This restaurant has changed hands over the years but I have to say that the current owner has done it right. They are open for breakfast, lunch & dinner daily and offer indoor and outdoor seating on their large wrap-around porch. The restaurant is clean, the staff is friendly and the food is good & plentiful. We eat lunch here on a regular basis and enjoy the daily specials that all come with a cup of their homemade soup. Each day the soup varieties change with about four or five to choose from each day. My favorites are the Greek Lemon-Chicken, Potato & Clam Chowder. Their menu has just about anything you could want and the servers make sure that you have an enjoyable experience. Don't leave without trying one of their cakes or pies. You won't be disappointed.

Next to the restaurant is their small but lively lounge that also offers outdoor seating. They offer a full service bar with food available, nightly specials and music entertainment. Worth checking out.

We stayed at the Kenilworth Lodge for three days, and rather than ramble around Sebring, we chose to walk next door to the Palm Diner (previously Lakeview Restaurant & Lounge). The first day was with a large group. On the second day, it was just the two of us. On the third day, the owner recognized us and came over to greet us. He was closely followed by the waitress who had served us the day before. She, too, remembered us, and actually remembered what she had served.

It is clear from the interactions that occur in the restaurant that the owner and staff have a lot of regular customers.

The restaurant is very warm and personal. The menu is varied and there are a number of pleasantly different offerings (such as the crab stuffed mushroom appetizer), and the quality is good. And it's inexpensive! It's a pleasant and safe change of pace from the franchise restaurants further out of town.

The new owners have kept some of the best on the menu. Sandwiches are large. Had liver & onions with mashed&gravy. Liver was very tender not like a lot of places. Serving was more than adequate. Nearby patrons complained of no chicken with their dumplings.

My husband I have recently retired to sebring florida. We like the restaurants in the area, but our favorite is the Palm Diner and Back alley Bar & Grill. I am on a special diet, but I can always find healthy choices. They serve great food, at decent prices. The portion is also very large. If you are a small eater, be prepared to ask for a take home box. breakfast at $1.99 gets you 2 eggs anyway you like it, toast and home fries. (best home fries and pancakes in sebring. They make great soups, My favorites, the Ham & bean, lentil, and split pea. My husband likes the Maryland crab soup. His favorite dish, the chicken parmesan. they have a large menu of items.The staff is friendly and attentive. You have to visit the Back Alley and Grill. Manic Monday: $1 tacos, $4 Burger, $5 gyros. Tuesday is Ladies nite: $1 drafts-$2 wine -2 for 1 Margaritas. Wdnesday: 45 cents wings all day. THURS: Karaoke: FRI: $5 FISH A& chips,(LIVE MUSIC. Island Night: Burger & Beer $5. wings 45 cts.
