Sam's in Tiburon is still going strong

A friend and I went to Sam's today (Memorial Day) for lunch. I hadn't been in a long time and it was nice to see that the place hadn't changed at all and the food was still good. I had smoked salmon hash and it couldn't have been better. It's not Le Garage or Fremont Diner but for what it is, it's just fine.

    Thanks for reminding me of a local "treasure." Like Melanie, we haven't been there in years -- will be brunching there soon!

      Monday's weather was so glorious, did you snag a table outside? Reading your post made me pause to think about when I was last there . . . maybe 1999. Then, I felt the food was good enough but not the primary draw. Always a fun time. Thanks for the update.

        Definitely. That's why you go there on a pretty day.

        Still true. Just a word more about the food. I'd expect the same item (if they had it) at Fremont Diner would a a couple of dollars less and about 50% (or more) greater quantity. But I didn't need any more quantity and happily spent the extra $ for the location, and the quality was very good. Service was also good.
