My mistake we like Cane also. A bit quirky sometimes getting past the lady at the door. She says if I need the table (outside) for dinner you will have to leave. 16 - 20 guys for drinks and she thinks there is more profit in dinner ? I smile and say most certainly mam. Shucks she is just chicken to say I'm afraid of you boys getting rowdy and upsetting the dinner crowd.

They are all owned by the developer. Country Clubs, restaurants, shops etc. The developer then grants a lease to the concessionaire of developer's sole choice. You and I have no input to that process - outside of CDD's. But then again it all belongs to the developer and shame on you if you did not do due diligence before moving here. The golden rule - he who has the gold makes the rules.

You hear correctly. We used to love Glenview - the food was good, not great, but the ambience was our favorite. A real old money country club feel. The ambience is still great, the food not worth the effort.

It is time we make an effort to stop supporting these CRAP country clubs posing as country club restaurants--pass the word on to your neighbor/friends as to which restaurants that deserve to be put out of business

For the most effect and well deserved of a boycott start with the FMK group (Evans Prairie, Belle Glade, Bonifay, Orange Blossom). Basically same menu at all four places and a steady rise in prices since ownership. Remember the old customer loyalty cards? Me thinks the ownership was not so loyal. When our group of golfers did happy hour (no more) at these four establishments the bill was 2x - 3x over Cane and Arnold. Oh and the food at Cane and Arnold is heads above these places.

all the food of the above group comes from Gordon Food Services, its boil in the bag & microwavable--the kitchens in the above restaurants are way too small to have a real cook line--these places are good for draft beers and cocktails made from well booze-
