Sam's looks like every other small town steakhouse with a salad bar and a big TV over the bar. However the food here, especially the steaks are a major cut above. They dry age some of their cuts and you can taste it. Even the prime rib, not from the dry aged section was excellent. One of our party had the Faroe Island Salmon and it was fabulous, flavorful and not overcooked, slightly pink in the center. The fries were not soggy or feh, common in these types of joints. They were really crisp and you wanted to eat every single one. The sald bar was fine. The good quality oil and vinegar were very much appreciated as were the seeds. The bread was quite good too.
Not cheap but quality meat costs. The bone-in ribeye was $39 but it easily fed two. Also that ribeye came with a side and the salad bar so the three of us got out of there for under a hundred with one beer. That is really terrific value for this level of quality. This restaurant really cares about quality.
