Diner Reviews
  • "Sam Snead's restaurant was great! Ordered the crab cakes and they are made in house and to die for if you like crab! Also had a rib eye which was cooked medium rare and delicious! Had a great view of the golf course also! Highly recommend this place!"

  • "We have enjoyed Sam Snead's before. The service was a little slow and the food was 50/50. One person had the ribs. They were meaty and the sauce was delicious. Another had the fish and chips which were nice and crisp served with cole slaw. I had a tasty Caesar to start and then the chicken marsala. The chicken was extremely dry and the sauce was heavy."

  • "What a gem! Eating outside on the lanai looking over the lush golf course is a wonderful view. Plus the food was very good and our waitress Vanessa was outstanding--best service we have had in a long time. I highly recommend this place!"

  • "Apropos of the restaurant name, a "clubby" golf themed atmosphere with indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the golf course. We lunched on the outside covered veranda in perfect weather, the kind of day and environment where you would like to sit for hours with light food and a bottle of wine, contemplating one's good fortune for being able to be there. The lunch, (for four) a sashimi plate and three sandwiches/burgers, was excellent, fairly priced, and highlighted by service that was prompt, friendly, and professional. All in all a very pleasant experience."

  • "We've eaten lunch at Sam Snead's Oak Grill & Tavern a number of times this year. Based on our very positive experiences, we made a reservation to bring our family members (visiting from out of town) there for lunch. We were seated at a great table overlooking the golf course and anticipated another great lunch. Unfortunately, our server was a disappointment and as a result, so was our experience. He had NO personality and was not attentive. We now realize that Aldo, our server in the past, made all the difference."

  • "We used to love Sam Snead's when it was in North Naples. The move to Lely brought it to a new, very lovely location, but the food is only fair. Service was okay. Had to send my lunch back as it was too spicy, replacement did come quickly. Sweet potato fries were lukewarm and can't compare to others we've had in Naples."

  • "Sam Sneads is great for a vibrant bar scene and some pub style food. I wouldn't expect any amazing culinary feats from the chef, but it's acceptable and fun. The view of the golf course is beautiful."

  • "We've eaten at Sam Snead's many times and since they moved to Lely and it's a much longer trip for us... we still go. After being seated we waited a while for our server. Our appetizer took quite a long time and then our entree took even longer and my husband's salmon was burned. No one came back to see if everything was okay. My husband is the type that rather than make a big deal out of the situations we just won't go back again. I ordered a salad that was stone cold and made for quite some time... the dressing was so cold it was gelled and hard to stir."

  • "Clean place and setting was outstanding. Great for lunch and Sat/Sun get way. Menu was diverse and had many choices. Food was average to good."

  • "I'm been enjoying Sammy's with friends and family since they opened. They have exceptional burgers and the usual bar fare but their steaks and fish are also outstanding. Grilled salmon was expertly done with a generous portion that gave me lunch the next day. Tara is the greatest, warmest server while "Tommy Gun" Tom makes the best Grey Goose Martinis anywhere around. Go there!!!"

  • "I would like to state that everyone from the reservations desk to the wait staff was terrific. The food was outstanding and VERY fresh! Rachel, our server was a sweetheart and terrific ;-)"

  • "Great ambiance, excellent servers. Difficult to obtain reservations, although restaurant was more than half empty between 5 and 6:30, but we were not able to reserve during that time period for a table of 6. Love the bar, Tommy and Patty, and Tara are very attentive to details. We frequent the bar, especially when hosting company at Lely."

  • "Excellent place for dinner and if you are into golf Sam Snead"s Tavern has some great pictures of all the famous players who shaped the game."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This place offers the type of menu you find at a country club, everything from burgers and sandwiches to entrees. I have found the food to be consistently good. In particular, I think the crab cakes are very good. Service can be a little slow at times. The ambiance is like being in a clubhouse at a golf club, which it is."

  • "Nestled between Lely and GreenLinks Resorts is a real find - Sam Snead's Oak Grill and Tavern. We found their oak grill was perfect for steaks and salmon, but the lobster and shrimp pasta was just as delicious. The waiters were attentive and the generous happy hour (2 pm - 7 pm) a plus. The desserts are all made in-house and worth saving a bit of your appetite to indulge in them. The food at Sam Snead's was so enjoyable that we made a repeat visit within 4 days!"

  • "This is the first time my wife and were back in Naples in a couple of years and our first time at the Lely location. We dined with my wife's sister and her husband who are living in Naples most of the year. What we found was an old favorite still good in the new location. We ate in the dining room, which was very comfortable with a view of the golf course. Our food was fresh and prepared exactly how it was ordered for all four in our party."

  • "Sam's is great for the neighborhood. It is a nice looking place with casual dining.However, the servers need to welcome the customers and bring over the drinks and bread basket faster if they want to turn over the table in a timely manner. Food was served wrong but servers were apologetic and eager to get it fixed, but this should not happen.Food was very tasty."
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "I have had crab cakes all over and these are the best! 4 ounce crab cakes with 3 ounces of crab meat! The roumelude sauce accompaning the crab cake had just the right amount of kick. The happy hour is wonderful also. 2-7 PM. Half off all drinks including Call drinks! We will return."

  • "There were 6 of us...I was the only one who had been there. Everyone left talking about how great the food was and how good the service was considering they were very busy with a very large group. We tried a variety of mixed drinks, and ordered from all portions of the menu...some had soup, some salad, some had appetizers, one a burger, another fish and chips, two had steak and everyone enjoyed their meal."

  • "Five of us enjoyed our dinner at Sam Snead's. The service atmosphere and food quality was excellent; and the Happy Hour is great value. The only disappointment was the Night's Special cut of Prime Rib, which was a small portion for $28. Otherwise, it was excellent."

  • "is certainly true at Sam Snead's. The prices are very affordable, the servings are plentiful and tasty, the staff from the Manager to the servers to the bartenders to the people clearing tables are all friendly and attentive. Although the menu is heavily Pub food, they do have an evening special to add variety. We visit often and will continue to do so."

  • "Tonight's experience was not up to par. We selected the restaurant for a special dinner with our teenage grandchildren. Though I had made a reservation one or two days prior, they were not ready for us and gave us a variety of excuses. Finally, they put two tables together for us and we were seated. After taking our drink orders and dinner choices, we were forgotten. After 30 minutes we begged for some bread though it was obviously overheated as the outside was almost too crunchy to bite through. Luckily the food, when it finally arrived, was delicious. The scallops, shrimp and lobster pasta, ribs, crabcake, and chicken marsala were all enjoyed. Hopefully service will return to the previous level."

  • "We went there thinking the place would be much more fine dining and dressed accordingly. We walked in to people wearing shorts...the dining room was bright, no table cloths. VERY CASUAL. However, we were very satisfied with the food. The crab cake appetizer was phenominal. The happy hour is from 2-7 pm, great drinks which included Call liquors as well. We will return, we will dress more casually."

  • "My wife and I recently had dinner here and the waiter was horrible. He took our order, never told us what the specials were, never checked to see if we needed anything else or how the food was. We got the feeling we were bothering him by being there. The hostess was great, she delivered our food and cleared our plates. I wish she had been at the door on the way out so I could have tipped her, she deserved it! We did notice that our waiter was much more helpful with the larger parties than our little party of 2."

  • "Everyone is very friendly and the service is excellent. The restaurant is very large as is the bar. Drinks are well made. The thing that stops it from being an outstanding restaurant is the Food. They have a few specialty iteams that are really good but other than that the menu is not exciting. The special was overcooked."

  • ""Tavern" And that describes it best. On the plus side, the food was extremely well prepared (IE, steaks). Our server, ( Rachel, first night on the job), hit it out of the park and won herself a 30% tip. Downside. The Bar, a human conflagration, is an audible and visual appendage of the Dining Room, contributing to the 'Mess Hall Atmosphere' one recalls of Military Service. I'd call it an 'upscale' Sports Bar, which has become de rigueur just about anywhere you go. Don't expect too much, and you won't be disappointed."
