    We did sit at the table for awhile before a server came to help us. My grilled shrimp was over cooked and my grilled asparagus was undercooked. Lamb chops and macaroni were good, nice flavor.

    I rated the food a 3 but really it could be 3 and a half. We were only able to have 2 appetizers. We chose the artichokes which we were disappointed with. They were not BAD per se but not our cup of tea. I think we prefer artichokes to speak for themselves instead of being drowned in a balsamic sauce. And a bit messy to eat. Our bad. The Chorizo & cheese was wonderful. The sausage packed a kick which we loved and those bread and butter pickles were great with it. We Will come again another time and have some entree's. My two Lemon Drop Martini's were amazing!! And our server was Layton was awesome!! He took great care of us.

    This was my second time dining here. First time for lunch, everything was absolutely wonderful! I had the Pomegranate Pear Martini - it was heavenly! Also, order the Fried Green Tomatoes as the appetizer and honestly they were the best fried green tomatoes I have ever had in my whole life! I wish I could have them once a week. For the entree I ordered the Chopped Salmon Salad and it was also very delightful and filling! Cannot wait to come back and try something else!

    Excellent service, wonderful server. Can’t remember her name but young, long blond hair, very nice and attentive to our table. Food was okay, not great. I’ve eaten here before a few times and always enjoyed it. Just sort of underwhelmed this time, but I’ll be back. Ordered the skewered shrimp and it was bland. Won’t order that again.

    This was my fourth and probably last visit . I asked about wine and waitress was snarky , reminding me this is a tap bar . Not necessary . Food is highly salted , could not finish tenderloin, mashed potatoes, or asparagus . Way too much salt, and I like salt. Place is not what it used to be.

    Food was excellent. Only issue-hostess told us to park in Valet area as we arrived a few minutes early for our 5pm reservation. Not long after 5 we were informed by the valet a tow truck had been called to tow our vehicle. His attitude was awful even after it was explained to him that the hostess told us to park there. Hostess told us later they usually check with her before calling a tow truck but did not that night.

    Love Samantha's! I believe they put something addictive in the jalapeno stuffed, bacon wrapped, quail in black cherry demi-glaze? I get it to share even if I'm getting a different entree. Their gumbo is as good as anybody's. Get reservations! if you plan to go!
