“Nice restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

We ate an early dinner at Sunset Sam's on the last night we stayed at the Gaylord Palms. Because this restaurant is located in an expensive resort, expect an expensive dinner. We were able to eat right on the "sailboat" and even though there is a bit of a fish smell in the air since we were so close to the "pond" that the sailboat sat on which had real fish swimming down below it, it was a nice atmosphere in which to dine. I had the fish and chips dinner and although the fish itself was good, the coating on the fish was not good at all and left a bad taste in my mouth. The fries were fries. We ate at Sunset Sam's for the atmosphere mainly and although it was a passable dinner, I probably would not go out of my way to dine there again. Our waitress was very nice and friendly and attentive to us.

“great out of the way restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Didn't even know this restaurant existed the first time we visited the Gaylord. Glad we found it this time. Meal was excellent and so was the service. But just like everything else in this hotel there is a price. But it was nice to stay in the hotel to eat and not drive somewhere.

The service we received was very good, I've never met a server as enthusiastic and helpful as ours. The food was also very good.

“Super food, surprisingly good, fast service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Frst off, expect it to be a little overpriced. It is inside a fancy overpriced convention center hotel! So pricing is half again higher than it would be elsewhere. Getting past that, the food was really quite good. I was surprised and impressed. Would definitely eat here again. I had the grilled chicken and fries and both tasted almost like a fine dining version of itself.
Attentive servers, fast service, great food--get past the overpriced "trapped here in this hotel so dont have any options" feel and it is a good restaurant
