I went here with 6 friends. The staff found a table for us very quickly out on the patio. We were sitting near the live music but then moved as it was very loud and we wanted to be able to talk. The service was average. It did take awhile for our order to be taken but everything else was... More

You will not be disappointed ordering anything from their fresh and changing menu. The Chef is so accommodating and owners are amazing. My friend introduced me to this local gem last year and just love this place got lunch or dinner!

The food was great! You can tell it's made in house. So fresh and great environment. Great drink selections and live music. Can't wait to try it again.

I went with my family when we were in Debary and we all enjoyed it. The prices were decent for the portions we received, the 3 man New Orleans style music was wonderful and even though we sat outside traffic was not an issue at all. GO, try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

My wife and I were visiting her parents who live in DeBary Florida. We suggested getting some lunch and they suggested the Genuine Bistro & Lounge. We had eaten there once before, over a year ago. At that time our experience wasn't great but we thought we'd give it another try. We ate outside under the covered patio. It was... More

Went in for a simple cheeseburger to go. Barmaid sense of humor no to go food today. Was in a rush, humor not on mind. Real complicated; cut burger in half, extra ketchup, nothing else. Got mayo, mustard, no ketchup. Only 4 people in entire place. McDonald's is better than this "gourmet" joint.

Genuine Bisto offers a wide variety of American food featuring great variations of fish, poultry and meats. Daily specials offered from the freshest selections the market has to offer and the live music on the weekends can be locals or solo acts of touring bands. Personally, I really like the steaks

I had dinner for the first time on a Thursday nite. Karaoke was happening outside on the patio & it was busy with all the singers. I had the appetizer tempera asparagus, good, the ahi tuna appetizer with a salad and both were good. My husband ordered a steak, the ribeye, which was Ok. The steak was a little overcooked.... More
