We were given a great recommend from a local after a day of kayaking. We really enjoyed our meal. Reasonable prices, great food and staff were on the ball.

The food was very good. The service a little slow but overall a good experience. Outdoor seating was really nice and the band was a definite plus!

Ate there twice on our three day visit. Good good and friendly staff. Had a bit of a wait Friday because of crowd and popular band, but we weren't in a hurry and just enjoyed the atmosphere

Colby was our server and she was amazing! Everything was on point from the food, to the drinks, to the service. The atmosphere is great! Colby is a rockstar! Wish we lived here to come back on a regular.

We enjoyed Ginnie Springs and decided to stop for dinner before heading back to Orlando. The staff was wonderful as were their recommendations! Above what you'd expect - and the wine on Thursdays is 1/2 OFF / bottle! Can't beat that! Loved the atmosphere - both inside and in the back outside.. You definitely cannot go wrong here!

We enjoyed our Happy Hour beverages and ordered Chicken Florentine from a special... More

I own a river house by here. Threat your friends to a great restaurant. Great food and good ambiance . Everyone I have brought here loves it. Sometimes they have a live band to enjoy. I always prefer to eat outside and enjoy the nice weather. I truly recommend this restaurant!

How about everything. Never had a bad experience here. Choose inside in the rustic charm or enjoy the great Florida weather and listen to music on the patio. One of a kind pairings on the menu with your favorite beverage. Even in less than perfect weather the patio has shelter and umbrellas. Outside bar for tasty wet offerings. Come on... More

Came to Great Outdoors after a day at Ginnie Springs thanks to it's awesome reviews here on Trip Advisor. It didn't disappoint! We all loved our cocktails, but my friend's Blueberry Lemonade was by far the best one. The bread was delicious, and I really appreciated the honey butter. We had the Nachos for an appetizer and, uhm, wow. They... More

We heard this was a great place to eat so our group had lunch here. The dinner menu had some great choices, such as low country boil but the lunch menu was very limited. The food was ok. The service was lacking, finally served myself water a couple of times. Hello, it was 90's outside. The music was so loud... More
