Went here for a dinner meeting. Was given a few choices for dinner. To start the salad was very plain and lacked any flavor. I chose the crusted salmon and it was very bland and lacked any flavor. The best part was the sweet tea and mashed potatoes. My friends chose the steak and could barely eat it any of... More

Have eaten here numerous times - the latest was this past weekend. Food is always good, such a variety and a great atmosphere. The service can tend to be slow, but the wait staff is always friendly.

This is a bar and grill unlike any other. Leaps and bounds better than the Outbacks, Chillis, and Applebees. I had quail stuffed avocados and venison tenderloin grilled medium. It was excellent and I will be returning to try the other dishes out.

The food was really good. No problem with the service (I must admit I go during off hours). Had a chance to meet the owner (I actually saw him on tv first talking about guns) and got the tour of the restaurant, kitchen, memorabilia. Really fun guy, very knowledgeable about memorabilia and a great people person.He really has a desire... More

Great food, excellent beer selection... tiny beer mugs. Service was on their A game. I've been here twice now, and each time was a great experience.

I always enjoy eating at Coyote Sams. Locally owned, beautiful atmosphere and good food. I recommend them to my customers that are looking for something a little different. Always a good place to have a great meal.

We went on a Sunday for lunch with 8 total. Love the atmosphere in the back rooms with the view. We had everything from eggs Benedict to brisket to the coyote salad w/salmon added. The food was very good and our waitress was very helpful with our individual orders. If you are pressed for time you would do better at... More

Best BBQ I have had in a really long time. We really loved the food and the awesome atmosphere. It is a really neat restaurant you get the feel like your in a hunting lodge. We had the sliced beef and ribs. I had my doubts but the food was so tender and a wonderful flavor. I love BBQ and... More

Been here twice and price to quality ratio does not warrant a return visit. It is an independent business but the food is like a chain restaurant.

Whew!! It's so sad. This is the second time we've been in less than 6 months and left unhappy both times. My daughter had to go get someone to wait on us after we had been seated. :-(. Once she arrived, our server and Manager lady were both VERY PLEASANT and KIND. We ordered a couple of appetizers. The onion... More
