Sam's is a very popular restaurant, and for a number of reasons. The food is consistent and the portions are large. The staff are friendly and accommodating. I have heard some locals say that Sam's is not polished enough for them. Whether it is the decor or something else I am not sure. Either way I would not want those... More

Excellent food, huge portions (more than I could eat), and great value. First went for breakfast and then went back later in the day for dinner. Both times staff was friendly, efficient, and very attentive. All in all, it was Sam-sational! Family friendly diner atmosphere.

We got takeout pizza because of travelers. Nice thicker crust with toppings buried in cheese. It was hot and ready. Took a star off cause they called back cause they were out of a topping.

My husband and I enjoyed the food but the service was not great at all. Our waitress Brittany was very rude and we could smell alcohol off of her. It did not make for a comfortable dinner. We will definitely not be going back to this restaurant on our next trip to Prince Edward Island.

Had the lasagna it was good, not as flavorful as something you make yourself. didn't enjoy the salad that came with it a bit to much parmesan cheese. Boyfriend had the chicken said only one piece was really good rest so so.

We are no strangers (nor shy) to 'hole in the wall' dining venues, and it seemed from the info we could find on it that Sam's Family Restaurant might be a "don't judge a book by its cover" kind of establishment which is why we chose it. Only I wish we hadn't. We caught the tail end of dinner, so... More

If the number of patrons at this family diner was an indication, the locals know a great place to eat. Although the place was a hub bub of activity on a Sunday morning, the staff were friendly and the food tasty. More importantly, the meal was cooked exactly as ordered. Kudos

Saturday special of scallops and fries is delicious and copious. Their chicken club is also. Try their donair. If you are not hungry you will take half home. Should you not get you not be satisfied with the order they will make it happen with no fuss. Staff is cheerful and helpful

We ordered just a half hour ago, and I wanted to express my thanks to the management team! There was a mistake with my mothers order and there was an allergy involved. When I came in to pick up the new order they handled it extremely well, and had given us two free beverages, their sincere apology, as well as... More
