We stopped here for lunch purely by chance and came back 5 days later to have another few meals and spend the night. Good food, some familiar standbys and some intriguing new tastes. The services is friendly and warm, the portions very generous!.
Antiques, a fascinating old bar, and other 'collectibles' make the dining room an interesting place to sit while your food is being prepared.
Old pictures on the walls give an idea of the history of the area and the hotel - Al Capone stayed here. We'll go back again when we pass through.
I had to pick one meal below, but we sampled their breakfast, lunch and dinner. Each time we entered the restaurant we had good food, prepared to order, friendly service and enjoyed the time there!

We stayed in Homestead on way to the Everglades and really struggled to find somewhere to cater for 7 people at 9.30 at night. They welcomed us with open arms, provided freshly cooked home food a day had the best selection of beers. It was the best meal we had on the whole 2 week holiday. Thank you.

Went there for a breafast meeting, and was delighted on how well the home fried potatoes were prepared., as well as the bacon....The bacon was made the old fashioned way, not the way most places make these days, in the microwave, makes it look like plastic. At any rate, I enjoyed the breakfast as well as the company.

This was our first visit. So glad we came. The place is so inviting. The food was so yummy. We loved just sitting there and chatting with owners after our meal. We will be back again.

Just had some amazing mozzarella sticks and a nice glass of wine after a crazy day in the office. Highly recommend if you looking for a quite place to get away to. Owners are cool to will probably have a drink with you. Ask for Michelle at the bar she'll hook you up and take care of you during your visit. As far as food the last I was here the chicken and dumplings where on point...And they where on point today.
