“Rum Punch with a 'BIG PUNCH'!”
Reviewed 24 March 2013

We were exploring around Rock Sound and decided to stop in at Sammy's. We were so happy that we did. The bartender was super friendly. My wife ordered a 'rum punch', and what a 'PUNCH' that cocktail had. The bartender said "Let me know if it's too strong". Great rum punch, with a float of dark rum on top. I enjoyed my favorite beer Kahlik. We ordered cracked conch, and that was excellent. My wife enjoyed the rum punch so mush She ordered a second one! Wow!

“locals like it, but service is poor and menu empty”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Sammy's is a well known local spot in Rock Sound. It is one of the first places people recommend to eat in the area. I have been there several times, place is clean, staff is friendly, but very, very slow. Every single time I have eaten there, the dish I wanted (and I picked different things) was "out". So I settled for the fish of the day or a hamburg. Coffee is Nescafe instant.
There are better restaurants in this area.

After living in a less developed area of Eleuthera for a while, it's nice to come to a sit-down restaurant and actually get waited on!! (Not typical for Eleutheran restaurants on the south end of the island). They also serve awesome American food (coming from a homesick American). Try the bacon cheeseburger with fries! Hot wings are good as well. And food is prepared pretty quickly.

GREAT island food! Loved the Conch appetizer plate! Nice little place to just enjoy some authentic Eluthra food. The fried grouper was superb.

“Most unique conch salad to date...”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Stopped by Sammy's one day to have some conch salad. This specific day they had boiled the conch before making the conch salad. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! For those people who don't like the texture of raw conch in the conch salad this is for you. Next time you're at Sammy's ask for conch salad with the conch boiled first. You won't be dissapointed.
