Manny's Chop House:

Number 1 local restaurant on Trip Advisor

Turn left onto US27 at Southern Dunes lights, then  right just after the second set of lights.

Our favourite restaurant for a superb atmosphere, succulent steak plus great value for money. Happy hour 4 to 7pm every day plus 'buy one get one free' fajita meal every Wednesday.

Great menu with lots of choice plus the air conditioning is not set to freeze.  Gorgeous steaks – a T-bone for around £14 and the house salad is tossed in front of you and tastes great.  Here you can also indulge in starters and sweets.

Ring ahead, they'll put your name on the list, as it gets very busy: (863) 422-3910


Sonny's Barbque Pit:

Turn left onto US27 at Southern Dunes lights, then  right at the second set of lights.

Retaurants you need to drive to:

The Outback Steakhouse:

On of our favourite eating-places is the Outback where we all enjoy a Blooming Onion for starters and the House Steak, chicken and pasta.  There are quite a few restauratns,  Formosa gardens on 192,  the back of Orlando Premium Outlets (great shopping) but in busy periods it can involve a long wait, so we were pleased to find out the local town of Winter Haven (around 10/15 mins drive) also has a restaurant and you usually get a table  straight away.

In addition,  Pizza hut, Red Lobster, Longhorn Steakhouse, Carrabba's Italian Grill, and The Olive Garden, plus another Manny's are based in Winter Haven.

Another popular restaurant, with a private beach, is Harborside on 7th Ave, Winter Haven, FL

Winter Haven - Take first right, after Mannys, but before flyover bridge, follow route to Winter Haven – it is well sign posted.





The Cracker Barrel:

Turn right at Southern Dunes lights, head stright down US27 for around 15 minutes. A few minutes after the flyover for the I4

Good, old fashion cooked foods, no alcohol sold.


The Cheesecake Factory

The Millenia Mall, Orlando  I4 turn off 78

So much more than cheescake....although thats amazing. But before you get to the cheesecake you have 100s of options for starters, mains and light lunch.


Bahama Breeze:

Nice menu, happy hour 4 to 6.  Themed restaurant with outside sitting
