We arrived about 6:15. There was no hostess, we finally entered the bar area and stopped a waitress for seating instructions. She said, "Oh, just sit anywhere!!" So we did!! We ordered drinks and they arrived in a timely fashion. But ..... we waited and waited for our waiter to return to take our order!! We finally stopped another waiter... More

The service was poor, lost the order. Cost was $$ for pancakes. Everything was cold, for the cost I will not eat there again. There are better places in town.

Took my parents out to eat for my mother's birthday. Expectations for a relatively expensive steak house were not met. Not a single word or greeting from the host staff who sat us when we entered and left. We all ordered steak, our meals took over 45 minutes with no updates from our server. I ordered a medium rare KC... More

The food was outstanding, the staff was not very friendly, and very slow. It was a Wednesday night and not busy, so we thought it would be super. There was not a hostess to seat us, we came close to walking out on a very slow middle of the week night.

This is a well run, upper range (quality and price) restaurant in Garden City, presided over by Samy, who has always been present when we have dined there. As Easterners we always order beef and we are amused that our Garden City friends always order seafood. I suppose this is an endorsement of the range of choice at Samy's.

See my review for Clarion Inn it will tell the story about how good Samys complimentary breakfast is. The only complaint we 3 had was that the music was way too loud and the guests are allowed to talk loudly on their cell phones in the dining part of the restaurant which can ruin a good meal.

We met friends at Samy's, who we've not seen in a long time. The food was very good, with a salad bar with some unusual selections (pickled okra). We ate in the dining room, which was not noisy so visiting was easy. The staff was attentive, but did not rush us at all. This was a weeknight. The meal was... More

We stopped at the Clarion next door for the night. They recommended Samy's for dinner. It proved to be a good choice. We had the prime rib sandwiches and salad bar and all four of us were thoroughly pleased. The salad bar had fresh and some original ingredients that were being replenished on an ongoing basis. The sandwich orders came... More

We were traveling through Garden City and decided to stop here based on the reviews and rating. We were disappointed in the service and food quality. The steaks are over priced, quality of food was not consistent with the price. I ordered a pasta dish with steak and it was nothing but macaroni and cheese with tough steak. We had... More

The atmosphere isn't distinctive and the service was a little vague early on a Wed. evening. But it's the food that counts. My husband ordered a 12 oz. steak and I ordered the steak brochettes from the appetizer menu. Both were wonderful. Best beef we've had in decades. We'll remember Samy's and Garden City fondly.
