no reason to go unless you need to sober up. Free coffee with a meal is horrible but it is a fun place to visit. A Garden City tradition but not sure why.

Sam's Corner has been a favorite of ours for many years. They have the best-tasting hamburgers around and the toppings are fresh and generous. Our teenagers even asked to go back to order hamburgers for breakfast! My husband loves their iced tea.

Love the Ocean burger. This was my first visit to Sams Corner. After seeing the Ocean burger on the menu, I figured give it a shot since its at the beach. I loved it!! Ranch on the beef and cheese was excellent. I wish I lived closer.

The hotdog was good, average to above average. We shared an order of onion rings that were above average. My wife had... More
