My family has visited sammys for years. We love to make our own pizza. I used to think green olives were bad on pizza but the veggie pizza is great. We also like the beef pizza and the Hawaiian. Service is good and the crust...More

I don't understand why people rave about this place. We had the Monday night buffet, and we were not impressed at all. There is nothing special about Sammy's. If you're looking for good pizza, go to V.I.P. It's less expensive, and tastes much better.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have had. I probably should have seen the warning signs: The completely uninspired menu, we were only one of two tables in there at 6:30 on a Saturday night; servers and pizza cooks on their phones;...More

Service is the name of the game for this place! I'm no pizza expert so I can't speak to how good it is, but the folks here will work with you to make sure you get what you came for. Thank you to them.

Sammy's has a daily Buffett, which includes a nice salad, some pasta sides and a mix of their great pizza. You also can order from their menu. Sammy's is famous for their thin crust pizza, which is great. My favorite is just plain sausage (with...More

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.
