My spouse and I went to the Jacaranda on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant is located just off the hotel's lobby. Parking in the rear of the hotel. Remember that on Sunday they only serve the buffet from 11 AM until 2 PM and do not have a Dinner seating. Mon to Fri they have lunch from 11 to 2... More

They do change some items each day. Make sure it is open before you go. Lunch during the week and Sunday.. Evening meals are seasonal. Very good dollar... More

Living in the area, we have frequented the Jacaranda on several occasions. Character of this establishment is really neat with "history" surrounding you the moment you walk in to the lobby. The restaurant only serves lunch and weekend buffets during summer months but do not let that deter you. EXCELLENT sandwiches at lunch coupled with pleasant service makes this a... More

The Hotel Jacaranda is a great place. It is a historical place. The balcony over looking Avon Park is nice to relax on. The food is very good.

We just returned from a Florida road trip and spent one night at the Hotel Jacaranda. This hotel has changed very little since its 1920 beginning. It is filled with old world charm and the room was comfortable and perfect for a short stay. We called in the morning and reserved a room with a king bed at a very... More

Went with friends after church. Food is average for a buffet, but a little pricey. I had heard a lot of positive comments, so was disappointed in overall food. The deserts, however were outstanding.

I was so excited to try this brunch and expected what one normally finds for brunch - a combination of breakfast and lunch choices. But there were no breakfast choices. I adored the hotel and dining room but couldn't eat many entrees because most items contained gluten and/or dairy. I enjoyed the salad bar, the chicken salad was very good... More

Historic Hotel Jacaranda, open since 1926, in the charming central Florida town of Avon Park is well worth a visit, if just for the lovely old dining room and the great food. We have Sunday lunch at the hotel at least once a month. White table cloths, warm hospitality from the staff and a beautiful and tasty buffet of fried... More

We were vacationing nearby. We went at 11:15 on Sunday for the Grand Buffet. We arrived and told the hostess we did not have a reservation (she told us that we should have had one since it was the busy season). But she said she could get us a table but she had reservations for 12:00 so we had to... More
