Default Restaurant Reservations

Just wondering if anyone knows why most of the restaurants in the Villages will not take reservations? Where we are from up north, we always make reservations before going out to dinner. Our go to default Villages restaurant is the Bonefish, because they actually take reservations. However, we would like to have more varied options.

Very simple. Because they don't have to. Most are full every night without the hassle of looking at empty tables reserved for no-show's.

Bonefish told me that they actually only reserve 20 percent of the available tables for reservations. The new Bluefin restaurant in Brownwood has started to provide reservations.

Silly me, going ahead and assuming that people are courteous and respectful. When we make a reservation, we always show up and arrive a few minutes early. I guess it's people that make reservations and then don't show up, or bother to call and cancel, that ruin it for everyone else.
