“So much more than pizza!”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Tucked away in a strip storefront, this place has an amazing menu and great food for reasonable prices.

The house wines are actually pretty good and don't overlook the Greek Corner. The Moussaka, made by Sam's mother is some of the best I've had and that includes what we ate in Athens. Generous layers of ground beef, eggplant, potatoes and bechemel sauce baked into comfort food of the highest quality.

The setting will be familiar, but the food is what will bring you back again and again. No wonder it was packed on the restaurant side with a carryout line extending to the door!

“generous portions, reasonable prices, good carryout”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

In an area that seems to be dominated by boutique eateries, Sam's brings that familiar pizza-and-subs formula we all know from growing up. Pizza, subs, formica tabletops, a brisk carryout business, *very* friendly people. There are plenty of people who obviously know each other, and there's definitely a Baltimore vibe going on, so the sub rolls are really soft, and the cheesesteaks are piled high. Nothing bad to say about this place at all, nothing special either (e.g., this is NOT like Captain Harveys for legendary cheesesteakage). It's a regular sit-down pizza place with easy seating (they don't squish you into tiny booths or make you rub elbows with your neighbors), and sometimes this is just what I want.

Basically, if you're tired of going out for specialties and paying vacation prices, and you just want a sub or a pizza like you're used to back home, Sam's hits the mark.

Hope this helps!
Oh and P.S. ... The big sign is easy to see from the road when you come into St. Michaels (on the left after the Grauls) but you might wonder if you're at the right place--it looks more like a small office park instead of a spot for a restaurant. Don't worry--you're in the right place. And the parking is easy.

“Consistently good food and great service!”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

Sam’s is one of those types of places that every small town has or at least wishes they had. The food is home cooking style with lots of favorites and lots of specials that will fill you up and not empty your wallet. It is also a favorite of the locals who tend to eat there regularly which, given the choices we have in the area, is an accomplishment for any restaurant here. You don’t have to get dressed up to go nor do you have to make a special trip to the ATM to pay for you dinner. The staff is great, the manager is always there and always friendly and the food is consistently good! For the older crowd there is always a take home box ready and you have to be a big eater to finish everything you get for your money at Sam’s. What more would you want?

“Sams Pizza and restaurant Excellent food!”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Every time we travel into St. Michaels we go to Sam's. This is where all the local residents eat! The staff have become friends over the last few years we have discovered this restaurant. Their food is excellent and the prices extremely reasonable. It is located on the left just before you get into St. Michaels. LOOK FOR THE LARGE SIGN. It is located in a rather industrial location, however, do not let that fool you. Their pizza is excellent, subs delicious and after all this time we have never had anything but an excellent meal. We love the "local" feel of the restaurant and will continue to frequent every time we are in town.
