We ate here for breakfast each morning during a four day stay in SF (we were staying opposite at the Hotel Whitcomb).
On the first day the queue was out of the door, so we had to wait about 15 mins for a table. But it was well worth the wait. Staff were friendly and remembered us each day we came back.
Food was fab - and filling. The Whiskey Sausage House Benedict is well worth a try!

We went to Sam's for our first breakfast in SF and were really glad we did the food was amazing ! Staff were very friendly and it was great to sit at the bar and watch our food being cooked in front of us. After a long day walking the city we were so tired and as most places around our hotel were closed we decided to frequent Sam's again for dinner.Glad we did, once again the staff were attentive and friendly. I had the Giant burger which was delicious and my partner had what she described as the best vegetarian burger she has ate in a long time . I thoroughly recommend this great diner!

Ate here before Hamilton. Quite good food, well cooked, good service (if just a bit slow). Worth going to if you are in area. Menu (especially wines) a bit limited.

From a tourist perspective people watching is the best part of this place: a real eclectic sub-set of San Francisco's populace. Food was standard diner fare: average quality but expensive.
