“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

The pizza was yummy! We ended up eating there twice. We ordered a pizza without mushrooms but I guess the cook wasn't paying attention. The manager apologized, comped us and gave us coupons. It's not an expensive place so I would go again. It was good.

“Good Food, Bad Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Like I said the food was good for this type of establishment. Pizza was good, chicken Thai app and asparagus app was good also. Unfortunately he service was sooooo slow as to make the experience unenjoyable. Atmosphere was nice.

“Uh....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Sammy's used to be reliable...not ever great but always satisfying. Now, it is just awful. Our Caesar salad was overdosed on garlic, and the pizza----Sammy's was once famous for pizza---- was tasteless and, no kidding, soggy.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Just got into town and looking for a quick but good place to eat. Stopped here at random and we were pleasantly surprised. The pizza was amazing great combinations of flavors and cheeses. It was nice to see they also catered to the gluten free and vegetarian folks (I am neither, but this usually means the cooks can really cook). The prices were moderate for gourmet pizzas, we did not order a salad but saw many being served and the portion sizes were large. W would visit here again if in the area.
