Recently I was in Port St. Lucie to check out the PGA Village, and while we were there we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. Of course, it was Sam Snead's Oak Grill & Tavern - the chain named after a golfing legend. (For more on my PGA Village review, please click here.)
The restaurant not only offers lunch and dinner, but an breakfast buffet that is available from 6:30AM to 10:30AM. Diners can choose from a cheaper continental option or go for the all-out buffet that includes cook-to-order items (like omelets) and all the tasty usuals (homefries, bacon, pancakes, etc.) for a few dollars more.
We went for dinner and I was thrilled to find that there was an offer available on restaurant.com that allowed us to get a great discount. Luckily the hotel had a fantastic business center available, and I was able to hop on the computer and print out my discount in a matter of minutes! (For my review of the Hilton Garden Inn in Port St. Lucie, please click here.)
Dinner was great, from the quick seating at our arrival to the service and food. The restaurant had a great decor, and the golf memorabilia on the wall was interesting to look at. After our long day out and about (we'd had a golf lesson just earlier, you can read more about it here) my husband and I were both worried that we didn't look quite 'fancy' enough for such a spectacular-looking establishment. We found within minutes that most of the other diners there were people who had also come in from hitting the links!
One of my bigger concerns was that my toddler, who has a strong love of chicken nuggets, wouldn't want to eat the chicken strips that they had there. The problem? Real chicken, along with real breading, and sauce that didn't come in a little plastic cup. Lucky for us, he devoured it in between making our waitress laugh with his silly faces.
My husband and I decided not to splurge on one of their aged Angus steaks (we like to save that sort of thing for romantic dinners when we're alone!) and opted for sandwiches instead. I had a sliced ribeye sandwich that was tender and beautifully seasoned. My husband opted for his favorite - a patty melt - and was pleased to find that the bread was deliciously crispy despite the juicy burger sitting within.
We had an all-in-all fantastic night that completed a fantastic day.
