Varied menu with classic and novel appetizers, main courses and deserts. Nice selection of beer and wine. Good prices, generous portions and delicious food. Ample parking, spacious interior, friendly competent staff and very clean.

My family dined here for my mother's birthday. The service was good and all of our meals were delicious. They were delivered hot and in a timely manner. It was a bit pricey but was worth it.

Meal was great! Server, Adam, was excellent! He noticed the smallest details (ie. bringing extra ice for adding to drink) and was very accommodating to our needs. Very attentive to a group of 11 adults and one child along with other tables of diners.

Excellent atmosphere, food okay, excellent location. The real asset is the bartender Mark Stahl. He's great at what he does (mix cocktails) even better with personality. Mark has story's like the old fashion bartenders. He'll leave you alone if that's you cup of tea. If your in the mood for lunch and a cocktail join Mark any Thursday, Friday or... More

Meal was ok, service was ok, have been here on other occasions when service and food was much better,, I feel like it's dependent on who's working, unfortunately...

Meals are good quality but dinner prices exceeds the expectations of the meal. Sam's is a very good place for an upper scale lunch.

The Angus Steak Sub served with carmelized onions is delicious..we usually order the roll lightly toasted with lettuce and tomato on the side with au jus sauce. The sandwich is served with fries however, we typically order angel hair with marinara instead of the fries...yum yum!!! Sam's also serves a very good hand-crafted angus burger and a panko crusted fish... More

When Sam's first opened it was a great fine dining experience with delicious food. Unfortunately, as time went on things started going downhill. Last night was our third visit. The 2 visits prior were mediocre to say the least. Paying those prices you expect a certain experience. Last night's dinner was a disaster. First, I had to request utensils as... More

We've always had a great meal here. My husband and son love the linguine with white clam sauce. I think their NY strip steak is the best around. My other son loves the wings. Service is always great and the atmosphere is terrific. Great place for date night or a family meal, just be prepared for a hefty check at... More
