Where fun dining meets the Gulf of Mexico! Watch a beautiful sunset while feasting on a perfectly prepared dinner at a price that no other restaurant can match and a quality that no other restaurant can come close to! After dinner the night is not over because the night life takes over at Sam's! Move to the sounds of the best and most professional bands in Florida! The cool night turns into a fever hot party and the energy never stops!

Good Food Great View

There is no inside dining at Sam's Beach Bar but hey, you are there to see the beach afterall. Get a seat on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico.

Had a wonderful view and nice breeze. Great live music and good drinks. Atmosphere was fun and festive but the food and service not so much. Our food came out it and it was bland and dry. The service was slow. A little pricey depending on what your order. You are really paying for the atmosphere. Great place if you... More

Ate lunch here. It is not fancy, but it is sorta fun. Lots of picnic tables and servers in shorts and tee shirts. I had grouper, and it was disappointing. (I've had grouper in other restaurants near here, and this is the old time I've been disappointed in it). My wife and I both ordered pasta salad for our side,... More

Enjoyed sitting on the deck and near the water. Our waiter was excellent, had a great personality and service. He was fun and made our visit special. Music that evening was way too loud, I don't mind live bands at places like this, but when the music is so loud you can't converse comfortably with others, it is not so... More

When we arrived we were told that it would be an hour wait (it was Friday and there was a very popular local band), but let me tell you it was well worth it. We waited in the Tiki Bar listening to the music and looking out over the water. When were seated, under the hour we were told, the... More

This is my second review of the facility although I visit frequently. I live just around the corner. Likes: They are consistently good with their service and quality of food with reasonable prices and large variety of choices on the menu. Dislikes: Most every time I go there is a line waiting to sit down but 30% of the tables... More

Do yourself a favor -- watch the fantastic sunset from the public pavilion -- then eat elsewhere. I can understand a long wait to get a table -- I just can't understand why a restaurant allows lots of tables to sit idle while patrons have to stand and wait because and I quote, 'we let our waitstaff determine when they...

Sam's is the best location on the beach. The sunsets get no better and the food is good too. The staff were friendly, drinks cold, and price average. Will go back anytime.
