Cocktails and the perfect pour of Guinness. But food was a huge disappointment! I ordered the chicken pot pie....I got a soup made out of chicken broth, not eve. Cream of chicken, and no bottom crust, just a little pastry on the top. I could have lived with that, but the soup in the bottom was so runny, was in... More

My husband and I choose Sam Sneads restaurant to eat, it was okay. The waitress was horrible, she defiantly made our experience worse.

Don't let the name kid you, this place is a part of The Home stead and reflective of their culture: nice setup, over priced, mixed wait staff.

Stopped here for dinner and needed a gluten free meal. The chef personnally saw us and prepared a gluten free meal that was outstanding even though they do not have a GF menu. The service was timely and courteous.

Maybe I was not that hungry but food was just average. My husband thought the same thing. He had the Shepard's Pie and I had just a salad.

We had dinner at Sam Snead's Tavern. A MUST HAVE appetizer is the 'Irish Nachos" they were amazing. We had the beignets for dessert and they were a disappointment. We would definitely go back!
