Sam's is a favorite among the locals. It has perfect ambiance, is cozy and classy without being ostentatious. The owners are incredibly personable and always interested in their patrons...not just in terms of their experience with their meal but as neighbors...friends. The food is very, very good and they change the menu just often enough to keep things interesting. I... More

Great service, delicious food and very quiet! The menu is varied and the food is presented beautifully. Nice décor and there are a few tables that are located in their own private nook. The restaurant has always been crowded but the acoustics are great and it is quiet. It's very easy to have a conversation without yelling at the person... More

I have been coming to Sam's for over 40 years. While ambiance has stayed the same, the paint job is refreshed and the staff has turned over. Always a good selection for lunch or dinner. The bar is as good as the restaurant. Private party room. Catering available from Caperberry.

Four of us chose Sam's, where I had been previously for group luncheons, because it got good ratings for brunch and because the location was convenient to The Bristol where one of our guests lives. It was a nice experience. We all had something different, and everyone liked his or her choice. The eggs benedict was cooked to perfection, the... More

Sunday evening. Late. Jeans. Directed to bar. Met Michael. He was awesome as bartender. Great mixed drinks, great gab, good direction to great food. Burgers to die for, but scallops to rival any great seafood place. Topped off meal with iced sambuca. Great Sunday evening at Sam's.

My college boy was meeting me in White Plains so we decided to Sam's and we haven't been there in a while. Well it did not disappoint! It was not a big dinner. I started with the Tuscan kale salad. I was slightly worried about just eating kale but it was delicious. It had grape tomato, shaved Parmesan, Caesar dressing,... More

Whenever my wife and I feel like having a perfectly prepared burger, a great salad with portobello mushrooms or fillet of sole, we head over to Sam's where the owner greets us like old friends and we know we are going to feel great when we leave! We have never had a meal that we didn't love and some that... More

Fantastic and reliable. I eat there with my family; I have all of my business lunches there, and it never disappoints. Best gazpacho in the land. Not to mention terrific and warm staff.

My sister, brother in law and I were looking for a quick lunch in White Plains. We choose Sam's because it had a high rating of 4.3. We loved it. The service was quick and gracious. The food was beyond expectation! Never have I seen an eight inch high Turkey Burger! And he ate the whole thing! The chicken bites... More
