We came into town to meet up with family for my mother's funeral. We wanted a place to meet and sit and visit over a meal after the service, so I called Renee's Courthouse Caffe'. They were wonderful from the get-go. They were kind, accommodating, and efficient. The food was fabulous- fresh with a great variety to choose from! The... More

Today was my first visit here after living in Jacksonville for many years now. Our waiter was great, but they obviously needed more employees today. Our order was only a burger, salad, and pb and j sandwich. From the time we walked in to when we were served lunch was over 45 mins. I want to try it again, because... More

If you are in Jacksonville for one of the holidays that Renee's does a brunch for, DON'T MISS IT! Make sure you have her award wining Apple Pie. My favorite soup is the Tomato Chicken or Cream of Mushroom.

Renee is known for having great lunch and catering but I think many people still don't know about the dinner service. We love to go for dinner because the food is good, it is not too noisy, like many other places. Currently they are only open the 1st 2 Fridays each month, maybe that will change if word gets out.

The Courthouse Caffe is a terrific, local restaurant, which is refreshing in a town like Jacksonville. I'm not from the area and was trying to plan a 50th anniversary party for my in-laws and came across the Courthouse Caffe, and I'm so glad I did! In a place that is littered with chain restaurants, the Courthouse is a local establishment... More

Don't miss the experience of eating at downtown Jacksonville's Courthouse Cafe! Not being from Jacksonville, I found it while exploring, and don't want to keep it a secret for newcomers. I tried it for breakfast and was able to get gluten free pancakes, and realized also that they had more gluten free options for lunch and dinner to help with... More

Returned for a lunch with a friend and found the same tired menu. Service is somewhat improved but wait staff unfriendly with no polish whatsoever. Owner comes out to speak to only some tables. Food is good but will take out next time.

Beth, I do hope you have returned since our new menu has debuted. We did need to make changes and have finally done so. It is difficult to come up with new menu selections while using the "court theme" around here, but we have done it. Please come back again with the Ladies, and have some new items. More

Although I have lived in the area for years I just came across this find. I had heard great thing's from people, but never knew where it was. I finally tried it for lunch and I was amazed! The service and food were great!

Went to this restaurant to have a "non-chain" experience. It's only open a couple nights per month fyi. Anyway, it was decent. I got a chicken plate and it was kind of rubbery; I couldn't finish it because it was creeping me out. No real reason to go back. Service was good though.
