Totally agree. I don't know how WOB at SS stays in business. Very rude bartender, and the highest priced beer (even a domestic draft) anywhere near SS. I've never seen the place even half full.

My trainer told me he went to WOB in SS once, never again

Maybe this thread should be renamed--the newly renovated La Hacienda Hills restaurant--the worst restaurant in the villages, now that Guy Fieri's is closed

So that is why Glenview has gone downhill. I used to love to go there, now it is very disappointing. They let go all of their great servers too. What else did they buy? Hacienda, World of Beer,(2) Glenview and Mallory? Or is Mallory the same?

What with the group that owns the other bunch of CC's south of 466A, things in The Villages foodwise don't look like they will change for the better. Thank heavens for Cane Garden. I see the Lighthouse not quite as good as it was. Some of our favorites are gone from the menu.. The Morses are the best people to run Restaurants here. I wish they still did.

I know it isn't like me to bash stuff here, but we had some decent stuff going on when we moved here ten years ago.

Really? According to the Daily Sun, there are more than 130 culinary establishments in The Villages.

Yes, what is a culinary establishment? Any joint that serve what they consider as food is a culinary establishment-- people stop kidding yourselves --we are getting short changed as far as restaurants in TV 's are concerned--

At 120K population we deserve better, there are lots of "establishments to serve the lower niches here"--how about something above the mediocre

Nice summary - My group of golfers play three times per week and follow up with HH (happy hour) at one of the country clubs. Our favorites are down to two out of 12 now, Arnold and Tierra Del Sol. We boycotted the FMK group several years ago. We used to frequent Katie Belles all the time. It was our favorite. OB was great with the Tiki Bar and daily entertainment. We take turns going to each other homes often now. Probably us contributing to the rate hikes by not being the patrons we used to be. What more can I say. It's not a democracy here and we knew it going in.
