We are located in Northeast Rockford only 1 mile off of Interstate 90. We are close to the ISC/Sportscore II, Carlson Ice Arena, and Rock Valley College.

Pre-concert dinner

My wife decided we should go to Sam's on Riverside before my son's kindergarten Christmas concert on a Friday night. I was a little concerned our wait and service time would be too long, but I was pleasantly surprised we had no wait and were promptly served. My wife and I had the daily specials... read more

We had a late Sunday lunch here. There weren't a lot of people. Everything started okay except when I was in the middle of eating, I saw a tiny worm coming out of the piece of kale on my plate. We told the waiter standing nearby, he took the piece of kale with the worm in it. After a few... More

I love all sorts of Pizza, and Sam's had a very good one, specifically the thin crust special. We ordered an extra large to be delivered to our hotel room. It arrived smoking hot, and the total cost was right at $35 including delivery and a tip. There was pizza left for breakfast and lunch. 5 star and A+ rating.

On October 18, 2014 we had a memorial banquet there in honor of my step mom who had recently passed away. The banquet facility was very nice. I was able to get in early and setup some things prior to the event no problem. The best way I can describe the service for our event was that the staff was... More

We had our wedding reception@Sam's on July 12, 2014. Gino and his staff made this day all about Kesha & Tyrone. We loved EVERYTHING about our reception.

My husband and I had a date night at Sam's with a Groupon, and both of our meals were wonderful. I had the chicken spinach special, my husband also had a chicken dish. We so enjoyed ourselves, the server was very friendly and attentive and the owner stopped by our table to chat. Overall I'd recommend it and we will... More
