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.

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

Come to Grand Rapids each year to see family. Always enjoy a trip to Sammy's. Great pizza and don't miss the 1919 Original Root Beer in a frosted mug. Traditional dine in pizza place. Good lunch time pizza buffet and the price is right there.

The first pizza we had when we moved from Eveleth to Grand Rapids was Sammy's Pizza. We fell in love with the taste immediately. The salad bar is tasty. The garlic cheese bread could be a meal in itself! Every pizza I've had is great! Their sub sandwiches are great! Their salads to go are bigger than you can eat!... More

While we aren't usually fans of thin crust pizza, this was pizza delicious! The beer selection could have been better, but service was good and overall it was a good meal.

We came in on Friday night and announced we needed to eat and leave in 45 minutes. The staff was super friendly and accommodating.. And even better the pizza was really good! Crisp, thin crust and it tasted very fresh. We asked for some steamed broccoli (off the menu) and they delivered a big bowl of steaming hot, fresh broccoli.... More
