What a shame. We just started our July vacation in Vermont And found Sam’s closed. Someone told us there was a management problem. We hope it can be resolved and one of Ludlow‘s best restaurants can reopen.

Spent several days in the area. Visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor review. Not disappointed. Sam's was a highlight. Both our meals (1 steak, 1 Fish) were excellent. Service top notch.

Staff was friendly. The ambience was romantic (left side of restaurant). Wednesdays they have a pasta bar. The steak I ordered was cooked perfectly and the piece of meat was so tender I could have used a butter knife to cut it. Very clean.
