First time in this place and our experience was pleasant. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and we enjoyed a good meal. Not rushed Great location. It soon got very busy which is definitely a good sign! Typical west coast food with a nice variety.

Some of you are thinking it never left, but a while ago they changed the bun and it was too small, but now it's back to a good size bun again. This is my favourite meal on the menu. The waiters will allow you to accompany it with half fries and half salad, which is nice too (that way you... More

Used to love this place. Lately the food quality is going down, especially in the more complicated dishes like the Jambalaya and the New Orleans. It's like they don't have the right professional authority in the kitchen. Service though was above and beyond - they replaced the dishes we didn't like, discounted and gifted anything they could. Wish all restaurants... More

I haven't been to Sammy J's for years and my husband and I decided to try it for lunch a couple of weeks ago and we were very impressed! The menu had lots of fantastic options, they were very child friendly and the service was great! It had the decor of a "nicer" restaurant but the atmosphere was really geared... More

Went with friends who live near the modern decor grill. They had salads, but I went for a "bowl" of jumbalaya. Wow! What flavor in the huge portion! Such a mix of interesting tastes. Attentive staff provided good service. They three of us ate and drank for less than $70 Canadian. I would return again!

We selected Sammy J's because of their private room to eat and celebrate. Wow what a gem Coquitlam has with this restaurant! We had a baby shower with 10 guests and we enjoyed *everything* about it.

As it was happy hour we decided to share the panko shrimp and dry ribs to start. I had the jambalya and my wife ordered the... More
