The second outpost of the Half Moon Bay establishment will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week (see hours below). It also boasts a full bar, oyster bar and outside seating.
Sam's is owned by the same folks who were behind Campo 185, which lasted about nine months in the same space. With a new paint job, new signage and interior changes, it's definitely reinvented itself (though this week, an unlit "Campo" light sign still eerily hung in one of the front windows).
The restaurant is currently taking reservations on OpenTable.
