We had been to this place several times before the redecoration and about 4 times since. They renovations were extensive and very well done. We have noticed that each time we go they fall a little more down the scale. At first we noticed the huge price hike, which made it go from a weekly/monthly visit to every few-6 months.... More

Good food and friendly service. Prices a little high for frequent visits but not bad for "splurge" night. Music is out on the patio but reservations are necessary on weekends if you want to sit out there. Managers can be snobby. Outside music does not interfere with diners eating inside.

This is a place where you can find good food, and if you are a vegetarian they have options for you. You can choose the nachos without the pork and have a not so bad vegetarian burger. There's also a Caesar salad that you can also eat without the anchovies. For those who eat everything, they have a very good... More

Like to go on Tuesday nights for their half price burgers. Always a good time and good food. We went last Easter with my mother and father and was enjoyed by all. Go there at least once a month.

This is one of my favorite places to eat but it's very difficult to get a table outside even when trying to reserve one 4 hours in advance. The bar is good though and covered.

Called the day of to let them know we would be a bit early, again, no problem. Arrived and the lady at the front was so darn rude,... More

My wife and I stopped in on a Friday afternoon to grab a quick appetizer while traveling. No, High Springs isn't on the main routes through Florida, but I grew up in Williston, Archer, and Newberry, and had cousins in Lake City, so I took the scenic route between Lake City and Williston. Anyway, the place was empty with a... More
