Decent establishment with fair food. Waitstaff was quick and helpful. They were not busy while we were there. I had shrimp cocktail nice size but only 4 or 5 on plate.
Husband had a Reuben which he said was very good.
Will certainly try again.

Usually our go to place. Service was less than par. Lazy and lethargic best way to describe. Otherwise food was excellent. Tv’s and sound system piped in music both blaring. Bad combination.

Great food and a great environment overlooking the golf course. Nice dining room and bar area for watching a game. This place is not just for golfers after playing a round.

Glad this was not my first visit at Sam Snead’s as the service was not up to the usual standard. There was 4 of us that were at the table. Unfortunately, it was one woman first time there. The food was as good as always but the server was horrible. The salmon was cooked to perfection. The flatbread was filling while the soup and sandwich was just enough. The clam chowder was loaded with clams and potatoes. The tuna fish was good. It was apparent that the server didn’t want to be there that day. Usually the servers are upbeat and friendly. This server never smiles and didn’t even return to see if everything was ok. The one person who had never been there indicated she wouldn’t go back even though she thought the food was good but she thought the service was bad. The other three of us explained that this was not the typical service.

The food is consistently good and the service is wonderful. We went there for a girl catch up. The food was good. The turkey club had at least 2/3 of a lb of turkey. The chicken flats were tasty but their New England clam chowder was outstanding. The service that Austin provided was fantastic.

We wanted an early light meal as we have the occasional “skinny day.”
The shrimp cocktail was perfect for me and know my husband loved his Fish
and Chips. The fish is Cod and my husband thinks it’s the best Fish and
Chips in the Naples area. The scales agreed on our choices the next morning.
We’re so lucky to have this comfortable restaurant in the middle of Lely to
accommodate the many local neighborhoods.

Wow, thank you so much for the review! We are so glad you were able to find choices to fit your needs for the day, and truly enjoyed them. Our fish and chips are definitely one of the best in Naples! Hope to see you again soon!

Nice leisurely lunch with the ladies! We had a corner table, which was perfect. Our server did not check in on us that often, perhaps sensing that we were in no rush. However if you want a quick in and out meal, do let the server know. Otherwise you may be a little frustrated. Very good food, polite staff, one of our go-to places in the area!
