Never knew it was there till an old friend invited me. Been by it a zillion times and passed it right by. My loss as it turns out. Small by many standards - smallish interior, larger enclosed deck area. Rustic! Only adds to the ambiance and makes for a homey feel as you dine. The seafood is really good and... More

They do not fry anything. My shrimp was seasoned and steamed. My husband said his potatoes were the best he ever had. Unfortunately, they use disposable utensils and paper plates.

Now known as Simply Seafood this is the place for steamed seafood. The steamed shrimp dinner was cooked perfectly. Prices are reasonable.

My family eats here often and we all love it. My sister does not eat seafood but they were perfectly fine with her bringing food in. They are meticulous about the quality of their food and it shows! Family owned and friendly service.

This is the place to go for baked oysters. I can get baked oysters all the way and a dozen costs the same as most places charge for a half dozen. Fantastic prices, great food and service!

Sometimes it is hard to find seafood in the southeast that isn't fried but they have plenty of steamed options here. The scallops, crab claws and oysters were great. The sides, especially the cheese grits, were great too. They have updated and added onto the original restaurant and everything is better. Friendly service. We will definitely eat here again. Kids...

Perfect. the steamed shrimp with homemade cocktail sauce, perfect. Snow crab and blue crab claws, meaty and tasty. We had the corn and cheese grits for our side, seasoned just right. The... More

I have been to Sam's on multiple occasions with both family and friends and have never had a bad experience. The staff is so friendly and the food is wonderful. From appetizers to desserts, its all to die for. You'll regret not trying this place out.

We ate here with family. The food is all steamed so if you want fried you are out of luck. The shrimp was amazing. The cheese grits were divine. The place is a dive but it has a great staff.

I enjoyed the crawfish, potatoes and corn. My hubby had steamed fish and vegetables. All was good, just wish they had a deep fryer!
