Sammy's Shrimp Box
Santos was amazing !
A fish house. That says it all
Food was ok, service was mediocre. Had to ask the waiter for something 3-4 times before it was done. Waited 15 minutes after being seated just for our server to come over to us.
Service was pretty slow, they sat us immediately; however, we had to wait over 30 min for our entree. After the long await, I found a hair tangled in the shrimps bread crum... I was heartbroken. I spoke to the manager and he gracefully comped the entre.
In all the years that I have been going to Sammy’s this was the first time that has happened so I will let this one slide. Nonetheless, I was very disappointed and so was my husband.
The waitstaff was excellent, but the food wasn’t up to par. It was apparently an off night for the restaurant. We will give them a time out for a while.
Great service, excellent food and an overall great experience here!
Sammy’s Shrimp box is my favorite seafood restaurant.. I frequent here quite often, often enough to know the table# where I sit so I can request it every time! I love the seafood, it is fresh and flavorful and prepared to perfection EVERY TIME!! The servers are personable and on point and very catering. I love Sammy’s and I recommend the Lobster & Crab Feast for 2 to get a taste of everything for a very affordable price ( I get it just for myself, but I’m greedy) Enjoy!
Always a pleasure to dine here. Food was excellent however service was a bit lax this particular evening. Otherwise an excellent experience.
Just my husband and I, some quality time, with delicious meal and a cold beer.
I highly recommended it.!
We ordered the broiled seafood combination. It was very tasty. Although we shared the entrée there was enough food to satisfy us both.
We decided to go out for a last minute dinner and we chose Sammy’s for convenience and reliability. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely waitress who was very attentive and we thoroughly our meal and each other’s company. I always recommend Sammy’s.
It was my b-day and our anniversary, we enjoyed delious varieties of fish foods and the drinks were going good too, we definitely want to go back again, c-u there! 👊🙌
I reserved two tables whichever sammy’s didn’t realize. When I told them they quickly changed our table to accommodate all of my guests. My waiter (whose name I can’t remember) was amazing as well.
Great Food great service will recommend highly will go back
Nice classic style experience so would highly recommend.
Went for my father’s birthday, waitress was super attentive with meals and what not. Drinks took a bit long for refills but it’s understandable. Nice environment, very lively. Portions were HUGE. Will definitely be back.
There were flies all over. The restaurant was empty but we hardly saw our server. Our first order was over cooked and left a bad taste. So we ordered something else. We were there 2.5 hours basically waiting for bad food
I’ve eaten here several times. The food is always great, and you get a lot for your money. You won’t be able to finish it! The crab legs are the best.
Fry-Lobster is amazing
Overpriced, bland, tasteless food. $127 on 2 drinks, and 2 entrees. Ordered a filet and shrimp which was extra well done when I ordered it medium. The broiled seafood was also overcooked and tasteless. Our drinks were the best part, which is sad. I won't be going back.
My children love Sammy's. However, I am allergic to shell fish and this was my first time there. I was impressed by the energy of the diners and the service. The Hostess not so much. My sons arrived first and were seated. When I checked in, I was told I was the first one in the party of 8. I called my son and he had to leave his table to come get me.
I told the waiter I was allergic to shellfish and he looked at me like I was crazy. Anyway, I ordered fillet mignon - med well. It was well done almost crispy. The baked potato was OK.
For seafood lovers, I would totally recommend Sammy's.
The waiters/men was coming off as if we were taking up their time rushing us to order, fast talking us and wasn’t people friendly as in the past. We paid 200..00 in cash 102.78 on one card and we explained to him to put the 48.78 on another card he returned back to the table informing us that we were short 200.00 now LET ME SAY THIS HE (HE HAD THE 2 BILLS IN HIS HAND 2 100.00 bills WHEN HE MADE THAT STATEMENT) so I politely stated sir the money is right in your hand. Last but not least he didn’t do the cards as we requested for him to do so. However we didn’t make a fuse I just informed him to relax and give the customers his time and attention the come for. ...I drive one hour and fourth minutes to get you guys because I know it’s always worth it I recommend this to ppl all the time been coming there fir years never had a problem. I will continue to come and refer people.
A truly wonderful restaurant. Great food and great staff. I’ve been good to Sammy’s for years.
Great food, staffs are friendly and food came quick!
Awesome time with family. Excellent grilled shrimp!!!
We love Sammy’s! The food is amazing and the service is good! I just wish all the rooms had AC available. We were seated on the inside room with glass and it was a little warm.
It was very crowded, but we had a reservation and were seated promptly. The food was great and the waitress was phenomenal.
Es la segunda vez que voy, la primera vez todo estuvo muy bien pero esta vez el servicio estaba lento, la bandeja de los mariscos estaba incompleta, no tenían los cubiertos para los mariscos tuve que esperar hasta que se desocupada o apareciera uno fue la respuesta del camarero. Realmente fui por la atención de la primera vez pero quede decepcionada.
Went for my mothers 81st Bday and our waiter was Amazing...the food and overall service was Great!!!
Mother’s Day Celebrations.
Love going to Sammy’s. The food is always great with service to match. This is my favorite restaurant on City Island.
The food was great. We got there before our reservation time and was seated right away. There was a short wait time and that was great.
First time on City Island and the experience was horrible. I requested romantic table for two to celebrate anniversary but was sat next to the bathroom, service was poor, and food was so so. You should take this one off your list.
Food was over cooked. Service was excellent
Excelente atención y servicio, la comida es increíblemente deliciosa
Lo recomiendo 100%
The service was not good and no one finished their food as it was not tasteful. Also the tables are too close to each other and no room to move.
I would have given Sammy's a better review. But the cook took it upon him/herself to add a soft shell crab to my friend seafood combo which wasn't part of the meal's description. I'm highly allergic to crab and had to send the entire plate back to the kitchen. Not a good turn...
Great food - good service -
