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.

We have lunch and dinner there often and always enjoy the food and view.
It would be nice if they can have something done for the noise level from the bar area. Maybe a glass wall or something....

We live nearby so this is one of our go to places. Sam Snead’s never disappoints. Always fresh ingredients, comfortable atmosphere, great service, nice happy hour & a wonderful view of the golf course make a winning combination.

A great local spot for any occasion. We always enjoy the great service and golf course setting.
The food is always good and the prices are reasonable. One of our favorite places in Naples for a casual meal.

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!

We are always happy when we dine at Sam Sneeds Restaurant. We love the menu and the ability to talk to each other without being interrupted by loud noise. And, most important, the food is always good.

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.

Nice friendly place to go for lunch or dinner. Great atmosphere. The restaurant
has updated their interior and celebrates Sam Snead. Good food at reasonable prices. Good service from friendly staff. And when the weather permits, sitting out. on the terrace, overlooking the course, is great fun. Go there, you won't be disappointed.

We visited the recently redecorated dining room for lunch and found only a few other diners. Too bad
because their cuisine is delightful. Their patty melt is the best in Naples, but overall can only give a
5-star rating for dinner.

My husband ordered the usually delicious "fall of the bone" ribs & they were not! The ribs were dry with little flavor. I ordered the coconut shrimp & it was mediocre. I wouldn't order it again.

Sam Snead's serve one of the most delicious prime rib specials on Friday night. Included in the excellent price is your choice of 3 salads. We always order the perfect Caesar. They offer 1/2 price well drinks and the desserts are acceptable. Excellent choice for out-of-season Friday night dining.
