I was at Sammy's for the lunch buffet. There's a salad bar, dessert, chicken wings, and a variety of pizza. It was really good and the price was great.

The food was very good. The service was very good. The price was very reasonable. The portions were large. This was an excellent choice. I was on a business trip with my boss and he had the 3-piece fish. I had the "Two Sicilies," which was broasted chicken and pasta with red sauce. I opted for a salad to accompany... More

We had Sammy's pizza for a pool party at a local hotel and it was fantastic, as always! Don't skip the opportunity to eat here!

I grew up on Sammy's Pizza in Duluth and whenever we have the chance to have a Sammy's we do since they are not available where we live. The Grand Rapids Sammy's makes the same pies I remember from Duluth. We had it delivered to our hotel room and service was prompt on a Friday night.

This is a combo of pizza place and restaurant. It has nice sit-down dining and friendly servers. The pizza and pasta are excellent and there is a salad bar. A nice change of pace from a regular pizza joint. I highly recommend this local restaurant.

Not that good and to expensive staff were ok booths were dirty. I was told the food was good then found out that the people hadn't been in there for like 4 years. What happened. No wonder the radio station gives free food to this place I suppose any business helps when your pizza taste the way theirs did.

Very disappointed in the pizza the only benefit is they delivered to the hotel. I'm all for a thin crust pizza but this crust was as thin as a sheet of paper. We ordered a 5 cheese pizza to be honest it was lacking in flavor had no idea there was five different cheeses on it and no sauce. My... More

We really enjoyed the pepperoni and sliced tomato pizza which was served on a thin crust. We wanted something different than the traditional Pizza Hut pizza (which we also enjoy) and got that at Sammy's.

Recently went in for late lunch on a weekend day. We ordered the large veggie with extra sausage for the two of us. It came promptly and was very tasty. We had plenty to eat and took home about 1/3 for a late night snack that night. The place was pretty busy when we arrived about 1:00pm but pretty quiet... More
