Sam’s Italian Restaurant

4105 Grand Blanc Rd
Swartz Creek, 48473
Reviews:
I found this place on Yelp and stopped in due to all the positive reviews. They were not wrong about this place. While the outside might make you question the wisdom of going inside, one you do you will find a very comfortable restaurant. The service is friendly from the moment you step in. The pizza was wonderful-crust had s good flavor, the cheese was great-not waxy like most places and the sauce was perfect. I prefer old world type pizza and this tastes more like that than the American pizzas you find. The Samaritos are an unexpected delight, not to be missed. Do yourself a favor by stopping in and trying one of their many items, you will not regret it. I will continue to work my way through their menu as everything looks wonderful.
Do yourself a favor: Come here and have the best stromboli ever. No other place even comes close to competing with my love for a Sam's stromboli. They pack it with cheese and toppings, leaving the delicious sauce on the side for you to dip into. You are in control of how much sauce you get, catering to the amount you desire with each bite. The dough they use has a great texture to it as well. I love how I take how leftovers, heat it up in my oven and have a meal equal to the one I had at the restaurant. The crust does not get soggy! Pizza is a winner here too. Salads aren't as generous as some other places are, but it will do. I can't speak for other foods here. I'm sure they are okay, but I've never been tempted to try anything but the stromboli. I have never had great service here. I never go when it is busy, but somehow people that wait on my table seem to disappear for unreasonable amounts of time. This means drinks hardly get refilled, empty plates are not promptly removed, and the bill only gets recieved after we flag someone down. I am never in a rush when I go, and I enjoy the company I am with, so slow service doesn't disappoint me too much. It's pretty dim inside the restaurant too. I am always amazed at how it feels like I am walking out of a dark cave when I leave. Try this place if you enjoy a great stromboli!
People are right....it's a dark, old building but has some of the best food ever! If I could eat here everyday I would.

Best pizza in the area! I love the Hawaiian w merachino cherries along w usual ham and pineapple. Other food is good too.
One word, inconsistent, I live less than a minute from here and was a regular customer, one day you get the best pizza you've ever had, the next day you get something that looks like a child made it. Never eat in here, service is a half star at best. If you order on the right night though , you will have some of the best pizza around.
Great pizza has a spicy sauce. The steak sub is better than Big John's. The angus beef burger is also pretty good. Prices are a little on the higher side but worth the money

Good food, a little slow sometimes but they don't seem to get many customers so maybe that's why. I don't usually leave the engine running when I get to the window of the drive thru...

Just had amazing fish and chips. My guest had perfect over medium eggs and steak. Good food.
By far the WORST restaurant I have ever ate at! Do your self a favor and go somewhere else. While I was eating my greasy fish n chips I received a phone call, I went outside in order to not interrupt other patrons and while doing so the waitress took my plate when I wasn't finished. When being questioned about it she stated "it was almost gone anyways". Better off at a fast food joint because this place is terrible! Not worthy of the one star I had to give it!!!
Definitely a local restaurant atmosphere. Good service. My boyfriend had broiled cod and liked it. My clam strips were good - we both enjoyed our baked potatoes. My boyfriend cleaned up his hot fudge brownie sundae with nuts. We stopped here because we were pulling our 5th wheel trailer and needed ample parking - worked out great.

Reviews:
Best service and quality of food out of all the fast food places in this little area. Employees are always friendly and fast and food is always good. They don't get the volume of people that McDs across the street gets so sometimes the food takes a little longer but at least you know it is made fresh. One of the very few fast food places I have not had any issues with!
If ratings were by incompetence this Wendy's would be #1. I will no longer be going to this place and discouraging everyone I know from going as well. The last 3 times I have went there they have messed up the order. Even after having it correctly entered on the screen (which usually takes 2-3 tries) it is guaranteed to come out wrong.

Subway

Reviews:
Subway is excellent. I've noticed the quality of your food here is slightly affected by who is working, but it's always good no matter the details. Some seem to be a little tighter with the ingredients than others. Swartz Creek, and Flint are not the best places to eat out, and that makes Subway even more necessary here than other areas. Pretty much everything you can get from Subway is great. It's high quality, and it's a lot better for your body than most fast food. This Subway has a "drive-thru", so take advantage of that the next time you want something quick. I have tried nearly everything they make. I'm not a big fan of the pizza sub, but all the rest are extremely good! Chicken Bacon Ranch is one of my favorites. The staff here are friendly and efficient. For it's price and as far as food quality goes, Subway is definitely in the top 3 for restaurants overall, and uncontested as far as fast food is concerned.
Subway is good only if you love a lot of bread. Can they make the meat balls any smaller?

There are those times when you need to take care of friends and family during difficult life events. Do not use these caterers. Located directly across from Sharp funeral home they're piggy backing off their families. Our catered meal for our family and friends That cost us 428.00 Was an embarrassment to us. The food was comparable To school cafeteria or hospital quality. There was no pride in what they do or what they served to us in our time of need. Even the St Mary volunteers felt bad for us. I suggest the owners actually taste their own food or serve it to their own families and friends. Menu Chicken Red potatoes Corn Beans And the most disgusting stuffing you can imagine. Salad Bread Theirs were private complaints coming from several people. The deserts were fabulous.( I later learned that the desserts were provided by the Ladies from The parish)

Twist Ice Cream

7499 Linden Rd

Reviews:
Service was slow, employees are dressed in baggy sweatpants like they just rolled out of bed. Since they have opened this year they advertised they sold Guernsey Farm brand ice cream, and that's specifically what we came for. Therefore we asked which of the flavors were Guernsey Farm brand and the employee said ALL the hand dipped flavors were. She then proceeded to scoop my ice cream out of a Hudsonville brand tub. Once I got my cone with the ice cream I was lied to about regarding the brand, it was the ugliest scooped cone I have possibly ever received. It almost fell off and I had to put the unsightly wad of ice cream in a cup. Safe to say I was not impressed.

I sit here waiting 80 minutes for my pizza delivery...called the place...they have not even started cooking the pies. They are totally unapologetic when I called. They have already run my credit card. Amazingly poor service.
