Looking for a nice place to go for lunch in Lake County, Florida? Lucky for you, there are plenty of options. Here are just a few of my favorites:
- La Hacienda Restaurant at The Mission Inn Resort: you can't go wrong if you visit Howey in the Hills and you stop at La Hacienda Restaurant at The Mission Inn Resort at 10400 County Road 48. Dine inside or outside on the patio overlooking Mission Inn’s beautiful golf course and ponds. Lunch is served daily from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm at La Hacienda. You can order off of their lunch menu (soups, salads, sandwiches, sides, & desserts, plus beverages including coffee, tea, soft drinks, wine, beer, champagne, or cocktails), or indulge in their lunch buffet a menu that changes daily. Adults pay $25 and children 5-12 pay $15 plus tax and gratuity including a beverage.
- Nicker's Clubhouse Restaurant at The Mission Inn Resort: another nice choice for lunch at The Mission Inn Resort is to visit Nicker's Clubhouse Restaurant at 10400 County Road 48. This restaurant is great for golfers and diners alike, and it is right next to The Pro Shop. It overlooks the golf course and the lake providing beautiful views. You can grab a cocktail at the bar before being seated for lunch which is served daily from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm, and there is a daily happy hour from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Lunch options include appetizers, soups, salads, sandwiches, sides, & desserts plus beverages.
- The Brick & Barrel: one of my favorites, they now have two locations: Downtown Leesburg at 209 West Main Street, and Downtown Eustis at 31 East Magnolia Avenue. I've only been to their Leesburg location, and it's high on my list for lunch spots. The bar features craft beer on tap, cocktails, and wine. The great part is the length of their happy hour - it runs from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm daily and it features $3 wells, wines, and domestic drafts. Lunch choices include great appetizers (I love their beer cheese pretzels), flatbreads, handhelds (try the firecracker shrimp tacos), entrees, sides, desserts, and kids' meal choices.
