This was one of the many restaurants we stopped at during our stay. The service and live music were great. The food was pretty good too.

Ate here for lunch and when we arrived there were very few tables. Waitress bought wrong wine and seemed confused. Food came out quick but it took waaaaaay to long for the waitress to bring our check. Burrito was not great!

The positive is the location, the turkey arugula sandwich, the Cobb salad and the wait staff. The negative is the cleanliness of the inside dining area. Tables are sticky and the salt and pepper shakers are really dirty. It seems that they must never be cleaned off. Pretty bad. I wish they would do a better job at cleaning because... More

Make sure you eat outside because there is a musty smell inside. The salt and pepper shakers must never be cleaned because they are so dirty and sticky you really only touch them once. I will say that the turkey arugula sandwich is really good. The Cobb salad is also very good. Wait staff is friendly. Prices are what I... More

This restaurant in downtown Tavares is overpriced compared to similar restaurants in the area. As a matter of fact, when I saw the menu I wanted to leave but my date said we should stay.

Quick kitchen to table delivery - less than 10 minutes. had the pulled pork sandwiches. but mine was on a plate and my son's stuffed in... More

Been a few times and enjoyed each time. Happy hour is great and you can always get a drink to go to enjoy while walking around the lake!! Fried pickles are delicious as are most of the other appetizers. Great burger selection and they have a nice staff. Seems like there is also a stage for live music too!

We waited a long time for service....I was hunting for a menu at sidebar when a server finally appeared. Our table had Mahi fish tacos, Ruby Sliders and a Cobb salad. No complaints about the food. The service that day was mostly non-existent.

Nice restaurant in the heart of downtown Tavares. Interesting building, good food, outside seating for 4-legged friends.
