We used to love going here because they used to have great customer service...until now. We tried to use a coupon here last weekend (it is a coupon that was offered by Sambetties on the site that we purchased to use here...sort of like a groupon). Anyway, the waitress informed us that they were losing too much money on those and were no longer accepting them. I think the best way to deal with that situation would have been to TAKE YOUR RESTAURANT OFF THE RESTAURANT.COM SITE and still honor the coupons that your customers PURCHASED IN GOOD FAITH. I checked today and Sambetties is still selling coupons. I called about this and they were very nice and exchanged my coupons. However, what Sambetti‘s is doing is ILLEGAL and just plain RUDE to customers. We will never go there again, which is a shame, because we used to go there quite often and brought many friends there. They lost some good customers.

been going to Sambetti‘s for years (12yrs). Great food and great waitresses. I concur with the other reviewers comment about very low turnover and they all know you by name. And keep in mind, I‘m not a regular. I go once a week during the winter months. Definitely a must go if you‘re in the area.

Great food. Great prime rib. Make sure to ask about the nightly specials. The all you can eat ribs are very good for the $. The food is also a great value. I don‘t drink, I just go and enjoy some of the best local food for the money.

Been going there for 17 years, seems to me we have only seen 3 waitresses leave,must treat employees pretty good, thats probably why the y are cheerful and fun to have as servers. Owner is also freindly and and comes by table to see how things are. Knows most of he‘s customers by name. That just goes to show that most of the customers have been going there for years and must enjoy it. Price is right, food is great, specials are always priced right and good.

Bad service, bad atmosphere, decent food. No Thanks. I have been to Sambetti‘s about 50 times and it used to be a nice place to hang out... not anymore. The Jukebox is turned way down/off most of the time and they are watching local TV. You ask to turn it up and they dont. Overpirced beers. Overpriced food. No thanks.
