    Sam’s takes a traditional approach to the bloody mary, meaning it’s full of vodka and celery, but with whole peppers giving it that extra kick. Read more

    New chef has really turned this place around. Check the daily specials. On the regular menu, try the smoked trout salad with cara cara.

    The deck at Sam's is the perfect way to spend a sunny weekend afternoon. Watch out for the kamikaze seagulls though. They are bananas.
