So, it's a tavern--snug, friendly, busy on a Sunday night. Low light, nice bar. This used to be a bank and the old vault is a wine cellar of sorts. Good service and VERY accommodating to special dietary needs. GreAt beef, fish and chips and chicken pot pie. Solid choice!

Temperatures in the high 90's with heat index at 100+ and they left us outside, all the people with 5:30 reservations. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we got there about 5:20. It's pretty hot for me and for my elderly mother it was all she could do to not faint yet they wouldn't unlock the front door and let... More

good prices, good food. If you're a golfer, you'll love all the Snead memorabilia. Nice walk from main hotel, although the shuttle will run you there as well.

Food was standard pub fare at an elevated cost. Fish and chips were very good but not a good value. Service was excellent.

Delightful place for casual dinner while enjoying Homestead. Short walk to restaurant from Homestead and a varied menu make this local pub a great place to visit. Definitely different astomsphere from hotel. The meatloaf was a delicious choice paired with a local beer.

We went to this restaurant seated rather quickly. Waited for drinks....ordered Samuel Adams served Budweiser at $6.50. The same things happened when I ordered another Samuel Adams. Could have been a language barrier as waitress spoke very broken English. Meal was lunch size portions for inflated dinner prices. Food was average. Salad dressing a little too watery. No plans to...

Dark interior needs updating and cleaning. Food was affordable. Some dishes were great while others were just average. Small menu.

My husband and I were visiting Hot Springs to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. On our 2nd night we went to Sam Sneads. Our initial greeting was less than welcoming. No smiles, no warmth. Hostess led us through the tavern, up the stairs and out on the patio whete we were the only ones there. It felt like they wanted... More

This restaurant is a favorite of ours, it's low key, but has tons of personality. This is our 2nd time to to Sam Snead's. The food has been great. If you love pub food, you'd love this.

Stopped in hoping to get something good after a long days fly fishing ... What I got was just so so. Wedge salad was supposed to be dressed up with some extras and it came pretty much 1/4 head of lettuce and some funky Russian dressing. No blue cheese crumbles or bacon pieces. Beer was cold (this is positive), Irish... More
