The chef is really trying to please. Good ingredients and always fresh. They should, however, avoid the store bought pastries. They are disappointing. The omelettes are devine.

The Golf and River Club was the perfect setting for my daughter's wedding reception. We played golf the day before and enjoyed the well manicured fairways and Florida wildlife.

This course is always in good shape, great layout, and if you hit them fairly stright you won't get into too much trouble. Very nice resturant and bar. It's a shame it's not open to the public in season.

We have rented a home here for the past 4 years and love it. A well managed gated community with all the amenities you could want. Great walking and bike riding on the campus and a short ride to the Downtown Venice and the beaches yet very rural Audubon rated setting. 20 minutes to Siesta Key and only a bit... More
