Genuinely Sam's ...

There's something special about Sam's foods ... they're genuinely Sam's! Most places you visit, you can say, "that taste's like _____ pizza", but not at Sam's Place. We order it well done and it comes out like a cracker! Yes, like a cracker. The first time I ate it, I found it very strange, but... read more

My sister, 2 girlfriends and I ate here this week and enjoyed it very much! The atmosphere is cozy and not overdecorated, just a bar and booths. The food was excellent and prices were good,e specially for a Hamptons restaurant. The rigatoni a la vodka was a big hit! We shred a personal pizza as an appetizer because their pizza... More

We go to Sam's usually before the movies. There are many times the restaurant is packed with moviegoers but the waitstaff is consistently friendly and efficient. The pizza with bacon is particularly enjoyable. The prices are fair and the menu is extensive

We eat here often when going to the East Hampton Movies and have never been disappointed. Pizza is great with nice thin, crisp crust and other entrees are just as good. Love this place

My second time at Sams while visiting friends in East Hampton. Both times it was on a Friday evening. No reservations accepted so be prepared to wait at least 15 or 20 minutes for a table. The menu is quite extensive I knew that the portions are large so I split an order of baked clams with my husband. I... More

It is an instutition in East Hampton. Probably the oldest restaurant in the village. We get pizza. Plain with less tomato sauce, medium size. Always the same. Thin crust, and the tomato sauce is with fresh tomatos, not a delivered can of sauce. How can I tell other that the waitress saying so. The tomato leaves no red smear wheb... More

Been going to Sam's for a long time. Love the low key unpretentious scene, really loved the pizza. But it's not the same. The crust is soft and kinda soggy now whereas it used to be thin and crispier. So Sam's, if you're reading this, our extended family says PLEASE BRING BACK THE THIN CRUST!! We loved it!!

My wife and I just wandered around East Hampton looking for a reasonably priced meal and were fortunate enough to walk into Sam's. The atmosphere felt like a friendly neighborhood bar & restaurant which it clearly was. Even better than the atmosphere was the actual food. The pizza was the best I have ever eaten and I was glad we... More
