Sat on the waterfront overlooking the boats, nice patio. Clam chowder soup in a bread bowl was amazing, macaroni and cheese with lobster very good. Service was slow but worth the wait.

I chose Sam's for a reunion brunch with college friends who were looking for a great spot with a view. The view was great, but that's about it. Sam's is located in a neighborhood under development, so the restaurant is effectively in the middle of...More

If you're interested in a waterfront view in one of the hipper Boston neighborhoods, with very good food and service, this is your spot. With a second-floor setting and a wraparound deck, you won't find a much better location in the seaport district. Our group...More

Had Saturday brunch here - I recommend sitting outside for a tremendous harbor view. We had a salmon dish as well as eggs and chorizo special which were both great! Do not forget the Bloody Mary!

The place is moving into the next building so I hope not much changes. Bloody Mary's are great and a little spicy, how I like it. My wife and I both very much enjoyed what we had but I am remiss at what it was!...More

Busy and modern atmosphere with a spectacular view. I had the seared flounder - excellent- and the chirizo side dish was wonderful. Husband had the striped bass- not as tasty as mine- but was cooked correctly and tender. (Salmon was reported to be farm raised-...More

Salmon dinner was deliciously prepared. We sat outside on the water and enjoyed watching the sail boats. Recommend reservation. Staff pleasant and helpful (charged my out-of-juice cell for me!)

This is one hard restaurant to get a booking in. It is up on the second floor of a building with a wrap around balcony. It's fun and funky and has big windows overlooking the waterfront. The lunch menu includes a small list of interesting...More

Sam"s is not about reinventing the wheel. It's more about finding four wheels that we wanted to drive around the Boston Waterfront. The local bounty of New England's farms and artisans; the simplicity of an American Diner; the endless and timeless appeal of the French Bistro menu; and the warmth and welcoming spirit of our home. Located above Louis Boston on Fan Pier, Sam's is a 45 seat restaurant that offers stunning views of the Boston skyline and waterfront. We are conveniently located next to the ICA and Boston Courthouse, and a short walk to the Boston Convention Center, World Trade Center, and Bank of America Pavilion. During the warmer months, seating is available on our 80 seat patio. Reservations are only offered for the inside dining room, but please feel free to call about our wait times for outdoor seating.
