Diner near the dam!

Good breakfast located near the Moss Bluff dam. A bit pricey for breakfast but the location is unique. They also have lunch items on the menu. The burgers and ruebens are good.

Whether it's a step back in time to the 70's you crave, or that old style local greasy spoon from yesteryear, or the fact that this is the only food available for miles around, The Dam Diner is likely to please.

Great place for breakfast with the biggest, fluffiest biscuits around. We have liked all the sandwiches we have tried as well. Service is always great-friendly and accommodating!

Best biscuits and gravy any where. Just get a 1/2 order unless you want to overeat badly. Great hamburgers and wings later. On a great back road for motorcycle ring in the Ocala forest.
