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.

Excellent service. but too dark. Needed to take a shuttle since it was away from the resort and too long for us to walk. Reasonable prices...good food.

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 -...

My wife and I went here for dinner while staying at the Homestead. Save yourself money, time, and tastebuds by going anywhere else (try the Waterwheel restaurant 5 miles up the road!). There was no need for reservations because the place was pretty empty (on a Friday night). Our appetizer of nachos with Irish corn beef was pretty bad; it... More

I would skip this place. The interior has some old-school charm - but that is about it. Food is sub-par and the wine is overpriced for basically a pub.

Ordinarily I order a burger in taverns, but the soup of the day, tomato bisque, sounded so good that i ordered a cup of it with the house salad. I was not disappointed, only thing that could have made it better would be a grilled cheese sandwich featuring pimento and cheddar on an appropriate bread. Salad was played artfully with... More

This quaint and comfortable restaurant was walking distance from the Homestead but a bus was available for those who don't care to walk. The food was comfortable rather than spectacular. It was a nice environment for families of which there were quite a few with children of all ages. The food was reasonably priced and service was good. We will... More

Snead's is an excellent, cozy tavern environment in downtown Hot Springs. The steaks and fish are truly excellent. The sandwiches are delicious and full sized. The earlier seatings like 6 or 6:30pm have put us in the east room which had a number of families with some pretty noisy kids. Not a big problem, but we'll plan to dine at... More
