Santorini Restaurant

Reviewed By Kone07 - New Smyrna Beach

For good home style Greek food, this is the place. Friendly service. Be prepared to wait in line! It is not fancy, small and tables close together, so don't expect to have a romantic setting! It is reasonably priced for the delicious, generous portions.

Urban Brick

Reviewed By Travis M

We have been regulars at Urban Brick for over a year, and just love everything about the place. With being vegetarians we have always found plenty of options from pasta to sandwiches, and of course the amazing pizza. The pretzel appetizer with the chocolate dipping sauce, is unreal! The salads are the freshest around.
Rose the owner, is always so welcoming and accommodating and the staff is very pleasant as well. Overall this place always scores a perfect score for us.

De La Vega

Reviewed By Woody M - Palm Coast, Florida

I usually do not go to Mexican restaurants and do not care for most Mexican food. However, one day recently I ventured out of my comfort zone. I had the following item from the menu and found it to be surprisingly good.

Turkey Pura Vida Sandwich

Sliced Turkey, sweet plantains, queso blanco, white onions, and green onions. Lightly covered with a delicious Costa Rican Lizano glaze. Served on organic, vegan brioche bread and a side of tostones and a delicious mango dipping sauce.

Emmy's Time Out Tavern

Reviewed By Jane D - Flagler Beach, Florida

This place is a dive. It's obviously popular with the local seniors who prefer overcooked vegetables and mushy food--and that's exactly what you'll get. Our waitress was lovely, as was the hostess. Emmy, herself, was overly familiar and made us uncomfortable. The bathroom, however, was the worst--tiny, airless, and filled with the smell of sewage. The small air freshener on the back of the toilet failed to mask the odor. It was awful. I'll never go back. If I want good German food, I'll go to The Willow Tree in Sanford, which is far superior in terms of quality, service, and ambience.

Sonny's BBQ

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

We met here with a large group of friends for dinner. It was very busy and the staff were super friendly and accommodating (moved a table so we could fit more people). The food was very good, great prices, and convenient downtown location.

Boston Coffeehouse

The attraction is the deliciously unique assortment of specialty drinks and the award winning food selection as well as the finest coffees. There is also a private meeting room available for special occasions and other functions. Throw in free wifi for internet browsing and a lounge with comfortable sofas to sit back and relax, and you have something for everyone; great coffee, delicious breakfast and lunch menus, a place to meet for business or social occasions, or a place to grab a cup of coffee and a fabulous dessert and relax for a while with a good book.

we stopped in to have an afternoon coffee and snack in this quaint coffee shop on a side street near downtown Deland. They have many fresh brewed coffees and some awesome looking homemade desserts in their case. I had a regular coffee( not into all that fancy coffee drinks), and had a espresso brownie which was rich and dense and perfectly done, not too fudgie and not too dry. They also do breakfast and sandwiches and it looks like a hangout for the college crowd but it was a good mix of people when we were there. Worth a visit!

Reservations 24 hours in advance are required so they can order correct amount of food from local sources. That's one of the touches that makes this restaurant feel personalized. It's an appropriately small place that's intimate with music in the background. They offer a three course meal with appetizer, entree and dessert choices with or without wine pairings for one price. The owner/chef took a few minutes away from the kitchen to greet guests. The server was attentive but never obtrusive. Price includes gratuity so all in all it was a rare fabulous meal in a comfortable setting with excellent service at a bargain price. Thanks to the Cress owners for a unique dining experience.

Cook's Buffet, Cafe & Bakery

The restaurant in an old home, built in 1910. It has recently been restored to accentuate it's original beauty and craftsmanship. It is warm and homey, just like home. The beautiful stained glass windows are the homes original windows. The grounds are landscaped with lush green and colorful plants.

Reviewed By nancysantos33143 - Arlington, Virginia

What an interesting concept for restaurants. It is a buffet yet a sit-down meal at the same time. The service is outstanding and the salad bar is over-the-top! Every single topping for the salad bar you can imagine. It can be a meal in itself. The hot foods are amazing. The London Broil and prime rib was outstanding! Not to mention the several different soups available on the buffet. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for people that have varying taste in their party. You won't be disappointed.
