Everything is dark, the walls, the linens, the rugs. The decor is clutter of out dated holiday decorations found in someone's garage. The servers must hate there job as they are not pleasant. From the minute you walk in you feel you are bothering everyone from the hostess to sit you to the waiters for your order. Never again !!!

I ordered a Gin & Tonic. All I tasted was tonic, no gin. I asked the bartender if he could "top off" with some more gin. He did add a little more and charged me $12 for the drink. He's lucky I didn't throw it in his face!

Used to go here 2-3 times a month for dinner. They have a new owner and 17 employees have left since June. The place is like a ghostown and our last meal was just plain terrible. I will miss going here.

We love Sam's Saloon on MacDade Boulevard. It''s a treasure, been around forever. Sam used to decorate it insite and out with year-round Christmas stuff. The food is Philadelphia Italian (not pizza)--wonderful pasta, meatballs, brocolli rabe, Italian wedding soup. Dressy if you like, but jeans are fine, too. Wonderful friendly bar area where everyone talks to you. Wed. through Sat.... More
