Sammy's food was delicious and the service was amazing! It was not cheap but the food is worth the extra expense! The food was fresh and extremely tasty!

Outstanding old time steakhouse. Great bar downstairs as you wait to be called for your dinner, which you order upon entering the restaurant. Amazing appetizers. Salad, side dishes and desserts, all included in the dinner price.

When you walk up to Sammy's or drive past, it is not anything impressive. But the food here is amazing! The steaks were great, the appetizers terrific, and great desert choices. If you are looking for something different but delicious, this is a great spot!

This quirky little steakhouse turns the dining experience upside down. Diners walk into the restaurant and find themselves in the main dining room, which consists on long or round tables covered in paper and diners with huge steaks and plastic lobster bibs. The decor is right out of the 70s. Line up at the cash register, place your families order... More

The place was really hoppin'/electric with post Christmas, pre-New Year's Eve and "everyday" birthday celebrations. Downstairs the bar was mobbed, but the wonderful bartenders kept everyone happy waiting for dinner (and an empty table) to be served. And what an amazing dinner it was: started with spaghetti w/crispy garlic chips and oil ( make sure you add parmesean), fried shrimp... More

Unique starts as you drive up (or almost drive by) and park in the parking lot of an older, white aluminum sided two storied house. No signs. No lights. Unique is walking in, and going up to hostess to place your order of meat, and the degree of the doneness. Then you go to the basement to have a drink,... More

No issues....we got seats at the bar and enjoyed a cocktail. Take note that on Tuesday, bottles of wine are half price (the wine list is reasonable so that is a... More

This a wonderful unique steak/seafood joint that's been in the family for 100 years. We've been going for over 25 years every time we're in NYC. (only an hour or so drive) Great funky converted house, no reservations, order when you enter, have a beverage in the basement bar and they'll call when your salad is ready. Great, consistent food:... More

Just love, love, love Sammy's (this time for Chris' 50th birthday dinner)...after telling Maryann what all four (4) of us wanted for dinner, downstairs to the speakeasy for half price wine night (Tuesdays). Great Turnbull 2013 Cab (yes, 1/2 price) for the ribeye eater and Santa Margherita for the shrimp scampi lover. Upstairs for dinner, penne vodka, spaghetti with garlic... More

The restaurant has two floors - eating area on the ground floor and a bar in the basement. We had to order at the counter first, then went down to the bar and wait for the food to be cooked - even though the tables were wide open (not sue why we could not wait at the table). Once the... More
