Sam's Ferndale Grill has become my favorite breakfast and lunch place in Ferndale. The wait staff is friendly and eager to please. The food is made to order with generous portions. It comes out hot and just the way that you ask for it. Good stuff.

Sam's is a step up from a Coney Island. Great breakfast and lunch specials and good prices. Service can be slow sometimes but always friendly.

We go almost every weekend. Coffee is good. Omelettes are big enough to split. Always have grits which are good with butter and honey. Pricing is reasonable. Service is excellent. Waitresses remember what you usually order and always bring us coffee first thing.

I have been here numerous times over many years. When I lived in the area I came at least twice a month. I consider this place to be a staple in the community. My service has been good, my food is good and it's reasonably priced. The staff for the most part are very friendly.

My group of 7 stopped here while passing through the area. We were looking for a quick sit-down place to eat (breakfast and lunch). The small parking lot was full and the inside was bustling. The exterior of the building was cute and even had a nice little area outside to eat. The waitress was quick to greet us and... More

A friend dragged me here and I was sorely disappointed. You can get better food at Taco Bell or Leo's Coney Island in Royal Oak instead. I am baffled this place is still in business.

I have eaten here many times and the food seems to keep getting better. I have had everything from burgers and sandwiches to full blown meals and it rocks! One of my Ferndale favorites!

We've been to Sam's for dinner on several occasions we've decided it was time to finally give them our review. Sam’s hasn't failed in excellent service or food. Prices are reasonable, serving size is beyond expectation and it’s more then most folks can eat. Good homey atmosphere. Great friendly as well as knowledgeable wait staff. I would highly recommend this... More
