From atmosphere, waitstaff, drinks, and chicken sandwich it was wonderful evening out with my main squeeze! Casual dress and casual attitude. Loved all the pictures of Sam Snead and the history of the restaurant being an old bank, still has bank vault door to wine room. I had a tender delish chicken sandwich and my husband regretted not getting the... More

It was all good - not great but it was a nice casual meal as a departure from the Homestead. I would have preferred a different table and I think our experience would have been better but we'll go back again.

Ribs & meatloaf were dry and overcooked. A dinner for two adults with two drinks will run you $80, which is quite a bit for sub par food.

This pub has a great ambience. It is small and decorated with golf memorabilia, particularly Sam Snead's. The service was really good and the food was very good, too. The prices are a bit high. Worth a visit, but I would suggest a reservation. This place is not open for lunch.

We visited the Omni Homestead for a week on a 60th Wedding anniversary celebration with a family of 14 people ranging in age from two and a half to eighty three. We visited this well run pub/restaurant twice while we were there. Both times we had two separate adjacent tables of 8 and 6 due to the size of the... More

This quaint tavern, complete with creaking floors, is within walking distance to the Omni Homestead. Good food. Great atmosphere.

2 couples for early Sunday dinner. Salads were yummy. Filet was good, cooked perfectly. Crab & Mac was good. Fish & chips very greasy... Pretty much inedible. Nice local beer selection. Service was below average. Billing was mess.

We had a Friday night dinner here and weren't impressed with the food or atmosphere, but the staff were all friendly and accommodating. I follow a gluten free diet and was thrilled to learn they have options, even though they don't have a gf menu. My server was familiar with which items were gf, and which could be modified -...
