Perkins Restaurant & Bakery

Reviewed By nursebec

Being from Washington State, this was our first time at a Perkins restaurant. It's very similar to a small "Shari's" on the west coast. Good food at a great price. The customer service was very good. Cleanliness was average.

This store really looks nice after the major remodel. It is clean, the service is friendly and the food is great. Maybe we just hit a good time - but we were sitting and eating in what seemed like only 3 or 4 minutes after coming in the door

Beef 'O' Brady's

Reviewed By DessertsDivaFL

Hubby and I stopped for a mid afternoon lunch. They were not busy but servers were friendly and prompt. The food was very good but food took a lot longer than normal to arrive to our tables and other tables. Perhaps there was only one cook in the back at this time of day.No manager around so maybe that's who was cooking. There were signs on the door looking for experienced servers and cooks. Hmm....

Sonny's BBQ of Bartow. Southern BBQ at its finest. Slow-smoking favorites like pulled pork, ribs, brisket since 1968.

Sonny's BBQ595 N Broadway Ave.Bartow, FL 33830Haven’t been to this Sonny’s in quite a while. We were seated quickly and our waitress (Corrie) was quick to take and our drink order. She returned and I told here we would need some of the little ‘towelettes’ to which she said they were out but would check to see if any had come in. (Nope, none.) She brought out our food and kept our glasses filled and continued to take the time to be sure we didn’t need anything. It was refreshing to have someone doing a good job since of late many places we visit the service is OK at best. Wife had one of the new Combo Plates and I had Ribs. Everything was good and hot. We got to discussing a soup they used to have (wild rice and chicken) and she said they had brought it back to the menu on certain days. I used to really like it, especially when it was ‘thick’ and you could stand your spoon up in the soup. Haven’t tried the new version but will have to visit again to check it out.

Mike's Fine Foods

Reviewed By billmoffatt

Mikes Grille is NEW and is not affiliated with Mikes Fine Foods. That place closed when the owner sold it and moved back to Greece. This place is just taking advantage of a similar name of a place that was actually good. This place is terrible. Ive tried it twice ajd twice it sucked. Bland bland and bland. The only thing good is the riceand the rolls. They are very pricey ($16) for bland fish and fries. Id rather spend that at Carrabbas abd get flavor. Do yourself a favor, just keep on driving.

I am a BBQ aficionado, and this place is great. Great food, polite and quick service, and fair prices. Loved the ribs, beans, and slaw. This place is tucked off the road almost directly across from the Hampton Inn Hotel. Try it, you’ll like it!

Broadway Diner

Come enjoy large portions, meals to fit any budget. The restaurant is family friendly, low noise, and with the garden style Old Broadway setting gives it a laid back atmosphere. Food is home-style and home made with fresh ingredients.

Reviewed By Track1089

Driving thru, from Rte 17, we searched Trip Advisor and picked Broadway from the ‘nearby choices’ offered. Menus are tough; not always available but l selected here from the photos ... place looked clean and orderly. Everything was as the photos showed. We ordered grilled cheese and corn beef Ruben. See photos again. Wholesome, filing and delicious is the bottom line. If driving near-by on 98 or 17 come in. Use your GPS.

Ruby Tuesday

Reviewed By Jim H

This is Wed. Dec. 19, 2018. Ruby Tuesday sent out a new coupon deal where if you purchased any entrée you got a second one of equal value for free. That is a deal you cannot beat. So we got 6 of our friends who also received the internet coupons and we came here for dinner. We all choose various items and went for the very extensive salad bar that was far more than satisfying with lots of items to pick from. We were all Canadians and we never see restaurants in the area where we live give discount meals such as this. .

Catfish Country

Reviewed By GradyM329

I was served a loaded baked potato, fried catfish, baked beans, hush puppies, sweet tea, and the baked potato was the worst tasting thing I ever put in my mouth and I have served in third world countries. It is impossible to describe; however, I will try. When the potato was served it was so weird, ice cold and tasteless. The second potato was just as terrible and taken back to be heated but there was no improvement so I gave up and ate the other food that was excellent. If you choose to eat here pass on the baked potato. The fish, baked beans and hush puppies were the correct temperature and delicious; therefore, dropping their rating from a five to four and recommend the restaurant.

Our Bunco group has several times enjoyed lunch at Ovations in Lakeland. Today we had another great meal. We had 9 women in their large round booth, and had a great server, Kristina. She was very friendly and on the spot with everything we needed. The food was very good and the lunch specials are very affordable. One of the managers let us share some delicious desserts on the house. We’ll definitely be back again! Try the Pineapple Up-side Down Cake it’s wonderful.Thanks so much for the compliments and for the recommendations. How about that pineapple upside down cake? It’s one of our favorites too! We would be so happy to serve you and your party again, anytime.-Team Ovation
