We arrived to the area, and our condo was not ready for us to check in. So, we walked on the beach, and decided to stop at Sam's for a hot dog, fries and cold beer to kill some time. Hot dog came with chili sauce, onions, and shredded cheese. Pretty tasty and the beers were cold and cheap! Weather... More

We love Sam's Corner in Garden City. We visited today and it's the off-season for the area. We went in for a quick lunch, and they had our food out to us in less than 5 minutes. I ordered the footlong corndog and had cheese fries as a side. I know, I know...this isn't the healthiest choice I made this... More

Best breakfast if you love bacon and hash browns and eggs sunny-side up with a biscuit! You could even get an ice cold beer if you like. The best is their foot-long corn dogs in the summertime. Since it was the beginning of February we were the only ones for breakfast enjoying the wonderful range of eighties music cranking out... More

After walking for a couple of miles visiting the area, I stopped in and got a foot long and a beer. Dog was good but needed some slaw. Good place to drop in for a bite and a cold one. Nothing fancy.

Sam's Corner is one of those legendary institutions. Eating at Sam's evokes memories of youth, suntan lotion and good times. People that grew up in the area now bring their children in for quick meals while enjoying the beach. Bathing suits, flip flops and the summer smell of suntan lotions are the norm throughout the day. The fast, simple grill... More

I stop at Sam's every time I go to the beach. They have a good variety of grill items and everything has been delicious. I live locally and tend to take my golf cart. The last time I went I had my dog with me, I had forgot to feed him before I left. I went in Dubai him something... More
