Places to Dine

Places to dine may be the best part of a vacation, we will search our and report back on some of the cool, funky, fascinating and downright good places to stop for a meal.

When it comes to soft serve ice cream, Surf's Up Ice Cream Shack in Haines City might be one of the best kept secrets in central Florida. It's a great location for soft serve and other chilled treats. Plus it's a destination point for fun (especially if you have kids). ...
So, we are always looking for new and innovative places to eat. The Pantry in Auburndale is new, innovative and already may well be one of the best restaurants in Polk County. We first heard about this place on the Polk County Restaurants & Reviews Facebook page. Fortunately, we...
While checking restaurants in Clermont we came upon the Crooked Spoon. We found it at the intersection of Citrus Tower Boulevard and US Highway 27 in the shadow of the famous Citrus Tower. Actually defined as a "Gastropub," this place is a wonderful dining experience. The Crooked Spoon has both indoor...
We were cruising up Highway 27 through Haines City looking for brunch. There, we came upon The Egg City Diner. Little did we know that in addition to a great meal, we'd get thrown back in time. We pulled into the parking lot to a single story building. It...
We have written in the past about the Wild Turkey Tavern in Avon Park. Recently we learned that they are serving breakfast. They're only available on the weekend, which fit our schedule. So, we decided to drop by and give it a shot. We sat in the corner booth and...
So we heard about ice cream at the Milking R Dairy in Okeechobee. They not only have a varied selection of flavors, they have a wonderful layout. It can be a great experience for young and old alike. Those who follow us know we like the fun and funky. Besides, July is Ice Cream Month,...
When it comes to the best Greek food in Florida - you would have to go a bit to top the Krazy Greek. Our first review of the Krazy Greek (now in Winter Haven) was back in 2018. We loved it then and we love it now. Since that...
When it comes to a true ice cream experience in Central Florida, our choice is Frostbite Ice Cream in the little hamlet of Frostproof. It's nestled along Highway 27A on the edge of town. The first thing we noticed was in addition to the dine-in the place also...
We always like to find new experiences and Nokomo's Sunset Hut in Nokomis was a very pleasant surprise. Actually, we discovered this place during our stay at the Bentley Botique Hotel. We were looking for a late night snack in the area and this was the only place that still was open at the time.
July is Ice Cream Month, so we decided to celebrate with a trip to the Venice Avenue Creamery in beautiful downtown Venice. Formerly known as Bresler's, this was a great find. As their sign says, "It's the same folks with a different name." They told us that they have...
