Well there's a lot of southern style restaurants in Florida, but this literally takes the cake. You must check out the cakes! They're gorgeous to look at, as well as one of the best cakes I've ever ate. Every inch of this little place is charming from the decor to entree names. I mean a hunk of chocolate cake is... More

My friends took me here for my birthday lunch. Salads were large and tasty with wonderful fresh fruit on mine and the chocolate cake was WONDEFUL! I love this place so much we are going back for dinner on Friday with other friends.

I have been to this restaurant four times and each time it gets better. My personal favorite is the Whistle Stop sandwich which is a BLT with fried green tomatoes served with a remoulade dressing on the side. The best part of the meal are the desserts. I have had a taste of quite a few, but my favorite is... More

A recent article was published noting the "best" restaurant in each of Florida's counties.....this restaurant was listed as the best for Sumnter County, so we decided instead of stopping along the highway for inferior food we would head for this spot........Wow, it was delicious......great choice of southern favs.....and we were seated next to the extensive dessert display......the cakes and pies...

We had heard great things and were encouraged to try the Southern Cotilliion. Our Pastor was visiting, so we made reservations. We were greeted and seated by a delightful hostess. The restaurant only seats 48 guests so reservations are a smart way to go. The food and service was outstanding. I had the catfish and cheesy grits which I had... More

A MUST visit for anyone in the area. Superior service topped by flawless dishes made for a memorable date night. Fried green tomatoes were incredible...corn bread - OMG...pork loin and fried chicken. Incredible. And the desserts...?! I think that's when I told the waitress that I "hated" her. LOL! Nutta Butta pie is not for the faint of heart -... More

You wouldn't know it based on the surrounding neighborhood, but this cafe is so charming inside you don't want to leave. Antiques, lovingly collected by the owner, are displayed and in use here. Mismatched china, silverware and gorgeous tablecloths under glass add to the charm. The service is excellent...the wait staff is bustling all the time. Southern fare of fried... More

Sorry but we did not enjoy our experience. The food was just average and nothing great. Our friends said the grits were good but not to my liking! Won' t go back!
