Before attending the game, we stopped by Sammy's Grill. I had the hamburger steak and my girlfriend had the fried shrimp. No complaints, the food was great, the wait was not too bad for as busy as it was. The drive was a little far from the stadium, but worth it!

Sammy's is awesome!! We've always had great service and even better food there. I tried the Buffalo wings for the first time. They were great, crispy, and spicy. Plenty of beer and wine choices. Great place for dinner!!

The food is great but be prepared to wait!!! If you love seafood, theres a great selection. Its on the pricier side but not as expensive as other restaurants in the area...just hard to go often on a budget.

We enjoy eating at Sammys, we enjoy the Fish, Shrimp and Oyster dinners. We also enjoy the Hamburger Steak and Salads. Food is always consistent! Other than a wait most visits we have no complaints!

My wife and I just left. It was a great atmosphere with very friendly service. However, the food was good, but not great. I got the fried shrimp po'boy and my wife had the fried catfish. We finished with the Milky Way pie. It's a solid choice, but not the best ever.

So delicous! Enjoyed tender fried catfish w/light breading covered w/scrumptious crawfish etouffee' & fried shrimp also w/light batter! Friendly patient waitress allowed us to change seating area d/t cool a/c draft. Only negative is that we waited to pay; finally took it to the register.

Great wait staff, quick service, ok food. Reasonably priced. There is a bar side and a restaurant side, the bar side actually looked like fun. The restaurant side is spacey, but the food is bar food. The onion rings were fabulous, everything else....not so much.

Thank Larie J
