Sam Walker’s American Tavern opened in January 2022, conveniently located in Woburn, MA. Our name is inspired by Captain Samuel Walker, Sr., a well-respected selectman and Woburn resident in the 1600’s, who was the first person in the city to be granted a tavern and innkeeper license, as well as being the first person to sell and distill liquor. Our ties to Woburn run deep, with one of our managing partners being a lifelong resident, and we knew we wanted the name of our restaurant to reflect the rich history of this great city. Sam Walker’s is a neighborhood restaurant and bar offering outstanding food, beverages and hospitality to our guests in a welcoming atmosphere. 

Conveniently located off on Montvale Avenue, Sam Walker’s offers a comfortable and classic setting, framed with soaring ceilings and a grand center bar as well as expansive patio space. Our seasonal menus are approachable, carefully crafted and consist of fresh, home-spun American fare with an in-house barbeque program, skillfully led by our Director of Culinary Operations, Chef Chris Bauers. Our beverage program is creative, fun and ever-changing. We place an emphasis on keeping it local and feature over 50 bottles and draughts, many of which are from our favorite local craft breweries. Our carefully selected wine list delivers new and old world varietals, with several wines and seasonal sangrias on tap. Our cocktails are crafted with fresh ingredients that change with the seasons.

Sam Walker’s is committed to our guests’ experience with a true passion for hospitality and service. Saddle up to one of our high top tables inside or out, or grab a cozy booth for a more traditional dining experience. In addition to regular dining and bar service, we also offer a host of options when it comes to planning private events. We look forward to having you join us!
