We were attending a conference at the hotel so we made dinner reservations at Sam & Harry’s. The food was just mediocre and very pricey. Our waitress Janice was not very friendly and we felt very rushed. Definitely would not go back.More

The restaurant is located inside the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel. It is spacious and offers good steaks. The price is fair. A good option in Schaumburg.
