Staple

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.

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

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.

This is truly a greasy spoon restaurant with everything fried. Pretty basic food. It's worth the experience to eat there once.

We have never had bad food here and we eat here a couple times during our stay at the Kingfisher. The service is slow. They need more help because they get very busy. If you don't feel like coffee at the hotel it is only 5 cents at Sams.

Best hot dogs in this area. Some of the worst service we ever had. They are open 24 hours a day, but do not serve till 7 AM. One server was nice, the other just ignored everyone. The food was fresh and hot. Good firm hot dogs. Free coffee with breakfast.
