Sam's was pretty crowded but we timed it just right and got a table right away. We quickly ordered and just before my trip to the salad bar the wait staff came out garnishing wholesale food in plastic tubs to refill the containers. I am aware that many items come pre made like that, but to be so bold and... More

I love the feel and atmosphere of this wonderful restaurant. Bussers usually don't get my attention throughout all the places I've dined. But this man was very polite and made this re opening restaurant the place to be.

Highlight of our dinner was the very extensive and creative salad bar. In addition to the usual offerings standard to most salad bars, they offered several creative and tasty salads that were a pleasant surprise. I had the rib eye steak which was cooked to perfection and tasty. Baked potato was small. Kids had chicken tenders, but be forewarned they... More

This restaurant is always our top choice when we are in the area. The staff is always friendly, welcoming and professional. The atmosphere is warm & rustic with tons of New England charm. There is a bustling bar and an amazing salad bar. Probably the best steak that I have ever had. The oysters were cold & top notch. Everyone... More

I went on an impromptu ski get away with my sons to Okemo Mountain. We went to dinner at Sam's without reservations, mid week, during a non holiday period. We also went fairly early, around 6 p.m. We were seated promptly, and the service and food were great. Both my son & I had two of the restaurant favorites, pot... More

We had the worst experience we have ever had at a restaurant at Sam's Steakhouse on New Year's Eve. We called and made a reservation almost a week in advance however we were not informed at the time of the price fixed menu which I personally felt was very deceptive. We received an email with the wrong last name, wrong... More

ILoveHospitality, Owner at Sam's Steakhouse, responded to this review

I apologize for your unpleasant experience on New Year’s Eve. When we realized the reservation discrepancies upon your arrival, including the misspelling of your name and the error in the person count, we tried hard to put together a table for your party of seven. I’m sorry we could not solve the discrepancy quickly enough to accommodate you. More

We were greeted very nicely. Salad bar was promising and was nice. From there they bombed it. I ordered the prime rib and crab cake for 32 bucks (small cut) The prime rib was the worst cut I have ever seen and at over 300 pounds I've seen plenty. Not only did I have to stab it to kill it... More
