Today we had our third or fourth visit to the Great Outdoors Restaurant. Usually, I expect a follow up visit to be less of an experience than the first visit, but that was not at all the case at the Great Outdoors. We ordered the Prince Edward Island mussels as an appetizer with the Arrabita sauce. Wow! It was delicious.... More

I have to give my experience today 5 stars because there is nothing that could have been improved. All three in the family were just blown away and I think that is hard to do anywhere! We ordered the coconut shrimp appetizer, The Captains Platter, The Hook Line & Sinker and the grilled cheese for lunch. For dessert we had... More

We were recommended the Great Outdoors by the kind folks at Ginny springs. I would highly recommend sitting on the patio. A spectacular ambiance with great food. I had the Chicken Asparagus flavorful dish with awesome light butter sauce. We had the blue cheese chips as an appetizer a tasty choice as well. And to finish off the evening a... More

To start with, our server, Carly was terrific! Her suggestions were spot on, and she really knows the menu. I had the chicken oscar, cooked perfectly with just the right amount of crab in a sauce that complemented the dish well. Wifey had the "chop chop" salad which seemed to have half a seared tuna on top. It was huge... More

We were just traveling through on our way home from Tallahassee to Tampa and stumbled onto this restuarant in High Springs for lunch on a Sunday afternoon...what a treat! The three of us tried everything from appetizers to desserts and weren't disappointed with anything. My calamari appetizer was one of the best I've had, soft, crisp and not chewy. Bring... More
