Sam's at Louis

  • 7

A friend wants to meet there for dinner tonight. Their site says they have parking for 16 cars which seems pretty limited, considering the recent storm and reports of poor snow removal.
With the parking ban still in effect, how difficult would it be to get to Sam's by car?
Comments on the food are very welcome, too.

  1. there are parking lots all over the place down there.

    1. Had a couple great sunday brunches there last year

      1. I think that the parking ban will be lifted at 6 pm

        1. Thank you for the replies. Looks like it isn't high on the popularity list. We decided to eat at home instead last night and try Sam's some other time.

          1. re: swanton

            When you go either use one of the lots or look for a metered space, unless Sam's is not charging.

          2. I think the best thing about it is the view and big deck. Not such a huge plus in Feb. I've been a few times and the food is OK and the service is OK, but once the service seemed kind of stand-offish.

            1. had dinner there last night, our first non-brunch visit. Deck was packed with folks waiting for tables at 6:15, but our reservation got us a nice window table inside.

              I had the burger, which mentioned it was peppered. Holy moly I haven't been served that much pepper the rest of this year combined! Did manage to scrape a good amount of it off, but it was still much too peppery. Wife had the Portobello entree and loved it, and the salmon app was very good.
