Brenton, the restaurant manager greeted us and made us feel very special. Taram and Sweta looked after us throughout the evening and were particularly professional and the service was unobtrusive. We'll definitely be back as it was such a fabulous experience!
Overall a good experience, though we did have oysters missing in the seafood platter.
Dear Mr BillC, Thank you for dining with us, it was an absolute pleasure to serve you. Management will be sure to pass on your feedback to the team. Team Sammy's hopes to see you in the future. Kind regards Lisa (Supervisor)

Having flown from the Gold Coast to take my sister somewhere special for her 80th birthday, which they knew about. Not a cup cake with a sparkler plus there were only 8 people there. What few staff seemed more interested in a conference for the next day.
Plus I had the half lobster for $130 which was a total rip off. Never again & will now do a trip advisor review
Hi Barbara We are sorry to hear about your experience . But we would like to clarify here that we always buy live lobsters from kangaroo island and its cash on delivery and expensive .Not only that all our produce is fresh. we follow certain standard and we are sticked when it comes to food quality and service. Further on your comment $47 was for Aussie favourite you ordered which is our most popular dish on the menu contains one piece of whitening nearly 200gm, one garfish , complimentary salad , 3 piece of prawn skewer with peppers and chips with the sauce. Apart from that where ever you go cocktails are between $13 to $22. And you got a complimentary glass of wine as well which was another $10. We try to cater for every one and maintain the best standard . We always want to achieve the customer satisfaction .. Please don't be so harsh with your comment . Thanks any way for you visit.

Big bill at the end for an average platter. Have no issues spending the coin if the food is good. But I’m afraid this was seriously over priced for a very average feed. It’s a great restaurant in general so I hope they can improve on the quality
One waiter had appalling manners, he lent over our table and said "it smells disgusting in here, it smells like smoke" (we dnt smoke but it was the large table in the room with us). However the female waiter was really nice.
At the end of the night we waited 15mins to receive our bill then another 10mins before we tracked a staff down to collect our money. Meanwhile we has our tierd son wanting to leave but no one would help us or service, we were told to wait.
60% of the food was fantastic the rest was cold or tasted horrible.
We definitely have had much better service there before then we did this night.
Dear Mrs Shelly On the behalf of Sammy's Management we sincerely apologise for your dining experience. The service you received is of no way our service standards. Management will be investigating and addressing this issue immediately to ensure this does not occur again. Thank you for your feedback & we do hope you will give us another go in the future. On the 19th of October Sammy's will be launching a new summer menu. once again thank you for your feedback. Kind regards Sammy's Management
great food and service and of course location-is bit expensive but i think is worth it
An upmarket restaurant with magnificent views over the bay. Great service and ambiance. Staff were friendly and efficient. It was a little disappointing to see guests in jeans on a saturday night, but maybe I'm showing my age (40!). The food was delicious, but pricy.
Friendly but absent staff. Have dined on several occasions in the past & have always been pleased with service & food. On this occasion i don't feel the platter was worth the $360 it cost & staff were hard to understand if found.
Hesitant to return or recommend .
Absolutely amazing food and service pervez alam and staff gave us a outstanding welcoming above and beyond our expectations and we are looking forward to coming to Sammy’s again soon
Sammys is a great place for fresh seafood, ive now eaten here a couple of times and I have not been disappointed, food was fresh and amazing and the staff were very happy and service was first class..
Dined with my partner for a special occasion. The service and food was perfect. We ordered an entree of garlic prawns to share and as a main the grilled seafood platter along with a beautiful Hentley farm riesling. It was totally worth the price. The lobster was absolutely delicious. The whiting and Garfish was cooked to perfection. The SA king prawns were so fresh and delectable which went well with our wine. The Marinated octopus was well balanced in flavour and acidity. At the end the staff treated us to a little surprise with little pastry cakes and fresh fruit. Thank you team Sammy's we will be returning and thank you for making our dining experience memorable.
Considering the class of restaurant, we would have expected the table setting be of a better standard, eg., cutlery for each dish. We also expected napkins to be placed across our laps by the waiter.
Food was good, and serving sizes were great value for money. Desert was underwhelming (I suspect it was not made in-house). Pleasant experience- but not outstanding.
Thank you for the experience,first time there,the food was amazing,compliments to the chef,we will be back for sure
Very Noisy, average food & expensive Definitely not as good as we normally experience there. Not a good night.
Staff could not have been more helpful. Food was great
Service was fantastic, Food was amazing. Great sea views.
Place was very empty, had to wait over 20 mins to put in an order for a drink, service very slow and food was certainly not value for money.
I came for dinner with the wife, it was the first time at sammys, we were very happy, we had the grilled seafood platter, and even know it was alittle pricey it was worth it. The food was amazing and the customer service was top class thank you sammys..
We will be back soon
Excellent food, beautiful view with great atmosphere and superab service .
The scallops were a highlight-best ever .
Definitely come back .
The food tasted great, but for the high cost the service was sow and lacking. Once we had made our order, the service staff didn't come near us for the rest of the night. We had to ask for our plates to be cleared between courses and for our next course to come out. We had to continually ask for drinks (we asked and were forgotten about so had to find someone else to try again). In a regular cafe this wouldn't be a problem, but you pay a premium price here so do expect better.
Hello Matt Thank you for taking the time to write. I wanted to let you know how sorry we are for this . Here at Sammys on the Marina, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. And in this instance, we clearly dropped the ball. We want to learn more about what happened and how we can make things right. Please write us at email@example.com@au Regards Management Sammys on the Marina
Lovely Meal and service. Ate outside as lovely day, chairs a little uncomfortable, probably would have eaten inside if we had our time again, looked very nice in the restaurant. Used the Ent Book 25% discount and a gift voucher our family had given us. Sammys did reluctantly accept the gift voucher and quite pleasant about it but said wouldn't normally accept both. Not sure why as just like cash and they had the $'s for months, could understand if we tried to use two DISCOUNT vouchers. Having said that definitely go back again and enjoy the delicious seafood meals
Dear Thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you loved your experience; our staff will definitely be happy to read what you wrote. We put customer experience and satisfaction as our priority, and your review reaffirms the hard work we put in every day. So thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again. Regards Management Sammys on the Marina
Staff most personable, polite and helpful. Venue has a lovely outlook and pleasant ambiance. However, table was not fully laid - missing some cutlery. Was not a fan of the white paper over the table cloths - thought Sammy's was fine dining! Fine dining prices but overall standard not as good as has been in the past. Unfortunately, for a seafood restaurant found that there were some unnecessary battered seafood dishes on the menu. Although, the barramundi dish which was not battered, was very nice. Overall, did enjoy the company and evening out but debatable if I would return.
Meals were expensive but nice - Would recommend this place as glenelg quiet - support local go there
The seafood platter for 2 cost $185 and for that I expected something quite special however was extremely disappointed with what we received and also the way it was all cooked. I have had better prepared seafood from my local pub!
To say that the most flavoursome dish was the Haloumi entree, which was very tasty, does not say a lot for this "seafood" restaurant.
$26 for half a dozen Kilpatrick oysters that were drowning in bbq sauce and also had a piece of shell inside. I have cooked better myself from home.
We definitely wont be back here.
Great food , staff more than happy to help with anything
