    Made reservations for dinner for my wife's 60th birthday and the Maitre D wished her Happy Birthday when we arrived and our server Charlie did the same. A great touch! The largest and best tasting lobster tail she has ever had, which is a staple for her birthday dinner. Received a small birthday cake with a lit candle after dinner. Outstanding experienece.

    Like Sam's for our special days-birthdays, anniversary and holidays. Food is great. Wife has chicken and I always have steak. Both are excellent. Steak is always cooked to perfection. Service is always good. " Charlie" was better than satisfactory on our last dinner. Dessert on the house for my wife's birthday was a nice touch.

    Very enjoyable dinner at Sam's Steakhouse. Kudos to our server, Brad, and the rest of the wait staff for handling numerous special requests from our party of six with accuracy and aplomb. And big thanks for the surprise birthday treats. Add the piano stylings of Dan Wiese and it all made for a perfect evening.

    Sam's tenderloin of beef medallions cooked medium, creamy spinach, and salad with mayfair dressing was outstanding. The filet with same salad, and twice baked potato was superb. The sides that the restaurant serves are huge. They come with the meat as does the salad. To quote an old movie line, "I'll be back"

    We had a good dinner at Sam's. 2 dinners were very good and 2 were not so good. 2 of the steaks were cooked perfectly. The special tenderloin medallion meals were not good at all. They could not get the temperature right on 1 ordered med rare, it came out raw and cold. The big disappointment was the sauce. I tried it and it tasted like canned brown gravy. It was horrible. We will give it another chance because the waiter was outstanding and worked to fix the problems quickly.

    My husband and I were dining out for his birthday. Our waiter, Chris, made it extra special by bringing us a chocolate cake for dessert. He and his assistant kept our waters full and checked on us often without being intrusive. It was a wonderful night out and I am looking forward to our next meal there.

    I have been to Sam's many times and am never disappointed with the service or the food. This was the first time for 2 of our group and they too were impressed with our dining experience. Our steaks were so tender and tasted so good. Generous sized potato, fresh salad & Mayfair dressing was excellent. Drinks from the bar were so great!

    Sam's is always consistently good. It features traditional steakhouse fare. I was disappointed in the creamed spinach (it was too cheesy for my taste), but otherwise the food was good. The filet Oscar was done perfectly.

    We have gone to Sam's Steakhouse for many years, and every visit is 'special'. Great for the steaklover in you. Their house special rice wine & vinaigrette salad dressing is one of my favorites. Resin baked potatoes are puffy and gigantic. Dry aged fillet is always a treat. Dress code is anywhere from dress casual to evening gown.

    Sam's steakhouse was GREAT. The filet was tender, and cooked to perfection. Good bread. Large sides. The salad was so/so; the mayfair dressing was delicious. I had garlic mashed potatoes, and partner had the green beans. they were served in "boats", perhaps "ships'. Live entertainment on a Thursday night was good, well balanced sound, not loud. I'll be back.

    Used to visit every 3 months-hadn't been in a year. Disappointed-probably not return. Diner1=prime rib. Consistency of sirloin not smooth texture expected, & somewhat tough-sinewy-grilled. Menu & waiter didn't say grilled; expected roast. Diner2=Delmonico rib eye. OK not great or bad but by chance waiter mentioned to diner1 that rib eye was grilled with same Cajun season used on Louisiana shrimp appetizer. Cajun Delmonico? Menu didn't mention Cajun-diner2 doesn't like-could have been very bad. Waiter mentioned steak & prime could be done with house steak sauce. Tried it. Both dishes drenched in sauce-completely overpowered flavor of meat. Creamed spinach was like spinach soup. Waiter rather inattentive-and it was very slow nite.

    I had a Restaurant.com coupon for $25 off a purchase of $37.50..This is the only reason we went to Sam's that night. I get there and the waitor advised me they are not taking the coupons from this business any longer. Then I found a coupon from my Entertainment Book for $20 off but was not valid on Saturday's..The waitor could have worked with me in some way, even a comp on a drink or desert would have been better customer service than just leaving us all hanging and not caring at all. It sure would have been nice to have known that Sam's was not taking coupons. Maybe post information on your website so others would know about your strict coupon rules.

    We arrived 10 minutes early and were promptly seated. The wait staff is very attentive and informative, yet not pushy. They succeed at providing a personal touch to the experience. We both had a filet with jumbo shrimp and Louisiana sauce. Although we were expecting the sauce to be spicy it wasn't but it was very flavorful. The filet was almost 3 inches thick and cooked perfectly. I also had grilled asparagus, it too was cooked perfectly, crisp and tender. Excellent experience overall.
