Valentines dinner with friends and family. Wait staff person very attentive. Good space for 8 but hard to hear across table as bar area right behind us. Generally like the food. I would advise getting the Serling cut medium not medium well. Still well cooked but not overdone. One person in party had a chicken dish that arrived cold and another had a fish dish they didn’t like. I think anyone who ordered beef or pork was satisfied.

As I live in Greenlinks right next door it is so very convenient. It's food and bar is reasonably priced and completes the resort feeling of living where I do.

We took friends to Sam Sneads because we knew it was casual, offered a diverse menu and good food reasonably priced. No one was disappointed. Happy hour is a good deal - 50% off drinks until 7 pm. A personal favorite is the burger - half-pounder, medium rare with fries. Very nicely prepared as ordered. Others had the special halibut platter, which received rave reviews, and the salad with salmon, also a favorite of one of our crowd. Overall, we had a really good time. The really nice thing about Sam Sneads - you can count on what you order to be very consistent with what it may have been the last time you ordered that item.

My husband and I ordered the same thing - steak cooked medium. Mine was fine but his was bloody and it had to be sent back - which meant that it didn't taste as good as it should have. Also, this was a birthday celebration. A group at another table got a dessert with a candle in it and we didn't get any recognition of my birthday even though I mentioned it when I made the reservation. I don't know if that was because we didn't order a dessert or if they just forgot or if they were not made aware of it by the reservation process.
We weren't charged for my husband's glass of wine because of the disappointing steak dinner. So that was a nice gesture.
This was not the first time we have had dinner at Sam Snead's. But it was the first time that we had a disappointing experience.

The snapper entree comes with a vegetable though it's not listed on the menu. Our server described the vegetable as a garnish, but it was a nice assortment of superfoods greenery - kale, cabbage, etc.

It would be nice if they can have something done for the noise level from the bar area. Maybe a glass wall or something....

Food was very disappointing. $30 for ‘fresh’ grouper. It was freezer burned and chewy and dry at the same time. Other meals were just ok. Not worth the time to send them back.

Took my parents out after a day of golf, and truly enjoyed the experience. Our food was fabulous, service was outstanding, and the Snead Family artifacts throughout the foyer and building were fun to see. Nice dining area to accommodate dressy or casual, and happy hour prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return!

Service was fine with a happy waiter. The Grouper was way over cooked and tough. The surf and turf - steak was well done instead of medium rare! Can't say I will go back there soon.
