Sammy Cohen’s

Established March 2015


We are frequently asked, who is Sammy Cohen?


Sammy Cohen was a local businessman in Schaghticoke during the 1940’s until the early 1970’s. The parcel of land that our restaurant currently resides on was the Schaghticoke House, which was owned by Sammy Cohen. The Schaghticoke House was a liquor store, bar and boarding house, commonly referred to as Sammy Cohen’s Place or just Sammy’s, as many of his former patrons called it. We chose to name the restaurant Sammy Cohen’s as a tribute to the Cohen family and the history of the location.


Today’s version boasts a 50 foot bar, 76 seat dining room with 6 huge booths, a banquet room that can accommodate up to 70 guests and an outdoor dining patio. We offer 18 draft lines with some of your favorites. Several of the draft lines will rotate with seasonal offerings and new products. Our list of domestic, imported bottled, and canned beers is well over 30. We have a variety of specialty craft choices, with several from New York State breweries.


Sticking with that local theme, our ground beef for our burgers is raised on Kings Ransom Farm in Bacon Hill, near Schuylerville, and is processed in Eagle Bridge.
