We enjoyed the locals, wings, and kind service. It's a very casual dive bar that has neat historical decor hung around the room. Great pricing. The wings, pizza, and burgers are all great after a long day skiing. The Chipotle Aioli sauce with our french fries was yummy. It's fast and easy if you need a quick place for lunch,... More

Not really that dark, but definitely good pub food. I suggest the home-made kettle chips instead of fries. My husbands burger was a little small, but he enjoyed the taste. I had the 49er sandwich, and loved it. It was a bit much so that worked out well for my husband. He doesn't like 1000 island, but tried it anyway... More

Stopped here 3 times while in town for a bachlor party. Sat out back each time and so nice to just sit have a beer. Food was very solid each time Pizza, French Dip and Old 49er. First stop we did not know it was happy hour and were blown away by the size of the beer for just a... More

We ordered a cheese pizza and salad. The salad was delicious - fresh and delicious. The pizza was not very tasty and I don't think it was cooked completely. Since we had it as take out there was no complaining to the chef!

No trip to "Sams" is complete with out a seat at the bar chatting it up with locals. This is the "Cheers" of Lake Tahoe. Great food and an even better place to stop for a beer on the way back from Zephyr Cove Beach.

Usually stay just down the road, so nice having a bar & grill within walking distance. It's definitely a locals type place so don't expect fine dining. It's good bar food and the drinks & service are more than adequate. Nice for a snowy night or a sunny afternoon on the patio.

good beer/good food/close to home-pool table, but totally ok to take the kids in to eat too - menu is general bar food but all the burgers and sandwiches are great....pizza is good but a little pricey

We stopped by Sam's on the way to a snowmobile outing in Zephyr Cove. What a great place! The employees were super nice and inviting, the food was perfect bar/comfort food and the ambience was nice and cozy. Oh and we happened to be there during a killer drink special-our mixed drinks were only $2.50! You can't beat that. Our... More

Burgers, pizza, fish tacos, chili and cold beer. Slot machines that take coins. Locals at the bar and friendly servers. Sam's is the antithesis of the restaurants in Tahoe that cater to tourists. There's a nice patio for sunny weather. They even deliver in the area until 10 pm. It's not fine cuisine, it's comfort food at the local's favorite... More

Sherri the bartender/waitress is fast efficient and down to earth. The burgers and fries were so good. I like that they bring u your drink with a mini pitcher to your table for refills. We will eat there frequently when we move to Tahoe.
