Sam Snead's Tavern is one restaurant that plays off the name of infamous golfer and its location next door to the luxurious Homestaed Resort in Hot Springs,VA. As far as a restaurant, it comes in as a bogey. On my visit the food was average at best. The higher end entrees can't one close to matching what you have to... More

My husband and I ordered two rueben sandwiches and 2 cocktails. The ruebens were good, but the bill came out to over $70. Way over priced.

Food was good, not great. Service needs a bit of polish. Need to revamp the meatloaf dish. Sparse and over done.

This place has the ability to single handedly drive people away from coming to the Homestead. The food was almost inedible. Boring, stale, failed to be hot on numerous atttempts. It was so disappointing given its one of the Homestead restaurant options. The service -- uncaring, inattentive. It was embarrassing and we could not get out of there fast enough.... More

This place was recommended by the bell hop. I shouldn't have listened! The server said they are known for their steaks.... wrong again. This was my wife's birthday dinner. So now I'm in he dog house for choosing this place. Mediocre steak. A $75 dollar meal that wasn't worth $25. Don't recommend, will not go back!

We were staying at the Homestead Resort and decided to try one of the few restaurants in walking distance. While the food was good you end up paying more for the location than the food. If you are unable to get a reservation at one of the others then this is a decent fallback to try.

Great staff and food. Wonderful offerings just a walk from the Homestad. I definitely recommend! We had lunch, ordering sandwiches and salad, and all items were delicious. Staff were especially friendly and helpful and friendly with our 2 year-old, who was rambunctious and threw food on the ground!
