“Good Food in an Historic Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We enjoyed eating at the Hotel - it is a beautiful hotel setting that gives a vision of old Florida grace and style.

We have the Grouper and Gulf Shrimp. Portions were generous and salad, veg's and entrées were fresh and delicious. Also, the food was very reasonably priced and the service was very good

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We had pork shank and fried chicken & both were very good. We looked out at the trees and springs through the evening mist. The wine selection is limited. We will go back soon.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

In past years, I found the food in the Lodge Dining Room to be mediocre, but during a several-day stay in June 2014, we enjoyed every meal. The food was fresh and delicious, served promptly, and the staff were all pleasant and helpful. The children's portions were large and a good value. Our favorites for breakfast: griddle cakes, ham, omelettes, oatmeal, fruit cup. Lunch and dinner (menu's the same): Wakulla Springs Greens salad with avocado; macaroni and cheese (homemade, delicious!); Cannonball Burger served sans bun, avec mashed potatoes, carmelized onions, and gravy; oyster po-boy; and the navy bean soup. Hummingbird cake is delicious but IMHO, pricey at $6.
