Needed a quick hot sandwich and headed here based on past experience and these ratings. Staff is great friendly and helpful. So good was the food. Don't let the mall location fool you make the stop so worth it

We were looking for a quick lunch while stopping by the outlets .We stopped where there used to be a snack stand and found a much upgraded menu. The owner started discussing how he prepares his food and we gave the turkey cranberry wrap with lettuce tomato and cream cheese a try. Just fantastic! We saw a few other dishes... More

Excellent sandwiches and salads oddly enough in a mall location. Very reasonable prices, too. Have a mix of hot and cold sandwiches, wraps and salads. Plus yummy desserts. This is the place to strip for lunch if passing through Lake George area and want a fast, casual but high quality lunch

There are likely hundreds if not thousands of little food "places" in malls, and shopping venues across the country. Most should be thought of as emergency food locations and avoided if possible. Not Sammy D's. Think of is as a reason to go shopping..... Really good

How do you make it as a soup, salad, and sandwich place in an outlet mall? You engage everyone who walks by, you promise high quality and fresh ingredients, and you give good service with reasonable prices. And you encourage people to write reviews. This place talks the talk and then delivers.

I don't normally write reviews, but after visiting Sammy D's I felt I needed to. Initially walking in, I was like "how" are they #1. Then I spoke with the employees and quickly understood why. Very intuitive,knowledgeable and basically friendly. Food was great, however just a bit overpriced for what you get. Then again, it's healthy food so I didn't... More

I had their chicken salad for the first time when I was shopping in the Outlets before Christmas. It was excellent. ;-) Am looking forward to having it again really soon.
