The Pub has been cleaned and has a new face if you have not been here in awhile! The drinks can be a tad expensive but the food is always reasonable and delicious.

It was almost sunset when we were looking for a place to have dinner then this tiny place saved the day. Looking for a high quality pizza was difficult in Hot Springs until we found Sam's. I have to admit that the road to that place at night is little bit scary at the dark but it really worth it.

What an inviting venue! Excellent service, quaint atmosphere, delicious foods. We went into the restaurant as an option among many others and we were glad we did! Try this place for yourself and see!

I stopped in for lunch and a couple of beers. This is hands-down the best hamburger in Hot Springs. It is huge and perfectly seasoned. The fries are very good as well. This is a great local spot.

The pizza is excellent. The medium "SUPER SAM" is absolutely loaded with toppings and cheese. My wife and I share one and bring home enough for lunch the next day. We go by boat several times each summer and are never disappointed.

Had shopped all day in town and ended up having a late lunch. Cancelled our dinner reservations and decided to take pizza back to our rental to watch the Razorback game. Found this place in TripAdvisor and liked the reviews. Boy! We were not disappointed!! Great location, neat atmosphere, and some of the best pizza I've ever eaten!

I ate at Sam's many times when visiting Hot Springs while in college, but hadn't eaten here in the past 10 years or so. Pizza was really good - lots of cheese/toppings. The restaurant is accessible by boat which is nice.

Visited Sam's Pizza Pub on the Lake this week for the first time in several months---just as good as always! During the summer Sam's is always crowded, but as always, we were seated right away, and had friendly, quick service. The menu is a little different, with unusual burgers (some without buns, just for all of us watching our carbs!).... More
