The basic Sams Salad started the meal admirably, our steaks were done perfectly, and our table had 3 potato sides, baked, twice-baked, and garlic mash--all were delicious. Quiet atmosphere (Sunday evening), attentive service and wonderful food! We really should get there more often than just for special occasions. This was my mother in law's 90th birthday, and she was delighted, having also been there years ago when it was Munzert's. Highly recommended.

I have been dining at Sam's for many years and it seems, over the last few years, the quality has not been maintained. I don't know if ownership has changed or if its simply new management, but the dining experirnce is less.

Excellent! We went for a quiet meal to celebrate my birthday and the experience was delightful. Our waitress was a pleasure to meet and had a gentle approach to her craft. If you are looking for old world charm, Sam’s is it.

Very disappointed in the service it was my sisters birthday which they were aware of the hostess asked who’s birthday and I told her and they never acknowledge it. Which I told her when I left and told her they have terrible service. We saw are waiter 2 times and had to chase him down to pay the check. We probably could of walked out without paying( but that’s not who I am) asked the bus boy for bread which he never brought. The food was excellent but at room temperature.

Sam's has the best steaks and house sauce! Crisp and fresh salads and delicious sides. They offer several diverse menu items to satisfy everyone dining. Their house salad dressing is a fantastic and flavorful with
less calories. Their service is consistently excellent and attentive not intrusive.

We have been fans of Sam's for many years! We always go there for any special occasions. The service is always impeccable and the food is always prepared just as we request. The waiter(Can't remember his name, unfortunately), and the busboy both worked very well together. A very pleasant evening!

Bar entertainment is usually very good. The man and woman piano great. BUT this night a Single Guy piano player, singer. Was terrible, we couldn’t wait to get out of the place. Highly recommend changing or just using the The man & woman singers & piano . Other wise everything was great. Would not recommend Bar area if the single piano player is close to the keys.

The staff were excellent, the food was superb and very tasty. The food was as delightful as we remembered, from past experiences. We reserve this restaurant for special occassions, anniversaries, etc.
The only reason I downgraded the ambiance question was because of an issue that MAY be beyond your control -- the appearance of at least one of your guests. I realize that I'm old, archiac, and "not with the times"; however, I don't think gym clothes are appropriate for a fine dining establishment such as yours. Not every occassion requires "black tie" but I think you are better than the average bar. Perhaps patrons not suitably attired would best be served in the bar. Sweat pants and a nike shirt are perhaps not suitable for a fine dining establishment such as yours.
Overall, we had a very pleasant experience and would probably return.

The cowboy ribeye was nice, but could have been better had they not put their “House” saucd on it. A great steak doesn’t need sauce.

The server was pleasant and professional.

The ambience was pleasant to have a conversation while a bit outdated - but that added to its authenticity.

Enjoyed the time, but for the money - not my first choice.

First time dining at Sam’s, wish I’d dined here many times before! It was outstanding.

Service was a little slow and the decor is quite a bit outdated, but the food was to kill for.

Cocktails were well made, wine was excellent and both were very reasonably priced.

Steaks with Sam’s sauce were terrific. Entree accompanied by salad and huge potato serving (baked, mashed, twice baked, whatever) made for a relative great value.

Sam’s has moved near the top of our go-to places in St. Louis.

My husband has talked about this place since I met him in 2006 and we were finally able to eat there this past weekend. The steak was absolutely delicious! Definitely worth the money. And our waiter was awesome but I don’t remember his name unfortunately. This will possibly be our new anniversary spot!

Sam’s is my sons favorite place to eat steak. We celebrated his 28th birthday on Sunday the 5th. The food was impeccable and the service outstanding. Art was our waiter he was fabulous. My sons girlfriend is vegetarian so he had the kitchen make her up a delicious veggie pasta. That is what service is all about.Always on top of the table making sure we had all we needed. I love the atmosphere the ambiance of the place. You feel at home at Sam’s. We will be back. Denny Long also went to St Mary’s High School which is where my brother attended also.

Sam's Steakhouse is our place for special occasions, birthdays and anniversaries. We live about 35 minutes away, but it is ALWAYS worth the drive. The steaks are perfection, they are superbly tender, melt in your mouth delicious! And everything else, from the bread to the desserts, are absolutely wonderful as well. The service is also great. I don't think you'll find any better service anywhere. Sam's, keep doing what you're doing cause it sure is working!

Food was excellent. A Tuesday evening, several empty tables. However, we were seated in the main aisle rather than in a more private area where others were seated. We should have been seated in a more appropriate area for our 42nd Anniversary. I was disappointed and saddened about our table. Little respect was shown.

Great food. The steaks were delicious. Love the warm crispy on the outside bread and soft on the inside. Enjoyed the twice baked potato. The one suggestion I would make is tone down the volume of the music a bit and maybe variety of vocal and soft instrumental rather than vocals. The person from out of town I brought to Sam's was very impressed. This actually was my first time also and have lived in St. Louis all my life. If the occasion warrants a special dinner out, Sam's will again be the restaurant I would definitely suggest!!!

I don’t mind “old school” restaurants, but the food needs to be really good. This food is just okay, but the prices are high on the entrees. The servers were young and amateurish. I want excellent service in an “old school” restaurant.
