On March 16th, 2020, we made the difficult decision to temporarily close our restaurant in response to the global health crisis surrounding the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). Our commitment to employee and guest safety meant that we could no longer open our dining rooms to the community we have served for 37 years.  All of our 76 employees have been furloughed.

Many of you have asked how you can help our employees directly. 100% of the donations made here will go to our employees who are no longer able to earn a living because of this forced closure to the public. This includes our cooks, bartenders, servers, host, managers and many more who are the heart of our Restaurant. 

On behalf of the Sam Diego's staff, we are grateful for your consideration and generosity.  Follow our FACEBOOK page to get updates on our progress toward opening our doors again to YOU, our valued customers.

With gratitude,
