We went for a drive to see where the road took us...ended up at Sammys Place for lunch. Glad we found this little gem. The food was delicious. Cracked fried conch was amazing, as was the breaded fried shrimp. We were curious as while we were there, three different groups of locals came in and ordered the pork chop. Wish... More

Had a fantastic lunch at Sammy's. Janice is the best and the food is really good and reasonably priced. Loved the rum punch! Take the time for this wonderful place!

This family owned business offers great home cooking at reasonable prices. The owner's daughter, Janice Culmer, was very pleasant and accomodating. She made us feel at home. Definitely a must stop.

We were told about Sammy's and went there twice for lunch on our 9 day stay. On both occasions, many customers came and went. That includes both tourists and locals. Service was excellent. Our waitress has a great smile and superb sense of humour. The menu included both American and traditional Bahamian fare. Meals were filling, tasty and reasonably priced.... More

We stopped by Sammy's after a long day of fishing and traveling. Couldn't have been happier with our meal or the service. Good restaurants aren't easy to come by in Eleuthera, but this is one you can count on. We'd return in a heartbeat.

A great "go" place to pick up food to head out fishing for the day. Friendly staff. Inside dining as well. Famous for their Conch Stew, but I did not partake this trip.
