Nice small town atmosphere with welcoming owner and staff. Wide and innovative range of items on the menu from burgers to steaks. I had the prime rib Ruben which was excellent and my husband had a very good burger. Right across the street from the Jacaranda Hotel.

Directly across from the Hotel Jacaranda where we stayed, this downtown establishment is run by a very good chef with imagination and customer service as a key. Helen had a grilled romaine heart salad topped with shrimp and balsamic reduction that was very very good. I had the seafood ravioli that I would not recommend, but it wasn't awful. We... More

Was impressed with the home feel of the restaurant. From the time we walked in we were welcomed, live music was tasteful but not loud or overbearing, staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu and drinks. We split a a cheese steak and fries that was very enjoyable, We will be back with our friends to show them... More

Nice interior although the brick walls do make for noisy acoustics!! Food (especially steak) is quite good although some may perceive prices to be a bit high. Beer/wine available but no hard booze. Friendly staff and food quality will have us returning.

Thanks a pile for taking the time to review!!! About the liquor... We do carry top brands on the other side of the bar from the beer taps.... We've had a full license for about 8 months now and it does well. (Thank goodness!! lol). Thanks again, and come see us for a cocktail! More

I love the unique coziness of this place and was so glad to come in and find a full bar! I really enjoyed hearing the duo M Squared playing classic rock music and everyone else seemed to also. My friends were very impressed with the food: a range from the exquisite ahi appetizer to the walleye special with crazy fries.... More

18 East is a great atmusphere. It has good food and can be a lot of fun. I feel that this is more of a singles/ Couples type of place. It can be a little loud at times, but still it usually because everyone is having such fun.

The service was fast and the food was good, but the bar noise made it nearly impossible to talk to our friends. Therefore we have never returned. Too bad because the food was unusual And very tasty, a little high priced but not too much.

Actually Two.... Noise, noise, noise. From the Bar area. Part of which was the Boss, Dave who was tending the bar plus some loaded guys. We went ther to eat, not to listen to a bunch of drunks. And this was only 5 pm. If you want to belly up to a bar, this is just the spot. Enjoying a... More

They had a mediocre musician performing who despite repeated requests did not turn down the volume. The owner seemed incapable of managing the situation. Server could not hear to take orders and our family could not converse. It was 7pm on a weekday. The food was very good but seemed like pub food. But not many choices in Avon Park.

This bar restaurant is trying to be too many things to too many people. The food was excellent. The service was mixed. Our bottle of wine arrived at the table opened with the cork popped back in, no tasting was offered. In my mind this is a completely unacceptable protocol. Fortunately the bottle was fine, but for an establishment to... More

So sorry our small town establishment didn't fulfill your expectations. We are trying to bring a little something different to our little spot on the map, and obviously didn't meet your criteria for a good spot to eat.
