I've been going to Sam's for years but this was not a typical night. We had to wait over a half an hour for our table even though we had reservations, we waited for water and our waiter never informed us of the specials. I was very disappointed with the service but the food was very good.

Although, the restaurant was busy on this Friday night, we were seated within a few minutes of our arrival. Our server, Ron, greeted us warmly shortly after we sat down: and described that evening’s specials to us.

A neighborhood watering hole, when you always meet at least one person you know.

(FYI, this is not a good place for groups. The manager insists on a planned menu with no flexibility for special diets. I attended a dinner fairly recently, ate nothing and still have to pay for the meal. We will never go back.)

Food was good but the service was absolutely terrible. We asked for more butter three times, it never arrived. I have to say the bussing was the main problem. The bus person came to take dishes and glasses once. The waiter had to do it because when he came to ask if we needed anything we loaded him up with dishes and glasses. The waiter didn’t tell us there were specials. When he came to take order, I had to ask if there were specials.

Great atmosphere, quiet table. Service was excellent, very attentive. Menu choices abundant with restaurant week menu also an excellent value. Flavors and cook on fish pork and meat dishes at table were spot on. Decent wine list. Overall quality of meal and presentation very good as flavor of protein was not overshadowed by over done sauces; an excellent experience overall. Will definitely go back.

Excellent service, food, and staff! My co worker was allergic to strawberries and the waiter took the desert back and brought her another one without strawberries.

The food is delicious, but I really wish there were a way to have the cauliflower on the appetizer menu. Not enough protein for a main dish, but I'd love to have some before I have fish or a hamburger.

Reliably good. A restaurant which never disappoints. There is something on the menu for everyone and often plenty left over to take home. One of my very favorite places in the area.

Wonderful meal, beautifully presented! Quiet ambiance, ideal for conversations with friends. Nicely decorated, attentive service from our waiter. Awesome dessert to celebrate my husband's birthday! We have been there many times before and have always enjoyed our meal. It's a great place to go with another couple because it is always quiet. Being able to talk with friends without shouting across the table is one of the reasons I enjoy going to this restaurant.

I have been eating at Sam's for many years. It is a great place to meet friends from both sides of the county right in the middle. The portions are very generous and both my wife and I took home leftovers. (My prime rib was humongous!)

Many thanks! Four friends met for a long overdue catch up brunch. Waitress readily agreed to our request to sit in a quiet location. Wait staff was friendly, professional and attentive.

Besides the varied items on the brunch menu, complimentary Bloody Mary, Mimosa or Bellini were factors in choosing Sam's.

As always, food was delicious - custard battered brioche stuffed with cinnamon apples and cream, Gedney salad with marinated steak and green goddess dressing, turkey Brie burger, and The Total Package omelet were dee-lcious.

Did we need the Salted Caramel Ring Ding? No, but it helped push down the tasty cappuccinos and coffee.

The ambiance of the restaurant was very nice but the food was lukewarm and soggy. The service was also rather poor. Perhaps it was an off night for the restaurant.

The special New Year's Eve menu was more limited than the usual menu but still provided lots of good choices. The red snapper and filet mignon dishes were delicious and despite a full house the setting still allowed for normal conversation without a lot of background noise.

We've been going to Sam's for years and there have been a couple of times that we were not thrilled with it. This time we sat away from the main dining area and the food was very good. The service was better then some of the other times. Overall, it was a very nice lunch and we will go there again.

We go to Sam’s every Christmas Eve. Unfortunately this time around the meal was less than adequate. The prime rib had no flavor, fish was dry and even the hamburger was only average. I’m not sure what happened as usually the food is excellent. The manager saw that we didn’t finish our food and comped our desserts voluntarily. I feel bad even writing this because we love this place and the service and ambiance are always excellent.

This was our first time at Sam's of Gedney Way and it most certainly will not be our last. The restaurant is cozy and inviting and the menu choices cover everyone's taste and food preferences. All of the food that my family and I ordered was delicious and beautifully prepared but the thing that stood out most for us was the hospitality. From the manager to the wait staff to the chef.....EVERYONE made us feel so welcomed. There are good restaurants everywhere but Sam's of Gedney Way is a good restaurant that knows how to treat their guests.....and that's a rare find.

Thank you all at Sam's of Gedney Way for a beautiful experience.

started out very good, was greeted and seated with a friendly host. It wine Wednesday which was plus. Wasn't overly hungry so just got wine and apps. Then the waitress disappeared. We waited for about 20 minutes before we had to flag the manager to get the bill, all the tables next to us had to do the same thing.

We had to wait an unacceptable amount of time for our meals - with only 2-3 tables there and we had to remind the waitress that we still had no food as she was walking by. Then things were forgotten on our order and we had to again wait. The half apologize was not what we had expected being that we have been frequenting the restaurant for almost 30 years.

There was a very loud and rude table of women that made it almost impossible for us to even speak ourselves- we are aware is not the fault of the restaurant.
