No trip to "Sams" is complete with out a seat at the bar chatting it up with locals. This is the "Cheers" of Lake Tahoe.

Great food and an even better place to stop for a beer on the way back from Zephyr Cove Beach.

Usually stay just down the road, so nice having a bar & grill within walking distance. It's definitely a locals type place so don't expect fine dining. It's good bar food and the drinks & service are more than adequate. Nice for a snowy night or a sunny afternoon on the patio.

good beer/good food/close to home-pool table, but totally ok to take the kids in to eat too - menu is general bar food but all the burgers and sandwiches are great....pizza is good but a little pricey

We stopped by Sam's on the way to a snowmobile outing in Zephyr Cove. What a great place! The employees were super nice and inviting, the food was perfect bar/comfort food and the ambience was nice and cozy. Oh and we happened to be there during a killer drink special-our mixed drinks were only $2.50! You can't beat that. Our only regret was that we didn't get to sit at the tables in front of the roaring fire. This is a great place that has great service and real good, no frills food.

Burgers, pizza, fish tacos, chili and cold beer. Slot machines that take coins. Locals at the bar and friendly servers.

Sam's is the antithesis of the restaurants in Tahoe that cater to tourists. There's a nice patio for sunny weather. They even deliver in the area until 10 pm.

It's not fine cuisine, it's comfort food at the local's favorite dive.
