Typically sports bar... lots of TVs, decent bar menu, great "on-tap" beer selection with decent prices. Tuesday nights are Bike Nights. Occasional Live Music.

We really enjoyed ourselves. Great wings. Cold beer. Great atmosphere. Sat under a opened garage door until major thunderstorm rolled in. Staff was great. The only negative was the home made chips had sat and were not that good. Would defiantly go back.

Sammies is such a welcoming and fun place. If you're a sports fan , it's awesome. I'm a steelers fan and during steelers games it's packed with black and yellow. There are TVs everywhere to see the game clearly. They even decorated with balloons and...More
