This is a community service of The Villages Gourmet Club containing unbiased restaurant reviews in central Florida, by club members, without any advertisements. Our purpose is to promote and celebrate good food and exceptional service at reasonable and fair prices. Restaurants listed serve dinner only, unless otherwise stated (such as B/L/D). The prices stated in the reviews were accurate when the review was added to the site; hyper-inflation has now caused them to be outdated, unfortunately. We now have relative meal cost denoted by 1 Dollar Sign to 4 Dollar Signs for each establishment. Fast food establishments are not included, that also means meals served from food trucks or in styrofoam or cardboard containers too. Not every restaurant listed is considered gourmet, however most establishments are famous for at least one specialty. Underlined names are linked to another website containing more information. Videos giving more particulars about the establishment are linked with a Video symbol. Just click on the symbol. Some vintage postcards are also linked to historic videos. Establishments with free WiFi are indicated with a Free WiFi sign. Restaurants that include a Calorie Count for each item on their menu are noted with the Calorie Count symbol. Some offer Gluten Free items and are noted with the Gluten Free Menu symbol. Those offering discounts to AARP members (AARP Card) or Property Owners' Association of The Villages, Inc. members (POA Card) or Villages High School Buffalo Card supporters (Buffalo Discount) or Wildwood Middle High School Wildcats Card supporters (Wildcats Discount) are noted by those respective symbols. You may print out the description of each restaurant with the button, or driving directions with or without a map with the button. In the reviews, Q stands for Food Quality, S for Wait Service and V for Meal Value, all scored 1 to 5 each. "Return" indicates if the reviewer would come back again. The Star Rating is an average of all the review totals. We have a strict rule, only Club Members may submit a review; read the step by step instructions on our Directions Page. Then just click on that listing's button to get started. Make sure your browser preferences are set for "Enable JavaScript" for the buttons to work properly. But Safari browser is not recommended, especially on iPads; use Google Chrome instead for submitting reviews. To read 2006-2020 reviews, position your cursor over "Older Review". Reload the page or relaunch your browser if the older review box misbehaves. Where restaurants have been reviewed at least twice, their average rating is indicated by our STAR SYSTEM, ranging from:

3 Stars to 15 Stars

"I judge restaurants solely by the bread and by the coffee. " - Burt Lancaster.
