We are regulars at Sammy's on.the Marina for a reason. The reason is that they have the best, the freshest , and the most amazing food in the entire Glenelg. If you haven't tried Sammy's on the Marina yet, or haven't been here for years, you don't know what you re missing! The new owners have made huge and very positive changes that will make your tastebuds sing! Absolutely delicious, and the best service in Adelaide ! The staff go well above and beyond of what is usually expected in a restaurant. Very attentive, and quick on the feet, responsive and eager to please. The food is always fresh, hot, delicious and varied. Huge choices of seafood, meat, poultry and vegetarian. Even a Vegan menu! And the best I have ever tasted in Adelaide! Thank you Sammy's on the Marina. Happy every time! Outdoor dining · Child-friendly · Curbside Pickup
