The kitchen was mass chaos. It took about 90 minutes to get our main course. When it did arrive, the baked potatoes were barely warm and the steaks were mediocre. They want to be a high end steakhouse, but there are several better quality places at the same price levels. The only redeeming quality is that the waiter and general manager were extremely apologetic and even reduced our bill significantly to apologize for the inconvenience.

Nice holiday decorations. Service was slow but maybe because they were very busy. Food was good however for the price point there are way better places to go. I will not go back for my steak there again.

Filet was wonderful, the ribeye was a little bit on the gristly side but tasty. Only bad part is we had a table at main and main. The holiday decor was beautifully done which gave a great festive ambiance. Waiter was great and will be back again.

Very disappointed in this visit to Sams. Had this been my first time here, I would not go back.

Meal was not hot, service was inattentive and drinks sat empty for 5-10 minutes. Not the WOW experience I normally have.

We got engaged earlier in the evening but had the reservation for a celebration of our first ‘dating’ anniversary. We had a fantastic experience.

Our server noticed I was asking questions about whether or not menu items had dairy or gluten in them. He automatically brought out my salad with no cheese without my asking. The attention to detail made our experience one we would love to repeat.

The food is always good and the service is great. It’s a little pricey but very dependable. I had special neeeds to accomodate my elderly Mom and they were able to do so without a hitch. I have eaten here several times and always around the holidays. If I were local I would eat here more often.

Hubby and I went on a Saturday evening to celebrate our anniversary. Our server was very attentive without being annoying. The food was excellent - we had shrimp Louisiana as an appetizer and both ordered the prime rib for our entrees.

The restaurant was decorated with endless garlands, wreaths, and Christmas trees. It felt very festive and made me excited for the holiday season!

The food was overpriced, but very good. I was looking for a nice quiet romantic place to take my wife for our anniversary dinner and I thought I had found the place in Sam's Steak House. Boy was I wrong, the table across the room was SO LOUD, that I could not even talk to my wife. Also, seems like our waiter was not knowledgeable at all. I ask if they had frozen cocktails, and his reply was "I'll have to go ask my manager". My wife even commented that our waiter didn't come back and check on us often enough. My wife ask for a doggie bag for her left over pasta, and it was put in plastic wrap, not a box.

It was nice that they could accommodate us at a booth in the bar area. The service and the food was excellent. It was decorated beautifully for Christmas. It was a little pricey but I knew that going in. It was a bit louder than I remember it. They had the music was a bit distracting. I wanted the creme brulee for desert but they were available. All in all it was just an average dining experience. I expected a bit more for the price.

The quality of food has seemed to go down in recent years, but it is still good. Not like some of the really awesome restaurants but interesting. I wanted to give the piano player a large tip to not sing. My wife wouldn't let me. The ambiance is wonderful even through that. Greg (owner and head waiter) is professional. We have been doing anniversaries there for many decades. It's a thing. Sit in the bar area. Always entertaining one way or another.
When ordering - skip the sauces. Yeah, I really do recommend the place.

Good meal, baked potatoe was a bit underdone but twice baked and sweet potatoes were good. Porterhouse and prime rib were both cooked exactly to order, flavorful and tender. Service was a little off but it was peak Saturday time. We had taken friends for their anniversary and I wish it had been acknowledged.

We have been to Sam's several times over the years. We always love the food and the service. My filet was cooked perfectly. I am grateful that they understand medium slightly well. So many places don't get that. For the first time my husband's steak came out too well done. (He orders his medium rare) There was no problem, our server had a new steak out for him just seconds later. I think they must have mixed his up with another customer since it came out so fast. Our meal was excellent. We also had lobster tails added to our dinners which were such a treat. Oh, the twice baked potatoes are to die for!

One thing that was actually sort of comical, was the young man who was busing tables that night. Either he was new, or just over eager to do a good job. He took my husband's wine glass as soon as it was empty not realizing that we had a bottle on the table. I teased my husband that I guess that means he is cut off. We got the attention of our server to get him another one. All good. Then at the end of our meal, when we were finishing our desert, the buser came by and took the plate, then waited for my husband to finish his bite before taking his fork. Again, a little comical.

Overall, we love Sam's and we look forward to coming back soon.
