We hadn't been back to this restaurant in years because the last time we were there, we found a large piece of cellophane in our special salad. But we thought we would try again. This time I found a small bright green piece of rubber (maybe a cheese rind) in the shaker bottle of cheese on the table. We didn't... More

Wonderful meals and pizza available. The Italian Beef was super and their pizza is out of site. Great place to either eat in or carry out. Worth the trip....great service, great food and good price.

Absolutely fabulous ! We had a great waitress. The food came out very quickly. The place is also very pretty. I only wish it was in my home town. They do catering for alot of parties, weddings and can accommodate 600 people ! This review is for the Riverside Blvd. Location.

I've heard great reviews of Sam's so I was surprised to have such a negative experience. I had dinner at Sam's with a group of colleagues (20+) one weekday evening. The dinner and menu were pre-planned. When we arrived, the room was set up nicely and that was as far as the preparation had apparently gone. Our food (buffet style)... More

I did it eat at this location as it took 10 minutes for them to recognize we were standing in the entrance. It is not they did not see us as they walked by everytime they took food out. There were four workers there and two tables of four. They need to get better organized. We went to the riverside... More

This was the first time I actually got to enjoy a party.. They did the cooking, the serving and the clean up. We had 42 people and every one enjoyed it. The pizza was great, pizza is my favorite food so I am kind of critical about it. The salad was great. They provided us with a variety of pizza,... More

We ate here with a group of nine other people. They put us in a room as we were expecting a bigger group. Even though the group was not as big as expected, the food was outstanding. The calzone I ordered was enough for 3 meals and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you... More

We had a surprise 80th birthday party for my mom. We opted for the Pizza, Pasta, and Salad buffet for 36 people. We had MORE than enough food. The family thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. We had a room off the main dining area which was very roomy and allowed the little runs space to move around and not... More

We are located in Northeast Rockford only 1 mile off of Interstate 90. We are close to the ISC/Sportscore II, Carlson Ice Arena, and Rock Valley College. We built with a large parking lot around the entire building and are able to accommodate large groups and banquets but also small family dinners and carryout/delivery service as well.
