Sam's was right across from where I was staying. Ate both lunch and supper during my visit. The food was very good. The Po' Boy was HUGE. Normal beachy theme, with a view of the gulf. The servers were all very polite, though the service was slow. I'd eat here again. And I bought a t shirt. :)

An open restaurant with a great view of The Gulf of Mexico. Food was excellent as well as the service. Not often that you find this combination.

Having lived in Florida for almost 50 years we are always on the lookout for a casual restaurant where we can enjoy the sunset and local seafood. Sam’s is located right on the water and the sunset did not disappoint; sadly, the food and service did. Our experience lasted an hour and a half from start to finish. Sometimes you... More

The service in this restaurant was excellent. Our own server was attentive and so were many others. We couldn't ask for better. Portions were generous. Our fish and chips came with a salad, fries, and coleslaw. There were four large pieces of fish. Unfortunately the fish lacked flavor and was chewy. The fries and slaw were good.

First off we want thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The day after Christmas was a rough day for us, after a couple of weeks of downtime the business definitely caught us of guard although we were staffed, we seemed to be a little rusty. Our number one priority is customer service and providing the... More

First time at Sam's but won't be my last. Sat out on the deck and had the great meal and a few good local beers. Our server knew his stuff and despite being busy took great care of us. The place is right on the water and has a real Florida feel to it. .

The parking at Sam's is awful. The closer spots are only a handful and the rest you have to pay to park. The views...exceptional as it is directly on the Gulf. There isn't a real beach in Hudson, so this is the best you will get. The food is, unfortunately, average. Service has always been decent.

The place is literally on the water so the breeze and sunshine are a perfect blend. Beer is reasonably priced but for some reason the soda is about $3 for a glass. Overall a good place to catch a breeze and have a cold beer.

My party of 4 went to get drinks and appetizers before we went to dinner later in the day. 3 appetizer and over 2 hours later we were finally able to leave... To start, 20 minutes in we were told our waiter had left for the night... which was not the case because we saw him 15 minutes after we... More

Sam's is a comfortable Tiki Bar type place. It is fun and busy on the weekends. It attracts a varied crowd and everyone is happy and friendly.
