“feels like home but better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The service is personal without being intrusive. The food is reliable. They follow food trends but not fads.

“A Classic Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We were in town for the holidays and I wanted to take my husband and adult son to Sam's as I had fond memories of dining there when I lived in White Plains in the 70's. Great ambiance. My husband had the tapas platter and this was a great medley of favors for a reasonable price ($11). My son enjoyed his brisket sandwich. I thought my omelet special was a little pricey for $20 although it did include soup or a salad. I kinda wish I had chosen the Sam's burger as I remember it to be great. Sam's has gone out of it's way to create an elegant atmosphere. Next year I would suggest splurging for live poinsettia plants instead of artificial ones. Especially since the artwork is really nice. Just saying. Otherwise our waitress was lovely and we appreciated the new owner stopping by to greet us. Wine list offered a nice variety.

“One of The Best Restaurants in White Plains !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

Great food with a varied menu offering salads to gourmet hamburgers. The service is beyond description. My only negative comment has to be .....The waiter would not pay my White Plains $40.00 parking ticket. Only kidding !!!! Should be attentive to the "no parking" signs which are not totally clear !! A bacon cheeseburger with avocado and blue cheese is outrageous. You must try it.

“Good Local Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

This restaurant is a relaxing place to have a reasonably priced meal. I have had the fish and a glass of wine which were nicely prepared. My luncheon companion had the hamburger, also good. They let you relax here. Attentive service. This is a place that the locals frequent.

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Warm welcome, attentive and professional staff and always fresh and good. Interesting specials, but if you just want a hamburger, omelette, or salad it can't be beat. At lunch it is usually quiet and it is possible to linger without feeling rushed. Altogether a pleasant dining experience.
