I expect to pay more for food in East Hampton, even mediocre food, but I also expect service to be better than average, not worse. While my family waited too long for a table, my wife and I sat at the bar. It took the bartender over 5 minutes to take our drink order, but there were only maybe four... More

Sam's is known for its pizza, and rightfully so. Its pizzas are delicious! They have a wide range of toppings too, one of my favorites is prosciutto. Their pasta dishes are really good too. The dishes feel homey and comfortable. The seating is done in booths and they have a bar that does well too. It's great for couples or... More

We shared mussels, garlic bread, and a Caesar salad and really didn't like them. The server never checked in on food and the busser was so on point that our plates were gone before she came back. She also forgot our drinks. I told a friend about our first time there and she said that food is terrible, but the... More

We love coming here to have a quick dinner or to pick up pizza to go. Everything is good. Pizzas and veal milanese. It is usually busy, but service is quick

Restaurant has been in East Hampton forever! Terrific food, pizzas and all things Italy. Paneling and booths makes for cozy atmosphere. Great for a crowd, bar group or couples and of course all can be had for take out.

Great local find. Went here for dinner one evening. Place was packed with a queue, I think that says it all. Menu was comprehensive, yet simple. Food was great - we had Pizza, of course! Service extremely good and friendly. Would recommend!

The home of thin crust pizza ....sensational if you like thin crust. Good salads and decent specialties but the pizza is the star act. Right in the heart of the village for over 50 years. No slices. Big takeout business.

First time trying for some of us so we all got 4 different pizzas so we could all sample each one. The crust had a nice chew to it and the different toppings on each one were very good. The greek salad was also very good!

I waited tables at the Sea Spray Inn next to Main Beach in the 1960's. Sam's was where we went after we got off work more often than not. It was quiet back then, but the beer was cold and the pizza was delicious. I'm sad to say the Inn burned down in the 1970's under mysterious circumstances. But Sam's... More
