Went off reviews from here, and I am actually disappointed. All the raves, and goodness, is not all there.

Was looking for a steakhouse and stumbled upon this gem. The menu took some time to go through. Everything sounded amazing, and the filet and Key Lime Pie were worth the wait.

The waitress was very friendly and attentive. We went with friends and everyone got something different. Everyone also agreed that it was delicious. I had the spinach salad with shrimp, my... More

The best and most unusual food in Citrus County. I know it as the Bistro but is is the Mcleod house Bistro. My friend from California said that the lunches they serve would be 2-3 times more expensive in California.

Delicious fare, lovely cozy ambiance, nice guitar music! This is our favorite venue in citrus County. They are always accommodating and charming. The chef and his wife are quite special. We go here whenever we can for lunch, dinner or special occasions.

Food is good, good presentation, atmosphere is quaint. Should make sure you know the prices of any "specials" offered.
