Wow! Who would of thunk it? A 4 plus star restaurant in the middle of BFE? Seriously when we saw it was rated # 1 in the area we thought so What? it is competing with Fast food and C-stores for food! The reality is that this place could hold its own in Miami, Tampa, Orlando, or any other metro city you want to name. Dont let the outside or the inside fool you. Its about the food not the fancy! We started with fried pickles as an appetizer. these were spears with a crazy good cajun dressing on them Crisp, spicy and well drained not greasy. I had a homemade tomato bisque that was the best I have ever had. It was sweet, full of fresh large chunks of tomato and light. Lots of complex flavors Awesome! We had a fantastic server that was pleasant, polite and on the ball, Glasses never empty, dirty plates never lingered and she was just evident enough to make sure we were happy without hovering. A great server in any restaurant. One of us had a Caesar salad with shrimp. the salad was fresh with large breaded shrimp. The other had grilled pork chops, these were lean and grilled on on open flame. Tender, juicy and cooked like a good piece of steak should be with a hint of pink showing. nice
We had a piece of pecan pie for desert, it was just fair and not homemade. The server told us the cobblers are homemade and we will try that next time. The restaurant is medium to relatively expensive with some special entrees bumping up against $30.00 per plate. I would not be afraid to go back and spend that kind of money now that I have experienced their quality. This is a place worth making a trip for or diverting on your way back from Orlando or North Florida if headed south. In reading a couple of reviews here, let me say it aint pretty! If you are looking for fancy stay in Orlando. If you are more interested in food quality that a fluffy atmosphere, this is the place for you.
