Great neighborhood breakfast spot with excellent friendly service. Gets busy on weekends so avoid the after-church crowd. Some different options to try....with the Big Breakfast my go-to choice.

I ordered the Eggs Benedict and substituted out the home fries or potatoes for a fruit cup. With the bottomless coffee and a four dollar tip (a couple of young energetic and enthusiastic guys were serving) the whole thing came to 22 dollars (2017). I was really impressed with the hollandaise sauce, which was perfect, the three generous slices of... More

Food excellent and menu has something for everyone. Server was very efficient and pleasant. Always busy. I would make this a go-to place for these reasons, but for two issues.....the washrooms are so small as to be absurd, and the acoustics have to be dealt with - it is so noisy as to make conversation almost impossible. Otherwise, it is... More

Disappointed. Overpriced food..Staff seemed robotic...Not overly friendly. Was hoping for local charm...Wonky unlevel tables and boring interior.

My wife and I stopped by on a Sunday around noon and the diner was jumping. Most tables were full but it seemed that everyone was enjoying their meals. We were lucky enough to get a table and had service right away. It's definitely not a complicated menu. Simple choices for an all day breakfast kind of place. We both... More

I am from out of town and have family in Hamilton. We enjoy meeting at Sammy's for Brunch on occasion. We are big 'eggs benny' fans so that is customarily our choice and they always satisfy. Planning a gathering of the girls tomorrow.

Sammy's on Wilson, Ancaster, Ontario We love diners, so when my man's father suggested Sammy's, we both perked up and said sure, yes, let's go! The parking lot was busy (always a good sign) so we parked across the road. A little cool walk does the body good in winter is what I say....snicker snicker ;) We were escorted to... More

I had not been to this restaurant in years. A friend told me that they made a great Monte Cristo sandwich. When we got there, it was not on the menu, but the waiter said that ordering a Monte Cristo was no problem. Told me to try it with maple syrup (am I the only person in the world who... More
