Odette

Reviewed By Laura D - Florence, AL

My family went for a birthday dinner, and the food was divine! For appetizers we had the pork skins, which are unlike any you've ever experienced, and the black eyed pea fritters with delicious sauces. I had the seared chicken plate, and almost slurped the veggies and sauce right off my plate. My husband had the steak frites with chimichuri. I will say that he is from Miami and said it was the best chimichuri sauce he's ever had. The kids devoured their fresh cheeseburgers and fries with homemade ketchup. The cocktails are imaginative and wonderful, and the service was excellent. Overall a fabulous meal!!

Rosie's Mexican Cantina

Reviewed By Donna D - Middleton, MA

This restaurant is always crowded and you can see why — great food at reasonable prices. Our server Candice was top notch! Really made us feel important and offered helpful suggestions. We had the tacos with fajita meat - both steak and chicken. The chicken was even more flavorful than the steak but both were delicious. They even give you free soft serve ice cream and balloons! Warm chips and salsa! What’s not to love?!

Ricatonis

Reviewed By GigiSeven - Nolensville, Tennessee

The food was excellent. The fresh warm bread and dipping sauce was the best. We were eating light so the soup of the day was mushroom/Brie and was amazing. The house salad was fresh and tasty. The women’s restroom was filthy which tainted our review. Would love to try the pizza sometime.

360 Grille

Reviewed By Nadia T - Birmingham, Alabama

I had read about the 360 rotating restaurant in a local newspaper and decided to book it for my husbands birthday.
Firstly I have to say that the staff are amazing. Friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. Our table was perfect for taking in the sights of Florence and beyond.
My husband and I both ordered the fish and grits which was absolutely delicious. A great blend of fresh flavors and tastes and a good portion too. The tomato salad we shared was also enjoyable.
To our surprise, our server brought out the most delicious baked Alaska dessert to celebrate the occasion. The decadent red velvet cake base with ice cream and meringue topping was the perfect end to a wonderful evening.
I recommend you give this place a try!

Bunyan's BBQ

Reviewed By Christina L - Seattle, Washington

Every time we visit family in Muscle Shoals we get takeout from Bunyan's. Our go-to items are the pulled pork, coleslaw (on the spicy side and very good), and potato salad. Sometimes we get the beans. I've had a lot of barbecue in different places but Bunyan's can't be beat.

Yumm Thai Sushi and Beyond

Yumm is the only truly Thai restaurant in the Shoals area...but it's so much more.From sushi to Thai cuisine - and everything beyond, including the best Happy Hour in town, this is the place to meet your friends for lunch or dinner! Our mouth-watering selection of authentic Thai dishes, from mild to spicy, are complimented by sushi, beautifully and artistically prepared. Best of all, it's served inside in an upscale venue or on our sidewalk dining area. But don't be fooled by our looks - we're sophisticated and delicious, but we're VERY affordable. Come to Yumm and see for yourself - it's Thai, sushi and beyond!

Reviewed By Danyel C - Houston

Stopped in for lunch and was very pleased. The beef Thai salad was the perfect combination of fresh and spicy. They have a patio to enjoy the great weather. Will definitely be back.

Staggs Grocery

Reviewed By dhenski - Florence, AL

I was taught early in adulthood that any restaurant to which construction workers, retired farmers, policemen, and politicians flock is a winner. Every weekday morning you will find that mix - plus students and a few white collars - bumping elbows at community tables. Staggs breakfasts are fit for people who work hard for a living and also for folks who aren't afraid to reward themselves at the end of a long week. In the case of Staggs Grocery the Friday (only) reward is made manifest in the form of biscuits and chocolate gravy, a micro-regional delicacy. If you can't make it to East Florence early in the day stop at Staggs for lunch and thank the heavens you did. Staggs burgers are large-and-in-charge, hand-pressed, and dripping with toppings. At this point don't bother skipping the crinkle-cut fries. You can have a salad tomorrow.

Swampers Bar & Grille

Savory among Florence, AL, restaurants, Swampers is sure to please. Honoring the rich music heritage of the area, this casual dining option features live music celebrating local sounds and Southern flavors distinct among Florence, Alabama, restaurants.

Reviewed By Wylietravel

If you want good food and great music pretty much any night of the week — this is the place to go! The food is pretty much the same as the hotel restaurant (very good) and great staff as well.
