Sam's place is just spectacular. The service is top in any class. In fact they should haul every 5 star restaurant manager in the country to Ohio and have them go through Sam's Place training.

I had heard about Sam's for several years but never made it over. Finally I had the opportunity. When I walked in I knew it was my kind of place. A small tavern type establishment. We were greeted promptly with a veggie tray and drink orders. I was pointed to the menu on the wall, a piece of cardboard with... More

This meal was by far one of the most delicious meals I've had in my life. [and since I travel frequently, that's saying a lot, as I eat out frequently]. I ordered the Filet [10 oz beef] which was FORK-Tender delicious and super super tasty. I'd drive 100 miles just to eat here! The potato was also the best baked... More

We've been going to SAM'S for decades. The food is always great and the atmosphere hasn't changed. Excellent service in a very local out of the way restaurant. The platters of home made fresh cut potato "chip" fries are sooo good. They start you off with a fresh vegetable platter as an appetizer, then you have the hot plate, then... More

This place will make you feel right at home if you are from the country. It is dimly lit, the menu is on cardboard on the wall, and you eat the fries off a platter! The food is good and the Mose Hopper is the BEST!! It's a fun dining experience.

A small town resturant and bar that treats you like a king! Great steaks, the fish is all you can eat on fridays with homeade potatoe chips are the best anywhere in our area.

Although the steaks are marinated a good, the menu is on the wall on a piece of cardboard. And depending if you are a friend or just a customer, depends on what you eat. Watch out for the raw veggies for they take uneaten things back and re-serve them. (I have employees that also work parttime there). Overpriced!

Everyone should make the trip to Sams Place at least once in their lifetime. Its a simple hometown eatery/bar in Blakeslee, Ohio, or otherwise known as (A half mile of smiles).

Chances are you won't find yourself in Blakeslee, Ohio. It's a tiny little town and you'd never expect to find a jewel like Sam's Place there. It is so worth the drive!!! I've eaten there at least once a summer since I was a kid and even though I live on the other side of the state, I find whatever... More
