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.

I ordered a side of snap peas - it was overcooked and soggy, and didn't have much taste.

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.

Had a very nice lunch with a colleague yesterday. Made a reservation on line and was seated immediately when I got there. Had good service, good food, and we were not rushed. Always great.

The grilled artichoke and fried green tomatoes were excellent. The hamburger would have better with grilled onion.

We waited over 10 minutes before I had to ask for a server for our table. The food was fabulous and once we had a server he was very nice.

Mandy, our server, was spot on for everything. She easily answered every question from our party of seven. Everyone's dish was spectacular both from a presentation and taste perspective.

Waiter disappeared and rarely checked on us. We waited 20 minutes for another pitcher of water and we ordered drinks he forgot to bring them. The food was not what I expected for what we paid. Will not be going back.

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.

Every part of the meal was memorable and delicious. We each had a cocktail, shared an appetizer and salad and our own entrees. We finished it off with a shared dessert. Our waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back soon!

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!

professional service, lively atmosphere, well-crafted drinks (we had old-fashioneds), decent pricing, and an intriguing menu. loved the grouper tacos and the portobello sandwich. the craft of water on each table is a much appreciated pleasure.

We were celebrating two birthdays. The food was delicious and the noise level was high. It was a Saturday evening and the acoustics make it difficult to carry on conversations. That’s my only issue with Samantha’s. I wish there were places for people who want to visit while enjoying the food, rather than just enjoy the food. It is not a place to take someone you haven’t seen in a long time.

It was my daughter’s birthday 21 and the hostess wasn’t friendly and didn’t seem happy to have us there. The waitress rush us to make our drinks orders and we didn’t know what the special of the day was. I asked them to bring a desert out in my quest and never got it. We really wanted to make it a special dinner but instead it wasn’t!! Our streaks weren’t cooked the way we wanted. I won’t be back

The appetizer was excellent, fried green tomatoes, the wine, $22 a glass was weak, more like a house wine, and the main course was a conglomeration of red snapper, green olives, other cooked relish and Brussels sprouts, there wasn’t a division of the food and it all ran together...as too much in a small space....nothing stood out as delicious...way overpriced...the crepe brûlée was very good. I should have gotten appetizer and dessert and saved $65.
