Sammy's is one of those places where your expectations are not really that high when you first see it but the food and service is great. I was not disappointed with the catfish smothered in white sauce, shrimp, and crawfish.

Sammy's is a staple in the Baton Rouge area. I have never been disappointed with the food or service at any of their locations. If you are not from Louisiana and want to try Louisiana cuisine this is a reasonably priced, family friendly, authentic restaurant. During crawfish season, it is a good place to have crawfish as well.

Having never tried craw fish, our waitress brought us a sample and showed us how to eat them. She was awesome!!! We all tried something new (plus a few more craw fish) and was extremely happy with all the choices. Great flavor, great service and reasonable prices. Definitely going back next time in the area.

Sammys is a great to meet and enjoy a meal with the family. Prices are reasonable food is good. The atmosphere is good but may be difficult to have a conversation with others at your table.

The food was seasoned just right and the variety was a nice selection. My family and I enjoyed the seafood as well as the steaks. It won't be our last visit. Also the staff was attentive and always there to meet our needs.

The guys at our hotel told us about this restaurant. We didn't have to wait every long for a table of 5. The prices were great for our budget. The food was good for everyone. The service on the other hand....well, could have been better. We were seating at our table for 1 3/4 hours. I thought that was to... More

My Wife and I have eaten at Sammy's on several occasions. Most of their food is very good. As of lately we have been dieting so we just go there and sit at the bar and order an appetizer and share it. We like the "Coaches Plate" and a glass of wine. The atmosphere is casual and the wait staff... More
