At one time Sammys was one of the best family restaurants to do, I am sorry to say the last three times were disasters! First you know something's not right when you have to go down the menu to find a course that's even available, or out, number four and I finally got to eat. Second, when the waitress makes... More

I have eaten here a number of times since the flood in August of 2016. I have waited until now to write a review. I kept hoping the quality of Sammy's food would come back to what it was prior to the flood. In my opinion, I'm sorry to say it has not. The service is just as good as... More

We ordered a Caesar Salad and did not get one. The bowl of gumbo tasted burnt. The crawfish etoufee was tasteless with mushy watery rice. This was a get together of nine people. Three out of nine entrees were bad! Service to the table was fair to poor. Empty table dishes were left on the table. One entree was missed... More

I can't count the number of times I've visited Sammys, I love this place and it's great for families & large groups. Our mots recent trip (2-3-17) was for a friends birthday and we were a group of 8. Waited about 25 minutes for a table, were offered to sit at the bar for drinks while we waited. Got to... More

We were a table of 15(7 adults, 8 kids) 1. Over 40 minutes to take our order. 2. Two people's dinner entree came out before the rest of the tables dinner salads. 3. Two people's dinner entrees came out after everyone was finished. 4. Shrimp poboys - wouldn't think you could screw this up...but leave it to Sammy's! 1/2 poboy... More

We drove a little off the highway to try this place out. My wife was very excited for the crawfish boil, but unfortunately, they didn't serve it until 5pm so be careful of this if you are heading there to eat that at lunch. The fried green tomatoes were excellent! Catfish was good and really, gumbo and crawfish étouffée was... More

I've enjoyed this place many times. I do have to agree with the reviewer that the noise is pretty bad. Do not come to this place expecting a quiet ambiance. It will not happen. I've also eaten at their Zachary location and the noise level is the same. However, food is good and the service is excellent. I'm especially fond... More
