Sammy's has been a must do when we are in the Duluth area. Sammy's has a crispy thin crust pizza with just the right amount of sauce and toppings. On our recent lunch time visit, we ordered off the menu instead of having the well recognized lunch buffet. I've attached pictures of our meals; which included two pizzas and a... More

Always a sure bet for a good pizza. We like the thin crust - folks from out of town will request to come back. Love that they've branched out to other communities so we can enjoy Sammy's even away from home! Buffet during the week for lunch is wonderful.

Excellent thin crust pizza. I don't mind take this pizza home because it eats very well even cold. If you are staying down town Duluth this is a walk to take for a local taste. There are other locations in Duluth that maybe closer to where you may be staying.

We read about Sammy's on trip advisor, great reviews and we love pizza so we were all for it on our annual trip to Duluth! The first day of our vacation we went to the restaurant for the lunch buffet, it was about noon, we thought the buffet would be fully stocked but there were empty pizza trays on the... More

We love pizza and Sammy's is one of my hubby's fav pizza joints. I love that they have more than just pizza. This used to be a great place for our family to go, as we could all get just what we wanted and it didn't break the bank.

We found out about this little gem of a pizza place in our Duluth Tourism guide. It states it was voted the best pizza in the Northeast, and I can see why. It was super tasty and inexpensive. Where else can you feed a family of 4 for a little over $20 and be stuffed? I would definitely go back... More

If you are looking for a good pizza, Sammy's is the place to go. This place has been around since the 50's. The Sammy's Special is the favorite of my family. Give it a try, I'm sure you will like it.

We had a traditional pepperoni and also a pesto pizza. Both were excellent. Our waiter was very efficient and nice. We would recommend this family run pizza place to anyone. Prices are very reasonable.

Sammy's pizza was recommended by a local, so after watching a Huskies ballgame we were hungry and decided to give them a try. There are 4 locations in the city,so we found the closest one on our way back to our lodging. Very easy to find. I called when we left the ballpark and it was ready for pickup in... More

Outstanding pizza! The sauce is amazing. I had the Canadian bacon. Great hand-tossed crust too. Chicago is world famous for its deep dish pizza, but Sammy's is hands down one of the best thin-crust pizzas I've ever had. Excellent service to top it off!

Homemade sauce with our secret mix of seasonings. Dough that's made fresh every morning. Specialty meats and real mozzarella cheese. The sounds of crisp crust being cut into perfectly sized squares. That's what you'll find in the kitchen at Sammy's Pizza & Restaurant in Downtown Duluth.
