If you don't mind spending big money for a soup/salad with a drink. Had lunch there for a celebration of 75th birthday of a girl friend. There was 11 of us and each person put in $35.00 dollars for a 1/2 salad & soup and 1 specialty drink that included the tip as well.

The place itself was very nice and all tables had beautiful china settings. Everyone settings was a different print. I was more impress with the building and location over the food. The view from where we sat was over looking the lake.

The birthday gal received their Banana Cream Pie and we all had a bit or two. It was super large piece.

I would say try it once and make your on opinion if you would go back again. It's a place to celebration and special occasion than just stop in to have lunch or dinner.

Celebrated our Anniversary tonight at The Rose Plantation. The atmosphere, the service and the food were outstanding. Our waitress, Jackie, suggested a great wine, and gave us time to enjoy a glass before ordering. Highly recommend this restaurant!

All five people at our table ordered different dishes. Everyone was more than satisfied with the quality and taste and preparation of the food I ordered duck. It was crisp on the outside juicy on the inside. It was one of the best duck dishes I have ever had. We asked the waitress if anyone had mentioned that the carrots in vegetable special of the day were rather salty. She said know what you would check with the kitchen. When returning to the table she mentioned that the owner agree that the carrots for whatever reason or very salty. To make up for our disappointment. The owner bought desserts for every single person at the table. More than we could ever have expected. Very well want to run and managed restaurant. We will return When back in town.

This was our first visit to the Rose Plantation and certainly will not be our last. From our first arrival until we left the staff was fantastic!

There were 3 in our group we had crab cakes, sea bass and a Delmonico steak. Everything came out perfect.

John our waiter was quite accommodating as was Dennis the bartender. The GM checked on us several times during the course of the evening. This is a place to bookmark for future returns!

Our fifth dinner visit. Great decor and atmosphere, especially after all the noisy, teeshirt crowds at virtually all Villages restaurants. Our server Linda was wonderful, but it's definitely a team serving approach. Expensive relative to Villages chains, but on a par with Mt. Dora and Winter Park's finer restaurants, and large portion sizes. The menu is always offering specials not on the website menu. Corn & crab chowder was delicious and spicy, but a little salty for my taste. Prime Rib & Duck were perfectly cooked, sides were delicious and both of us took home doggy bags.
