Vegetarian dishes available. Had the Calle Ocho slow roasted pork with carmelized onions & provolone... read more

The corned beef was freshly made and delicious but the fat should have been trimmed, My dates stawberry, orange salad w/grilled chicken was delicious.

We were staying in a local hotel for the night and this place was recommended to us. We were very pleased with the service and the food. It was late afternoon so there wasn't any dinner rush. I had the filet mignon and my husband had mahi-mahi and they were both excellent, even the side vegetables and of course, the... More

A great place to enjoy excellent food with friendly service and great entertainment! My favorite night is Friday because of the entertainment and specials, but lunch or dinner anytime is great! I encourage you to try the specials, always fresh, creative, and perfectly prepared! The menu has some solid staples that I frequently enjoy as well! Bon Appetit!!!

This is a great little place with a unique spin on dining. It has a menu with lots of variety and lfun combinations. There is always a great special to try. My husband likes the fish and chips and I especially like the BBQ.

We sat outside since it was still nice and they had the heater turned on. Out server was very nice but everything was slow in arriving. Maybe because they had two large parties inside. By the time dinner arrived, it was getting chilly. I usually find an appetizer to be adequate, so had the steak and cheese flatbreads. The taste... More

Food is OK Portions small for my liking, Plenty of seating both indoors and outdoors. Would rather hit Orange City or Sanford for more bang for the buck

Enjoyed warm Brie cheese and apples appetizer followed by mahi mahi Mauna loa and angle hair jardiniere. Both were very tasty and enjoyable. The evening was cold, rainy and windy and while we tried to join the lounge area after dinner, for drinks, etc, and enjoy the music the curtains do little to warm the lounge on a brisk and... More
