“Overpriced and average service”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Same old menu, overpriced for what was available, however the food was of good quality. By the time you add a "service charge", a 20% tip, and tax, that's half the check. The service was very ordinary; we arrived early at 11:45 and asked to be seated in the near empty restaurant , but were delayed for some time by one of the staff for no apparent reason, despite a policy of no reservations and empty tables everywhere. Not good enough.

“Great food, better view!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Pretty awesome place to grab a quick bite before continuing skiing for the day. Sam's on top of one of the mountain peaks of Snowmass and overlooks the mountains. Great BBQ and food for everyone. Definitely a great place to stop and grab something to eat and warm up! Warning though, it does get VERY crowded during lunchtime on weekends!!

“Perfect if you don't have to wait for a table”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Food is great, but if the place is busy, you might go elsewhere so that you can maximize your skiing.

“best on mountain dining”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

On the mountain Snowmass there is Gwynns and Sams Smokehouse that stand out amongst all the lodges, hard to pick the better venue but Sam's is new and fresh with a great menu, excellent food and outstanding service.
