A "must-go-to-place" of you're in the area

We have patronized this restaurant for years. I have always been able to recommend the ribs, catfish, chicken fried steak and hamburgers wholeheartedly. However, the last few times we have visited have been a disappointment as far as both food and service. Guess all good things don't last forever.

My co-workers love the homestyle cooking, I was not as impressed. The BBQ was dry and overdone. I should have took my co-workers advice and went with the burger.

My wife and I went there with the rest of the family. I had chicken fried steak. She had a bbq potato. The portions were awesome. My food was good but not great. I didn't like my wife's bbq potato but she did. The service was poor. Overall, this place is average. I probably wouldn't go back unless someone took... More

I like absolutely everything on the menu. Ribs are heavenly. Desserts are perfect. Service can be a bit uneven - but mostly adequate to good.

Florida's Kitchen is not at all fancy but the food is very good. The ribs at Florida's tend to sell out most days because they are so good. Her desserts are freshly made and delicious. It is well worth a stop at Florida's

The best ribs and catfish around. The decor is rather shabby, but who cares when the food is excellent. People come from all over to sample the ribs. You won't be sorry.

Well I wish I could write a bad review so it wouldn't be so crowded all the time. Florida's isn't known for its decor, nor it's fast service. No the tables and chairs don't match and I didn't come for their salads or croutons. The fried catfish and ribs is why you come to Florida's plain and simple. You Yankees... More
