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

We had heard raves about this place before coming to Morehead City and were excited to go here. It was a disappointment to me although others in the group were happy. I had the shrimp platter and my husband had shrimp fajitas. Both were okay but nothing special.

First of all I would like to say that the people that work here, particularly the lady that ran the place this evening were extremely nice. This is a place where a lot of locals go to. I live close by and felt like our family should give it a try. In fairness, the oyster shucker told us that it... More

Well, I went here to have my birthday dinner after looking at the reviews on Tripadvisor and their menu. I did not get the name of the older lady who ended up being my server because the younger girl was apparently "too busy" to serve me. Anyways, she was very nice and friendly, unlike the vibe I was getting from... More

I ate here as part of a large group. The food was fantastic, I had the flounder platter. The service was decent. They were very busy so I'm sure that was the cause of the slower service.

Sammy's is locally owned and operated by Sammy Boyd. He also is opening Southern Salt on the Morehead City waterfront, the old Cap't Bill's location. Sammy's serves only fresh seafood and it is the best is the area hands down. Sammy takes pride in providing good fresh food. Shrimp/fish/crab is supplied by local boats and served just that fresh. Oysters... More

I have this thing for soft-shell crabs and while visiting family in Atlantic Beach they took me to Sammy's. Outstanding!! Sweet!! Perfectly battered and fried!! Not greasy. My hosts had shrimp and steak and they all raved. It's a must for anyone visiting the area.
