Our party of six decided to come here after receiving gift cards from my father who had nothing but nice things to say about this restaurant. We arrived at 7:30 and entered the door where two hostesses stared at us and said nothing. Not even a hello. So I approached the podium and nicely said "we have a party of... More

Sam Kendall's has an upbeat atmosphere. My husband and I had dinner , it was good . Sam Kendall's is located in a small town so this is a good resturant for the area. We were there on a busy night but the waitstaff was still very efficient. We have been there before and would return.

Loved almost everything about this Camden restaurant. The place has an old-time feel with it's brick walls and antique ceilings. We were there at lunch time, but opted for the dinner 14 ounce aged rib steak, which was tender, juicy, and delicious. Unfortunately, about half of the side salad lettuce was frozen, but the dressing was excellent. All in all,... More

My hunny and I were visiting the Revolutionary War site and stopped here for lunch. Great, warm atmosphere. Menu was small, but we were there for just lunch. Lunch salads are small, (appears to be) just a half cup larger than a side salad. Creative and interesting menu. Everything sounded appetizing. We ate lite since we would be walking for... More

I'm not sure if it's the foodie in me but bypass the hype. Everything is very obviously made from a can!! No $23 meal should have anything you get from a can. Over salted and underwhelming. I knew as soon as they put the rubbery ciabatta bread down that this wasn't going to be the experience I wanted. Also the... More

Beware their definition of medium. It more like medium rare for my filet. Good salt coated bAked potato. Pear salad ok
