“Old School Thin Crust Pizza”
Review of Sam's Pizza Palace

Reviewed January 5, 2017

After a day of skiing we were looking for some carbs for the boys but did not want to do a chain restaurant - we looked for a pizza spot in Wausau and decided to try Sam's. When we walked in the door we knew it was going to be awesome! The place was warm and inviting and the smell of pizzas in the oven was wonderful!

We ordered cheesy garlic bread with dipping sauce, two pizzas and the pitcher of ROOTBEER - just do it! The root beer is served in frosty mugs and is fantastic!

The service was fast, the server was really great and the atmosphere is old fashioned and family friendly! There was a large party with kids from high chairs to teens and they all looked happy!

Sam's serves thin crust pizza, square cut. We asked for pie cut, and they thought we were a little strange, but they were happy to oblige. There is no deep dish, no cheese stuffed crust, no pineapple, so fussy pizza people may not like it, but if you do like crispy tasty thin crust, Sam's is worth a visit! Enjoy!

If you like thin crust pizza then this is the place for you!! Sam's has all your favorite toppings. I recommend the sausage pizza because the sausage is fresh ground not the pre-maid frozen junk.

This is a busy but quite little place. It has really good pizza and not to expensive. A nice place to take a date or business partner. It will take you back in time with the decor. I would say your missing out if you don't stop here.

We love stopping at Sam's Pizza for a special treat! We have never been disappointed! Always wonderful pizza - but even more important sometimes - great service! Emily our server was outstanding! Probably one of the best servers I have ever had at a restaurant! Thank you Emily!!! Garlic Bread with Cheese is a favorite of ours and of course pizza! Love the crust and the fact that every little square slice has a piece of sausage on it! Keep up the great work Sam's!

Stopped here on way thru Wausau to Stevens Point for a soccer tournament. I have been coming to Sam's Pizza for years and try not to miss the chance to come for pizza when in the area. As usual we were not disappointed. We ordered to medium pizzas for the four of us with the intention of having leftovers. They were both very good. Love the thin crust, sauce flavor and excellent fresh toppings.
