We live not too far from here and have been trying local eateries. We pass Sam's almost every day and had been wanting to try it since we both love seafood the Southern way - fried. I had the Shrimp and my wife had the Scallops and Shrimp. The wait staff are very attentive and the food was served hot... More

This is the best seafood in Orange Park. Their fried shrimp, oysters, scallops & fish are outstanding. Love their seafood appetizer spread. If you are in the area I would highly recommend their food.

I eat here at least 3 times a week! To say I am addicted to there amazing seafood and steak is an understatement. The steaks are better than the top steak places in Jax. They marinate them with an awesome sauce and grill them to perfection! The shrimp are THE best in Jax. They aren't greasy or too breaded. ALL... More

No comparison, really. This is a restaurant, the other a fast food outlet. Friendly staff, good choice of dishes, reasonable prices, well cooked, good service. The best fish we had this holiday. Only a very limited choice of wine lets it down. Simple but clean.
