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!

we have been to this place literally DOZENS of times and it is ALWAYS good. Never had a bad meal here, never bad service. Low turnover of staff, which means they get to know you and you get to know them. Can be very busy, and the parking is--- shall we say--- challenging. There are some water views of the... More

This place is an old standby serving family style Italian food. Its a go to place for before or after a movie or to meet up with friends for food and conversation. Its definitely either a family place or a place for the over 50 crowd. Almost a throw back restaurant. That's not necessarily a bad thing. The food is... More

We have been to Sam & Joe's many times, but not in a few years. We went last night at 7. We had a 15 minute wait for a table. Looking inside from the waiting area we could see empty tables. The restaurant has booths running lengthwise on both sides, with tables down the middle. None of the tables (there... More

I've been a customer for about 20 years. Consistent, good food at a great price. Pizza is a specialty here. Lots of variety on the menu as well as specials. Last night, I enjoyed the swordfish special. Generous portions; attentive staff.
