Thumbs down Restaurant Review

Overall I think the restaurants in The Villages are absolutely terrible. Can't even say I have a favorite. Bonefish is the closest to Good. Just tried the Mission BBQ and it was terrible. So even the new restaurants are bad. Guess that's why we usually go outside the bubble for dinner.

We must have different definitions of "Restaurant Review"

We have not been out to dinner (except for take-out) since February. However, before covid our regulars were Sakura, VKI, Bonefish, Blue Fin, Chop House, and Ay Jalisco. They are all pretty good.

What is your definition of a “good” restaurant? Also, Mission BBQ is “outside the bubble”. So how far out are you going?

If one person got ill would not even have mentioned it but when 2 that is a cause of concern.

Have been eating out 2-3 times a week the whole year, either takeout, or when dine in was available. Bonefish has never been a favorite, not sure OP if you are looking for restaurants in the Bonefish category, there is a plethora of chain restaurants in TV. Since you didn’t give reasons for why food was not to your liking, it’s hard to give you recommendations

We think we have found a good number of restaurants to our liking in the eight months we have been here.

Do not understand people saying TV is full of substandard eateries

Not substandard, average. Nothing to get excited about, or say that’s the best meal I have ever had. Many come from areas that have restaurants with great chefs. Doesn’t mean it’s super expensive, just well prepared food, not a chain restaurant
