Sam's St. Louis Steakhouse Restaurant Review: In the century or so since the first restaurant appeared in this building, its pastoral neighborhood has morphed into a suburban recreation hub. Families who appreciate a good steak will do well to stop at Sam’s, but the main clientele is businessmen and couples celebrating. There are several rooms, making for a more intimate feel than at some of the other steak joints in town, and service tends to be capable, if slow at times. Quality red meat is brushed with mild barbecue-like sauce that adds zing. The pepper filet packs more zing yet; the lobster, by contrast, is buttery and delicate. Expect super-size baked potatoes, routine desserts and a standard wine list.
