I thought I was at Al's Diner from Happy Days

Was looking for a quick inexpensive lunch. I had a burger, fries, and soft drink and my wife had a hot dog. The flavor of everything was tasty but rather expensive.

Very pricey and not that good. I belive this place had so much business because of the convince to the beach and pier. I will not go back since it made all 5 of my family members sick. It was extremely expensive and I feel like places like this makes people feel like things are over priced at the beach.

If you like deep fried food this is the place for you. Their foot long chili dogs are pretty good. We went a couple times, and my only complaint is some of the kids that come in without their parents get out of hand.

I have been eating here with my family since I was a little girl and now I bring my growing family every year. Every summer the quality is the same (amazing) and the service is always %110. It is my favorite spot in all of myrtle beach to get great food and catch up on my people watching. Keep up... More

If you have a hunkering for some good fast-food and some local favorites then you need to hit Sam's Corner. Open 24 hours, laid back, old-style operation.

This is the most disgusting place I have even been to. I did not eat after seeing the handling of the food. I ordered a hot dog with sauerkraut and the cook pick up sauerkraut with his bare hand and flung it on the grill like it was snot. He shook his hand to get the water off and I... More

The employees have new shirts that read: "We have upped our standards. So up yours". I have been visiting Sam's since the mid '90s and stop in every trip to Garden City. This is not your family atmosphere eatery. It is a true old-style beach joint, which is it's charm. Most people have never experienced this type of place before.
