Ordered a grill fired thin crust pepperoni pizza, Recieved an over cooked, grilled fired pepperoni pizza. I've had better frozen pizzas than this. Come on folks, you have a nice fired grill. Who is ever working the shift needs to do better!

going back and forth because i normally do not write reviews, but the experience at this restaurant deserves one . the host they have at the front door was so dismissive and seemed to not even want to be there as well as pushy to...where we sat even tho place was slow . we sat in larger booths close to kitchen and were greeted right away by our server that was very pleasant and helpful when told we had never been in before . we ordered what she suggested, penne with sausage that was quite good, the dessert apple tostadas was amazing and we got ready to leave full and happy ….until we overheard what seemed to be just loud conversation from kitchen area until it began vulgar and rude , calling people names and putting staff down. i am unsure of what was actually going on but i do know , it ruined our visit there and the enjoyable food we had just eaten, whom ever finds it ok to speak to others that way should never work in publicMore

what a waste of time and money!!!! service was the worst we have ever had in the villages , the food was cold and what wasnt was to salty . the young lady that waited on us had an attitude that we were even there...in the first place, the ladys at the host stand were laughing and joking so loud we should have been part of their conversation! we went even tho what we had heard was less than appealing and should have listened , i do not recommend this place at allMore

Do not go here to eat. You will be disappointed. We went on Sunday, St. Patricks Day. I specifically wanted the special that day. Corned beef and cabbage. It was 4:30 and there should have been plenty but I was shocked at the plate I...received. Two of the pieces of corned beef had more gristle than beef. I had a tiny, I mean tiny, serving of cabbage and carrots. Both cheap vegetables so why skimp. Meal was barely lukewarm as was my companions. Part of the problem is they have food runners delivering your meals not the waitress who takes the order and receives the tip. She should take ownership of what is served on. Your behalf. Terrible meal. I did send it back against my better judgement but they didn’t add more Vegetables and the meal was even colder.More

Haven’t been here in many years, but we had an early dinner before attending a concert nearby. Lovely weather to sit outside and our server was very good at getting our orders. I had one of the Pinot Grigio wines: excellent!!! I love Reuben sandwiches...and this one was outstanding!!!! Best in The Villages. I ordered onion rings on the side which were very good but eventually got a little soggy probably due to the humidity. My husband’s choice was the Friday special of fish fry. He was not thrilled with the batter: too heavy and tasteless. He later mentioned it to the server who said next time to request less batter on the fish. We didn’t know you could do that! If we go back we will both order the Reubens!!!!More

Cane Garden Review, The Villages Most of our golfing couples are full time residents, but yesterday we had guests and seasonal residents with us. Our scheduler always phones a day in advance to give the restaurant a heads up that 17 golfers would be stopping...in for lunch/dinner at 4 pm. He was advised that the restaurant no longer accepts a reservation so large so we would be seated at two tables for ten people each, outside. First group got there for 4 PM, next group started to arrive at 4:10 PM. Tables were full and we were acknowledged by our waitress....and we waited .......drink orders first, but those arrived in four separate trips...some from the bar, some from the fountain, and finally two of us got our glasses of water at 5:10 pm when we spoke to another waitress who delivered our waters....in the mean time a couple sat next to our group just before 5 PM , placed their orders and received their meal by 5:15 pm. One of our golfers found the manager and brought him to our tables. He assured us that the meals would be right out...after waiting an additional 30 minutes, we finally got our meals.....some orders were cold and were resubmitted, cold sides were room temperature....too long under a heat lamp, and some were burnt and never finished. Manager just did not seem to care or do anything. Just a side note....checks were given to the wrong couples and our party consisted of a retired restaurant manager and two retired executive chefs!More

I have to rate the service as A++. The kitchen needs some help. I had the chicken marsala. The sauce was very tasty but the chicken was a bit rubbery. Wife had the Salmon and it was not cooked through. Maybe it was just a...bad day as they were not overly busy but management needs to look in on the kitchen.More

We love coming to Cane for their daily special and the servers. We always ask who is on that night because they make the dining event so special . Some of our favorites are Vanessa, Ian and Bill. These people truly make the dining experience...special and having been on corporate life with many dinner meetings in some of the most high price restaurants. I have to say these three are in the top 10 of all the servers. Their attention to detail with our drinks and dinner order was top notch. Ask for these people when you go there.More

I wish I could give this restaurant a higher rating after the five times I have dined here…the servers are always nice/the location is convenient, when you dine outdoors the view is lovely…but the food is predictable and frankly it never feels clean.

I have lived here 15 years and never seen a pet at Cane Garden. Pets don’t belong in restaurants unless they are true service dogs. Just because you love your pet,doesn’t mean everyone does.
