Sammy's is always a favorite with great food and mid to low cost. Locals are well aware of this restaurant.

Having a recent hankering for good honest LA seafood, I headed to Sammy's. It's a boisterous & noisy spot, but, popular with local Baton Rouge residents. The joint was jumping, so to speak. There were young & old, families with kids, townsfolk & university students...a...More

Sammy's is a local chain of restaurants that is known for doing fried seafood well, and they do, but not for the price point. They may have been one of the best restaurants in town when they first got going, but even with recent menu...More
