“Ok”

Carmichael's Restaurant
Ranked #362 of 540 Restaurants in Ocala
Price range: USD 10 - USD 24
Description: When people think of Ocala, FL two things come to mind, horses and Silver Springs. Big “Ed” Carmichael was one of the first business owners to market Silver Springs as a tourist attraction. His dedication to bringing high quality entertainment and customer experience inspired Ken to contact Ed’s daughter Susan Carmichael and son Ned Carmichael to receive permission to use the family name. ​ ​Carmichael’s was open in the Spring of 1986 with a dedication to quality food, family-friendly atmosphere, and affordable pricing. “We wanted to create a restaurant that everyone would feel at home” said Ken. Today, Carmichael’s intends to not only live up to that standard, but bring it to a new level with our team of dedicated professionals with more than 40 years of hospitality experience. Our flagship restaurant is located at 3105 NE Silver Springs Blvd, just minutes away from downtown Ocala.

Ronald, we thank you for visiting us when we were still in our soft-opening phase and working out the kinks with our menu and service. Now that we've been open for a few months, we'd really love to have you back to enjoy some steak and orange rolls!

My husband and I decided to try them since it was a new resturant. We ordered the Hummus appetizer it came with veges and naan bread, we wanted double bread and no veges, they charged us an extra 2 bucks, when it came out there were only 8 pieces, small ones st that, would of hated to see what the regular order was. I ordered the chicken alfredo, it was good but it was served without any bread, like garlic...my husband ordered a shrimp dish, the shrimp were huge, but again served with no bread for dipping into the sauces. Our bill with tip was $55 and that was with no drinks because we both had water...if I'm going to spend that kind of money I'm heading to Olive Garden. Heck we could of had a steak at Longhorns for that price. Needless to say we won't be going back.

@tking66 we're sorry to hear that your experience with us wasn't as great as you hoped. We've worked hard on making things better since we opened back in the beginning of April. Carmichael's has always prided itself on being a local, amily owned restaurant here in Ocala. We source local and fresh ingredients for every meal, which we aim to have reflected in the quality of food and experience. Please let us know what it would take for us to get you back at Carmichael's!
