It's very quaint and relaxing! The service is wonderful. The food is freshly made daily! The chef knows what works for this county and has vegetarian options as well. I know for a fact that the food is fresh and prepared to cook to order. The desserts are freshly made daily. We will definitely be back. Absolutely delicious.

I enjoy the atmosphere, the ability to eat outside, and friendly staff and owners. I always order the grouper. I have never had a bad meal here.

This restaurant is quite nice for lunch. The service is great and out door seating quiet. The only problem I see is, the two times I have been there, were early Saturday nights...$30.00 and up entree served with paper napkins. Totally unacceptable.

I have been here twice for lunch, both times sitting on the outdoor porch. It is a very nice place and sitting outdoors is very pleasant. The service is quick and very pleasant. Food is very good. I have had the Reuben Sandwich twice and DW enjoys the Vegetarian Panini. This a place worth driving a little out of your... More

Great Food, Great Service, Cozy Atmoshpere. Been here 4 years and originally thought this was a "special occasion" restaurant, but now realize it is the best place to eat in Citrus County. No other restaurant is in the same league

For the price the food is not very good. I had the special of the day which was grouper and it tasted very fishy and was tuff. My wife had the chicken and she said it was tuff. Salad was not included with the meal.

I have lived in Inverness for 10 years and thought McLeod House Bistro was only open on special occasions and evenings. We took my daughter to Karma Resale and when we were leaving, asked the ladies there for a recommendation for lunch. What a great surprise. Love the quaint house, the food and service were superb.

We stayed at a b&b in Inverness for our anniversary and McLeod House Bistro was recommended as the best location for our anniversary dinner. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We opened the menus we were given and at the top of the first page was a special greeting which read: Happy 27th anniversary Mr and Mrs... More

Our family of 5 (three teenagers) visited the McLeod House Bistro for a late lunch on Saturday. It was a wonderful experience and we can't say enough great things about it. The service was professional, friendly, accommodating, and appropriately attentive. Our hats off to the chef for an incredible meal from the appetizer to dessert. We like for our kids... More
