The food is ok nothing special. The fish and French fries. The slaw was very good. The egg plant was ok. Both meals did not seem really fresh. Almost like they may have been frozen. Service however is excellent and all the servers were wearing...masks. Most tables as people got seated and ordered their drinks the received bread. We received none and not even asked if we wanted bread. Military discounts are only offered on Wednesdays.More

We stopped in without reservation on Sunday Afternoon , 07/26/20, around 1:00pm. There were many couples at the outside tables, but we preferred the Air Conditioning. Our Server was Ms. Rachael M., who was very attentive and pleasant. We both ordered the free Mimosa, as...well as a Lemonade. I ordered their French Toast with Strawberries, which was very nice. My wife ordered her favorite breakfast meal which is Eggs Benedict; she observed that the meal was adequate, but not special. Our tab was $33.71 plus a $7.00 tip.More

Met a few other ladies here for lunch today. The sandwich menu looked awesome, so I ordered the chicken/turkey on a Croissant with lettuce, tomato, cream cheese and cranberry sauce and fruit as a side. The chicken/turkey was lunch meat; the cream cheese was negligible...as was the cranberry sauce. For a large sandwich, it should have been cut in half. It was not. The fruit was some tired looking melon and 3 pieces of pineapple. Those that had the red snapper sandwiches said they were outstanding, as well as those that had the chicken salad sandwiches. Will I return? Possibly, but I'll choose something else from the menu. There was no effort into making anything appealing to the eye.More

We had lunch around 3:00pm on 06/14/20. Our Waiter was Jonathan, who was excellent. The restaurant is still on a limited menu during the last days of the CoronaVirus, but there is still a adequate selection. I chose Spaghetti & Meatballs with Marinara Sauce, and...it was wonderful. A lot of people rave about the Fried Chicken, so that is what my wife ordered. You get very generous portion with this meal!More

We stopped in for lunch and we were greeted with smiling faces. Our service was spot on and the food as well as the prices couldn’t have been any better. I highly recommend

Husband had meatloaf, garlic mashed potato and grilled veggies. He raved about how delicious it was! I had a pizza could only eat half but it was very good. Nice outdoor seating (too noisy for us inside.)

Arrived early for 5PM reservations for 4. No problem, able to take advantage of Happy Hour. Total time worked fine for 7 o’clock show at The Studio. Too windy and noisy outside so we sat inside but next to side door which had more traffic...than we expected. Round of drinks took awhile, but sure if bar busy or more guests coming inside and not enough servers. Spinach artichoke dip was excellent hot and creamy just not enough grilled bread ratio wise to portion of dip when we asked for more bread we were offered soup crackers. Even we’re ordered 4 entrees no bread n butter for the table. Entrees came too quickly. Our favorites the 48 hour fried chicken and pork medallions were excellent. The fried chicken was crispy and moist, cooked through, not the least bit greasy. For me, the best in The Villages and surrounding area. String beans and Cole slaw were the perfect accompaniments. Pork medallions tasty and good presentation, portion could have been larger. One guest ordered Salmon as entree from the same section as the pork and chicken, instead she received the Smoked Salmon Fettuccini, not recommended, from the pasta section. Out guest was too embarrassed to return it and did her best to enjoy. Bought to the server’s attention when we saw the wrong order on the final bill;? she apologized for mix up but made no effort to offer any comp; we didn’t ask but that was a disappointment as her mistake.More

The place was packed - good sign! Sat at bar for dinner. Good cocktails but the menu was very good. Many specials that everyone said were outstanding.

On Christmas Day I went to brunch at Demshar's with 7 other people. The buffet was full of excellent choices. The food and service was good. We've decided to do it again next year. It is my understanding that ordinarily Sunday Brunch does not include...buffet style. However, I wouldn't mind trying it. I will go to this restaurant again to sample their menu.More

Their salads are fresh, tasty, and presented so elegantly. There are extra protein choices over the usual. I also have to mention their chili; I chose a bowl of their special recipe and while chili is one on those dishes that is unique to everyone's...individual taste, Demshar's is a big hit in my book. Distinct flavours, not spicy but super tangy, perfect texture, and a good heart lunch I would have repeatedly. It's a big 10!More
