Great Pizza. Really liked stopping by for a pizza and beer. Unfortunately, the lease expired and was not renewed, so Sam's is gone.

Best pizza! Never come to Tahoe without a visit to Sam's Place. Love the outdoor patio area! Great service, even for us visitors. Parking can be tricky on a busy Friday night, but other than that, no complaints!

I read a review that the burgers were good so I ordered a green chili burger with swiss cheese. I could not taste the green chilis nor the cheese. All I tasted was the char from the grill.

Love to get pizza at Sam's, whenever we come to Tahoe we always make sure we have a pizza. We either eat in or take out, and it's always been consistently good. We usually get the combo.

We had just finished a ride on the Tahoe Queen and needed lunch. I probably would not have stopped just driving by, but the comments were good. It was worth it. The burgers were prepared well. And who would think a small place like this would have a soft shelled crab sandwich. It was awesome.

Interesting spot, good food and drinks. A little hard to park, keep your eye out as you approach. Make sure you have the time to linger as it can get busy and is laid back service.
