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). Fast food establishments are not included. 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. Those offering discounts to AARP members (AARP Discount) or Buffalo Card supporters (Buffalo Discount) are noted by those respective symbols also. 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. 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. Now you can search our entire database, just click the Search button at the bottom of the next window. To read 2006-2012 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
