    Columbia's: a Spanish historical Classic

    by gwened Written Feb 3, 2014

    The oldest Spanish restaurant in the USA, open in 1905 in Tampa and eventually expanded to several location. It was a natural to come to Saint Augustine (the oldest city in the USA from 1565 by Spain).
    The deco is like been back in Spain, the service is very friendly ,attentive, and the food was very good. Need to updated on your visit as family tells me still is great. I used to lived about 45 minutes by car from here along the AIA coastal road.

    It is a must in Saint Augustine!

    Favorite Dish: paellas, and shrimp in garlic sauce, the wines of Spain, and great tapas dishes, and the salad 1905 are legendary and always taken.

    Billy's Tap Room and Grill: old world in Ormond

    by gwened Written Jan 28, 2014

    My favorite in town for many years where I lived in ormond by the sea for many years, and always here. too bad no photos these were the times before my travel forum addiction sorry;

    live music on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 18h to closing past midnight. Great local musicians and artists make for a wonderful weekend outing. opening of resto Tuesdays to Thursdays from 16h to 21h, Fridays to Saturdays from 16h to 22h, Sundays closed.

    full of history from their page, and it continues today after several owners but same quality.
    Billy’s Tap Room & Grill began as a Tea Room on the property of the beautiful Ormond Beach Hotel in 1922. The hotel owners asked Billy MacDonald, the lounge manager at the Astor and Plaza Hotels in New York City, to move to Ormond Beach to manage The Tea Room. In 1926, Billy purchased our current location, opening it as a drug store/soda shop/restaurant . The MacDonald’s lived in the upstairs room, which today is affectionately named “The MacDonald Room.” In 1939 the family purchased a neighboring home for $3,900, which is currently home to the Ormond Beach Historical Trust, just a few doors west of Billy’s.

    Favorite Dish: inspectors fish and chips is wonderful with a nice cold beer Sam Adams ; the jumbo crab legs, filet mignon au poivre is awesome;

    Bob Marley's A Tribute to Freedom: Bob Marley's A Tribute to Freedom

    by ArenJo Written Jan 19, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sorry excuse for Jamaican food. Worst I ever tasted. HOWEVER, it is nice to go in and check out the pictures of Bob Marley on the walls. And the gift shop is fairly priced and has some unique or hard to find items.

    Favorite Dish: NOTHING. Don't eat there.

    El Patron: The best Mexican restaurant in central Florida

    by ArenJo Written Jan 16, 2014

    The food is slightly pricey, but not horrible. There is always plenty of parking and plenty of seats. They have a large bar too if you are into that. It is close to Disney as well if you are staying near there.

    Favorite Dish: The best thing they have is cheese dip, but the chimichangas are great as well.

    Hooters: Decent Food, Great Waitresses in Tallahassee

    by Basaic Written Jan 4, 2014

    $10 as of December 2013. Most people do not come to Hooters for the food you come here to watch sports, drink beer and watch the ladies in the short orange shorts and tight t-shirts. This one was fairly typical with cute girls and mediocre food (I do like the chili though). Hours are 11 AM to 12 AM Monday through Saturday and 12 PM to 11 PM on Sunday.

    Favorite Dish: Chili with Onions and Cheese.

    Cedar River Seafood: Great Seafood in Middleburg

    by Basaic Written Jan 4, 2014

    Cedar River Seafood: $30 (for 2 adults and one child) as of December 2013. Cedar River Seafood started some 30+ years ago with a restaurant in Jacksonville next to Cedar Creek. It has expanded and now has several restaurants in different locations. The food is still well-prepared but the portions have shrunk and are a bit too small. Service (Joanie) was good.

    Favorite Dish: Lunch 2 Item Combo (Blackened fish/scallops) Portions too small.

    Portofino Waterfront Dining: Food is OK, but the view is amazing!

    by Jefie Written Nov 22, 2013

    My in-laws had had a bad experience at this place, so I didn't get my hopes up when we stopped at Portofino lunch. The reason why I still wanted to go was because the restaurant offers waterfront dining in a casual atmosphere. We took a seat on the second-floor patio overlooking Charlotte Harbor, ordered some maragaritas and daiquiris, and picked simple items from the menu (soup, salad and sandwiches). The food really wasn't that bad, except that pretty much everything was either deep fried or soaked in butter - even the mushrooms in my salad were sauteed in butter! - but the balsamic dressing was good, and so was my Italian bean soup (zuppa fagioli). So if you're looking for fine dining in a romantic atmosphere, this is NOT the place for you. However, if you're looking for light fare in a casual, Caribbean-like atmosphere, then go ahead and enjoy the view!

    Yoder's: Great spot in Amish Village, Sarasota

    by Jefie Updated Nov 21, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pinecraft is a small Amish community located in Sarasota, Florida. It is home to about 3000 Amish and Menonites, and Yoder's is its most popular restaurant - understandably so! The place is equally famous for its made-from-scratch home-cooked meals and its traditional Amish pies, which come in 33 different flavours! There was a bit of a line-up when we got there, but we didn't have to wait long. I ordered the baked chicken, which was one of the daily specials. I selected Amish potato cakes and corn cakes as my two sides. Portions were huge and everything was beyond delicious! Needless to say, I wasn't able to finish my plate and sadly I had no room left for dessert, but I worked my way around this small disappointment by bringing home a small loaf of strawberry bread. I very much enjoyed the casual and friendly atmosphere and staff of the place, and I also liked the small giftshop and Amish market located next to the restaurant.

    The Breezeway Restaurant and Bar: Great recently opened Restaurant in Sanford

    by Kert1 Written May 19, 2013

    If your in or visiting Sanford FL you are in for a treat while looking for a great restaurant to relax and enjoy a quality meal that provides the service and value of a fine dining experience.

    I found such the experience at the Breezeway Restaurant and Bar. The fare is limited compared to restaurants I have ventured into throughout the USA and several other countries but this is attributed to the sole focus of providing fresh foods to your table in a reasonable service time.

    If your looking or thinking “ I need my food fast” then go to McDonalds. GOOD FRESH FOOD TAKES TIME TO PREPARE !!

    I will limit my review on the inside dining area but will say the majority of the customer dined outside for a more causal atmosphere and the music.

    As I mentioned for sheer relaxation and quiet dining the inside was my place to be. Although the inside dining is of smaller confines it was not over-crowded with tables and had modest decor and minium table setting to not over bare the patron.

    A real joy and pleasant delight was sitting with the owner Rick and his wife Debbie talking about how the business has progressed and evolved over the short period of time, the building itself in style and heritage and the general business of running a fine restaurant.

    As we all know ... food is a matter of taste -- and having tasted food in all of but two states in the USA and 9 different counties I must say... Breezeway Restaurant and Bar will get my recommendation and continued patronage.

    Favorite Dish: I did start my dining with the a fresh house salad with the housemade blue cheese dressing. The salad contained a variety of lettuce with cucumber and a nice tasting tomato for this early season.
    The blue cheese dressing was closer to the creamy side although my preference is a medium based dressing of that nature.

    I did have my sights set for trying the blackened red snapper but since fresh fish is the key to their service I settled for the available entree called “The Johnny Fish” a blackened grouper topped with Swiss cheese and accented with their housemade marinara sauce.

    Very good taste and flavor but I feel a bit more tang to the sauce would have set the seafood dish out from among its peers. The grouper had a nice texture and no fishy taste but actual flavor of the dish.

    A side of twice baked potato was requested with the entree and other than adding a bit of salt was hot and tasty as ordered.

    The bread basket with the meal was of a non inducing quality but fit with the dish as prepared. It was stated as housemade and topped with Parmesan cheese with a hint of garlic. I must admit I enjoy my bread soft and hot.

    Nav-A-Gator Bar & Grill: Where the road ends & adventure begins

    by TheTravelSlut Written Oct 3, 2012

    This "Old Florida" bar and grill truly is at the end of the road, not that far from Interstate 75 but far enough to allow patrons to arrive by car, bike, motorcycle , seaplane or boat (off the Peace River).

    Live music, eclectic setting and atmosphere, even allowing dogs on a leash while eating outdoors.

    Be sure to check out the detached tiki bar on the riverfront, the docked seaplane, and all the fun things in and aroun the bar. Even the gift shop is fun.

    Favorite Dish: Grouper sandwich is fresh and either fried, grilled, or blackened. Great portions and sides.
