The service, food, and atmosphere are all very nice. The prices are a bit high based on the food items but overall worth it

“Kitschy but cool”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had fun with our retro cool dinner, complete with tiki mugs and flaming entrees. The decor and menu is kitschy, but the service was fantastic and the food quite tasty. A fun night, Hawaii in Japan!!

“Good American style food”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have been here many times and always have a good meal. It's American style steak and seafood. Lots of variety on the menu. The flaming sword is the most entertaining item on the menu!
Curry soup that comes before the meal is delicious!

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary, Sams really helped make it a great night out. The surf and turf was outstanding, prices were reasonable (except for the high drink prices) and the atmosphere was great for a romantic night out.

“Delicious, great service, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Tucked away from the mainstream, this is the best of the Sam's chain in Okinawa according to the locals. Great seafood and steak with amazing appetizers. We had escargot that came in the shell with lots of garlic butter and a shrimp cocktail that was presented on dry ice in a very pretty glass container. The drink cocktails all come with either a signature glass to keep or a little souvenir swizzle stick or decoration. Large amounts of food for a meal. Came with soup, very fresh, crispy salad, either rice or bread, and roast potatoes, I had salmon wrapped around scallops on a delicious base of fettucine and sauce. My DH had red snapper with shrimps and my son had the steak which he couldn't stop complementing, it was so good. The meal was timed perfectly. No sooner than we had finished one course, they brought out the next. It was as if they were watching us the whole time. They were dressed like sailors but pushed in our chairs and lay our napkins across our laps. Kind of a nice touch even though the place seemed a bit more casual than that. I would recommend it, but beware the large amount of food and don't overeat!!
