My wife and I ate here last week during our stay in WP. (Winter Park Mountain Lodge Review seperately)

Got to say, the service was superb and consistent with the incredibly warm welcome we had wherever we went. The pizza choice is excellent, though, maybe for us in the UK, typically the portion sizes are huge!

We opted to share a 14" pie, half-half and was not disappointed. Waiting time was very comfortable, neither rushed (undercooked) or tardy. Just right.

Prices are reasonable and the drinks choice comprehensive. The guys at the table next to us had wings and a salad and 2 pizzas and there was enough to feed a family of 8 easily!.

A really good family run pub / restaurant that I would have no hesitation recommending. In fact, we went back again.

Some people have wondered about the honey on the tables. Well a view of Man v Food when Adam went to Boulder, CO for a "mountain pie" will explain everything!! :)

Gluten free options is unusual to find ( didn't taste it, but even so...top marks for effort).

Try and get there before 7pm as it is very popular, not by default (easy in WP...) but because it is so very good.

This restaurant definitely has character. We enjoyed the tables near the fireplace. It also offers a tasty gluten-free pizza...Something that isn't easy to find!

Not sure what the honey on the table is for?!? Waitress was a bit gruff, perhaps having a bad day. Enjoyed the pizza though.

Thanks for stopping in, and for leaving a review. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed our pizza—the honey is for dipping the extra crust in! I apologize if the waitress was gruff. Everyone has bad days and, unfortunately, you may have caught us on ours. With that said, I hope you’ll stop by when you're back in Winter Park—you've got to try the honey with the crust.

Warm regards,
Jeff Davidson, Owner

There is a lot of hype around this restaurant, so after many years of coming to Winter Park my family thought we'd give it a shot. We had tried to eat here in the past but the wait was always 40+ minutes. Let's just say I am very glad we had no wait this night because I've had better italian food at the mall food court. My disclaimer; no one at our table ordered pizza so maybe that was the big mistake. The kids meals were falling off the sides of what looked like a little bread plate and even the full dinner meal portions were squeezed onto a little plate. It was so odd that my 5 year old son even commented, "next time can you bring my dinner on a real plate." All of the pasta dishes were just slapped together with the pasta and sauce never really blending as a dish; the pasta was not cooked right, the chicken parm was pretty much no chicken and all cheese, the meatballs were hard and without flavor, and the garlic bread was dry and bland. We wouldn't even ever consider going back to try the pizza.

First day we arrived at Winter Park a friend recommended Hernando's and was quite a nice surprise to have such a good pizza!
Atmospere is nice and cozy, waitress friendly, and the menu with lots of good things to choose from. Children's menu has enough options, though we had to order a 10 inch pizza for my 6 yr old, as pizza was not in the kids menu. But he loved it and took home what he left at the restaurant.
We came back today, as the location was close and we enjoyed our dinner the first day we went. If you are in the area I do recommend!

Thank you for your recommendation and your review! We're pleased to hear that you've dined with us not once but twice, and that both times were enjoyable. We're especially glad that your son loved the pizza -- we know how hard it can be to keep the little ones happy. The next time you're in town, we would love to have you back!nnThanks again, nJeff Davidson, Owner
