    We had a great waiter it was our first time at the restaurant and Chris was great. He recommend chicken soup my husband really enjoyed the soup. He also recommend us Louisiana shrimp and said it willingness be really good if we would dip the bread in the sauce excellent. Finally the entrée I had the salmon with steak sauce delicious.

    My husband and I have been coming to Sam's Steakhouse for about 6 years now; since moving here to St Louis area and discovering it. We attend for special occasions and have never once had a bad experience!! The staff is absolutely amazing and the food, well, words cannot describe it! The food is fabulous!! Thank you, Sam's Steakhouse, for making yet another anniversary memorable.

    Food is excellent at Sam's Steak House. All of the service people are friendly. Unfortunately e cannot afford to dine there too often because of the high price of the food. But we eat there two or three times a year on special occasions.

    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.

    Dined on 9/4/2014
    The appetizer sampler was encouraged and I'm actually glad we ordered it. Each item was delicious: toasted ravioli, fried artichoke hearts, mini crab cakes, and shrimp Louisiana. We each ordered the 8 oz. Tenderloin fillet. The meat was melt in your mouth tender, BUT it was drenched in Andria's Steak Sauce. If I'm paying $35 for a steak I want to taste the steak, not the steak sauce. Our waiter was friendly, but he was also not polite. My companion stuttered a little and the waiter mimicked the sound he made. I said, "Yes, a little" when asked if I wanted freshly ground pepper on my salad. The waiter did an exaggerated short twist of the pepper mill. Other customers seemed to be his regulars. One gave him a hug.

    Dinner was to be a special occasion. We made reservations, we dressed up, we wanted a nice quiet dinner. We were seated in the bar with the loud drinkers and large families. Service was poor with one server to 30 diners. Very poor planning on management's part. Very disappointing experience. If I want to spend over $100 on dinner it will not be at Sam's again.

  • Over-priced, terrible food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I took my wife to Sam's Steakhouse for our anniversary dinner. We started the night with 2 drinks and an appetizer. I was less than pleased with the amount of food on a $13.00 appetizer that was just fried food. My wife and I were patiently awaiting our steak thinking it would be top notch at almost $40.00 a steak. My wife and I were extremely disappointed. Hoping it was the terrible mushrooms that were making the steak taste so bad, we decided to eat it without the mushrooms. After our initial bite, we both just laughed. We couldn't believe we just spent this much money on something that was so bad. After almost a $150.00 bill after tip, we left and decided we could go to Texas Roadhouse for $50.00 and enjoy much better steak.

    My husband and I went to Sam's Steak Hose for our anniversary dinner on 8/12/14 and were very pleased with the food. There was a table of annoying, loud patrons nearby, which sort of muffled the mood and general ambience, but overall it was a great meal. I would definitely go again.

    Although we had heard great things about Sam's...we had never been there before...but it was our 46'th anniversary so we thought we would try it...We were NOT disappointed... I guess you could describe Sam's as "old world charm"...kinda dark, great china, all the expected stuff... Menu is short...steak, steak and more steak...and my Pepper Filet was as good as any I've ever had...my wife had a tenderloin and she described it as "perfect"... Our waiter, Art, was fantastic...very attentive without being overly so... HIGHLY recommended...

    We picked Sam's steakhouse as a final dinner for my in laws visit from Germany.. And I must say it was the best dining experience I've ever had.. Although it was not well enough lit.. A little brighter would be better.. but that's a minor detail.. The food was absolutely to die for!! Salad, steak, sides!! All were prepared fresh and you could taste it!! The wait staff were kind and curtoius.. The wine selection was supereb!! Although a tad pricy. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that I would dine at Sam's Steakhouse again and again!!

    The shrimp Louisiana appetizer was great! Steaks were not as expected. Cooked as requested, however the quality of meat was not as we had hoped, especially the Delmonico bone-in ribeye. All other food was very good, lobster tail, bread, salads, dessert, etc. We sat in the bar and were able to watch the Cards game and listen to the great piano man, service was fine and as expected, everyone was very nice. Would have been perfect had the steaks been better quality. We still recommend Sam's and will stick with the shrimp and lobster...maybe some fish next time!

    My family and I have been coming to Sam's for special occasions for many years. My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary here because we can always count on Sam's to deliver outstanding food with great (not snobby) service in a nice, romantic atmosphere. We especially love their house salad dressing. Also, this time we had stuffed mushrooms which were reasonably priced for the four huge mushroom caps and were delicious. Their steaks are always succulent and perfectly prepared. We always feel at home and well taken care of at Sam's. If you are in the St. Louis area, you must patronize this restaurant.

    My husband and I went about a week ago and my son had our leftovers the following day. He thought it was so good that he asked if I would make a reservation for him and his girlfriend to go a few days later to celebrate their one year anniversary. I spoke directly with Pat (the owner) and he said since they were celebrating a special occassion he wanted to give them a free dessert and then he also put a congratulatory message on their electronic sign out in front of the restaurant. This place exceeds expectations beginning with the customer service - the food is second to none! This will be our local go to spot from now on.

    We went for our anniversary. When we got there , the hostess wished us "Happy Anniversary." The service is very good. We had an appetizer of artichoke hearts that were delicious. We had the prime rib. My husband's seemed to be a little chewy, mine was just fine. Could have been seasoned a little more. As our sides, we had baked potato and the vegetable of the day. Nothing out of the ordinary. I thought maybe we would get a dessert to share for our special night, but it didn't happen.
