multiple times. Their chicken fingers, house salad, turkey croissant, and chicken Parmesan is very good. You always know it's going to be really good when there is a long wait!

Great place to go for a laid back hangout. Not good for a first date. I had to yell at my date. Food was great, except my fish was a little over cooked. Good service even though my waitress had another big table. Kinda pricey too for the ambiance and food. I get a much quieter table and good sushi... More

One of several family oriented resturants with Cajun-style food. They have sandwich es, stakes, and seafood. Try the Prime Rib Poboy, with pepper jack cheese, and sweet potato fries. They are simply great. The staff is pleasant with fast service. Come during Happy Hour. Stay awhile and just chow down. You will make a return visit
