Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

For those who need a break from the urban sprawl—or who may be just in search of a decent early dinner after a Giraffe Ranch excursion—this farm-to-table eatery in distant Dade City will hit the spot. In an old one-story farmhouse in the middle of a kumquat grove, it's a low-key escape for the most cultured of Tampa Bay residents (though casual dress is fine here). Popular dishes include, as one might expect, fried green tomatoes, shrimp creole, honey-chili-glazed quail, and rabbit confit, but keep in mind that the menu is ever-changing with the seasons. The beer menu features local brews, and the wine list is extensive.
