OUR favorite breakfast spot in town, specializing in family recipe biscuits and gravy or potatos and gravy. Egg dishes also great. Lunch time has sandwiches, Closes early after lunch.

Be prepared to wait for a seat at one of their picnic tables-or share a seat with a stranger. Look out if you have never been before-it's cash only. Also, be careful of ordering a full order of anything! They have very large servings of...More

My son is 14 yrs old and he eats here nearly every morning before school. He loves the French toast and eggs. He is a sweet tea aficionado and says they have the absolute best tea in Punta Gorda. I like the sausage and biscuits....More

Enjoyed a very nice breakfast at the Smokehouse. A very tasty omelet. They serve great tasting coffee! Interesting fact; you dine at picknik tables, and it's common to share a table with other customers. This way, nobody leaves as a stranger.

This small restaurant is very rustic with picnic style tables and a very small dining bar area. They do carryout too. Their biscuits and gravy are probably one of their most popular dishes. True among people we know. Surprisingly, this is not a favorite of...More
