So many tables unused

We have been to Sam & Joe's many times, but not in a few years. We went last night at 7. We had a 15 minute wait for a table. Looking inside from the waiting area we could see empty tables. The restaurant has booths running lengthwise on both sides, with tables down the middle. None of the tables... read more

This place is an old standby serving family style Italian food. Its a go to place for before or after a movie or to meet up with friends for food and conversation. Its definitely either a family place or a place for the over 50 crowd. Almost a throw back restaurant. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The food is... More

I've been a customer for about 20 years. Consistent, good food at a great price. Pizza is a specialty here. Lots of variety on the menu as well as specials. Last night, I enjoyed the swordfish special. Generous portions; attentive staff.

A Danvers, Ma. local spot. You can have seafood, Italian, pizza, or steaks. All of the above are great choices... Their pizza is well known and a great favorite..It's not a fancy establishment at all, but you have to try it.

We headed out for a late lunch and stopped in at Sam and Joes. We both got the meatball parm sandwich which was great. Meatballs were wonderful. Service was good and we will be back for sure.

This was our first time here, but our son is very familiar with this restaurant. It's a nice little place on the water in Danversport(as I call it). Food and service were excellent and very reasonable. Great place for lunch and it has a friendly bar too!! Our son had pizza and he always raves about it.

The best thin crust pizza. Ask for it crispy. I ate at the bar. Everyone is very friendly. You usually end up talking to the person sitting next to you at the bar. Nice neighborhood family restaurant with a dining room separate from the bar.

Two of three meals served 10 minutes before the third meal. Asked for drink never arrived. Server began boxing up leftover while one person was still eating. Pricey and terrible service.
