Needs to decide whether it wants to be expensive and great food or just expensive. Service was so-so and food was not-so. But it was on the expensive side which we did not expect. Should have noticed the lack of customers when we walked in but we tried it just the same.. May go back if they can get it... More

Came here during a "swim with the manatees" vacation. It's a lovely old south home, cypress paneled walls and other decorations. Food was excellent as was the service. Too cold for outdoor porch dining tonight, but looks like that would be wonderful in this off the beaten path location.

Visiting family in Hernando and wanted to treat them to a nice dinner out. We picked Vintage on Fifth for the unique building and high rated reviews. The whole experience exceeded our expectations! Starting with Mike our waiter, he was super attentive and helpful in making suggestions. Deciding to share 2 dishes, we tried the macaroni & goat cheese with... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Crystal River. Comfortable and classic decor are the backdrop to an excellent meal. The menu is well-prepared with fresh ingredients...perfect mix of contemporary fare with classic culinary choices. Staff is great without being pretentious. Great wine selection.

The staff are superb, the location lively and characterful (we ate at the bar, which was ideal), drinks selection magnificent and the food.... out of this world! I... More

Went for dinner on our anniversary with my parents. Pretty reasonable prices for such a beautiful restaurant. You can dress casual even though it is a beautiful vintage house. Neat food choices.

One of our favorite restaurants in the county. Consistent quality and service. Reserved for special occasions since it is above average in price but worth it.

We had dinner here with two other couples and the hostess seated us in a separate dining room from the main building. With one exception, everything from our appetizers to desserts was excellent. However, the place smelled of mold. The one exception, food-wise, was our daughter-in-law ordered her steak medium-well and it came medium-rare. We understand this is a common... More
