Warmly welcomed by the receptionist. Lacey, the server did a good job. Unfortunately, then the food arrived. First, the outsourced frozen pot stickers were very flavorful. That flavor was not at all enhanced by the syrup-like sweetness of the dipping sauce. The fish of the...Fish and chips offering was coated in a bland and chewy breading that almost required a knife to cut. The Cole slaw was VILE. Very disappointing experience.More

We went for the "Burger/Beer" Special. I wanted nothing on my Burger, and I always say to the server "just the Burger & the Bun" and I've ordered it that way for many years. What comes out...just the Burger on a plate all by itself...and...that took nearly 40 minutes to get. When I asked for a bun, you would think I was asking for gold with the look I got. Then, try to get a bottle of ketchup. They were not crowded, so I honestly don't understand that type of wait when that is what nearly everyone around us was ordering. Twice, they came to our table to deliver someone elses food - - so that could be the answer. My husbands food was hot, mine was luke warm at best. The burger were pretty good, except for that bun - - it was falling apart (so I was now rethinking why I asked for the bun) - - which I am noticing is happening at most of the FMK restaurants. We need to step up the Buns at these restaurants...how about a brioche or pretzel bun. I would definitely pay extra for that. We were finished with our food by the time the waitress came over to ask if "everything came out OK" (she didn't serve food, only took orders) - - so service here seems to be an issue too.More

Took 30 minutes to place order even though 1/2 empty at 4:30. Had group of 8. Butter fish good. Burgers nothing special. Shrimp salad plane. Quesadilla ok. If go, try fish. Allow lots and lots of time

An hour wait to be served. The steak had nerve not fat and it was not cooked to order. Went with a group for a celebration and will not return. I rather have a fried egg at home. Not to be antisocial we continue to...try the sorry excuses for restaurants in the villages The waitress was good not her fault. The only couple of good meals we had in this area were outside The Villages.More

Atmosphere was great and happy hour drinks were good. However, I had the worst mussels I ever had in my life. They were not meaty and not seasoned at all. Just steamed it what I guess was plain water and served with a little cold...chopped tomato on top. My husband ordered the chicken wrap and what little chicken he could find was again bland, not seasoned. He felt wrap was 90% spinach which is not one of his favorites. Was our first time there and rushing to return.More

We chose this restaurant for a get-together with special friends on Friday evening, 09/25/20. We arrived promptly for our 4:00pm reservation, and were seated immediately. Our Server was Ms. Royal, who was Excellent. I ordered the Pot Roast and a dinner salad. My meal was...fantastic. The ladies both ordered Pecan Crusted Salmon, and a dinner salad; their meals were Very Good, but not Great. Our other friend ordered the Stir Fry and a dinner salad, and he devoured every piece. The Pot Roast and Salad came to $14.99; the Encrusted Salmon and Salad totaled $17.95. The restaurant has a Happy Hour, so two Yuengling Drafts cost only $2.50 each. Our total bill for my wife and I was $40.60, and we left an $8.00 tip. We will definitely be back again.More

11 of us visited. We arrived right at 6:00 pm with no reservations and were seated within a minute or two. Four people ordered the butterfish and said it was outstanding. Three ordered the fish sandwich with coleslaw and said it was delicious. One ordered...the turkey burger which they said was very juicy. I ordered the chicken wings appetizer with Barbeque sauce which came With 10 large chicken drum sticks and wings. More that I expected. They were fabulous. Very Juicy and tender. One ordered Chili which was very good and another ordered a haddock dinner which they said was good. The service was a bit slow because there was music and dancing outside in the breezeway and they were extremely busy. We were inside. Our waitress kept coming and refilling our drinks and kept us apprised of where we were in the delivery que. we were all very happy with service and food. Definitely will returnMore

This course has enough elevation changes and interesting holes to make it a want to play. What ruins it and ALL of the other courses in The Villages are the people playing them. This is a very large retirement community with an incredible number of...people taking up golf for the first time, or are seasonal golf snowbirds from Jan. 1 through April 30. They have no concept of ready golf, standing like fools while one person hits, show an ignorance or unwillingness to repair one's ball mark or rake a sand trap. The "ambassadors", what one would call a marshal, are limited by the owners in correcting any of this. This results in wonderful courses ruined by the people playing them.More

Bonifay is such a beautiful country club and we have been there many times. Unfortunately, today was not a good visit. Service was minimal. We were not welcomed as we entered, once taken to a table our server came up and said "what do you...want to drink"- no introduction or explanation about food choices or drink choices. At the buffet, the oatmeal was a solid rock after having to ask for bowls, waffle to order was nearly burnt and the fruit that use to be displayed like a work of art was picked over and just fair. Water glasses were not refilled when asked but plates were whisked away with the comment "I'll take all your plates your done with." It is our hope that this was an off day for service and food quality but not sure we'll give it another chance with so many other breakfast options.More

I think children that age will enjoy Bonifay. Bright and cheery, beach decor. Enough menu choices that they will recognize. Dishes not overly seasoned, not gourmet, good tasting comfort food.
