Love this Bistro

Love the ambience in a charming old home. The entrees are always delicious and the key lime pie is out of this world. We visit this eatery every year when we vacation in the Inverness area.

Although not the easiest restaurant to find it is worth the trouble! The atmosphere is almost like a tea house of yesteryear but the food is updated, modern and excellent. Some of the appetizers are the best I have ever had!! The service was outstanding and they were very accommodating with menu changes. While in Florida on business we ate... More

Great little place. The food and service was great. Ate on the patio overlooking a yard with 200 year old oaks with spanish moss draping off them! Beautiful.

This "Bistro" located in a charming old home has a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The cuisine is exceptional for the area. You can't go wrong here. Nice list of unusual appetizers such as baked artichokes. Many specials augment a lovely standard menu. Reservations are a must on Fridays and Saturdays. If one goes too late, some of the specials may... More

Just finished an excellent meal at the McLeod Bistro. The restaurant is situated in an older house with small rooms and a few dining tables in each. This does not lead to intimate conversations as tables are close together. However, service was pleasant and efficient, dinner entrees were superb, portions were large, and well prepared. Entrees are a la carte,... More

So OK, I've only had Chilean 3 times in my life. However, the first 2 times were pretty great but the freshness of the ingredients and the skill of the chef at McLeod were unparalleled. Cooking timed to perfection. On the menu, the description of the House salad sounds like any other 'mixed greens' based on tasteless iceberg, but no,... More

This was our first visit to McLeod House Bistro, but we will return. Considering it was one of their busiest nights, our service was outstanding and the food delicious. My husband had the duck breast and enjoyed it, I had the filet which was delicious. The atmosphere was romantic and cozy, with live music (love songs), being performed in the... More

Chef Michael is a master at preparing really delicious, fresh food in a kitchen the size of a postage stamp. The Mcleod House Bistro is in a small historic home in the tiny, backwater town of Inverness. Chef Michael, Beth his wife(at the front of the house) and his staff have elevated their restaurant to the highest standards of any... More

This restaurant is listed twice. They deserve to have all the reviews under one business. It's an awesome restaurant and should be near the top if not the top.
