I've eaten here twice and both times I got the blackened Mahi tacos (because they are that good:) And the most delicious fresh squeezed lemonade. The service was very friendly and fast. The atmosphere is very casual. I've never been here at night but I'm sure it's a great place for drinks and music. I like to eat here before... More

Granted, we were there on a Sat night, but when I called to find out if they had call ahead or reservations, the lady on the phone was inexcusably rude. I wasn't asking her to read the phone book out loud to me, I had two questions - do you do call ahead or reservations, and how long the wait... More

We only came here for a few beers and to watch the sunset so not a huge amount to report. The atmosphere is totally beachy and casual. It seemed like definitely a locals spot. The beers were cheap and the waterfront view of the sunset was ideal! The bartender was quick and friendly even though she seemed super busy. Would... More

Neat atmosphere, live music, clean. Food was average. Wife had nachos and it was a huge portion. Chili topping was so-so, guacamole appeared to be fresh. I had a patty melt type sandwich with pumpernickel bread and cheese grits. Burger was average and the cheese grits were too thick and didn't taste as though they had enough cheese. Service was...

Beautiful evening to have dinner outdoors. Ordered a bowl of the Seafood Bisque (the waitresses recommendation) and an appetizer of Coconut Shrimp. No complaints. Lovely meal. Would definitely return for another bowl of the bisque!

a very windy, cool but sunny day and 4 of us arrived for lunch at Sam's. Free parking is non-existent so you feed the meter at the Pay Station back up Clark St. $2 for all day. Pleasant staff, quickly seated. Due to the wind we asked to be seated inside - the wind being blocked by clear plastic curtains.... More

This was a very busy place, we stopped and bought a t shirt.. nice summer beach style shirt. great Souvenir. We then got wow ice cream cones that are in waffle cones that they make right before your eyes. Saw lots of food going out and it all looked great. For dining the view of the water is perfect.

The place is being upgraded so there is lots of fresh wood, newly installed wind screens and lots of beach fun atmosphere. The band arrived around 2:30ish and played some good music. It was friendly, service was great and the outside tiki bar had a real good vibe. While we didn't eat (Just enjoyed some Sam's Sunset Red beer for... More

good food, good drinks great view but slow service... do think your going to be in and out of Sams in a hurry, know ahead of time that the service is SLOW but this gives you more time to enjoy the view and have another drink....excellent food never had a bad meal there, waiters are friendly.
