The sides were potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans or macaroni and cheese. The service was awful, took forever to get... More

Everything has improved at this restaurant since our last visit...we had excellent service from our server Erika, perfectly made drinks, yummy appetizer (Spicy Siracha Cod bites with very good tartar sauce) and excellent meals. The aesthetics of this building outside and in are appealing...it is surrounded by lush bushes, flowering plants and magnolias with huge, white flowers. There is ample... More

Nice variety of food in a very modern environment. Nice beer and wine and also variety of spirits. Our fish choices were excellent. Had the dinner for two that included appetizer and dessert. Worth doing.

Played 3 rounds there during the week of 2/15/16. Have played this course regularly for the past 4 years and have never been disappointed. Rack rate (walk-in or phone-in) is considerably higher than on-line tee times, which were easily and readily available. Replay rate is very reasonable. Course conditions are some of the best in central Florida. Greens are challenging... More

We played the 3 days up to Thanksgiving. The people at the course were all friendly, and curtsies. We teed off all 3 days on time, and never had and delays on any of our rounds. The course was in very good condition, and the greens rolled very well. There is no water haserts on the golf course. Would definitely... More

This is a lovely place and the food was good but they close really early -- don't plan a late dinner! They had plenty of parking; there was no wait. The surroundings were pretty, the staff was good and we even had the opportunity to meet the new chef--very nice.

No dislikes at all. Great staff. Very nice greeting when you arrive. Good food in the restaurant. The course was nice and wide, very little water hazards. The greens were excellent. played with 3 of us in under 3 hours.

If you are looking for a well maintained course that is relatively easy to play, wide-open and you won't lose balls, this is the course to play. Forget about a morning tee time (retirement community). The course is always wide open in the afternoon.
