Love this place, with its tasty food; but they are overpriced and the amount of food is okay if you’re on a calorie alert.
Easy parking, convenient location, but don’t go during lunch hour... the wait is too long if on lunch break.
Sam's Giant Manhattan Pizza is tucked away in a small shopping center off Grand Avenue in Grover Beach, a bit difficult to find if you are not looking for it. The have seating both inside and outside on the sidewalk. The menu selection is decent...and they have more items then just Pizza. They also have some specials, like a "Slice of Pizza, 3 Bread Sticks, and Soda" for $7.00 .... The Slice of Pizza is probably equivalent to 2 - 3 Pizza slices at most places. So the daily special would fill most people up for lunch. The Pizza is good, and then have multiple sizes if you want to get a whole pizza for the family, including a 30" pizza which is huge .... The staff is friendly, and the restaurant is clean, a nice place to grab a slice for lunch, or get a pizza with the family, or get take out. There are quite a few pizza places around in the Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande area, but Sam's is one of the better, would recommend trying Sam's Giant Manhattan Pizza at least once to see if you like it. They have plenty of parking so easy to get in and out of.More
We were visiting town for vacation, staying in a hotel. Decided to find a pizza joint. Did a quick search and found Sam's. Glad we did. It's a very authentic pizza place. Sam was very nice and order was made fresh. Pizza was excellent! I...highly recommend it.More
After a big Denny's failure, we got a veggie pizza from Sam's Giant Manhattan Pizza. We've had Dominos, Costco, Little Ceasars and Round Table. None compare to the quality and superior customer service. The employees recognize us when we come in. There's an old school...family feel when you walk in. We drive 20 minutes to get our pizza from Sam's and pass several pizza places on the way. We are never disappointed when we order from there. You can't beat the prices for the quality either! WE LOVE SAM'S GIANT MANHATTAN PIZZA!!More
Unexpected strip mall surprise! Found last year as was open on Christmas Eve- Have been back multi times.
Nothing fancy, but friendly fun place with good, solid regular (not exotic/weird combos) PIZZA!
The giant pizza is massive. Easily the largest pizza I have ever seen. It tastes just ok and it is definitely nowhere near as good as NYC pizza. It is very saucy, not enough cheese and it has a dense bread like crust. NY pizza...is light airy chewy crust, little sauce and lots of cheese. I only give it 3 stars bc of the size. It is truly a site to see. One pizza can feed 7 or more people. It is very pricey 39.00 for the giant pizza.More
We just attended a function in Grover Beach that was catered by Sam's. Huge pizzas and salad were delivered and it gave us a chance to try 4 different pizzas. They were very good. Today we went to Sam's to try a sandwich. We shared...a Chicken and Mushroom oven heated sandwich that was about a foot long. One of the very best we have had. We will visit here whenever we are in the area. Sam is a great guy !More
After reading some of the reviews about Sam's I was expecting the service and pizza to be better. The pizza was good, but nothing other than your typical pizza. I thought the prices were high and they didn't give refills on drinks. We also tried...a calzone and that was tasty. Overall it was okay, but I wouldn't go back again.More
