I don't come to Leddy's at the Florida House Inn for the food--which, however, is fine. I mostly come for the location and the chance to eat in an uncrowded courtyard with wrought iron chairs that makes me feel like I'm visiting a friend who lives in a wonderful old house with balconies in Savannah. The menu is "Southern comfort food" and so it is. Fried chicken, grits, shrimp. But this time I had a perfectly good beet and citrus salad with shrimp and warm goat cheese. It wasn't fancy and the presentation on the plate was sort of average but it was just fine with a cold beer. I also came here because I wanted to step away from the tourists and eat somewhere quiet--and so I got a good lunch in a wonderful atmosphere. Interestingly, my waitress was apologetic that more people weren't there. She explained that they had been closed on Wednesdays for the past few weeks serving a big group and this was the first time they had been "back to normal." And with that, she gave me a card for a free lunch or brunch when I returned when I told her I had been coming to the island for the past 14 years! I just liked the genuine and authentic graciousness of the place--and combined with good food and a modest check, that's a pretty nice recipe for lunch any day.
