Is it a bar? Is it a cafe? It's both (!)with live music to boot on a Sunday morning. Brunch here is not a buffet but regular menu items .....I had the Eggs Sardou which was two poached eggs on a crab filled half artichoke 😜. Salad, tiny toast and hash browns completed this hearty meal. Delicious! I had iced... More

Zydeco Grille is a great eatery in Placida Florida. We have been their a few times, while visiting friends and have enjoyed it each time. A great Cajun menu gave us tasty dishes big enough to share. They have music too. Country on Tuesday night and Zydeco on Friday night.

Seated at 7:15. Waitress flagged down at 7:30 to get a drink. Ordered at 7:45 with waitress again flagged down. Dinner served 45 minutes later. 10:00 out. Worst service ever for truly mediocre food.

Service was terrible! We went on a Saturday night and the restaurant was not busy. The waitress forgot to bring us bread and we had to waive her down several times to get her attention. We then needed drink refills and again had to waive her down. After an hour wait we asked when our food would be out and... More

We went here for Valentine's dinner. The food was good, but service was spotty. We had several wait staff going back and forth, and the no one ever checked on us. We didnt have reservations, but as the restaurant was fairly empty, we didnt think it would be a problem. We were seated at a 'high top". Maybe our seating... More

Made reservations for dinner. We were seated at one of the two person small tables that are on the corners of the walkway. Got bumped twice by wait staff so each time I moved closer to the table & was finally up against it. No more bumps. Service was a bit slow but the food was worth the wait. Crab... More

The food was good with unique flavor. The menu has a variety. Portions are average but enough. They are a little pricey though.

Everyone's in a big hurry these days. When we walked into this place I just knew things were laid back so to speak. Not to busy for a lunchtime crowd, but as I had figured from watching the orders come out and then tasted ours I learned from our waitress Kim, every order is prepared from scratch. So kick back...

I'm a rib-eye eater, I've ordered them from several local restaurants, some good, some so-so and I've even ordered them here with okay results. But this last weeks was way over the top... one of the best I've ever had, melt in your mouth.

After reading the reviews we almost didn't go here, especially considering it was a Sat. evening in Jan! But, we had reservations so decided to give it a go. We were seated right away, there was a varied beer list, I tried the Circa 1926 which I enjoyed, a fruity wheat. My husband and friends also tried a variety of... More
