                                                      Food was pretty good, but not incredible. We sat inside, but would sit outside next time. It was convenient since we stayed at the hotel.

                                                      The chicken special was beyond delicious! Also, our waiter, Kevin, was very attentive and added to our positive experience. This is our 2nd time dining at Sam’s and we will certainly be back when we’re in Calistoga.

                                                      Food was brought out way late and steak was cold within 7 minutes after serving. Second glass of wine requested took 15 minutes to arrive. By that point dinner was over. Server offered it free but the point is to have it with the meal not after. Maybe too popular for their capabilities.

                                                      Stayed at the resort and was more than pleasantly surprised by how good the food was at Sam's Social Club. Breakfast daily was a hit!

                                                      I’ve only ever eaten breakfast here and would highly recommend it now that they brought back egg in a hole. It’s the best thing on the menu!

                                                      This place is okay, but seemed overpriced because nothing was an outright fail but also nothing outstanding. Best part of meal was the multiple layers of flavor in the potato soup. Burger was medium but supposed to be medium rare. Salmon was nicely seared outside, tender inside. Churros tasted heavy, like they fried pancake batter with syrup. Wait staff was attentive and responsive to our requests, but food was just meh.

                                                      My husband, son and I went here for Mother’s Day brunch. Everything was absolutely delicious! I ordered the avocado toast, with a side of potatoes and bacon. Best avocado toast ever! Bacon was very thick and cooked to perfection and potatoes were very tasty! My son ordered the egg in the hole and I don’t think he came up for air, haha. My hubby ordered the two egg scramble, which came with toast, sausage and potatoes. We will be returning and might have to make this our Sunday brunch spot!

                                                      The staff was amazing. We were there for Mother’s Day and seated outside. It was cold so they brought blankets out for people to use. Then it started raining and they got everyone inside and seated with a very short weight. They handled it very well and were very accommodating to everyone having brunch.

                                                      We had the Egg in the Hole dish and Eggs Benedict. Both were excellent. The potatoes were extra crispy yet soft in the middle. The eggs were perfectly cooked also. We will definitely return to try other dishes.

                                                      The food was horrible. The salmon came rare. The pork belly was dry & tasted like leftovers. The bartender had no personality. Very disappointed.

                                                      Post-Covid, restaurants are taking advantage of customers with their price increases, smaller portions and tipping demands. The tipping suggestions at the bottom of this receipt started at 18% and the amount they suggested was 18% of the food AND tax. And restaurants are the ones who got large amounts of stimulus money.

                                                      Excellent brunch. I always enjoy the food here and never disappointed. The service was not as good and we had a noisy table next to us but overall we enjoyed our meal.

                                                      After many visits with excellent service this time we had very poor service. We were served our food but had no napkins, tableware or water. It took longer than necessary to get those things after we asked. The server seemed inexperienced. The food was well above expectations and the ambiance pleasant as always. The other unpleasant issue was sitting in the direct sun - no one could seem to adjust the umbrella.

                                                      Great food but overpriced and our waitress “checked out”. Not too happy.

                                                      We couldn’t get a dinner reservation but decided to stop by for lunch. Our sandwiches were delicious. The potato leek soup was superb! We’ve been coming to Sam’s since it first opened. It’s so nice to see consistency. We love the place.
