New Sammy's has two dining areas - the original section and an expansion that is more open. We sat in the original section which was cozy, with subdued lighting and eclectic decor. The food was really excellent. It wasn't flashy but it was exceptionally nice,...More

We have dined at New Sammy's 5 times when traveling to the Ashland Shakespeare Festival. All dinners were excellent except the last time, when we found the main course to have too many components. (My husband called it a "hodgepodge ") On June 16, we...More

I am very sorry to say our experience was vastly different from the other reviews. The rooms are very dark and airless. We all had to use flashlights to see the menu as well as our food. The waitress was efficient but cold. The menu...More

Twenty or so years ago a friend recommended Sammy's and we have been coming ever since. It is one of the best restaurants in the area, perhaps THE best. Charlene's cooking is amazing and Vernon is always there to help select a wine. We have...More

Over the years, New Sammy's has earned a reputation for the largest selection of wines , the freshest and healthiest gourmet dinners and the most intimate restaurants in the Rogue Valley. Always a favorite of those who have dined and a delight for new diners.

The food here is great and has lots of interesting options on the menu. We very much enjoyed the food. What struck us, though, was the wine. It's a HUGE list. Fortunately, the owner, Vernon, delights in helping you select the right wine to go...More

Always exceptional cuisine and a collection of excellent wines from Vernon, the owner and wine expert extraordinaire. One of our favorite places to dine in southern Oregon.

New Sammy's is a small, hand-made, 29 year old restaurant with a vegetable, fruit, and flower garden. We serve lunch and dinner, use organic and "best-practices" ingredients, and have a wine list worth a detour.
