Sammy's was a new restaurant for us and it lived up to our friends recommendation. Excellent fresh seafood and service. Ample parking (municipal) and easy access. The only meal that we tried a desert ( Fried Key Lime Pie) was unusual and delicious.

seafood extravaganza, fried flounder, stuffed flounder and stuffed shrimp were gotten by the 4 of us and everyone loved their food. The hushpuppies were very good also and the crab dip was a good appetizer. will definitely go back when in town.

Ate here after having bad experience with Ruddy Ducks. Our hotel suggested we try them. The food was excellent and was cheaper then Ruddy Ducks even with a glass of wine. I look forward to eating there again on our next trip.

Crowds vary depending on what time of year you go...I'm not sure they take reservations. It's a very casual restaurant with great food!
