    We had a great lunch , excellent service from Darcie, raves on the shrimp tacos & ranchero salad. Wanted to sit in the atrium area but the noise level was too high. Music was a little loud. All in all a most enjoyable lunch.

    Service was poor. Water never got refilled. We were served our meal and then served the bill (never saw her in between) and the bill with gift cards was quite a fiasco.

    Great service and very friendly staff ! The food took a little bit longer ( which we didn’t even realize ) and the manager and waitress were both very sweet and took off items without us even asking! Rare to have such quality service these days. Food was great as always :)

    had reserved for indoors (wanted air conditioning due to 1 person having difficulties with heat. Was told they had a table for us on the patio. Very hot and very "road" noisy. Next time will need to be indoors so that at least we can talk. the servers were excellent!!

    The server we had was very friendly. Every time I have been to Sammy J's, I have enjoyed the food. I found the music a little loud which makes everyone having to talk louder so it was noisy.

    This is by far one of the worst service I received from the staff . I love Sammy j peppers in Langley and this was my first time tryin this location . To start off , we ordered some wine which was great and for apps we ordered black jack strips . They were extremely salty so I had told the bartender and she was also our server . As soon as I voiced my opinion she became insanely defensive and kind of made us feel it was our fault . Soon after that she totally ignored us for good 20 mins to take our next order as we had to place an order through another server. Totally felt racial discrimination. I expected better out of Sammy j peppers but very disappointed . We walked out without eating our dinner and no one seemed to care .

    Sammy J’s is one of our favourite places to eat but today we were really disappointed. Our server never gave us utensils or napkins & we were both eating messy/finger food. We waited over 20 minutes for our server to come check on us & I finally found her & asked for napkins, utensils & water & by the time we got them our food was cold & soggy. She never apologize or came to check on us again for the rest of the night. We didn’t bother ordering dessert or any more drinks (she never asked us if we wanted another drink either) so as soon as we paid we left because we were so disappointed by our experience. This is by no means a disrespect to the restaurant or the food, both are always great, but when we are ignored & treated like we don’t matter it makes for a bad evening.

    Mostly an enjoyable evening, went for a friends birthday. Food was good and our waitress was attentive. Ordered appy right away. Ordered dinner and drinks 15-20 min later. Appy took forever to appear and dinner was right behind it. This is a huge pet peeve for me. This is the main reason I order the appy as soon as I arrive. The rest of the service was good. Although our waitress asked us to settle up as she was leaving and said that someone else would look after us, we never saw anyone even though we stayed another 1/2 hour.

    We were disappointed that the Kung Pao was so goopy with so much sauce in the bottom of the bowl. Steak was well done should have been medium. Beef dip was served with soggy saturated bread. Wouldn’t recommend for dinner only allies.

    We enjoyed the white sangria with belinI slush and the raspberry lemonade cocktails. The Panko shrimp appetizer was tasty and generous portion. Prices were reasonable. All three of us had the steak and it was made to our preference. Portion sizes are sufficient . The service was friendly. Space is pretty open so not a lot of privacy if you prefer that. Overall, decent value for the price.
