Great local restaurant. The locals all seem to choose this place to eat and drink. Our waitress (Janice) had a great personality. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Would go again.

We had lunch there before going to ocean hole. Fried fish (grouper) was very good as well as the fish burger. Kids had club sandwiches that were qualified as excellent. Service is just great and very nice. Go there, you will not regret it.

Cracked fried conch was amazing, as was the breaded fried shrimp. We were curious as while we were there, three different groups of locals came in and ordered the pork chop. Wish... More

This family owned business offers great home cooking at reasonable prices. The owner's daughter, Janice Culmer, was very pleasant and accomodating. She made us feel at home. Definitely a must stop.

Delicious options, super fresh, large portions, very reasonable, mostly locals come in on our visits, staff happy and friendly. Just had anther delicioius lunch there March 31 2016 after visiting Ocean Hole. We first discovered Sammy's in 2010 en route to Lighthouse Beach, their conch every which way just awesome, burgers tasty too.
