This restaurant is now closed and has been remodeled as the Dive Pub & Grub. Not sure if it's the same owners or not. Their new menu is honest - something like "cold beer, not bad food". Go for the beer and live music, not so much for the food.

Just the landscaping outside with dishes for edging along with a potpouri of odd items around the property and on the building is enough to lure one in. The inside continues the theme. The menu is varied but with emphasis on made to order. The only issue we really had was the lack of drinks available. Seems that the soda had limited selection due to being out of syrup or carbonation. I had the iced tea and it was very good. Service was provided by nearly everyone on staff. Friendly and polite and making sure we had refills when needed. Gave my son a can of coke since they ran out of the fountain version. I would return when in High Springs.

We had the weekend brunch at Mad Hatters recently. The decor and the building itself are folksy and appealing, with a few kitchen-related antiques for sale in addition to prints and lots of mottos for sale. The service was excellent, with a friendly server who came just often enough to suit our needs but not interrupt our meal. The low point was the scrambled eggs, which were seriously overcooked and dry as dust. The bacon was a bit on the overcooked side, too. We were charged extra for the eggs to have cheese added, which consisted of about a 1/8-ounce grating on the top of the eggs after they were plated. We chose the fried redskin potatoes instead of grits.

Our breakfast included one trip to the fruit and muffin bar, which consisted of overripe bananas, oatmeal, your choice of cold cereal, monkey bread (which was good but ever so slightly burned), two kinds of muffins, fresh and very yummy cantalope, and ambrosia with big maraschino cherries. They also offer a waffle bar with your choice of two kinds of waffles with chocolate chips, whipped cream, syrup, and nuts for toppings. All in all an adequate breakfast, but unless you are a fan of overcooked eggs, avoid the scrambled eggs. The Great Outdoors, just down the street, still offers the best breakfast in town, but it is very pricey in comparison
