“Average pizza but great salad”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We ordered a cheese pizza and salad. The salad was delicious - fresh and delicious. The pizza was not very tasty and I don't think it was cooked completely. Since we had it as take out there was no complaining to the chef!

“Go Where The Locals Go”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

No trip to "Sams" is complete with out a seat at the bar chatting it up with locals. This is the "Cheers" of Lake Tahoe.

Great food and an even better place to stop for a beer on the way back from Zephyr Cove Beach.

“Great local joint”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Usually stay just down the road, so nice having a bar & grill within walking distance. It's definitely a locals type place so don't expect fine dining. It's good bar food and the drinks & service are more than adequate. Nice for a snowy night or a sunny afternoon on the patio.

“my local dive”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

good beer/good food/close to home-pool table, but totally ok to take the kids in to eat too - menu is general bar food but all the burgers and sandwiches are great....pizza is good but a little pricey

“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.
