Just them a try.

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.

We have eaten at Sam's before but, not at this location. We had a late lunch here last Saturday. I had a Bud lite and a footlong hotdog. The beer was served in an ice covered mug. Great! The hotdog was good, average to above average. We shared an order of onion rings that were above average. My wife had... More

This is a great little place to go for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Even for a late night pop in after a stroll on the beach. Nostalgic and convenient. The only downside is they have an old sign advertising cheap white Russians, but it's just that...an old sign. They do make some mixed drinks there, which are still not too... More

The footlong came with the chili sauce, mustard, and onions....this is the closest thing I have come to a hot dog place we had back in Pennsylvania...called The very Best... living here almost 2 years ...ya miss some...

Been here a few times and always have had great hotdogs. Prices aren't to bad for a great dog. Service is always great. Will be coming back for many years to come.

Sam's boasts a 24 hour diner, however in the office season check their hours first. Mid September their sign on the door said open 7am-? but we found them open at close to 10pm. Don't expect anything too fancy. They have good greasy comfort food. Chili dog was awesome. They toasts their buns and deep fry their hotdogs. Double cheese... More

Although its been there for -- well, longer than I've been going to GCB, and that's 30 years. Chili cheese dog is still the best if you like greasy, gooey dogs. Coffee is hot & strong. Friendly staff & customers not in a hurry are generally present along with the Coffee.

We vacation quite a bit in Garden City. Sam's is a very busy place, but cool to visit if you are wanting a quick bite. They deep fry their hot dogs & they are pretty good. Right across the street from the Garden City Pier.

Staying in Garden City, we'd driven by this location every time we ventured in and back out of the area. I had appreciated the slight "gaudiness" of the place figuring it looked like how a diner or dive should of sorts (if that makes sense). They have several food items advertised on the exterior wall and it was one for... More
