Had lunch more than two times here and it is delicious. Great for lunch and the choice of salads and sandwiches may seem generic however the quality of the cheeses is what sets them apart. I recommend the salmon salad and try the sample while you wait for your order to be ready.

Great ice cream!!
The fruit-based ones are outstanding (mango, strawberry).... taste like the real thing!
Have also tried the Nutella, Cake Batter.... very, very good....
The whole nitrogen thing is gimmicky, but the taste of the product is great
Service is good and fast.
Prices are decent, specially for the high quality product you get
I am a regular with my kids
Not to be missed

I'm really not a fan of Starbucks coffee but I will visit one from time to time for pastries and other things. I saw this shop last night while eating dinner next door and for some reason it appealed to me. I came back for breakfast this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good food and good service.

The ceviche was fantastic. The seafood and fish were very fresh. We enjoyed every single thing we ate including tuna roll and the dessert! The service was very attentive and efficient.
The manager was on site and very much attentive to the needs of the clients. We had a problem with our reservations but she was eager to solve the problem. And she did to our satisfaction.

The gelato flavors are numerous, tasty, colorful, especially fun for kids, and creative. However, the egg/cheese/ham croissant is rubbery, and the flan can only be described as instantly artery clogging and tasteless, with a texture akin to lard. I've made flan, and it is essentially an egg custard. This was not even close. I had to throw it out. The rice pudding was okay, but nothing special. I have not tried anything else. The staff is friendly and attentive. You should go!

Lucille's American Cafe is a 1940s- style upscale diner that captures the "luncheonette" feel of that era's most popular eateries, but seasons it with a dash of 21st-Century finesse. It is conceived as a comfortable neighborhood respite from the home kitchen. Homemade food, served in a stylish but casual atmosphere, with large portions and value pricing make it particularly attractive to families with children as well as couples and singles. Take-out and delivery service, as well as catering, are available and just a phone call away.Old-fashioned oscillating fans are hung on the walls over the dining room. Liberal use of dark wood, ceramic tile, chrome, leatherette, fabric, mirrors, bullet- shaped hanging light fixtures and wall sconces contribute to the feeling of authenticity. The predominant colors are seafoam green, black, taupe and ivory, selected for a 1940s palette. They complement the interior design and are lively, but easy on the eyes.Seating is provided in booths or free standing tables. The chairs are framed in chrome, like those found in a typical family kitchen in the 1940s, and finished in black leatherette. The booths are upholstered in a combination of seafoam green and black. Also offered are patio tables that overlook a vast lake, the perfect atmosphere on a brisk day.Owners Paul & Beth Nunez believe that high quality food and friendly service will keep guests coming to Lucille's. The philosophy is simple: Do everything possible to exceed guests' expectations in food, service and atmosphere. Lucille's wants guests to feel good enough about their dining experience that they would tell others of their experience.
Based on the reviews I had read on Trip Advisor, I was really looking forward to my visit. Unfortunately, my expectations were not fully met. I found the ambiance interesting, including the information on the opening page of the menu about the restaurant's namesake, and the 50's music playing softly overhead. We were seated quickly and our waitress, Rosa, was knowledgeable and attentive. I ordered the Yellow-Tailed Snapper with the mango salsa and the meal came with a rice pilaf and mixed squash vegetables. My friend ordered the skirt steak which came with the same sides. We also ordered the onion rings starter (appetizer) and I got a side Caesar salad. We found almost all of it tasteless and unappetizing; the rice may have been leftover from lunch or, perhaps, the previous day and the vegetables had all of the flavor cooked out of them. The skirt steak was, likewise, overcooked and bland. The salad lettuce was wilted and the dressing uninspired. Fortunately, the onion rings were good but the accompanying "special" dipping sauce tasted like a blend of thousand island dressing and (a bit too much) horseradish; it was pungent. The Yellow-tail Snapper was GREAT, everything I hoped it would be, and the (mild) mango salsa was the perfect accompaniment; it did NOT overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. Apparently, this is not a regular item on the menu (the plank salmon is a Friday staple) but, you may see it offered as a daily special; I highly recommend it. Rosa seemed genuinely concerned that we were not entirely pleased with our meals, but she redeemed us entirely when she recommended the blueberry pie a la mode. It was absolutely delicious and we ate every bite! From our limited sampling of a very intriguing menu, I think this is a very good non-chain restaurant. If I lived nearby I would probably dine here regularly. However, since I live on the other coast of Florida, if I do return to the area I will probably call Lucille's to see if the Yellow-tail is on the menu. If not, I will likely dine with one of the restaurant's competitors.

Casual family restaurant with genuine Italian cuisine. Family owned and operated for 25 years. Homemade bread, pasta, pizza and daily fish specials and other daily specials.
Met another couple for lunch. Sat outside as it was a comfortably cool day. Very full menu with many choices. Two of us had sandwiches which were quite good. Lasagna was excellent as well. Nice selection of beer and wine. Friendly service with Bob, who turned 60 that day! Will certainly consider returning when in area.

Service was good but food was mediocre at best. Portion of tuna for entree was small, sautéed spinach tasted "granular" as if it had sand in it (I think it's the salt not dissolving fully but it's still not pleasant to chew on nonetheless). Tortilla for the bang bang shrimp tacos was like chewing on a carpet, could barely be cut but the kids ate the shrimp and veggies inside anyway.
So my take away is... hit the bar for a Happy Hour drink and then go down the plaza for dinner elsewhere!
Actually I'll be re-gifting the gift cards from the holidays to others to use, in the hopes that they enjoy it, as I won't be back, ever. And you don't need me to either, do you? It's a 40 minute wait at 6:30 so you have plenty of customers to choose from, you don't need my family at all.
You sure showed me... so thank you!

Really incredible service and authentic italian foods. Had a Strawberry and greens salad to start followed by gnocchi bolognese with meatballs. Incredible. Decent wine selection to go with it. My colleague had a cheese stuffed meatball in pastry as a starter, she loved it, followed by Chicken linguini in a vodka sauce which she took half home. Large portions, and worth the visit. Reserve or get there early.

friendly, personal service. Get countryside vibe from grey/brown floor and wall tiling reminiscent of (Italian countryside) fieldstone. Good variety of dishes in each meal category. Good sized portions, inviting plating. Will substitute. The fish carpaccio appetizer was outstanding - unique, beautifully presented, and absolutely delicious. Decent spacing between tables. Good for parties as well as parties of 2 or 4. Inside seating only. Large bar. Large main dining room and smaller, quieter side room. have been here 2-3 times over last few years.
