Part of the Indian Springs Resort, Sam’s has one of the best outdoor dining scenes in Calistoga, and is located on a beautiful property with palm trees, hammocks, and lawn games everywhere. Prepare to sink in around the bonfire or take a seat under the massive clear tent that keeps the outdoor space open (and heated) year-round. The brunch and dinner here are excellent, with options like the better-than-it-should-be breakfast pizza, and grilled avocado toast on seeded bread. At dinner, get the grilled pork chop with polenta, and the hearty roasted cauliflower steak in a spicy tomato ragu. Regardless of when you eat here, all meals should end with the candy cap churros served with a dulce de leche dip we dream about.
