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. The decorations/floral centerpieces were beautiful. The meal was hot and delicious. Many of the guests were very impressed as well. It was perfect! Gino, you made our day so special. Thank you so...

The temerature was great, the food was great, the updated bathrooms were amazing, and everything was set up just perfectly. But the thing that i remember the most about my experience with... More

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

We were staying at a hotel near Sam's and decided to try it since we had heard good things about the place. The food was good and the portions were huge. We had the chicken alfredo and shrimp alfredo. Our waitress was very attentive and always checking on us for more drink or water refills. The only issue we had... More

We were traveling through Illinois and were very tired and hungry. The clerk at our hotel suggested Sam's so we decided to try it and we were glad we did. The food was excellent and the service was just as good! I got angel hair pasta and meat balls and shared it with my husband. Between the 2 of us... More

Went in tonight to satisfy some hungry kids and came out with a fantastically full and impressed view of the chefs take on what can typically be boring fried cod and Chicken Parmesan. Really surprised when a beautiful cod filet came on my plate hot, perfectly golden and surprisingly in one very large single cod filet-- not over done pieces.... More

Seated promptly, but average service- nothing special as far as interaction goes. Atmosphere is "Italian"/chandeliers, domed dining room ceiling, wooden booths (the decor at Lino's is superior). Bathrooms are clean (and I like the sinks!), but I thought the decor looked cheap in there (the picture frames). The candle at our table was not lit. They offer good selection of... More

From the moment we were graciously greeted at the door and seated, our experience at Sam's was phenomenal! Wait staff was attentive without being intrusive. Food was piping hot, served promptly and absolutely delicious! Dessert presentation couldn't be resisted, so more calories to complete our meal. We are new to the area and purchased a Sam's Groupon certificate to acquaint... More
