Best place in Lake Wales for fresh seafood. Not a huge selection but usually good and fairly priced: tuna, grouper, flounder, snapper, shrimp, clams...they also smoke their own salmon and it's delicious. Next door to a really good local farmers market too.

The entrance was quirky and the signs somewhat rude, but being a local native I can empathize.When we opened our menus, we were surprised the prices were so high.My husband, who recommended the restaurant, chose liver and onions, which were dry. My mother and I love shrimp, so we went with the fried shrimp. The batter coating was light, tasting under cooked. The sides were good; collard greens and baked potato. The tablespoon of butter/ oleo on the potato was too much for my mom.Two of us had a drink. The bill was $78 before a tip. I usually give a place two trips, but we canât afford to go back.

A laid-back waterfront restaurant in River Ranch, Florida, at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo, Westgate Smokehouse Grill offers great family-friendly dining overlooking the scenic Kissimmee River. Menu items at Westgate Smokehouse Grill include steaks
We had such a great time. Julie was our server. She recommended that we get the swamp fries for an appetizer and they did not disappoint. Julie was attentive, fast, and truly a joy. The food and environment were inviting. We will definitely be coming back again.Kyle,We are extremely grateful that you chose to share your experience of Westgate Smokehouse Grill.

I was camping in the area and wanted to find a place close by to eat. Jay Bee's was the first place I came to. I thought it was rather isolated but the parking lot was full.We were seated quickly and were told that the special for the night was spaghetti but it was all gone. (The people across from us had spaghetti - sure looked good.)My wife and I each ordered a patty melt - hers well done, mine medium. At other places the burgers will come out the same. We were both surprised when we each got the patty melt cooked the way we wanted. My wife said it was the best patty melt she ever had.The staff was very friendly even though the place was busy. I will definitely stop in again when I am visiting the area.

Met two couples for seafood at this often locally recommended and previously visited (maybe three or four times) in several years of coming to central Florida. This past Saturday, two couples (we were one) drove an hour and the third couple was local. Our locals eat here several times a year, easy meet up. Itâs very casual, food typically reliably good, tables and floors clean, an old unattractive fish camp on a lake that upgraded from portapotties to flush toilets, with outdoor open air bar and enclosed indoor a/c bar both with table food service, live low key music outside, with a steady stream of locals coming to sit and stay awhile. Think reliable standby, a solid second choice, slow night out. Oyster night is now Wednesdayâs with bucket and beer for $30 at oyster shuckers counter - good deal worth visit. Other weekday specials. Fried grouper top notch. Blackened grouper not as good. Gumbo thick and NOLA good. Catfish perfectly done. Cole slaw & Fries good. Two star loss for this crazy scene: We had 2 tables pushed together and 3 checks and were told our group reached its oyster limit when one more tried to order a dozen after seeing three others looked good when served. What? Yes, no more. Why? Because the machine wouldnât allow me to put in more. What? If you want more you can go to the oyster bar. What? Three of us ordered a dozen oysters and 6 of us ordered dinners! Now a fourth wants oysters before their catfish and the answer is no? Yes. What? No you canât have more. WHAT! Only 3 orders to a table. Are you serious because technically we have 2 tables and oh for heavens sake, why are we arguing tables and allowances when itâs ridiculous that you wonât serve a dozen oysters to me because Iâm paying for food at your restaurant and you have plenty of available oysters so please send the manager. Manager: Itâs $17 here and less at oyster bar. WHAT? I donât care if itâs more here and your restaurant shouldnât either because oh for goodness sakes this is a crazy ridiculous conversation so forgetaboutit. Yep, for real. Head slap times six.

Worst visit ever! Jasmine was horrendous. The only word she knows is "no". I wanted a drink that was on the menu. "No" didn't even suggest an alternative. Wanted to upgrade my dinner. "No" asked for butter to dip my lobster in. Brought cold butter. Never took any used plates. Horrible

The Egg Hose is our favorite breakfast restaurant. This is a locals hangout because of the food, service and price. The family friendly atmosphere and friendly staff is one of the reasons we keep coming back. They have a great lunch menu as well as daily specials. Restaurant is clean and service is always top notch.

My wife and I were passing through on our way to Key West, and this place was highly recommended from a gentleman who lives at Nalcrest. We shared the seafood platter, and it was big enough for the two of us. Waitress was super cool, beer was cold, and the food was awesome. Great restaurant!

When I visit Lake Wales, I usually eat at least one meal at the Lake Wales Family Restaurant. This time I was traveling alone at lunchtime. I sat at the counter, and had a great sandwich with fries and sweet tea. Food and service were excellent. I shall return!

Wonderful way to celebrate a milestone birthday for a friend. Since there were more than twenty guests, there were many different orders. Everything looked and tasted great. A bit out of the way but GPS will get you there. Fresh fish and seafood lovers, this is a must.
