A beautiful setting for a lunch with girlfriends with window seats overlooking the lake - an excellent start to the afternoon. However, the service was not as expected. Our server looked tired, even at 1pm, and she was not attentive. We needed to get up and go looking for additional silverware, and again to order coffee. The food was good, not great, but we decided not to stay for dessert. A little disappointing.

We both had crab of some sort for dinner and when they say lump crab they mean lump crab. The crab cakes were delicious as was the stuffed shrimp. But the crab cake was the winner. The staff was very nice and pleasant. The only issue was the dessert. We had seen on line they had homemade banana cream pie so we didn’t order an appetizer in order to get the dessert. Wouldn’t do that again. We both thought the pie was awful. It was like a pudding with no meringue just a bunch of whip cream on top. Will go back again as as the entree was excellent but would order an appetizer instead!

My wife and I went to the Rose for a nice lunch and, were seated out on the porch up against the wall in a two seater table for one. This is a practice the Rose follows on a regular basis with two people. They want the large groups not two people; suggest couples go to La Cuisine in Ocala for a nice accommodation for two.Sadden Customer M.K.

Had made reservations, and were taken almost immediately to our table.
As we waited fresh bread was put out for us. Food was plentiful, hot and delicious.
Our waitress was attentive, even though the restaurant was busy

Yet again the people at The Rose Plantation outdid themselves. The food was superb, withe chef introducing every dish, and the accompanying wines were divine, and perfectly suited to the food.
