We ate here twice during our stay in Rock Sound - a late dinner for our first night and breakfast on our last morning. Great meals and friendly service both times!

We ate here several times and always ordered the same thing, conch chowder and a conch burger. The conch burger was very good but the chowder was exceptional. We've had conch chowder many places on Eleuthera, but this was without a doubt the best. My brother-in-law had the grouper burger and said it was very good as well. The hostess... More

This small restaurant, in my humble opinion, is the perfect definition of Eleuthera. The restaurant is small and clean, decorations from years past, and a bit hidden. If you didn't follow the nearly camouflaged signs or ask a local, you wouldn't find it. The food is cheap - even outside of island standards. For 4 of us, including 2 beers,... More

janice is a very nice hostess-- friendly, informative-- you can tell she cares about the place her father built. plus when i asked about the conch salad, she gave me a cup free. yum! the lobster was very good and reasonably priced for lunch. more locals than tourists (a good thing).

There aren't many options for sit-down restaurants in the South end of Eleuthera and Sammys is a great one! We needed breakfast to fuel us for a day of snorkeling and Sammys was the perfect answer. Fried egg, toast, and bacon for $8 for me and House omelette and grits for my husband ($12) add a coffee and a juice... More

Sammy's is our best place to eat in Rock Sound, Eleuthera. The service is always great, the food good and lots of it, and the meal is always served with a big Bahamian smile. Sammy's always has daily specials so remember to ask what she has special for the day. The chicken "snack" consist of a quarter baked chicken with... More

I ate here for the first time last week and as a dairy-free vegetarian, I was worried about finding something to eat. After confusing the waitress with my order (I asked for a burger with no patty...just the fixings), I was treated to a nicely toasted bun with fresh lettuce, onions, and condiments. It was served with plantains and fries,... More

My parents started taking me here when I was very young and it has been a nice place to stop in for lunch. It seems as if the service goes down throughout the years but the food stays great.

There aren't many restaurants in Rock Sound. This one is the best known. It has good food, but often items on the menu are not available. Lots of locals enjoy eating here.

Good food, but the secret is to go on Thursdays for lunch and get the Split Pea soup. She only makes one pot, and when it's gone, it's gone. Miss Jan is lovely, and always a pleasure to speak with.
