Samuel Horne’s Tavern


If your wanderings find you in Historic Folsom, and you have a hankering for an authentic old-school tavern atmosphere – complete with a great selection of American craft beers and delicious, meaty fare – head to Samuel Horne’s Tavern on Sutter Street.

It’s what we did over the Christmas break one evening with my sister and brother-in-law. The tavern is tucked away, and when you walk in, don’t be intimidated by the fact that every table and booth is filled (this is always a good sign!). Head to the back where the bar is located, place your drink order, and enjoy the conversation while you wait for a table to open up – or buy a group a round of beers in exchange for their table, which is what we did!

The menu is carefully edited, which is another good sign, focusing on a wide selection of beers, burgers, sausages and salads. We started with the bleu cheese bacon fries and beer – for me, it was Red Nectar and for my dinner companions, it was Allagash White (for a list of the latest beers on tap, which changes frequently, check their website). We studied the menu and decided on the Blue Plate Special (Hawaiian burger), the Johnny Cash Burger (a house bestseller), the Sausage Sampler Plate and the Spinach Salad. Everything was fresh and delicious, and we inhaled our dinners, a sure indication of how good the food was.

The tavern itself is beautiful, as are most of the buildings in Historic Folsom. The dark wood and embossed tin ceiling transport you to a different place and time. The tavern atmosphere is casual; in fact, you place your dinner order at the bar, receive a number and then your food is brought to you.

If you’re looking for a great selection of craft beers and good food in a warm atmosphere, head to Sam Horne’s. Cheers!
