I had the lamb shank. It was de-lish-us! My husband had prime rib and it was great, too, he said. Service was great. First time back with COVID-19 protocols, which kind of cramps the atmosphere, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Everything was very good, considering Covid-19

We were seated outside and it was Father's Day weekend so they had a tough road to follow. Waitress was very good, food was good. Only thing I did not like -- Loud music and flies. The flies do come from us choosing to eat outside, and the music is my personal choice. Therefore my rating is 4stars.

First time out with friends in 3 months. Social distancing strongly observed, tables and chairs were wiped down after guests left. Very attentive staff, but not intrusive.

One of a very few fine dining restaurants in Pooler. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is pleasant. This time, the service was very slow, and the restaurant seemed a bit less than sparkling clean. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

Each year we stop in at Sam Snead on our way to Florida and then back to Canada, love the restaurant, food is awesome. Service was so so this time, took the manager to come and clear our app plates away as our server was not doing it.

I used OpenTable to make a 6:30P reservation. It still took 15 minutes to be seated after arrival. And, while it was a busy Saturday night, it took an hour to get our food after being seated. All three dishes were over-cooked. They were flavorful, but not what I expected from a "high-end" restaurant. The ambiance was not bad, but too dark to read the menu. Not a "bad" experience, but not worth returning for a $100+ ticket!

Good location, easy to access off of I-95 in Pooler. Nice atmosphere, sometimes the noise level is too high. Food always good. Staff friendly and attentive. Sam Snead is a step up from a Logan's or a Long Horn's experience.

This is the second time my wife and I have ate here. It was just as amazing as it was a year ago. With just our second visit, this has easily become a go to spot. The food and environment is outstanding. I would just recommend getting a reservation ahead of time. If not, you could be waiting awhile, not due to slow service but because everyone wants to enjoy the food and environment. Cant go wrong here!!!!

Near the Savannah Airport, this is a regular stop for us on the way from New York south. The menu is varied with a good and affordable wine list, and includes steaks, chops, seafood, sandwiches and salads. Excellent and friendly service, reservations which were honored right on time, and an easy walk back to the hotel. I recommend Sam Snead’s very highly and look forward to many returns.

On our travel South we always stop at this restaurant in Savanna and have never been disappointed. Our salads were crisp and cold, the beef tender, the salmon fresh and the apple pie a nice surprise.

Love the location within walking distance of many hotels off of I95. Service would have gotten 4 stars if our meals had come out of the kitchen hot. It was obvious they sat out in kitchen until they made their way to our table. Other than that the steaks and Prime Rib was very good.

We were disappointed that the restaurant staff ignored our reservation information which specifically stated we were celebrating our 43rd Wedding Anniversary. When the waitress finally brought our bill for payment, we asked her what they normally did for an anniversary, and she detailed a list of things. When we pointed out that our reservation clearly stated that we were down from Atlanta and celebrating our Anniversary, she said the Hostess failed to note the information. The waitress said since no one told her, they were not going to do anything for us!

We tried the Prime Rib Flatbread, which was very good, and the Tuna Sashimi, which was just okay. The house salad was also really good. I thought the prices were fair for what we received.

Fish special of grouper was over cooked and served in a pile on the plate. Grouper tasted rubbery and was served with rice and asparagus. This meal was overpriced at $35. Server was friendly but didn’t offer rolls and didn’t refill water without being asked.

This place has it all, and it is just off the highway. The food is always excellent as is the service. Its old fashioned décor with dark wood panelling and booths keeps the ambience cozy and inviting. We always look forward to the next time.

Close to a number of hotels near the Savannah Airport and a great option to all of the chain eateries. I was there on the early side, 5:30pm so no wait but I was not alone, a number of tables had guests. Service was attentive, a big menu and my meal was excellent. I thought the prices were fair for what what I ordered. The only suggestion was that the lighting was a little dim for those of us with aging eyes, otherwise a wonderful find.

Food is consistently good. Sometimes the service is slow especially when you first arrive. We visited during a cold snap and it was very cold in the restaurant. This spoiled the evening.

My wife and I both had the 7 oz barrel cut filet mignon with grilled green beans and red skin mashed potatoes. It was the best filet we have ever had.we will definitely be going back for special occasion meals such as Thanksgiving or even Christmas if it's open. Hopefully it will. We love this place
