Pizza and salads are plentiful and delicious. Wines were great, but the sangria and mojitos were not. Had to send those back. Enjoyed it so much we went back 2 nights later and had some appetizers and a chicken dish. Skip the meatballs. Would recommend highly!

Thank you for the wonderful review! Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the cocktails, which are made with Han Soju, so are probably a little different from what most people are accustomed to. We'll definitely keep your feedback in mind as we review our cocktail offerings. We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

Finally Sammys re opened two weeks ago we had missed it for our out of town grand children. We ordered a cocktail and a beer but the cocktail did not arrive until we had finished the shared starter...a glass of water took as long. The food was good, especially the starter of hummus and two other dips. We both had... More

Had lunch with my son here today. Service was good sat outside and it was pleasant. Had the Mahi fish tacos which were spicy and good. My son had the sausage pizza and enjoyed it. Good all the way around.

Mediocre pizza and synthetic food. I was dissapointed by Sammy's. However, I did have sliders here once and they were ok. I think this place used to be good and it's just gotten complacent or tired.
