Four of us recently had lunch at Sam Miller's. First, we were grateful to find them still serving lunch at nearly 3pm. The waiter was pleasant. The food was disappointing, in particular the crab cakes. The two crab cakes if combined would not have made one of decent size and they used crabmeat from Thailand. Anyone who lives on or near the Chesapeake Bay knows the difference in flavor and consistancy. If local crab meat is out of season don't offer a really poor subsitute.

My husband and I went back for a visit after a couple of years away. We stopped in for an appetizer, but both the raw and Oysters Rockefeller were very small & not very good. Disappointing. We did not stay for dinner.

The title pretty well says it all. The food wasn't bad, it just didn't match the price. The wine list was unexciting as well.

I was in Richmond on business and remembered a delicious lunch here with memorable sweet potato fries a couple of years ago, so return I did. This day the service was a bit disappointing-- perhaps they were understaffed at 2:00-- but we had a hard time getting the server's attention when we needed something changed. That said, the food was delicious once again. I remember a delicious crabcake sandwich last time; this time I tried the fish and chips. The fried flounder tasted like real fish and was piping hot. My companion had a salad with shrimp, scallops and crabmeat and a delicious dill dressing. Prices were reasonable for lunch. I had hot coffee which was served in a smallish cup and only refilled once. Our server was friendly and accommodating when available. I would go back again, especially if in the mood for a crab cake or sweet potato fries.
