About Sam’s Grill & Seafood Restaurant

Fresh fish grill featuring classic San Francisco dishes from the gold rush to the 1970s, Sam’s Grill is the fifth-oldest restaurant in the US, opened in 1867, shortly after the California gold rush. Sam’s takes pride in serving exceptionally fresh and local seafood alongside classic San Francisco dishes from the turn of the century. Boasting old-school curtained booths, and superior traditional formal service by waiters in tuxedos, Sam’s has been a cornerstone of the San Francisco restaurant scene for over 150 years. Come join us, and take a step back in time to a more civilized time where lunches always start with a cocktail. Sam's Grill and Seafood Restaurant accepts reservations at lunch and dinner.
