Easy place to stop for a casual lunch. Sandwiches are good and plenty of options for Italian dinners too. Good place for families and take out, and if you're in a hurry. Helps that prices are reasonable.

Nice place. The freshest bread. Lean meats. They build a sub using the right amount of ingredients that lets one taste everything, not just one or two things. Fast service.

Glad I did not get the pizza from what passed me by was awful looking. Took 15 minutes to make a basic italian sandwich, the whole thing had 4 slices of meat and no cheese. I would never go back there, and my wife and I swing into Freeport twice a year to shop. Got two stars because they had... More

Small sandwich shop, but don't judge the outside, go in and have the best meal around there. I had eggplant sandwiche and it was the best I have had in a long time. I definitely recommend.this place, really is excellent. GH

Pizza is not just pizza it is an experience and this one is one to forget; take a cardboard crust and put some canned tomato sauce [gravy if you're for real] with mozzarella cheese that doesn't melt regardless of the temperature of the oven and you have a Sam's pizza. Being from Jersey I get a little biased because we... More

Wanting a quick lunch and an Italian sandwich I thought this place might be okay. WRONG! Ordered a small ham Italian with no green peppers and no onions. When it came up it was a piece of bread with six pickles, 2 slices of tomatoes, and one slice of cheese and ham. I took it back asking for black olives... More

I love their Italian Sandwiches, very different from a Sub or a Hoagie, it's not so "bready" and no lettuce. I grew up in Maine and I ate a boatload of those when I was a kid. Their pizza crust seems to have gone down in quality, I don't know what's up with that. I'll try their pizza at one... More

We ordered pizza. Was cooked perfectly and very tasty as well. Restaurant was not busy as tourist season is not quite on yet.

I have to stop by at Sam's each time I'm in Maine. I love their italian sandwiches, the smaller loaf of bread that they use is just perfect. I'm tasting the rest of the sandwich without it being overburdened with bread. The ingredients are always fresh!

Was a busy Friday and had no particular plans. There was a short line at the counter and they were VERY busy. Staff was friendly, tables cleared quickly, food was very tasty and nice and hot when served.
