Sammy’s is truly a great dive. No fancy food here, just casual comfort food. The crawfish are the best. Spicy and fresh. We over order every time though. My eyes bigger than my stomach. It does get crowded and service can suffer during peak times.

Great seafood with fantastic service. Really great choices in all main dishes. When crowded its kind of noisy but not so much so that you are uncomfortable. Prices are reasonable for servings size.

Ate several meals here because we were in a hotel close by, the food was awesome, had the grilled chicken several times and it was always cooked to perfection, nicely seasoned. The service was fast and wait staff very polite and helpful!
