The atmosphere is fun. The food incredible, especially the fried pickles. I liked the first exprience so much I ended up eating in another of their establishments.

Sammy’s is always the our favorite place to get boiled crawfish during season. Best flavor and size I’ve seen from all the other restaurants offering boiled crawfish in the area. Other food options are always consistent and great tasting as well.

We go here frequently and they have the best crawfish around. The blackened alligator is also very good. The service is always outstanding and there is a great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Went for supper after a long drive to BTR; went with a friend and her two grandchildren...fine young men. Was craving crawfish and ordered three pounds. They came, hot and quickly. Unfortunately, they were too spicy (and I like spicy!)...the native Louisianans could hardly eat...More

Excellent crawfish but other food is average and not my first restaurant of restaurants to visit. Service is above average. Prices were on the high side for boiled seafood.

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.

Went to the one on Highland. Waitress did not write down our order which is OK except that she got it wrong. The fried green tomatoes were soggy and, worse, sweet! Never tasted that flavor profile in FGT. Gumbo was average at best. Lima beans...More
