This place is ok, but certainly not worth the drive. Uncomfortable seating, nothing really special about the service or the food.

Ask for the happy hour menu. Nice choices but only until 6. They also have daily specials. Their pizza is pretty good to. I enjoy the live... More

The Great Outdoors is a friendly, well managed restaurant that is a central gathering spot for residents of and travelers to High Springs. The menu is varied with meat (including bison) and seafood (including mussels) offerings. Tuesday evening "burger night" is a terrific value, especially coupled with the Happy Hour at the inside tavern. And, the blue cheese homemade potato... More

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!

For Mothers Day I was hoping to visit a unique place/town and have lunch in a special restaurant......and i did both. The Great Outdoors Restaurant was truly lovely, inviting, and the food varied and delicious. At our request we sat outside and were seated in 10 minutes. We enjoyed our Happy Hour beverages and ordered Chicken Florentine from a special... More
