A nice place to visit and have a drink

Loved the bar and music but didn't have the food. Enjoyed the people and conversations. Great story how the bar recieved its name. Will go back and try the food.

Our second trip to Neon Leons and we all had a great time! Food was good and the entertainment was awesome. Great place to eat when in Homossassa.

First time to Neon Leon's, had a great night of food and fun! Johnny Shelton from America's Got Talent was providing great music for us. Solid service and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely come again on future scalloping trips. Calypso chicken and gumbo were delicious.

My family and friends have been going to Neon Leon's for years during our annual scalloping trip. I usually get the gumbo or jambalaya and I am usually not disappointed. Last year the gumbo was not as good as usual so this year when I saw the new menu and it had shrimp creole and grits, I knew that is... More

I've always been a fan of Neon Leon's and have written glowing reviews in the past, but I just get the feeling that things are not quite as good as they used to be. My wife and I went there tonight after an absence of a couple of months or so and the first thing we noticed was the menu... More

It's correct that we removed a couple items from our menu such as liver and stuffed peppers. We are cajun, steaks, and seafood. We have six pages of food selections and felt those items didn't fit our theme. We then added at least 8 new features which means we expanded the menu. It is not smaller. We then REDUCED almost...

We've been visiting this restaurant since it opened. We've watched this establishment go from a few people visiting to now, needing a reservation in order to assure a seat when you visit. In all the times we've visited, the atmosphere has been acceptable. We bring our young granddaughter and we've NEVER encountered a hostile environment. We love the entertainment and... More

The Neon Leons everyone knew is LONG Gone! I am not being dramatic when I say it was the worst experience we've ever had dining anywhere. The Mitch owner literally screamed obscenities out loud to his female employees. Then this mouthly little man got angry with us when we told him to calm down a little bit. Next he was... More

What's funny is that our former business partner left and opened a cajun restaurant just a few miles away and relies on friends to post reviews like this to try and negate what Mitch built. There is not a shred of truth in this review. Read on with reviews from others who have seen otherwise. TA allows businesses to respond... More

Stopped for lunch with group of 6 this weekend. Owner/manager, or whatever he is, started walking through restaurant yelling and cursing at staff & everyone there. We were on vacation and shocked that any business owner would carry on that way. We had just finished our food when he started his tirade, or we would have walked out. Never ever... More

It is ironic and humourous to read some people's reviews which obviously demonstrate selective memory and ignorance to the facts. This particular party was served by an extremely incompetent employee who was being granted grace day after day to even continue employment. Let's review....."he started walking through and screaming and yelling"....trying to imply it was for no reason. Their server... More

Was there yesterday, the owner had a melt down over an employee who apparently needed to be fired. Problem was the owner publicly ripped this employee up and down, including profanity, and was screaming in front of patrons including children. When a patron tried to defend the wait staff being fired, the owner lost it with the patron as well.... More

We had heard good reviews from our local friends, so the 4 of us went for dinner on Saturday night. The music was great, the food good, and the atmosphere fun, but it was all ruined by a nasty blonde manager who was rude to us and her staff. We had a reservation for 7:00 pm, and arrived at 6:55....

Our restaurant has required reservations for the last seven years, especially during peak times, and 7:00 on a Sat night in July is as peak as it gets. We are well experienced in having to explain this and will not promise a table for under 1 hour. This party was told before hand of this situation and the manager did... More
