Good place for a quick lunch. The Italian sandwiches here are very good, as is the pastrami. Luncheon specials offer very good prices. The chicken Parmesan is good here too.

I came here for lunch. I ordered the turkey Dagwood sandwich which was their August special ($5.75 instead of $7). It was ready in about five minutes. It was a good sandwich stuffed with turkey. Okay place for lunch.

We go here or have food from here every time we visit Maine. The food never disappoints from the salads to the pizza to the spaghetti to the AMAZING bread! This is a must have when you visit.

We've never been to Sam's so experiencing fresh chicken salad (for me) and a meatball sub (for him) that was anything but run-of-the-mill fast food, came as a delightful surprise. As we are on the road a lot, it's our new go-to chain: fresh, bountiful,...More
