Southern / Soul Food Restaurant

“This is one of the most popular spots in Brooksville. They serve breakfast and lunch. The lunch selections include hamburgers, seafood, salads and more. They also have a great beer selection. Stop by their Tap Room, located right next door for a great selection of Florida brews. Don't be intimidated if you see a line waiting to get in, it is worth the wait. ”

“The Tap Room is not a brewery but instead offers a great selection of beers from Florida Breweries. They also offer a selection of wine and canned/bottled beers as well. We love their sangria which often includes local flavors such as kumquat. There is often live entertainment on the porch with fun activities such as darts, giant jenga and more. The now offer brick oven pizzas that are really delicious as well as grilled wings, mullet dip and a few other items. If you are there around lunch time you can go next door to their restaurant, Florida Cracker Kitchen for some of the tastiest cooking in town. Thursday night is ladies night and they often host Tap Takeovers where the brewery comes out and takes over. ”
