Great pizza

The pizza is really very good and there are a lot of choices of toppings. The pasta and salads are good as well.

We had Mom's birthday party here with just under 30 people in attendance. We had a package of pizza, salad and drinks. The food was wonderful and the service was superb. The catering manager was very easy to work with as we did have some special needs.

Excellent food...pricey adult beverages. Nice reception hall with supplied linens. Staff was polite and made sure dinner & dessert plates were picked up in a timely fashion.

Looking for a local pizza place while on a over night visit. Great Pizza, friendly staff and waitress. So glad I paid attention to the reviews and ate here with my son. If in the area again, I would return.

We had our wedding reception here. The food was great.... Guests were extremely impressed with the sheet cake (better than the wedding cake that we brought in). The staff was very accommodating during set up and reception. Wouldn't have picked any other restaurant for the celebration of our big day.

My 2 school aged children and I stopped in Rockford for a midway overnight stop on our trip from Minnesota to Kentucky. As a frugal mom, eating out with 2 kids does not happen too often, but we are on vacation!!! Sam's came up on my "Retail Me Not" app with a coupon for $8 off w/purchase of 2 entrees.... More

We just had our wedding reception here on May 2nd. We arrived Friday night after 10 to set up. Sam's closes at 11 but Gino let us stay until we finished setting up and helped us with a couple finishing touches. He was willing to make any changes I needed to be happy with everything. Obviously, I was not at... 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.
