My wife and I stopped by on a Sunday around noon and the diner was jumping. Most tables were full but it seemed that everyone was enjoying their meals. We were lucky enough to get a table and had service right away. It's definitely not a complicated menu. Simple choices for an all day breakfast kind of place. We both... More

I am from out of town and have family in Hamilton. We enjoy meeting at Sammy's for Brunch on occasion. We are big 'eggs benny' fans so that is customarily our choice and they always satisfy. Planning a gathering of the girls tomorrow.

The service just adds to the great breakfast or lunch. There are a lot of regulars there but it is large enough especially in the summer with outside sitting.

The title says it all. There are so many better restaurants in Ancaster. In fact, They are all better than Sammy-Jo's Place. We waited and waited in line only to have the hostess pick other people from the back of the line and seat them first. Once seated, the service was very slow and our breakfast specials were average at... More

Great breakfast. I go there almost every Saturday for breakfast. Local ownership which I like. Service is very good with friendly people. Owners take time to say hello

Spinach omlette with bacon, hashbrowns, toast and coffee was plentiful and tasty. It is a busy time there on a Sunday morning but the service was good and food and coffee were hot.
