At Sam Snead's Tavern you can feast on your passion for the game, as well as great food.

About the restaurant
Blu began its journey in 2002. The sushi experience and sushi restaurants were limited in the early 2000s. The creators of Blu saw the need to bring this wonderful cuisine to the forefront in South Florida. The vision was to create an environment where people of all ages and cultures could come together and enjoy the art of sushi.
And now fast forward to today, Blu has evolved into the premier place to enjoy the extraordinary flavor profiles of sushi and all that accompanies this fascinating cuisine.
“We want to bring sushi to the masses, whether they be connoisseurs or novices. We want to make them love the Blu experience. We want our guests to enjoy a fresh, social, fun and eclectic experience each time they enter our doors. To do this, we want to touch each of our guest’s senses and make them all sing, with great music, wonderful service, a delicious menu and perfect spaces.”
We hope you enjoy your experience today!

Ambiance is nothing like we expected. Have been to Gulf Coast restaurant and it's much more classy. This was like a fast food place rather than fine dining. Too expensive for fast food!

We enjoy eating at Il Pomodoro regularly and often recommend it to friends who like good Italian food. The service is very personable. They are accommodating if you make requests. Their bread is excellent as is their food.
