This was a first visit to Papa Sams - we read about this restaurant in the Smart Shopper and thought we should try it.
Our meals were fantastic, service was great and the price was good - even though we fortgot to bring the $5 off coupon that we cut out of the paper.
Well, this restaurant had great reviews, so we decided to give it a try. Sam, the owner, is very friendly and made me feel at home as I was waiting to pick up our order.
The poutine was, well, not great, as they used shredded cheese, not curds, and very light and kinda tasteless gravy. It was not the worst poutine I've ever had, but far from the best... :(
I'm not sure what kind of pizza we got, but it was not what we ordered...close, but different.. We didn't see that until we got home... It was tasty, nonetheless....
We will probably give this restaurant another try, because of the great reviews it got from everyone else, but we were not entirely sold....
Coming from the west coast, we found all the local pizza, not to put to fine a point on it, sucked. Thank god someone finally referred us to Papa Sams! Good crust, quality ingredients (pepperoni could be better, but almost no one has the good, lean, cripsy stuff we got in BC). Best pizza in Kanata by a country mile.
Stopped by on a whim to pick up a pizza. Real roast ham used (not the typical sliced deli meat). Lots of cheese, delicious! Sat outside on the picnic tables and they came out and served us at the table! Server was friendly and funny. Had a great meal and a great time!
The beer was cold, the escargot and pizza was hot. Good amount of cheese on both, and very tasty. They provided the side of chilli flakes and parmasean cheese for the pizza. Sam, the owner, was on hand and the service was friendly and quick.
Papa Sam's has some of the best pizzas in town. They make the pizza fresh with lots of toppings and cheese.
I heard some were complaining about the service on various sites, but that was not an issue for me. The only issue I had is that it takes a long time for the pizza to arrive. But hey it's fantastic pizza so it's worth the wait.
