Great BBQ unexpected. Pulled pork sandwich was great. Beef brisket was very tender. It looks like takeout only but there is a door to walk in.

Outstanding! So glad to call it my FAVORITE place and so close to home!
I can't believe I've lived in Orlando for the last decade and have only been able to venture out here once! This place is INCREDIBLE. I had the Elvis pulled pork sandwich with Gouda cheese and yellow BBQ sauce - strange, I know, but so very delicious!! However, the stand out dish here is the cucumber, tomato, and feta salad! Perfectly crunch veggies tossed in the most magical vinaigrette dressing and a generous amount of feta! It was so good I ordered a large side for lunch the next day - and it was as blissful as the night before. I'm leaving next weekend for bigger ventures, Orlando, but every chance I'm in town, I'll be back to Yellow Dog. You have my word!
Love the full rack of ribs and the fact you can take your pup along. Such a cool atmophere also - highly recommend

Dixie Cream Cafe

Reviews:
I love this place! The staff is always accommodating, and so friendly. The food is excellent and I love the mimosas! I love the restaurant decor and the revolving art work.
This is a hidden gem in downtown Windermere that is very busy for brunch on the weekends with the locals. It's open only for breakfast and lunch. The beef brisket hash is one of a kind, and just writing this review is making my mouth water thinking about it. For lunch there are a selection of salads as well. Busy and can get loud, very casual environment.
Love Dixie Cream Cafe! Food is always good and their breakfast sandwiches are the best! I'm fortunate to live right down the street from it! The only thing I wish is that they had mimosas/brunch specials at least on Sunday's. Their mimosas are $7 a pop for a small flute glass! Other than that, I would definitely recommend it If you're near by!

Allen’s Creamery & Coffee House

Reviews:
Oh my God! This little ice cream and coffee shop has the best BBQ in town! We had the pull pork and brisket. They were both flavorful and juicy. The BBQ sauce was also great! It does not have a regular restaurant setting. But it could be a nice place to go on a late Sunday morning yo have coffee and breakfast, hang out and read a nice book, have some ice cream on the way out and take a pond of BBQ to go for a late afternoon lunch. YUM-MMMMMY!
I've visited Allen's several times, including twice in the past three days. There is something about spring weather that drives me to ice cream shoppes and Allen's is a gem. Nestled in downtown Windermere, it offers scenery that comes closer to imitating the New England of my youth than any other location I know in Central Florida. Allen's offers ice cream, frozen yogurt, sandwiches, coffees and a few other treats. I tend to be a purist and stick with the ice cream. Admittedly, I get the low fat, no sugar added ice cream whenever possible, and that is not really all that purist of me, but I make my own rules. This past Saturday, I had my puppy in tow so I could not enter Allen's to place my order. Not a problem. Allen's has a window that opens to the street to allow for easy ordering. Every ice cream shop should have a window that opens to the street! I ordered a double scoop of NSA mocha almond fudge in a waffle cone. It was creamy and full of nuts--positively heavenly. I savored it as I walked about the downtown area. Points to Allen's for serving cones in a sheath that catches melting ice cream and keeps the hands clean! I returned today as part of a celebratory lunch with my wife. Today is our 18th anniversary so ice cream was in order (as was our very tasty lunch at Yellow Dog Eats beforehand!). I ordered the same ice cream that I had on Saturday. The ice cream was just as wonderful but the cone was a tad stale. It did not really detract too much from my experience but it did contribute to the loss of a star from this review. At the same time, when I returned for an extra scoop (my wife eats slowly and I eat quickly so I had to do something while I waited for her!), Allen's cut the price on my extra scoop because of the inconvenience of a stale cone. Points to Allen's (and any establishment) that wants feedback and acts on it! My wife had a low-fat coffee chip frozen yogurt and loved it. She has informed me that we will be back! If you happen to be in Windermere, Allen's is a wonderful place for a treat and a break. Keep in mind that if you are in Windermere, speeders are hunted down and ticketed without mercy, so stay below the speed limit!
The ice cream was pretty good.

Reviews:
Great food, great bands, but the volume is too loud! We checked the dB level and the peak registered over 110 (with 110 as max) come on, this is Windermere! The target market is over 40 with disposable income, not 20! We could not even order a drink without screaming at the waitress! Wish we routinely spent our money here, but can't bring ourselves to it, even though it's only 2 miles from our house!!
Service was good. Decor is very blah for Windermere. Looks like they ran out of money in middle of build out. Doesn't feel like you are someplace special. Seats at bar are the cheapest hardest seats in a restaurant/bar in the area. We sat at bar and had a steak flat bread of some sort. It was good, not great. Stick with Eddie V's, Roccos, Vines etc...
We come here about once a month. The service is ok. If they are really busy, it runs on the slow side. We have done brunch, lunch and dinner. Food is always good. My favorite is the shrimp and chicken salad. So good! The bartenders do a good job with the drinks. Definitely recommend. It's a loud place and can get pretty crowded. Prices are typical for this area. If you're a big group, I recommend a reservation. The reception in the restaurant is not so great. You'll have to step out for calls.

Summer Palace

Reviews:
We have been eating here since we moved to Winter Garden. We usually really enjoyed the food, however, the last time we ate here we had such horrible service I have to only give it 2 stars. We ordered food on our way home from work. I went and picked it up and it was ready really fast. The bag was stapled shut so I couldn't check my order but we never really had a problem before so I didn't bother. My mistake. When I got home half our order was missing. We had spent 45 bucks on two meals and 2 appetizers so I was pretty mad. I called them back right away and her response was come and get the rest. I really didn't see the reason I should have to get back out of the house when they messed it up. They do deliver so I said they should deliver it to me. I was put on hold and had to explain my situation about 4 times before someone finally said we are too busy, it would take over an hour and a half. I was really upset by this point and just couldn't understand why we were not being put to the front of the line because it was their fault! I finally got a manger person who was not going to budge. I had to pick it up but I said I wanted all new food since now half of us had to wait to eat. She agreed she would re make my food but only if I brought the whole order back. Like are you going to reuse my food for someone else! It was so confusing. I went back and go a whole new order and when I when I tried to give her the old food she just let me have it. So why did I have to bring it back, I felt like they thought I was lying. All in all it was a bad experience and I thought it was poorly handled. I wont be going back, because they are very expensive for a Chinese restaurant and if I'm going to pay that amount I want good service. On top of it the chicken dish we ordered had mostly vegetables and hardly any chicken. I also asked for no MSG because I suffer from terrible migraines and they must have been upset with me because I had the worse headache of my life the next morning. I think they had added extra MSG but I really don't know. I definitely will not be going back.
I go here when it is timely only. The food is obviously frozen and warmed up then covered in sauce. The fried rice is so dry sometimes I can't chew it. Look around before you go here for a good meal.
If you love Chinese food, it's a great place, if you love Sushi, it's even better! I love this place. They have a great selection of sushi, and what's even better is that the all you can eat menu is made to order. Dang good deal there if you have a big appetite for sushi. The Dynamite rolls are simply amazing! I've not found a place that does them better. Same goes for their Eel rolls. The fish is about as fresh as fresh can get.

BURGERFI

4750 The Grove Dr,Ste 104
Windermere, 34786
Reviews:
I had tried a sample of this at Yelp's Night at the Museum event and it was delicious. I just learned that this location was fairly close to my house, so my friend and I decided to try it out. The restaurant is very cool and almost industrial looking. They have outdoor seating and large glass doors that they open so that it's somewhat of an open air concept. All of the furniture is made out of recycled material, which I liked. There are a couple of long tables for groups, but most of the tables are made to seat 4 people. When we first walked into BurgerFi, it was pretty busy, especially for a Tuesday night. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to the front and order. Let me tell you, there are a lot of options, that I almost couldn't decide. Everything is a la carte, so if you want a meal, you have to order the burger, fries/onion rings, and a drink. My friend and I decided to share the Cry & Fries, which are the french fries and onion rings combination. I also got the BurgerFi cheeseburger. When you place your order, they give you a pager and we went and found a table. What they didn't tell us is that you are supposed to put you pager in the center of the table on the round metal section. When you do this, the pager will list your location, so that the delivery person can bring you your food without yelling your name. That is genius! Oh my goodness, these burgers were amazing! They weren't too greasy and you could tell that the food was fresh. I ordered the garlic aioli on my burger and this is definitely the way to go. We ordered the Cry & Fries with Parmesan Cheese & Herbs on top, but I wasn't too impressed with this. I felt like it made the french fries dry. Next time, I would definitely eat my fries with a sauce of some sort. The onion rings are ridiculous. They are bigger than my hands. I ate one and half onion rings and I was done. They are delicious, but just absurdly huge. Afterwards, we wanted to try one of their delicious desserts. We were having difficulty deciding between a shake, a frozen concrete, or a sundae and asked the order taker what she would recommended. She told us to go with the sundae. I got chocolate with brownies and hot fudge. It was okay. I wasn't a fan of the brownie. Next time, I will definitely want to try a red velvet shake. I really like this place and the burgers are delicious. The prices are decent, compared to some other burger places. I like that this restaurant has a cool neighborhood feel. This is definitely going to be my go-to place for burgers from now on.
Okay experience. I ordered the brisket burger and I didn't think it was noticeably better than other burgers around town. I wouldn't recommend paying the extra for it. I liked the quick service ordering and benefits of beer and wine. The onion rings are my favorite here. They are huge and the batter is delicious. The fries are on par with five guys. Large seating area both indoor and outdoor.
Pretty yummy little spot. They've got a lettuce "bun" option for all the health freaks and a pretty large solo fry. I loved the soda machine that you can choose pretty much any drink you want from and I drooled over the thought of a red velvet shake. As we were leaving the table next to us got a plate full of Parmesan covered fries that looked amazing and smelled wonderful. The cashier behind the register was very accommodating by offering his opinion of what to get and even came to check up on us at the table to make sure we liked what we ordered :)

This is a fantastic Subway location. Always clean. Always efficient and fast service. Always freshly stocked ingredients and friendly service! I'm a huge fan of Subway's ordering format, where you are able to walk the Ingredient line and build your sandwich with your "Sandwich Artist". As a picky eater, I always appreciate the opportunity to customize my food to my preferences!
Went with family to this location. Ordered sandwiches, flatizza, and salad. Pizza cutter broke on daughter's flatizza (didn't offer to make a new one). Gross. My salad was about the size of a small side salad. Not going back.
The employees here are incredibly rude. The trash cans out front are always overflowing with garbage every time I've gone there. Also, the tea in the makers tasted disgusting the two times I got tea there. That's a clue that the machines aren't being cleaned. I'd give fewer stars but the system won't let me.

The kids wanted to eat here was not my choice but it's the only neatest place to us. Once again service wad horrible! It was pretty slow I get it but try not to spend more time on your phones then on your guest! You might get a bigger tip!
the service is really bad is close to home thats why i always ended up coming here again and again 5 times still bad service and the food is not that good
We have now been to Jumbo Sushi 6 times since they have opened. We have done Togo and eaten at the bar and in booths. I can honestly say they have improved since opening. Our first few times the wait time for the food was very long. But now we only waited about 20 mins for all of our sushi rolls this most recent time. The food quality is superb. The fish is high quality sushi grade. I always have a hand roll. It is the perfect appetizer. Both Togo experiences were exceptional. We called on the way home from work. We got there in 25 mins. The sushi was ready and still fresh when we got home. Give them some more time to work on the service aspect and they will be a 5 star all the way!
