Great with big parties

Salad bar keeps kids entertained/fed prior to main course coming. Very Good food on it to boot. Fish with sauces were well done and the accommodations were ok albeit cozy in the family room off the side

Sam's has probably the best aged beef in Ludlow, and the best salad bar. The only dish I ever had there that wasn't top notch was the macaroni and cheese. The waitstaff are great. They just repainted and redecorated and it is a very welcoming look. It is a favorite place to eat!

As a local, we have reviewed this restaurant before and we are back with a followup-yes, again. This eatery offers a fabulous restaurant experience along with having a great intimate bar area with a pub menu. The salad bar is the absolute best, the bartenders in the lounge are attentive and have a flare for new cocktail creations and the... More

After a very good review I gave this restaurant last October 2014, a very recent trip here was quite the opposite. Perhaps they are tired due to the late stages of the ski season, but the service was terrible. Not one of the staff was welcoming and not one person was smiling. They were even arguing with one another over... More

Went here looking for something quick and warming. Don't let the name fool you, there's much more than steak! The salad bar has everything from cheese to bean sprouts and there's a loaf of homemade bread at the bar as well. Waitress was attentive and knew the menu very well. Easily answered questions. My boyfriend got the chicken pot pie,... More

Not too many restaurants have salad bars anymore but Sam's outdoes those that may. There is nothing better than this! Food is ok but that salad bar makes the place a worthwhile visit!

Sam' provides a top tier steak experience. The beef was beyond exceptional. When we arrived, at the recommendation of a friend, my first impression did not do Sam's justice. It has the look of a little family run operation...and it is, but what a family. Before ordering I asked if I could go to the kitchen to view the prime... More

We ate at Sams the night of our arrival to Vermont for a ski weekend. It hit the spot! Great service, wide selection of wines, great menu. If you like steak and seafood, you'll love this restaurant! New England clam chowder had whole peices of clams and they didn't skimp on the seafood. More upscale salad bar that included arugula,... More
