A restaurant's busy parking lot usually means good food, & that's certainly true here!
Waiting in line to be seated confirms it.
The food that we enjoyed would be a credit to any town of size but to have it in little Johnstown is a wonderful discovery! From great attentive service by our server, ( and none of them work at less than full-out), to great bread, salads w/ homemade dressing, and possibly one of the best steaks that I have enjoyed, WOW!
I ordered the NY Strip, 14 oz. of what a steak is supposed to taste like; charbroiled medium exactly as ordered, plated with some flair by the artfully garlic whipped potatoes and mixed grilled veggies. A week later I'm wishing I could have that steak again in my town!
My wife decided on Shrimp Scampi "Paris Bistro-style", sauteed jumbo (and they were) shrimps w/ lemon, garlic, tomato, white whine & fresh basil over angel hair. She declared it perfect, too!
The extensive menu has 28 dinner entrees alone to choose from.
A very popular place and for GOOD reason!

We went with another couple for their anniversary and our dinner was very disappointing.
The drinks and onion ring tower were great, but our prime ribs were bad. First one brought out to our girl friend was small and full of fat, we sent it back and got another one which she ate part of and took the rest home to her dog. Our other prime ribs were very touch and lacking in flavor.
We have been to Sams's before and were very disappointed this time, we may not go back.
The wait staff was good and tried to make good on a bad night, not their fault, the problem seems to be in the kitchen staff in that they send out poor quality food.

HAVE TO start with the "Tower of Inferno-" onion rings, done like good Buffalo Wings!! Very generous sandwiches, good draft beer choices, excellent fish & chips. Friend said really good "French Dip" too! LOVE sweet potato fries and these were the BEST! Heading to the lake? Stop here first and forget packing lunch--or dinner!!
