I eat at the bar in restaurants. Lots of regulars in this bar and the atmosphere is comfortable. TVs on the wall are not intrusive. The service is great, the food is very good, the pizza and Italian dished are excellent, but my favorite is the seafood. It always tastes fresh and so good. My husband and I like to... More

I was dreading picking a place to dine after going to the mall and a movie! There is only about 25 or more places to choose from In the area, all chain places that all use way to much salt that a couple hours after you eat you need a gallon of water,with tasteless food and poor quality. From the... More

Sam and Joe's food quality hasn't changed in all the years I've been a customer; many, many. The pizza is the best I've ever had anywhere. It's their ticket to greatness! Crispy crust, just the right amount of sauce and oil. A little high priced, but yummy. Good fish chowder on Fridays, very nice pasta dishes, and terrific calamari. There... More

I hadn't had Sam and Joe's pizza in years and NOW that I gave it another try - I'm addicted. The crust is super thin and it's absolutely perfect. Sauce and toppings are all incredibly tasty! The pizza only comes in one size so you might have to get TWO - it's THAT GOOD! We've been trying all kinds of... More

The wife and I headed out on aMonday to dinner, some restaurants are closed but none are busy. Had been a couple years and we were seated quickly as few were there. Funny, we were at the same table with the same waitress as last time. My wife ordered the meatball parm sub and I ordered the baked manicotti and... More

My wife and I love Sam and Joe's. Look, if you want fancy, than you might want to go somewhere else. If you want an excellent pizza along with some very good appetizers (we prefer the mussels) in a casual, family-oriented setting that is reasonably priced, then S & J's is your place. FYI on the décor....They just did some... More

The service was excellent. So I feel bad to write an honest review. The food tasted great. ..it was after we left that the trouble started. We had a spinach salad apt, lobster rolls and a third person in our group had the chicken parm. Two of us experienced gi distress and we think it was from the lobster roll.... More

We have been going to Sam and Joe's for many years...we now take our grandchildren. Our favorite order hasn't changed, except now we don't order "extra cheese" and usually start with a crispy crunch antiipasto, with all of the anchovies for ME! When you want to watch a game or two, you can sit in the bar, help yourself to... More
