Love this place!

My family and I visited this restaurant over the weekend and we loved it! My advice is to put your name in early, when we signed in we had a two hour wait. We swam in the springs until we were called so it was no big deal. I loved cooking our pancakes and eggs right at the table. I... read more

Great place to have a family pancake breakfast. Come prepared for a swim in De Leon Springs too. Nice place to bring the family and have a relaxing BBQ and swim outing.

We got there early on a Saturday and at 8:50am had an hour and half wait. It went quickly and it was fun to have my daughter cook pancakes for her dad on Father's Day weekend. The waitress was so nice and sweet. We had a great breakfast. The only thing I didn't like was being seated with a family... More

We loved this place. Our server was very professional and gave us a great service. She also knew about the history of the place and made the experience a fantastic one.

Traveling from St. Augustine back towards Tampa, we decided to stop at Deleon Springs State Park to eat and explore a bit. What a beautiful, well-kept state park! We ate at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill and made our own pancakes and french toast on the table top griddle. ($4.95/pp all you can eat)! It's nothing fancy, but sure was... More

I will just get in line and add mine to the litany of "excellent" reviews. We boated over from Astor on a Friday which is a story in itself. The idea was to avoid the weekend crowds which we in fact did. The springs were not crowded at all and we walked right into the restaurant and were seated immediately.... More

This restaurant is so much fun! First, it is located in DeLeon Srings State Park, which itself is a true Floridean experience. Then, the restaurant is situated in an old sugar mill. This is very family oriented. Everyone has a great time preparing food on a griddle right on the table. The food choices are limited, but very tasty. The... More

The Old Spanish Sugar Mill is a great experience to see a authentic old sugar structure. You are seated at the table and there is a hot grill in the center on the table. The waiter brings out a pitcher of several different kinds of pancake mx. You fry your own pancakes and cook your eggs. They prepare the meat... More

My family ate here in spring time when the restaurant first opened. This was a cool unique experience for the family and everyone was friendly and helpful. The kids loved being able to pour the batter onto the table and cook their breakfast themselves. We also had a cool seat overlooking the water wheel and a small stream of diverted... More
