We were there on a Thursday night a little early and got right in. The menu was great and the chicken sandwich I had was very good. I would definitely go back!

Sams is combo platter: good live music, beer, full bar and great burgers and fries. They bring in an eclectic mix of mid-range touring acts and local and Austin bands. Large stage for a club and dark, retro atmosphere with raised seating/booths, plus an outside patio between the restaurant and performance space.

What a great afternoon hang out! Good beer and great burgers! Nice patio area, and indoor seating as well. There is a music venue adjacent and draws great bands, quality acts weekly. I would recommend this to any and all travelers looking for a weekend party place!

Ticket prices are reasonable, get a table if you can. Drinks are reasonable and if you get the munchies you can order food or go next door and get something.

We went for dinner before seeing guitar legend Eric Johnson at the adjoining music hall. Fabulous corner location (near to where the Pearl Brewery used to be) with loads of nearby parking and easy access in or out. Restaurant is eclectic, rustic, and filled with cool pictures and memorabilia. The burgers are Texas size and very tasty! Staff is friendly.... More

Our family had a great meal here, and everyone got something they really enjoyed. I tried a chicken sandwich with avocado and loved it. There's plenty of available parking close by. We'd highly recommend eating here!

The food was good, but nothing special. The food took a long time to arrive at the table (40+ min). Atmosphere was nice though and the restaurant is kept clean.

Great cheese burgers and awesome sides. My wife had the sweet potato fries and I had the onion rings which we're old fashion greatness.

This was me and my husband's first visit here. We wanted a good burger and that's what we got! The burgers were tasty and all the toppings fresh! The only negative was that it was like eating at a daycare!! There was a 3:1 kid to adult ratio. I'm certainly ok with that, we just didn't expect it here. We... More

I had a fun time dancing the Swing, which they do on Saturdays. They have good food right next door at a reasonable price.
