Dixie Cream Cafe

Reviewed By eshaynes - Lakeland, Florida

This was our first time at Dixie Cream Cafe and I would recommend it. Nice atmosphere inside and some tables outside (dogs allowed on outside patio). Clean inside and friendly staff, was busy but we were sat quickly.

I had fried chicken with grits my husband had potatoes and brisket hash, both were really goods and they came with delicious big biscuits.

I am looking forward to going back and trying something from the bakery, we just didn't have room after our meals as they are big portions.

My French Cafe

Reviewed By 536mildredj

Close your eyes and take a bite. Your first encounter is the cruchy exterior of a beautifully browned croissant. Just past that welcoming first bite is the soft sinking smooth taste that totally melts in your mouth. Imagine the noise of the bicycle bell ringing and the car tooting it’s hello to a passerby. The aroma of coffe wafts thru the air...... your right here in Windermere but your mouth is in France. All the treats here from pastries to meals are freshly made, custom sandwiched, delicious dinners( on special dates) coffees, daily bread and more! A DO NOT MISS quaint place to relax and loose yourself to a taste so authentic you’ll forget where you are.

Ellie Lou's Brews & BBQ

Here at Ellie Lou's, we serve fresh, chopped to order BBQ and our sides are made from scratch.

Reviewed By SanAntonioGigi - Ocoee, Florida

Good selection of food with different meal types. Sandwiches and plates with sides. We had chicken, ribs and Turkey. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Another fabulous thing was the root beer that is caffeine free and uses pure cane sugar. Yum!

RusTeak Restaurant & Wine Bar

Reviewed By 719cromero - Ocoee, Florida

For happy hour, lunch, dinner and good drinks and wine bar with handmade beers, the Rusteak Restaurant and Wine Bar is a good option in Ocoee, near Colonial Dr and Maguire Rd. The menu is very good with appetizers and small plates. The price is high but the staff is awesome.

That One Spot

Reviewed By Ian S - New York City, New York

The food was excellent. The layout of the business is the issue. No clear instructions on placing orders. The inside is cramped and all it takes is about five people to jam up the entrance. A varied menu, pleasant staff and the food was really well prepared. The inside is cramped. Outside is nice but not much of a view as it's right on the highway. Overall it is clean.

The Melting Pot

Reviewed By nycurler - Hadley, New York

We enjoyed going back to 1972. Chadwick, our server, brought us up to speed on Fondue 2018. Chadwick was polite and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed this unique didning experience. One of our guest had a food allergy and Chadwick was excellent at steering us in the right direction to avoid any negative reactions. It was the perfect start to our vacation in Orlando, we all left smiling.

Chatham's Place

A fine dining experience like no other in Orlando. Locally sourced ingredients, farm fresh from the Chef's very own local farm. A local favorite for over 20 years.

Reviewed By cbeard - Dalton, Ga

We travel extensively and enjoy great dinners in the various places we've been. Our dinner at Chatham's Place was among the best we've ever experienced. The setting is cozy and comfortable. Bob Rose on piano adds a dimension of ambiance not so common today. Along with the great setting, the service and food are absolutely top-notch. Some will complain about the high prices, but the food quality and service levels attained at Chatham's warrant the added expense. If you're looking for a high-caliber dining experience, Chatham's fits the bill.

Meal notes: The chef provides several complimentary elements during the seating. This included a couple of small appetizers, bread and a sorbet before the main course. We had a Caprese salad, sausage and peppers, sauteed red snapper, cherries jubilee and a white chocolate souffle. All were perfectly prepared.
