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.

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.

Shrimp cocktail was an excellent appetizer. Bruschetta was disappointing - almost mushy and bland. Service started out very good but then waitress disappeared for large chunks of time.

Love, love, love Sam Snead's. It's a great local neighborhood restaurant. It's the place to be. During season you have to reserve weeks in advance. But after the beginning of May, it's easier to get a table. Sam Snead's beats The Players Club, hands down for food, service and ambience.

Ribeye was cooked perfectly as were the filets and NY Strips ordered at our table. They kitchen cooked up some homemade chips with blue cheese and balsamic glaze on them...delicious. It's nice that they give you a salad with your entree and you get choice of Caesar, wedge or house.

Great place for a meal if you are staying in the Lely area. Excellent golf course views.
I had the yellow tail snapper and it was wonderful -- great review were also given for the grouper. Wine list is adequate and they make a great cocktail.

We love Snead's. Great view. Close to home Terrific happy hour. Good food and service at a reasonable price. Just don't order ribs. I have had them twice, never again. Hardly any meat and overcooked to the point they are hard to distinguish from shoe leather. I went two years before giving them a second chance. Still the worst ever. But otherwise, I love the place.

I have been to this location multiple times and service and food have always been good. This time though the server forgot about our table. Then when the food came out they tried serving it to another table. My dish was set on another table and toddlers picked at it and when they realized it was to be sent to our table the waiter picked up my dish and tried serving it to me. I sent it back for. A new one. The other people's food came to our table cold because it had been sitting on a tray in the corner for a while

We tried several times to get a reservation to find tables available only after 8:30 PM...even when we tried a couple of days in advance. So guess our expectations were elevated when we finally managed to get a reservation when we booked almost a week in advance, combined with the 4 star ratings and other reviews, but the noise level and the so-so food left us disappointed.

I have been here many many times. The last two have been disappointing. Both were later in evening around 8 I ordered the ribs and was disappointed . They were overlooked and pretty dry. I told my waiter and he told management. They offered to take $10 off. Wow . I did not ear many and did not take any home. The attitude was sad.
My wife had a strip streak and it was ok. After having many great meals here, I will give one more chance. But night management is weak at customer service. Many times that I have been there during the day overall experience was way better.

Sam Snead's Tavern has become a favorite "go-to" spot for us over the years. Conveniently located within Lely Resort, the restaurant is situated at the Flamingo Island/Mustang golf club house and has lots of window tables overlooking the course. The outside patio is quite spacious as well. The food is consistently good, on our most recent visit for lunch, our group of four sampled everything from burgers, to salads (with salmon) to fish and chips. All were thoroughly enjoyed and the service was efficient as well as pleasant. Highly recommended as a good value for casual dining.
