We travel to High Springs once a year and we always look forward to lunch or dinner at The Great Outdoors. The first thing that turned me off this time though was when I asked what Atlantic white fish was used in their pretzel crusted fish sandwich, I was told it was Swai. That totally grossed me out. Not only is that NOT an Atlantic fish like the menu states, it is freshwater and an inferior - mushy product. I brought this to their attention and I hope they correct it. As to the rest of our meal... The fried green tomatoes with cheese grits were the highlight. They were perfectly cooked and delicious. The tuxedo tuna had a big portion, but it was full of sinew and sliced very thick. It also did not seem as fresh as it should have been. I had the seafood "platter" which had three scallops and about six shrimp. They were tasty, but I felt a little robbed considering the $16.99 price tag. There were also a yucky bowl of cole slaw, two onion rings and a tiny pile of fries that were lukewarm at best. My husband had the Ruben sandwich which he said was good. Our server David was very good and we enjoyed the service very much. The bottom line is that they have been really good in the past and we will give them another try, but I hope they clean up their act.
