“This is the definition of a great dining experience.”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

We were in Crystal River to enjoy some dining and fishing. We thought it might be hard to a good dining experience in such a small town. We read the comments on trip advisor and decided to try this restaurant. Our expectations were exceeded. From the moment we walked through the door, the staff was genuinely warm and friendly. The atmosphere was so comfortable and relaxing. The food exceptional! The descriptions on the menu were so vivid, we had a really difficult time choosing. Once we made our selection, we were thoroughly pleased. I can definately see why this was voted number one in this area.
We highly recommend this spot.

“Gone to Heaven!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

From start to finish, this was one of best dining experiences we've had in a long time! The service was SUPERB! Troy was a joy to have as a server! He took care of our needs and we never needed a thing! Not only did we receive the best service possible, but it was wonderful to dine on their pet-friendly patio with such an amazing menu. Our pooch was welcomed with a fresh water bowl and a smile. Delicious grouper and beef tenderloin entrees were paired with just as an impressive wine list. To finish it off, Rodney the owner, was kind enough to stop by, say hello, pet our puppy, and ensure that our stay was enjoyable. If you visit the Crystal River area, you MUST plan a stop at "Vintage" for an amazing dining experience!

“Thank you trip advisor, another excellent restaurant found in downtown Crystal River.”
Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

We were visiting Crystal River for a swim with the Manatees tour and wanted to find a good local restaurant. Tripadvisor came through for us again. This was the #1 rated restaurant in the city, and for good reason.

I had the shrimp and grits, it was delicious, I cleaned my plate. My wife had the Mac-and-cheese, made with goat cheese. Although she couldn't finish it, the dish was so tasty she had to bring the left overs back to the hotel.

We asked if they could change the way the kids chicken strips were prepared to accommodate our son's gluten restriction, and our server made it happen with a smile.

Vintage on the Fifth won't disappoint!

“Vintage on the 5th”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Average. A lot of locals like this place but I didn't think it was anything to write home about. We didn't have reservations so we had to sit at the bar. The bartender was not very friendly and the vegetarian selection wasn't very large and my dish tasted bland. My boyfriend really loved the shrimp and grits though.

“This charming restuarant is becoming "our place"”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

My family is making Vintage on 5th our go to restuarant whenever we need a really nice out. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, Father's day... and each time it is a sheer delight. Food, service, ambiance are outstanding. A few family members are addicted to the Jerk Shrimp appetizer. I am a devoted fan of the duck main course. Wine list is not extensive but it has some interesting and unexpected names. Really -- you simply can not go wrong with this gem in Crystal River.
