This family business has closed after 40 years of business. The Canavos family are still serving a terrific breakfast and lunch at the Capitol Pancake house on Capitol landing road about 5 minutes from this location. The sons Dean and Chris operate this and now...More

Sammy and Nick's is an old, but very clean restaurant. Upon entering the front door we were greeted by Sammy and made to feel right at home. He is a very engaging and personable man--a consummate gentleman. The menu offered a wide selection of breakfast...More

Sammy's has a classic feel. The dining area will appeal to older patrons. My breakfast of steak and eggs had a soggy biscuit, watery grits, but a much larger than advertised steak. Coffee was average. Service good. The bathrooms are worse than many worn out...More

i guess you get what you pay for. Breakfast for $4. But the place is filthy. There are papers strewn everywhere. I guess the guy's office is in one of the booths. The menus are stained, my water glass had lipstick on the rim. Gross!...More

If you're happy with the impersonal, plastic, all-look-the-same pancake houses around, fine, Sammy's may not be for you. But if you'd like a good breakfast, being greeted at the door, like a place with some nostalgic photos and mementos on the walls, like being engaged...More

Loved this place! Sammy's grandson (aged about 84) greets you and seats you. Pancakes are their specialty and they were lovely. It's perfectly located near local attractions; Busch Gardens, Williamsburg, and Water Country.

I really wanted to like this place. We prefer locally owned over franchise whenever were out. To begin the outdated furniture doesn't bother me, I can deal with that as long as it's clean. The sign out front says 3.99 breakfast but when you get...More
