One thing to remember when you go to Sam Snead's Tavern is that you are in a resort area that has limited options for dining. The result is that prices are fairly high for what you get. I had two glasses of wine and a plate of pasta (more on that in a bit), and my bill (with tip) was over $50.
Our server was okay, but not exceptional. (I arrived before my friends and did have a nice chat with another server and the bartender.)
The decor is somewhat dated, but it is what one might expect and is comforting in its own way.
The food was good, but for the price not such that I would rave about it - except for one thing. Of the group with which I was dining, two of us cannot have gluten. The restaurant is quick to offer gluten-free bread, which is very good. The chef will prepare several of the dishes without gluten (hence my pasta). It really was tasty, and I very much appreciated the effort that the chef and his staff made to prepare it for me. If the prices were a little lower, I probably would have given the restaurant a Very Good rating due to the chef's efforts.
So, I recommend that you try it if you have not been to Sam Snead's Tavern. Just know that your finances will be reduced a good bit when you leave - not a unique situation for the area!
