I'd drive out of my way to go eat here. Great home cooking. Everything cooked perfectly. Not far off the main highway but pay attention or you'll pass it up. Parking is not the best but who cares!

We heard about Florida's from a friend that used to own a lake house in Livingston. Our friend said that the ribs at Florida's were the best she's ever had. We decided to see for ourselves and were not disappointed! The ribs were fabulous and a nice feature is that they were already cut and ready to pick up and... More

In my Professional Opinion; as an Experienced Food Manager. I feel that a Hostess who gets the drinks & supplies a complimentary Bread/Cracker with Butter Basket would compliment the wait for the Great Food when its busy. And you have to save room for their Homemade Desserts.

Good food. Easy to miss because it is located out of the way and the outside looks awful. Kind of expensive considering the low overhead. We took dessert to go and they charged us for the two plastic spoons! Recommend the buttermilk pie.

Florida's is a local landmark. The ribs are excellent. Great service and excellent home made cakes and pies. Highly recommend the Italian Crème Cake. A must visit place when in Livingston.

Consistently good smoked ribs and excellent hand breaded catfish. You can not get a bad meal here. Everything is cooked fresh. Try the onion rings and Florida's Special salad too!

Food was served quickly and portions were generous. Fairly busy after Spirit Ride 2013. Enjoyable dining experience.

We wanted some catfish and BBQ since we didn't catch any on the lake so we took a look here and found this place had some good reviews with the food we wanted to eat. We got lost trying to find the place but called and they lead us right to them. When you drive up you will hesitate and... More

You might drive right past this place, huge mistake. It may be a dive but that is what it is supposed to be. I have been here twice with my wife. We have tried the catfish, the chickenn fried steak and the hamburger. All were great. I was most impressed with the burger. You need a knife and fork to... More

The BBQ ribs were wonderful and so was the catfish. The hush puppies were the best!!! The servings were huge. We'll definitely be back.
