I work a block from Exchequer and I never eat at that place. The food is average at best, but they always seem to have a good crowd at lunch time.
I've eaten there a few times and have never walked away feeling like my food was any better than 'just ok'.
It was a nice moneymaker for Sammy, especially with the bylaw written in when the Industripex area was built, that no other restaurant could open in the there.
I'm pretty sure he had a family member (R.J.) that was involved in the development so that's probably the reason for that.
Yeah, I liked Sammy but I never liked the food at Samuels.
As for Sammy, I liked him alot too. He was a real cool guy and its sad to see how quickly the restaurant closed after his death, I'm pretty sure that some internal family issues contributed to that. But, I swear that I think the menu is still exactly the same. Its like they just changed the name on the sign
