Default Recommendation for nice restaurant

Hi, we are new to The Villages and we already have found some wonderful places to dine. However, we have some friends visiting next weekend. They are long-time Florida residents, but they've never been to The Villages. They are considering looking at homes here. We'd like to take them to lunch to a nice place that shows off The Villages. We are considering a Country Club, but we haven't had a chance yet to visit them. Any recommendations for a good place to show off our hometown? Thanks. Mike

If your friends are golfers they may like sitting outside at any CC watching a bit of golf going on. All CC are nice but we are partial to Belle Glade (lamb shanks!)since it is near our home. Some CC's are more casual than others too. Bonifay is great when they have their breakfast buffet. I think Mallory is great for the view and pizza - it is a more casual place IMO. Chop house is very nice - on the pricey side for some who live here. Blue Fin is great too. I could go on and on.

Thank you to everyone for your suggestions. Time for dumb question #1.... Is it simply a matter of calling the CC and making a reservation, or is there some Villages-specific process? Thanks again.

There is no Villages specific process. The country clubs are open to the public, but I am not sure they will all take a reservation. You should know that the country clubs tend to be noisy, and they are not as upscale as you may think.

I you want upscale, Chop House is a great choice.

You can do the same thing at Chop House which is also in Lake Sumter Landing.

Our 2 favorites are Glenview and Belle Glade (sit outside). We generally just stop in without reservations but they all take them.
