If your visiting Danvers MA. I would highly recommend Sam & Joe's Restaurant! They have very good food. You have a choice of Italian food or just a hamburger and fires. However, this is no ordinary hamburg and fries. The burgers are really big, juicy and thick. They will make to your order. The fries were delicious and had a... More

8 ladies having lunch. Great quiet place to chat and have a view of the water. Perfect for us. Food was quite good and the waitress Carol friendly and efficient. Would return.

Late lunch, passing through and a delighted surprise! The haddock was thick and tender with a great batter. The Rueben was great! Large portions, good wait staff, full bar.

Clean, friendly atmosphere. Best pizza! Large variety of toppings. Excellent thin crust. Toppings cover entire pizza, edge to edge. Our server, Carol, was exceptional.

We had lunch here as a family of 8. We ordered pizza and beer. There was a great selection of pizza on the menu (which is all Italian food). Thin crust lots of cheese and a nice sauce. There was not one scrap left when we were done. Great little place.

This is the standard of pizza that I rate other by--that thin crust maybe slightly charred along the edges, is sublime in my estimation. That, with their excellent side salad, is so good, you have to stop yourself from murmuring m-m-m-m-m while eating. Their back extension, not new anymore but newly redecorated, elevates the dining experience. Booths give each party... More

A neighborhood Italian restaurant with meals cooked to order. Our drinks and breadbasket were served in a timely fashion. The bread was a disappointment. Bread was chewy and not at all crusty. Our meals were delicious,...eggplant parm, chicken parm, lasagna. There is an extra charge for a house salad. Since the portions were quite large, we did not order dessert.

Good draught beers, free fresh made popcorn in the bar, thin crust, tasty pizza and good entrees as well. The service is usually always pleasant and the atmosphere is that of a "Cheers" type place.

I don't usually write reviews about places and restaurants around my home town. Then I thought why not. If someone is traveling here they might like to see what the "locals" like.. Let me start by saying I have not been to Sam and Joe's in over 20 years...not sure why either...I guess just not on my radar for some... More

We try to pick up pizza at Sam & Joes on Monday nights when they run a special that you get a free cheese pizza when you order two others. Got them last night and they hit the spot. Their pizzas are small, but the crust and sauce is perfect. Our "go to" local place!
