I grew up on Sammy's Pizza in Duluth and whenever we have the chance to have a Sammy's we do since they are not available where we live. The Grand Rapids Sammy's makes the same pies I remember from Duluth. We had it delivered to our hotel room and service was prompt on a Friday night.

This is a combo of pizza place and restaurant. It has nice sit-down dining and friendly servers. The pizza and pasta are excellent and there is a salad bar. A nice change of pace from a regular pizza joint. I highly recommend this local restaurant.

Not that good and to expensive staff were ok booths were dirty. I was told the food was good then found out that the people hadn't been in there for like 4 years. What happened. No wonder the radio station gives free food to this place I suppose any business helps when your pizza taste the way theirs did.

Very disappointed in the pizza the only benefit is they delivered to the hotel. I'm all for a thin crust pizza but this crust was as thin as a sheet of paper. We ordered a 5 cheese pizza to be honest it was lacking in flavor had no idea there was five different cheeses on it and no sauce. My... More

We really enjoyed the pepperoni and sliced tomato pizza which was served on a thin crust. We wanted something different than the traditional Pizza Hut pizza (which we also enjoy) and got that at Sammy's.

Recently went in for late lunch on a weekend day. We ordered the large veggie with extra sausage for the two of us. It came promptly and was very tasty. We had plenty to eat and took home about 1/3 for a late night snack that night. The place was pretty busy when we arrived about 1:00pm but pretty quiet... More

Come to Grand Rapids each year to see family. Always enjoy a trip to Sammy's. Great pizza and don't miss the 1919 Original Root Beer in a frosted mug. Traditional dine in pizza place. Good lunch time pizza buffet and the price is right there.

The first pizza we had when we moved from Eveleth to Grand Rapids was Sammy's Pizza. We fell in love with the taste immediately. The salad bar is tasty. The garlic cheese bread could be a meal in itself! Every pizza I've had is great! Their sub sandwiches are great! Their salads to go are bigger than you can eat!... More
