If you're going to City Island, you do not want to NOT visit Sammys. Good, mountainous plates of seafood. Love this place!
Visited SAMMY's today and must say the ambiance is great the food is incredible but the waiter by the name of JEFFREY made us feel not welcomed. Did not have his name tag on like his co-workers, wonder why? Would go there again but not serviced by same waiter, hope management reads this.
Visited Sammy Yesterday for the first time and I just had to say I had a fantastic meal and the staff was so nice. It was my son's sixteenth birthday and they couldn't do enough for us..I can't wait to go back.
Ambiance Is Great. Food & Drinks even better.. My wife and I had cocktails and dinner at Sammy's on City Island a few days ago and as always we were very happy with the experience. The Restaurant has been around since the 60's and looks like it opened yesterday. This is a fun place. I am the 3rd generation of my family going to Sammy's and were working on the 4th..
Seafood, Mojitos and more. I am not a great letter writer but I just had to say that I recently dined at Sammy's on City Island and had a fantastic evening. The staff and food were five star as well as the decor was so cool, I felt like I was eating at one of those great feeling Disney theme restaurants. I must add that my wife and I shared a 5lb lobster that was the best I ever had.
Melt in your mouth menu. We were a party of 20 and purposely ordered 20 different appetizers and 20 different entrees as is the custom when our club eats out.. I just could not believe it that this was the first time after meeting at countless restaurants over the last 5 years that every single dish was a winner. What a great restaurant, Sammy's is on the top of our list. We are all planning to have another meeting there next month..This will be the first time we have return to a restaurant for our club meeting..
Best BBQ since I moved from Texas.. I am a huge BBQ fan since my college days in Austin Texas. Last week my friend invited me to dinner up on City Island at Sammy's Fishbox. I would have rather gone to a BBQ place but since I was a guest it wasn't my choice.. To my surprise Sammy's had the best Baby Back Ribs I have ever eaten, They were succulent and tender off the bone. I had a Rib and whole lobster combination that was so good. The restauarant had a wonderful vibe as well, can't wait to go back..
Best seafood restaurant in NYC. I first came here in the 1980's but haven't been back because I now live out of state. Went back this weekend with some guests and it's every bit as good as ever. My favorite is the fried combination platter, with one serving you can eat yourself to overflowing and still take home enough for a full meal for another day. The reason you come here is for large portions of great tasting fresh seafood, what else is there to say? Sure the entrees run $35 - $40 but you get what you pay for. I've never met anyone who's been here, who didn't want to go back again and again. And the valet parking is free.
What a mistake......
One the worst restaurant experiences I ever had. The food was not good at all. I ordered the fillet of sole and boy was that a mistake.the batter they use is pretty bad. My daughter threw up in a disgusting bathroom half way through the meal. she had the crab legs with the shell steak. The waiter was nice but never around. I felt like I was being robbed when I had to pay the ridiculously over priced bill.
Giving this place 5 stars is a complete joke !!
Eh, is right, Don't believe the hype. I'm not sure what all the five star reviews are about. Seems fake to me, that many people writing raving reviews.
