Food was excellent. Service good as well, order at register have a seat then they deliver to your table. Didn't wait long for food or to order. Older restaurant but very clean. Off the regular path but worth the stop.

Went to lunch with friends. Several of us got the salad with brisket, sausage, and a rib on top. The salad was huge & full of meat. Delicious! There was no way to eat It all. Having seen them serving their homemade Italian Cream Cake I had to order a piece to take home. It was absolutely delicious!! I would... More

Great food, great service. Worth the drive. Catfish was great and the stuffed BBQ potato is large enough to share.

Loved this place! We started with fried pickle spears, which were on special that day and delicious. For the main course, I had ribs and fried okra. My boyfriend ordered the two meat plate with chopped beer and ribs plus baked beans and potato salad. Everything was great and the restaurant felt very homey.

The restaurant is better since the remodel, but it still tends to get a little crowded. The food is true home style and the bar-b-queen the best in town. The menu fits a variety of tastes, and the food is usually pretty good. I would not call it a barbeque restaurant for the simple fact that it has some dishes... More

From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the food inside was excellent. I very much enjoyed the par-b-q and the portion sizes. Staff was courteous and the atmosphere pleasant. A nice place nestled just out of the way.

I've eaten here a few times, Florida's is always busy...but, not busy enough to where u have a long wait. Staff is friendly. A bit pricey, food is like any other restaurant. Salads are a pretty big size.

Good food but the wait staff will sink this place if they continue with the same attitude they have. I ordered a lunch plate and wanted sweet potato fries instead of plain fries.. "Sorry no substitutes" I say its ok if there is an extra charge... Still no. So I say then just bring me an order of fries to... More

Their catfish is sooooo good!! You can tell that they take extra time in preparing their& it's fresh, it really shows! Their salads are fresh , my husband eats a salad with his dinner every time we go. Their ribs are so tender they just fall off the bone. Their Italian cheese cake is our favorite made from scratch!
