We went on a long weekend trip to Ocala and came across the Braised Onion Restaurant. The food was fantastic! Everything from the appetizers to the main dish were exceptional. We would definitely come back next time we are in town.

All the food we had in our foursome was excellent. Portion size was generous and very tasty. Our server Donny was very efficient and meant our needs. He had a very good personality and enhanced our experience at the restaurant.

Tucked in a somewhat residential area this little gem has been serving the city for years now with absolutely stunning service and food. The bartender (Donny) is extremely talented, efficient and gregarious - ask for his suggestions as to food or drink.

I make it a point to go to the Braised Onion every time I visit Ocala and have never been disappointed. I’ve never had anything that wasn’t excellent, but my favorite thing is their shrimp and Gouda-grits, which are to-die-for! If you can, try to...More
