Smoking Jims Bar-B-Q

3615 Havendale Blvd
Winter Haven, 33881
Reviews:
Every time I am in town for Sun 'n Fun (KGIF) we stop at Smokin' Jims. This year, we visited 2x for take-out! The BBQ is excellent; the ribs fall off the bone, the brisket is undeniable the best I have ever had! If dining in the restaurant, sit outside at the family-style tables and meet some new friends. This is a must stop every visit whenever I am in Winter Haven.

Burger King

205 Cypress Gardens Blvd SW
Winter Haven, 33880
Reviews:
I have a love/hate relationship with this Burger King. I hate the area where it is located. It is located too close to a major intersection 17 & Cypress Gardens Blvd, and it makes it difficult to get in and out of during heavy traffic periods. There is a back entrance off of 17, that helps a bit, but, it can still be a pain. The employees are always friendly at this location, the manager not so much, I have on multiple occasions cringed as one of the managers gave the employees a "tongue lashing" right in front of me. The manager is a bit grumpy but, not so much as to appear rude. The food is always well cooked, but, not overdone, as I have experienced at other B.K. locations. The menu is pretty much the same fare as is available at any other B.K. The restaurant is very clean, with a fantastic interior design featuring stone work and good accent lighting, that gives the feeling you are dining on steak in a fine dining establishment, rather than $1.99 10pc chicken nuggets, which are fantastic by the way. There is free wi-fi and it seems to be fast and reliable.

We just had the best experience picking out ice cream flavors with Lacey S- the blond helpful employee. She was patient and advised us on flavors. She did it all with a smile and a patient attitude. The ice cream was up to par. Thanks Lacey for helping us narrow down our choices!!

Shake Shoppe the

101 N Main
Winter Haven, 33880
Reviews:
This is a cute little place in a very pretty location. We happened to be visiting family at a local hospice facility so it was convenient for lunch. We ordered three sandwiches which were all fine; mediocre deli meat but fresh red tomatoes and soft buns. The lunch deal came with HUGE sodas and a HUGE bag of chips. In the evening, we walked over and got 2 milk shakes (a chocolate and a raspberry) and 2 twists. They were all delicious (and my husband is picky about his raspberry shakes) and a good value. The best part was that the chocolate shake made our very ill family member very happy. The staff is friendly and prompt.

Great little place with friendly service and tasty home cooking! Specializes in Amish and So. Philly cooking, but has lots of comfort foods as well. Country fried steak & chicken Parm. were very good. Portions are ample and all desserts are homemade. Seating can be limited at busy times of day.

Bistro 326 Pizza

326 W Central Ave
Winter Haven, 33880
Reviews:
First time I went here I had to look around to see if I had suddenly been transported to a street cafe in New York City. One of the best pizzas I have ever had. It's a very small, boutique type restaurant so it feels very intimate. Very nice ambiance with the wood burning pizza oven right behind the counter.
Absolutely one of the best Italian restaurants if not the best! Great food for a great price! Everytime we are in the area we have to eat there! We love it!!
Decided to give this place a try. We almost left as our server forgot we were her table.... But she apologized so we decided to stay. We started with side salads, which were good. Not my favorite Caesar salad, but good. The pizza though was delicious! Mmmmm so good. Probably the best pizza I've had in a while!

Chef Neil’s Bistro

1612 Dundee Rd
Winter Haven, 33884
Reviews:
One of the best little places in town! The meatloaf special is my absolute favorite. Great owner, food, and service!
We have eaten there twice and take out twice. The Cubans are the best in this area . They offer a variety of sandwiches and also a daily special. I understand Neil came from the now defunct famous Sundown Restaurant here in Winter Haven. Try this Bistro you will not be dissatisfied. Great food ,great prices. Beats the Cubans at the Columbia Restaurant hands down! Bill Lewis.
I love the small mom and pop feel of this restaurant. I asked the owner the generic question of what's good? He replied with everything. I gave it a whirl and ordered the chef's special of baked spaghetti and Italian sausage with garlic toast. It was delicious, garlicky sauce, it was simple but great taste. I will definitely be coming back for more, they have a great selection of sandwiches as well.

The Donut Man

1290 6th St NW
Winter Haven, 33881
Reviews:
I would like to try this place again but earlier so I have a chance at hot donuts! I went after 11:00am which they have stopped cooking the donuts at that point. I had a glazed which was good, and a buttermilk which was a little to sweet in my opinion. The iced coffee was also to sweet for my taste, I should have asked for no sugar in the coffee. but overall it was good flavor. very small old rustic place but part of the charm I think. Like I said I would go again just earlier.
Was in town for Legoland and found this on Yelp. Was ok. Kind of a Hometown type of place.
The Cinnamon roll is amazing! I order 2 or 3 at a time. I would NEVER go to DD over Donut Man!
