Met up with some friends while visiting Portland, husband said his burger was great! There are plenty of pool tables for everyone to enjoy, great staff that was attentive. The only bad thing I could say is that it was kind of cold inside. Would...More

I was walking by Sam's after seeing a film at The Hollywood Theatre and thought it looked like an interesting place to drop in and have a drink. I was surprised to find a pool tournament in progress. So I ordered a drink and played...More

Very friendly service, great burgers and good selection of beverages. The prices seemed a bit high to me, but the overall experience was pleasant.

First time going for a tournament. Hadn't eaten, so ordered a Cobb Salad. It was outstanding! Best restaurant salad I had in ages.Very fresh ingredients, and beautifully presented. All the other food being served looked great also. Generous portions.

Sadly, this is now the last place in Hollywood to get a decent breakfast. Unfortunately, (unlike the Hollywood Burger Bar) Sam's is a bar. So you can not bring anyone under 21.

Casual atmosphere with lots of seating and pool tables. Most if not all of the food is homemade. Burgers are good and the specials have been pretty consistently good. Service is fast and friendly and they have a good selection of drink options.
