Flavor of the Week: Sam Snead’s Grille
Flavor of the Week: Sam Sneads Tavern
Here at Coastal Golfaway, golf and eating rank as some of our favorite hobbies. While many say eating is a necessity and not a hobby, we completely disagree, we are huge admirers of the culinary arts. This past weekend we were treated to a fantastic meal at Sam Snead’s Grille located off of Highway 501, almost directly across from the Legends Golf Resort.
It all begins when you enter the front door, it is half museum half 19th hole which adds to the luster and allure of the place. You have mementos from the Country Club of Brookline, old Wilson Staff Clubs, and my favorite part about the place was the murals of famous holes from across the globe, and even pictures form all of Snead’s major victories.
Now to the food, the menu has a variety of options for all types of eaters. The attention to detail was evident from the get go, we ordered our usual round of beers, and what we loved about this first round was how cold the beers were. Nothing starts a meal off after a day in the southern heat than a nice cold beer. Chase our wing connoisseur had to try an order of the wings, a few thing she always looks for is are the wings crispy, and how good is the sauce. He left very happy with how the wings came out, very crispy and the sauce was hot, but not so hot you couldn’t enjoy the rest of your meal.
For the main course everyone decided to get a sandwich of some sort. Jerry ordered the “Country Club” which was a club sandwich, while Chase and Carl got the French Dips. Needless to say everyone left very satisfied. The portions were very generous and the meats in the sandwich were delectable. One thing I always look for is how crispy the fries are. Fries are a simple measure on how attentive the cooks are in a restaurant and they really just topped the meal off, nice and golden crispy everyone’s plates were wiped clean.
