Everything about Sam's was wonderful except a few things with the waiters and the wait. We did have a birthday dinner and a breakfast the next morning. The food is very good, as is the setting. The waiter we had at both meals were not very attentive even when there were only a few tables occupied at an early breakfast. During dinner one guest wanted a lemon for their water and the waiter brought a slice with a bare hand and slipped it onto her water glass edge. Also the food was served on top of the menus that were left on our table. Though these were minor things, the lemon incident stayed with me in this time of covid.

We have dined at Sam’s several times. Once seated, we were provided with water immediately. However, our server did not come to our table for over 20 minutes. This was disappointing.

Food was good but nothing special. Presentation was not well considered, so although the salads were good and healthy and ‘as advertised,’ in the end it felt over priced. Service was excellent. Outdoor seating was very well considered: spacious, elegant, fresh flowers....

LOVE This place. For breakfast always get the avocado toast with an extra egg and the waffles. So delish!

We are a local, St. Helena family. I brought my Spaniel with us for lunch for outdoor seating in 95 degree heat and the host told me that I couldn’t have my dog and suggested to put it in the car. Yes, in 95 degree heat. Who suggests to put your pup in a car in 95 degree heat? Not cool. The server was awesome as well at the bus staff. Brought me water for the pup that I put in front of the business and the $140 lunch for 4 I spent worrying about her. A guy walked in to the bar shirtless but I couldn’t have my small pup sleep at my feet outdoor? Ok...

Fest time to dine at Sams Social Club. Great setting, loved the surrounding area. The hostess was quite rude when I didn’t want to sit in the corner beside several stored patio heaters. She was rude again later on when we asked her a question. We waited forever to order and then it took 45 minutes to get two sandwiches. The food was very good and as described. Could be very special.

A special weekend with a lifelong friend was taken over the top with an incredible dinner at Sams Social. The octopus, artichoke & arugula were incredible starters followed by the black bean seafood pasta which was absolutely incredible! The staff accommodated every request (they served us a pistachio ice cream for dessert which was not featured that night upon our asking) and respected out privacy in their beautiful outdoor seating area. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Indian Springs and got takeout on Saturday night and then had the reservation for brunch on Sunday morning. We’ve eaten here in the past and loved it, so were looking forward to a special couple of meals. Unfortunately, everything was underwhelming. The service was slow, the food was average. The toast with eggs didn’t come, the side of bacon was almost raw, the salad arrived without the mushrooms that were featured. Super disappointing. Hopefully just an off weekend!?

Our dishes were prepared expertly & creatively by the chef. We asked for a slight change on our salad selection & it was no problem at all. Very accommodating. Excellent COVID precautions too. Felt very safe.
