Sam's Tavern

Sam’s Tavern started in the1940’s, the original birthplace of Red Robin standing at the corner of Furhman and Eastlake in Seattle. Before they served gourmet burgers, offered bottomless fries, and adding the name “Red Robin”, it was just “Sam’s Tavern” and then “Sam’s Red Robin”. After dropping the name Sam, the rest is history....or is it?

Fast forward 70 years later to 2013 the originator “Sam’s Tavern” is reborn. This time it’s in the heart of Capitol Hill off 11th and Pike. Sam’s Tavern is an energetic place to visit on a Friday and Saturday night, but also your “go-to” take-out on any night of the week.

We are a burger joint!

Two straws one shake... any fries with that? #samstavern

Mondays are ruff. 🐾

Come soak up this last little bit of sun and treat yourself to a cold one like our buddy @bernedude206 here. #samstavern #hairofthedog

We're looking at you #Amazon employees. 😏

Just sayin'... we're right downstairs. #theresstilltime #cincodedrinko

Tequila ✅
Cervezas ✅
Margaritas ✅
Very loose rules regarding dancing on the bartop with your friends... ✅

It's #CincodeMayo at Sam's! We're loaded up with more tequila, cervezas, and loaded Coronas then we know what to do with. Our margarita slushy machines are ready to spill over. And if someone doesn't get here soon to wack one of these piñatas we're pretty sure they're gonna start busting open on their own!

LIVE DJs. All-day tequila specials. The best staff you can shake a piñata stick at. What's not to love!? 🎉

#SMH. 🙄

Tomorrow's the day to saddle up and shoot your tequila the way it's meant to be taken - straight up! And out of a shotski with 3 of your friends of course. 😜

Pinatas. Prizes. Lots of Herradura and El Jimador specials. What's not to love?! See you all mañana! 🎉

The only thing a girl should chase is her tequila... so you better get your a** down here on #CincodeMayo!

All-day El Jimador and Herradura specials plus some of the hottest DJs spinning at both our South Lake Union and Redmond locations. Flights of tequila served up in shotskis and as always, NEVER A COVER at Sam's! Even our Capitol Hill location. 👌

Being offered a shot of tequila on Cinco de Mayo is like being offered a cup of tea in England... it would be impolite to refuse.

So bring your best manners and join us this Friday for the biggest #CincodeMayo celebration this side of Jalisco! LIVE DJ. Pinatas. Drink Specials. Prizes.

Come early, Stay late... We'll be riding this party into the tequila sunset. 🌅


Join us this Friday for #CincodeMayo and all-day El Jimador and Herradura tequila specials! Last one standing wins. 🎉

And Ya.. And Ya.. Don't Stop! 🎉

You know the drill. Saturday night. Beautiful people. Dance grooves for your dance moves!

Plus, order some "Patronessy" shots to officially bid Marshawn goodbye. #BEASTMODE drink of choice: 1 part Patron, 1 part Hennessy. 🥃

Hat tip. 🎩

"Shannon has worked in our kitchen at South Lake Union since we opened and he's been a HUGE part of our success. Today is his last day though, on to new adventures.

This morning to thank him we dedicated this barstool to him... This way he knows he always has a seat at our bar." - James & Brianna Snyder
