Convenient but just Ok

We decided to eat here solely based on location. There is a decent selection of menu items (mostly hot dog, hamburger type stuff). The food was ok but I thought it was a little pricey for what we got. The guy who waited on us was great, very friendly, patient and helpful.

Every time I enter this joint I loose all track of time. Drinking mini bottles and eating footlong hotdogs.... Use to be open 24/7 times have changed during the off season

Very disappointed. I had heard about the world famous hot dogs but when I tried one it was terrible. Hot dog was small and had a rubbery texture. One and done for me.

The best hotdogs in the world as my father said 25 years ago. Still true today. Local place you have to visit.

Yes i know its a very old diner serving greasy beach food, but the place was grimy, dried food, sauces, grease covering pretty much everything. They also don't serve seafood any more accept for bland fried shrimp. You go there for the charm and nostalgia, but service and atmosphere feels like they stopped caring years ago. Its a shame. Its... More

This is a staple of the pie but the food is slipping. Hot dogs are disappointing but the fries were good. Booze aplenty. I like to know it's open but I didn't like bringing my son.

For at least the last quarter of a century that we have spent summer vacations at the beach in Garden City, S.C., there has been a staple: “Coffee – 5 cents” said the sign outside Sam’s Corner, an eatery across the street from the Garden City pier. And I’ve partaken a few mornings. But alas, you can’t get coffee for... More

% of us stopped in for a foot long Hot Dog . This was a good while back. When my daughter brought my dog to me I thought it was a joke, a hot dig about the size of my little finger and long. A real RIPOFF . Stay Away and save your money !

I didn't have one problem with this place. Service was great. Food was good and has a reasonable wait for my food. Their fries are very good too. (:

We have been going to the small establishment for many years now, very disappointed this time! It must be under new management! The floors were filthy there was a stench owner of fried Grease. I do not think I would recommend it after my last visit.
