Dined here the other night for our anniversary. Decided on the Chowder to start with, and WOW, I have had some chowders in my time, but this was in a league of its own. Just perfect. Needs to be a regular menu item and not just a special. We are coming back soon, just for that. :) See less

Thank you to everyone at Sammy's for making our friend's belated 40th get-together memorable and welcoming. To Pervez and your staff on duty, your service was excellent. To the chefs we don't see, thank you for the great food. The menu options for food and drink offer a variety for all. Many may come for the view, and I guess the lobster platter, but with the staff who love what they do, it makes this spot an extra 'must-return-to' for food, drink and merriment. See less

Sammy's on the Marina was good on the whole. The Salmon and the Flounder were really nicely done. The Coffin Bay Oysters were also good. What detracted from the good food was the ambience. It gets very loud in the restaurant. Outdoor seating options don't have heaters - it was freezing. Some general cleaning could be improved, including the bathrooms. See less

I would have left 4.5 star but apparently that's not a thing.... :) My wife and I had a very pleasant dinner at Sammys (12/03/22). All the staff who waited on us were very pleasant/friendly and attentive. Food was really good, apart from maybe the desserts which were a bit underwhelming. We also had an issue with bones in our salmon, but the staff sorted out a replacement meal very quickly. They were also were very apologetic and threw in some freebies. The head chef even visited us and apologised. Good experience here, 4.5 out of 5.0 :) See less

Highly recommended for hosting events. Fantastic location, service, food and overall experience. We went to Sammysonthemarina for dinner one night and thought it would be a great location for us to have our wedding. We asked about the same and we were immediately connected to Pervez. Planning the wedding + lunch with Pervez was very easy, nothing was too difficult or impossible for him. He took genuine interest in understanding our guests and the type of food they would enjoy. We were given a lot of flexibility in choosing the food which made the experience good for our guests on the day. They printed out beautiful menus and the tables were done really nicely. They had no issue with us bringing in a big arch and adding our own decorations. The venue looked beautiful on the day and the food was delicious. The chef did an amazing job at serving the wedding cake with sliced strawberries and orange slices. The staff was very helpful and around the whole time. Pervez himself was there the whole time and ensured everything ran smooth and the guests were looked after. We are very happy with the whole experience. See less

We came for dinner in early March 2022. The staff were very accommodating and service was quite good. The Marinara Nero was very good, the quality of the seafood was excellent, with thick juicy prawns, tender scallops, and tasty clams. Unfortunately the garlic prawns was ruined by the ridiculous amount of pepper and spice the chef added. This is meant to be a French dish - extremely rich and creamy. Not something so hot that it is unpleasant to consume and makes your stomach turn all night. The saving grace was the actual prawns which were huge and juicy. Unfortunately they were covered in the foul sauce. I'd steer clear of this dish. The cocktails were a bit disappointing. I had the tequila mojito which was sickly sweet and completely unbalanced.

4.5 / 5.0 The views on the second floor is absolutely marvellous! The sauces on every single dishes is the cherry on the cake 🧁. The presentation of food and the taste have nothing to complain about. But one thing they can probably improve is that the booking confirmation. I understand we book on Valentine’s Day, which would be a busy and difficult time time for the restaurant especially under the pandemic capacity restrictions. But u guys really don’t have to call us 3 times to “ask” as to arrive early couple days before the date (so u can have more guests at the night? I don’t really understand.) We are not really quiet happy about that. See less

Dinner here with some friends. Fantastic location, second floor has great views along the beach at sunset. Staff were new and had the pressures of running short with Covid but were all very pleasant and helpful. Mixture of dishes on our table - most were happy with meals. I had Sammy's favourite and was a bit disappointed - in particular the garfish was tasteless and soggy - almost like half shallow fried. Rest of the meal was good, but when paying a premium you expect the whole dish to be good. See less

Good experience overall. Fantastic location. Scollops undercooked and partially raw, though presented well with good puree and veggies to compliment. Flavour wise spot on. Garish - crumb to fish ratio a bit heavy on the crumb side for my liking. Order the whiting instead. Bread rolls a little hefty on the price as a starter. Staff fantastic and attentive despite reviews mentioning their performance. Hats off to you all and well done. Price to food wise, yes and no depending what you order. Would I return? Yes. See less

Firstly, I would say the customer service and the manners are excellent. I've been to many fine dining restaurant and Sammy's is in a high standard. The GM is very polite and professional. The food portion is big, the place is beautiful and servers are always available around to help. Taste wise, the food was great quality too. My partner drives so he can't get a cocktail so they made him a wonderful mocktail (which tastes even better than my cocktail, lol). Mistakes on order are handled professionally and nicely, we are very impressed and will be most likely coming back. Thank you! See less

We were dissapointed after our visit on 22nd January 2022 so I wrote the review below. I am very pleased to say that Pervez the manager has contacted me with regards to my review, and has offered me a free coeliac friendly meal to compensate. He has also arranged for me to provide information regarding catering for coeliacs to his head chef. I have left my initial review here, but upgraded the star rating to a three because Pervez has responded with such concern and willingness to remedy. I will review again after our next visit so stay tuned. Thankyou. ...Waited 20 minutes to order wine on arrival, then had to ask twice for it to be delivered to our table. I am coeliac when I rang prior they assured me they could cater for me. Their menu is mainly deep fried seafood, but they do not have a separate facility for gluten free foods, so extremely limited selection available. First choice of crab for entree not available gluten free. Second choice of prawn cocktail had to be sent back as had deep fried garnish covering it. Replacement was 4 unshelled prawns with mashed avocado on top - extremely messy to dig prawns out from avocado and poor option to have to peel yourself at a supposedly 5 star restaurant. My main @ $45 was plain whiting and small bowl of salad. On a positive note my husband's meal of scallops then Sammy's Favourite were both pleasant. Overall poor service, staff knowledge of dietary requirements , and actual meal dissapointing. Lots of room for improvement. See less

Booking online was quick and simple. The restaurant was beautifully set up and the menu had plenty of options. We decided on one of the platters and it could have easily fed 3 or even 4 people. (Came with a bowl of chips too). Staff were very friendly and had a good laugh with us at my husbands lack of restaurant etiquette! Food was absolutely amazing had so many flavours and cooked to perfection! Will be our go to from now on. See less

My partner and I came here for her birthday dinner and had an incredible time. The service is polite, attentive and very professional. The views of the ocean are top class aswell. As someone who doesn't like seafood very much, I was very pleasantly surprised with the gnocchi. You could tell it was made fresh in house and was incredible. My partner said the oysters she had were the best she's ever had, and that's HUGE coming from her! Thank you for an amazing experience, we look forward to returning soon. See less

Came here on a whim for some oysters last Saturday... Best oysters I've had in quite a while and the octopus was so fresh and beautiful I actually still feel guilty for eating him. Tasty, fresh garlic bread too. Lovely place for lunch and the staff were really attentive and friendly. See less
