Met a good friend for lunch on a week day. The food was okay, but the service needs to improve. Once we received our food we didn't see the waitress again until we received our check for payment ..... no drink refills.

Throwing peanut shells on the floor reminds one of the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel in Singapore or the Palm steak joints in the Big Apple or DC but outside of that it's far different from these other joints. If you like average food, average drinks and crowded and noisy place, this is it. It's a hang out for bikers and Villagers. We went out with about fifteen couples and had a great time but you won't go there for food per se.

Two for one frozen margaritas and peanuts that you can throw the shells on the floor, next to Lake Sumter. Great service, good food.
