Food was awesome. Had a combination platter. Fresh food with a great taste. Only complaint was waitress never came back to refill our drinks. Once we had our food didn't see her anymore until she brought the check.

I am a vegetarian and the Fijatas are awesome! My husband loves the oysters but we missed the season this time, but he always finds the seafood to be perfectly cooked!

My husband and I had dinner at Sammy's. We started off with an appetizer of Stuffed Shrimp: it was all crabmeat with Parmesan Cheese on top stuffing. They were very good. My husband ordered combination seafood platter of shrimp and flounder with sides of slaw and fries. The flounder had a nice thickness and not fried hard. He said the... More

Amazing seafood and steaks. Server was great and helpful. One of the entrees was more than enough food for two people. Great location. Wonderful atmosphere. Will make this a regular stop!

After subscribing to their newsletter, watching their adds, believing the seafood was from NC and fresh...I was harpooned. The seafood platter consisted of seafood, frozen long ago and I'm doubtful if it came from local fishermen - doubtful it came from NC. And what is that in the "crabcake"? It tasted like dill pickle. Who does that anyway? I'm an... More

We went to Sammy's on 2/12. The were extremely under staffed, which they informed us upon arrival. We chose to stay anyway. The waitress (Lynn) was incredible as she tried to make sure everyone was not waiting to long for their food. The only other downside was the my broiled seafood was served fried. Despite these minor set backs, I... More
