OK, you have to pay $ 6.00 to enter the state park (fee required in all state parks) and you can expect a 18% gratuity added to your bill...now that those items are out of the way, on with my review. My wife and I had not been here in about 15 years and a antique car club we belong... More

Nestled inside a beautiful Florida state park ($6 admission) with freshwater spring fed pool, hiking trails, pavilions, playground, canoe rentals, eco-boat tour and gigantic ancient Spanish moss draped oaks. The old Spanish mill was actually a sugar mill before being destroyed by Union soldiers during a raid. Walls and equipment still survive. The restaurant - oh yea, I'm reviewing the... More

We were camping with our Girl Scout troop in Blue Springs State Park and went to Deleon Springs for breakfast at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill and it was worth the wait! They take reservations, but could not take one for us, since it was last minute. However, with a party of 12 on a Saturday morning (during a historical... More

Located inside DeLeon Springs State Park, this is one of the best and unique restaurants in the country. I mean how many restaurants can you go to where you can make your own breakfast or lunch on a griddle in the middle of your own table. We ordered the all you can eat pancakes which are only about 6 dollars.... More

We went on a weekend, so I knew it would be a long wait (it always is 2-21/2 hours), but we waited 3. Still fine as there is a lot of outdoorsy things to do and we were prepared to swim. We were finally seated and the waitress seemed like she was just "over it". She explained everything without any... More

These are the best pancakes I have had in years. I am a pancake snob too. Kids will thoroughly enjoy making them own pancakes at the table. Word of caution....they automatically add 18% gratuity to your bill and they don't mention that fact to you. There were only two of us. My spouse paid the bill at the register and... More

We arrived to find a 3 hour wait. Three hours to sit in a hot cramped room and cook your own pancakes is not how I wanted to spend my entire Sunday afternoon. The food is fine, nothing exceptional. It can get expensive very quickly. The basic cost is $4.95. Each side (fruit, peanut butter, chocolate chips) to put in... More

If you like pancakes then this is the place for you! You cook your own on a hot plate set into the table. Good food and plenty of activity around the lakes and country park.

What more fun can there be than to make your own breakfast at your table! Each time we go, we enjoy it all the more. During the colder time of the year the fireplace is very enjoyable. The service is very good, and you are never rushed. At times the wait for a table can be very long, but it's... More

My daughter-in-law knows that we are big breakfast eaters when away from home so decided to surprise us with something new. We piled the whole crowd into two little cars and headed South from Jacksonville, FL. I had no idea where we were going, but just followed my son. Almost 2 hours and over 100 miles later we arrived at... More
