I had eaten breakfast here but wanted to try it for dinner. We had the best server, Caleb, who suggested the squash blossom appetizer. This dish had goat cheese and I don't know what else because he had me at goat. I had the scallops in garlic cream sauce. Scallops were cooked perfectly and I literally wanted to lick my... More

We live in Orlando and travel to this area just to eat here. The BEST desserts, fantastic food, generous portions and all for very reasonable prices in an old home. Very few restaurants meet our standards for flavor/price/cleanliness/location/staff/etc and this one meets them all. We love it! You MUST leave room for desserts....many awards given to them and the awards... More

Tried the fancy beachfront restaurant around the corner and was told there was at least a 90 minute wait. These guys sat us right away and we enjoyed a delightful dinner. My wife's salad, topped with a melted goat cheese wrapped in a phyllo crust was "the best I ever had". My pasta carbonara was rich with melted cheese, ham,... More

Stopped in here to watch the Jan. 2nd bowl games. They had a great crowd which created an awesome atmosphere to root on our hometown team. What's better than sitting outside for drinks and appetizers. Staff was friendly and food and drinks were great.

Used to be the "it" place to go when visiting the island. An icon, actually. But went there a few weeks ago & service was slow, food was mediocre and the wine list was minimal with most prices for a bottle near $100 or more. Asked the waiter why & he said they didn't get their delivery on time. But... More

My husband and I stopped by for desserts on NYE and I'm so happy we did. We made our own dinner, grilling steaks on the beach, but SotM took our same day reservations and surprised us with wonderful homemade desserts. I have tried key like pie so many places and this was the best, comparable to my favorite two places... More

My husband ordered American snapper in a butter caper sauce. The fish was cooked perfectly and the light sauce complimented it perfectly. He said it was the best fish he had ever had. We are from Florida and have eaten lots of fish. My rib eye steak with a teriyaki glaze was cooked as ordered and had an interesting delicious... More

We enjoyed our evening very much. Our family ( mom, dad + 3 teenage boys) were looking for a place that was a little nicer than a burger joint and decided to give it a try. We made a reservation and were seated promptly. Though our table was in the back, we still felt part of the action of the... More

Wow... had to wait a bit on a Sunday morning, but worth the wait. We had a very good breakfast. I had the stuffed creme burlee french toast and it was SO GOOD. My husband had the breakfast omlett and he really liked it. Very good
