Caribe Cafe

147 Court St SE
Live Oak, 32064
Reviews:
Great Cuban food in downtown live oak. El Caribe is a small cafe tucked in across the street from the courthouse. The inside is a bit small, but the staff is always welcoming, and the food is excellent. Cuban pastries and bread are baked fresh every morning, and make an excellent breakfast along with fresh brewed Cuban coffee. The lunch specials include ropa vieja (Beef stew), and vaca frita (pan seared chopped steak with onions) and are served with excellent beans and rice and plantains. The menu changes daily, but all of the dishes are delicious, and quite satisfying. The portions are good and the prices are very competitive. The Cuban Sandwich is the best in the area. The one downside is that there are only a few tables, so if you have a big group, it would be best to get carry out. Overall the dishes at El Caribe are flavorful, authentic Cuban comfort food, prepared from scratch every day. Definitely worth a stop for lunch and a coffee any day of the week.

Stopped in this morning to pick up some food, the two folks behind the counter were two of the friendliest, plain nicest, people I've met in any circumstance for some time. And the food was good, too.

We had an awesome breakfast here. There was plenty of food and all of it was delicious. We had a delightful waitress in Vicki. Really cute place and nice and clean. Stop if you are in town.
I've only been here a few times...but every time the place is clean, the food is great and the service is good. Food is made to order and I highly recommend the ranch dressing....it's the best I've had!
Great local restaurant, with tv

Sakura Fusion Japanese Sushi & Grill

1548 S Ohio Ave
Live Oak, 32064
Reviews:
Live in philly and came down here for a few days for a training camp. I'm used to having my pick of excellent restaurants in Philly which makes it difficult when traveling sometimes. This is the best restaurant in live oak by far. Wish I had found it sooner as I have been really disappointed by the options so far. Fish is fresh and they have some really nice special rolls. If sushi and raw fish isn't your thing they have excellent entrees with chicken beef or tofu options.
I've lived in Japan but I've been back in the States long enough to lower my expectations of a Japanese restaurant here. Hence the four stars. One star is well deserved just for enlivening the restaurant scene in Live Oak with something besides standard American food. The sushi rolls here were fine. "Clear soup" should have been miso soup instead (with no MSG!) but I'll overlook that. Seaweed salad was ample and satisfying. Tempura needed real tempura sauce but portions were very generous and it was well made.
Didnt have high expectations going in, but they definitely proved me wrong. Sakura is a nice local sushi/japanese restaurant near the Live Oak Publix. It offers good solid sushi at reasonable prices, and is probably the best place to eat in Live Oak. The menu is typical of local sushi places, and features a solid variety of sushi rolls along with bento boxes, hibashi, and udon noodles. The fish selection is a bit more limited than you might find in a larger city, but they offer quite a few good options including tuna, softshell crab, salmon, shrimp, eel, snapper to name a few. The portions are good, particularly for the price, and the presentation is always pleasant. The cuts of fish are generous, and everything is fresh. The udon noodles are something you dont see at every sushi place, and are very good as well. The interior is nice inside and the staff are very friendly and professional. Once in a while it can take a few minutes for the food to arrive, but no major waits. They offer great drink specials on plum wine and beer, and at dinner you can get 3 Japanese beers for the price of 2. I'd recommend Sakura to anyone traveling thru Live Oak without hesitation. It's not a Benihanna, but they offer good, fresh sushi at a reasonable price with a pleasant atmosphere and friendly service. Sakura stands far above most other Live Oak offerings.

It's always a wonderful experience! Yes the famous shrimp sandwich with roasted veggies is my favorite. Cooked to order, fresh and hot!
Read other review what more can I say, the food is cooked to order. This may cause a wait but worth the wait..
Excellent food, fast and superb service, relaxed, inviting atmosphere. I was delighted to discover that I could get a healthy fish dish here with grilled sway, black beans and rice and tomatoes. It was the special and well worth the $10. It hit the spot! The food came out at lightning speed and the server was very attentive. The only tiny thing I would improve with this place is switching out the styrofoam cups for some biodegradable corn starch ones or just plain old real glasses. Minor thing compared to all the great things about this place!

Dixie Grill & Steer Room

101 SE Dowling Ave
Live Oak, 32064
Reviews:
Awesome place. Great home cooking.
Well had a group of Spanish Business Folks here touring manufacturing outside Europe. Well Dixie was recommended. Sadly I am not impressed. The location was prime, food was not. A hungry man frozen Country Fried Steak would have been better than mine. Greens were ok, not great. Place was clean, well staffed, and staff was real friendly and fast. Food should have been half as good as service.
The Dixie Grill in Live Oak, FL is an "institution" in every sense of the word. My trip to the Dixie Grill makes at least three generations from our family that have eaten at this restaurant. There's a chance that a fourth generation has dined here, but it's hard to say. The Dixie Grill has been a part of the culture & history of Live Oak for over 50 years. For many years, they were THE place to eat. And although they are facing some new comers in town, they still stand tall as the local favorite. The fried chicken, gizzards, and liver are among some of their beloved Southern favorites. If you're on I-10, it's just a short 11 minutes from the Interstate to the front door of the Dixie Grill. Take Exit 275, and follow US-90 to downtown Live Oak. It's worth the trip!

What is there to say... It's a Dairy Queen. There aren't a lot of options in Live Oak. The food is o.k., but the ice cream is very good. This location is newer and has a drive through. If you go in December, try the Candy Cane Blizzard!
