What could be better than watching in the sun go down, overlooking the beautiful water on the South Australian coast and feasting on decadent seafood with a crisp glass of wine? For us, not much… And for the best? Sammy’s on the Marina takes the cake. Located on the Glenelg shore, just south of Adelaide, this Holdfast Promenade restaurant has a menu brimming with fresh seafood straight off the boat with a million dollar view to match. We can’t go past the freshly shucked South Australian oysters and bucket-o’-mussels to start, followed by crispy skinned Atlantic salmon or the deluxe seafood platter for two. This is a must-visit restaurant for fish lovers – you won’t be disappointed.
The service was perfect. The food was delicious. Was a bit disappointed that there were two latge birthday parties in the dining area as we had hoped for a quiet dinner.
Beautiful location, food was excellent as was the service, and we visited on a public holiday. Would highly recommend. Only criticism was paper table clothes.
Wonderful service. Food fantastic. They do that little bit extra that makes a difference!we got the table we asked for. Not to noisy and a lovely sunset
Sammy's on the Marina is well located with views out to the sea. There are other restaurants and bars near by so the atmosphere is vibrant on a Saturday night. We had a table indoors but close to the outdoor area which was great as the night we were there was warm and summery . We were spoilt for choices with the menu and ended up ordering the deluxe seafood platter, which we really enjoyed. The service was good and we had a thoroughly enjoyable night.
Arrived half hour early which wasn’t a problem with staff. Excellent waiting staff particularly young female who recommended a particular wine which was rejected by my wine snobbish ( dear friend ). We both had to agree that the recommended wine was far superior. We shared theDeluxe Platter but could have done ( jokingly ) about how well we had attacked it! Mind you we didn’t manage to complete the platter but it was absolutely superb. On a personal note I am not sophisticated in such surroundings but I was never made to feel inadequate to be a guest. My heartfelt thanks to the staff of Sammy’s. Chr
Lovely location overlooking the sea and Patawalonga outlet - the seafood was delicious (but an additional piece of lemon would go well with crumbed fish) The service was excellent. Definitely on my list as a place to book for that special celebration- we arrived early before the lunch rush, and enjoyed a quiet drink and conversation before ordering. Highly recommended.
Great food in a wonderful setting. The service was slow albeit the venue was very full. The outside we were given table was a little disappointing given that we booked some time ago. We were told that we needed to ask for a window table inside when booking however we were not given this option when we booked with Quandoo. Notwithstanding my party of eight all had an enjoyable evening.
What a meal and enjoyable experience. Went to celebrate my Birthday and Daughters Birthday and my other daughters engagement to her boyfriend of 4 years who all came from Chicago to visit us in Adelaide. Jo made our dinner a great experience. I am sure that me and my husband will be back!
Food was very nice and fresh nice atmosphere lots of laughs and enjoyment and the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The only issue was the table was outside and it was cold and windy other than that it was a good experience for us.
Sammys food was absolutely delicious. The waiting staff very friendly and efficient. Was there for Valentine's day. Maybe a rose for each couple eould have bern a nice touch. The only disappointment wax the coffee.
