I was pretty disappointed with our food. I had a Sam’s side salad with blue cheese, and the dressing had such a strong mayonnaise taste that I couldn’t eat it. My son had ranch dressing and he ended up not wanting to eat it either. I also ordered a 6oz filet that tasted smoky or burnt on the outside. The twice baked potato was great, and if I ate the steak with a bite of the potato, I didn’t notice the burnt flavor. I haven’t been to Sam’s in years, so I don’t know if they were having an off night or if this is typical??

Very crowded on a Saturday night. Parking was difficult as the lot was very full. After arriving everything was great. Got our table on time as we made reservation. Extensive wine list. Server was knowledgeable of wines and the specials. Food was served at a very nice pace. Didn't feel rushed or waiting a long time for next course. Overall fantastic dining experience.

We eat at Sam's probably once a year at least for the last several (15) years. It's consistently good food...sometimes fantastic food. For whatever reason this past time it was super crowded without good parking and no valet option. We also got stuck at a table that was in possibly the worst spot in the restaurant where the wait staff and other patrons could barely get in and around the tables behind us. It felt like someone said "hey we could jam one more table for four right here in this kind of open area". Overall we kind of feel that the quality of service and ambiance was not up to par with what we expect from them after all these years. This was the second time we had a less than awesome experience there...we assumed the last time was a fluke but I expect it will be awhile before we go back again as their are other places closer to our house where we can get the same level of food and service.

We really enjoy dining at Sam’s it is consistently wonderful in food quality and service. Their salads are crisp and fresh and their steaks are outstanding especially with their sauce. Their chicken is always delicious never dry. We dine there for special occasions, as well as, everyday dining.

It was decorated beautifully for Christmas, so the Ambience was wonderful. The menu is just not as diverse as it once was nor was the food quite as good. Too much focus on the "Sam's sauce", and not enough other variety. To be fair, we didn't ask for any custom sauces or preparations so I don't know if they would have accommodated that.

Menu hasn't changed in a few years, which is good, but a little different variety would be nice. I loved the tilapia in a white wine sauce that you once served and it's no longer available

The value to what you pay is overpriced. It would be nice to have a steak, potato AND a vegetable and not have to chose between a potato or a vegetable.

Ambience was excellent. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Service was very polite. Although nothing is perfect, we did have a couple dirty plates at our setting, our appetizer was late and our alcoholic beverage came incomplete. At $270 for 5, it was hard to see the value.

We went for Christmas Eve. The service was slow, the floor is sloped and I about killed myself trying to leave by stumbling over a half step, and our dinners cost a small fortune (and they nickel and dime you to death... want mushrooms with your steak? $4; Onions? Another $4).

The food was delicious, though and ultimately that’s what you’re going there for. And, while the service was slow, the servers were very polite and everything was clean and orderly.

Very loud, but it was a holiday.

Would I go back? Possibly; I have friends and family who swear by this place and I’m honestly not seeing what the big deal was.

We ate at Sam's on a Saturday (Dec. 23rd). We had the perfect meal! We ate during a very packed time, we had 13 in our party. We were seated right away. None of the people in our party or I were regulars, but we had not trouble getting seated right away despite how busy they were. The appetizers came out right away. Meal took a while but it was reasonable. Everyone loved their food. Our server was Stephan, he was super friendly and did a great job. I am at a loss to explain the negative reviews - we didn't experience any problems. I also loved the decor - ideal setting for a Christmastime meal. We will be back again.

Cannot express my disappointment enough in our dining experience this past Friday night. My initial thoughts were, if you cannot handle the number of reservations/people then don't allow them to be made. Our party of 8 was seating right away but did not even order drinks for 20 minutes ($11 for a glass of house wine - ??). Placed our dinner order as soon as we could and it took 1 1/2 hours just to get our salads. Then we were nickel and dimed for everything, extra for a sweet potato, extra for mashed potatoes (really), wanted an order of spinach with dinner rather than a dinner salad - extra even though no salad with that meal, extra charge for anchovies for Caesar salad and so on. Steaks arrived, barely warm and all 6 filets were extremely dry no juice running out of steak and all cooked rare to medium rare. Needless to say we will not be back, there are too many good restaurants to go through that again. It was supposed to be a joyous occasion but your restaurant sapped it out of our party.
