Changes are coming to Sammy D’s, the popular and affordable restaurant located at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City. The restaurant will now have two personalities. The Sammy D’s you love will still be there. What's coming soon is a very special after-hours Sammy D’s, too. I recently had the opportunity to speak with Lee Sanchez, Director of Food and Beverage at Harrah’s Resort, about some of the exciting transformation.

Lee assured me that Sammy D’s will still have the superb cuisine they are famous for, only now there will be more. Located directly across the hall from Atlantic City’s hottest night club, The Pool After Dark, the restaurant will now cater to late night noshers on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturday, the evenings The Pool rocks out. Enter the new Sammy D’s, Atlantic City's newest and best gastropub!

There’s a new bar bites menu with scrumptious items like these.

  • Bacon-wrapped Shrimp
  • Lollipop Buffalo Wings (one of Sammy D’s most popular items ever!)
  • Au Poivre Skewers
  • Duck Buns
  • Bronx Bomber Flatbread
  • Little Monster Burgers
  • Breakfast Burgers
  • Carnitas Tacos
  • Spicy Mac and Cheese

There will also be a new late night, small plates menu for hungry clubbers who may want a little bit more than a bite.

The bar at Sammy D’s, always fantastic, now has its own signature drink. This new specialty of the house libation is called the “Chow Masters Splash,” a light, somewhat fizzy cocktail made with Aperol, Prosecco, a splash of soda and a slice of orange. I can attest to the fact that it’s wonderful, having tasted one or two myself. And you can enjoy the "Chow Masters Splash" and all the other wonderful cocktail seven days a week in season.

Lee also told me that there are some design changes in the works. The section of Sammy D’s surrounding the bar is going to be redone with comfortable couches and furniture, making it the best lounge area in Atlantic City.

All of this new Sammy D’s goodness begins Memorial Day Weekend. If you haven’t eaten at Sammy D’s yet, you’ll have to come and try out all the new yummies. On another most excellent note, Lee told me that as of Memorial Day, everything at Sammy D’s will be Jersey Fresh.

So the next time you’re hungry late at night in Atlantic City, you now know where to go. Head on over to Harrah’s Resort in the Marina section of Atlantic City and enjoy all Sammy D’s has to offer.

Enjoy the food!
