“Sit out back and enjoy life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Stopped here 3 times while in town for a bachlor party. Sat out back each time and so nice to just sit have a beer. Food was very solid each time Pizza, French Dip and Old 49er. First stop we did not know it was happy hour and were blown away by the size of the beer for just a couple bucks. This is for sure a place to stop at and when you get there go in the front door and right out the back door.

“Average pizza but great salad”
3 of 5 stars 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”
4 of 5 stars 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”
4 of 5 stars 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”
4 of 5 stars 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
