“Great comfort food and cozy to boot”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We stopped by Sam's on the way to a snowmobile outing in Zephyr Cove. What a great place! The employees were super nice and inviting, the food was perfect bar/comfort food and the ambience was nice and cozy. Oh and we happened to be there during a killer drink special-our mixed drinks were only $2.50! You can't beat that. Our only regret was that we didn't get to sit at the tables in front of the roaring fire. This is a great place that has great service and real good, no frills food.

“Charming local dive that has good food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Burgers, pizza, fish tacos, chili and cold beer. Slot machines that take coins. Locals at the bar and friendly servers.

Sam's is the antithesis of the restaurants in Tahoe that cater to tourists. There's a nice patio for sunny weather. They even deliver in the area until 10 pm.

It's not fine cuisine, it's comfort food at the local's favorite dive.

“SAMS HITS THE SPOT”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Sherri the bartender/waitress is fast efficient and down to earth. The burgers and fries were so good. I like that they bring u your drink with a mini pitcher to your table for refills. We will eat there frequently when we move to Tahoe.

“Superb Hospitality!!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Excellent Service, Excellent Bartender! Was wonderful at putting up with us.
I truly cannot recommend the food here because it's low grade bar food, but after a few drinks, who cares, right? So, go somewhere else for dinner and come here for a great Tahoe Dive Bar.
There is one beer that they brew on tap if you like to avoid the mainstream. Sam's Beer in my opinion is comparable to Sierra Nevada Ale and a good drinking beer.
Anyway, all I can say is that the bartender was great, never left us hanging, had great personality and took great care of us.
We will be back!
