Sam Miller's Ratings and Reviews
It was a cold and rainy day - perfect day for some of Sam Miller's crab soup and one of four ordered crab cakes. Delicious! We also ordered a dozen steamed oysters and a dozen fried. I preferred the steamed yet that's just a personal preference. Will come again :)
We ordered the oyster Rockefeller, mussels, 8oz fillet, and the crab cake everything was cooked to perfection. We were able to talk with the cook to pick his brain about what he enjoyed cooking. The hostess and waitress were amazing. Great beer and great wine.highly recommended
The Atmosphere was Amazing!!! My date and I really enjoyed the food... And the service was superb. We were given a window seat which suited us well because we quite enjoyed people watching on Cary...lol. We had a 3 course meal; The starter arrived shortly after our drinks, Our Entree was prepared well, our vegetables were crisp and our dessert was to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends.
Went with wife and didn't realize Valentine's Day was being celebrated on the 11th. Menu was set so could not order off regular menu but menu was good but very limited. If you are a seafood lover they have the best. Oysters, fish, lobster it's all prepared really great.
Fixed menu for NYE. We both had the petite filet with skewered shrimp...excellent except for the balsamic reduction. Didn't seem to fit and was a little overwhelming. I had crab soup which was great, as was her lobster bisque. Key lime pie and crem Brule were very good. Nice atmosphere, good beer menu. Live band was pretty amateurish. Trumpet player did NOT need a mic in that venue, but he used one anyway. This was why we left right after dinner. Overall good place. We'll be back.
My family and I celebrated Father's Day Brunch at SM and we had hoped to get back for another family occasion. When searching for New Year's dinner destinations they had a spot and I jumped on it. Glad I did and glad we did! We were not disappointed with our overall dining experience once again! They serve solid culinary staples in a way that you would ask for more if you weren't so full from the generous portions!
From seafood to steak and everything in between Sam Miller's gets it right! I have a VERY picky set of eaters on my hands and my children always are excited to return to Sam Miller's as am I! Just looking forward to another reason to celebrate over a fine dinner at Sam Miller's!
The Thanksgiving menu did not include options for vegetarians. The pasta offered was bland with no sauce. We took our dessert with us but the portion was basically a spoon full, very disappointing. However, the entrees for non-vegetarians was delicious. The brussel sprouts were amazing.
Went to Sam Millers for Thanksgiving with friends and was very please with the offerings, as I was not wanting a traditional meal. All three meals were fabulous, desserts (key lime pie) was out of this world. So many offer key lime and so few do it so well. I want to go back to try their brunch soon.
Went to Sam Miller's on Friday for date night. We were promptly seated, but then it took at least 10 minutes for our server to take our order and bring back the beverages. We were served our food with no silverware. We asked for a refill of bread which took 20 minutes and the it took equally as long to get our check and pay. The food was fine, however their prices are much higher than most restaurants we frequent with the same if not higher quality of food. Overall, I would not go back, there are too many other options in Richmond.
Love the crab cakes-consistent and always tasty; same for fries, sweet potatoes fries. For calorie conscious there is cuke and tomato salad. Fried oysters are yummy, crab soup is excellent. Never get to dessert--too full. Shrimp on salads could be grilled for better taste/texture. AC a bit on the cool side.
We had a group of 6 people. We ordered a variety of courses off of the menu, including appetizers, salads, soups and entrées. The only thing we didn't try was the dessert, because honestly, no one had room for more! I can't really speak to the noise of the restaurant, because I am fairly certain our laughter and conversation contributed to the "ambience". Overall, everyone in our group had an amazing time. The only exception was the person who is allergic to onions and didn't realize that there were onions in the soup. Luckily it was caught soon enough to avoid a problem.
Sam Miller's has great curbside appeal in an area filled with other restaurants. I was pleasantly satisfied when we walked down the cobble road and up to the restaurant. The interior was just as nice. We are from New York and can sometimes be critical when it comes to good restaurants. Sam Miller's did not disappoint!
We were a party of 6 in town for a tournament, I was looking for something that would fit a multitude of different tastes. The chef was amenable to making us a crab cake appetizer which wasn't on the menu. To be honest, it should be because it was delicious!! My husband ordered the surf and turf special, which he absolutely loved. He also had the lobster bisque which he said was one of the best he ever had. Others had the chicken sandwich, salads and a special order of "adult sized" chicken fingers for my 16 year old son. Our waitress, Domineece (sorry if I butchered the spelling), was down to earth, friendly and very helpful when ordering our craft brews and special items (crab cakes and chicken fingers).
I would highly recommend stopping in to Sam Miller's whether you are from the area or just visiting. I look forward to enjoying this restaurant again when we are in the area.
