We had the most wonderful brunch this time last year after coming to Lakeland for the "car show" at Lake Mirror. We are returning this year and so thrilled to find your place online. We will be there for Sunday brunch. The only place we'd...More

We use to love coming, the atmosphere is nice. The new menu isn’t a hit, and it’s become over priced!

We went for a quick appetizer and drink. We had the Charcuterie Board and Crispy Brussle Sprouts. Everything was great and I mean, you can't beat a $10 quality charcuterie board. They have two homemade pimento cheese spreads and homemade pickles, which I loved! I...More

Maybe it's unfair to give this place a 3 out of 5 rating. The low rating was due to the service, not the food. But then again, we heard the waitress saying she'd worked there for six years, so if they've been putting up with...More

We decided to have an evening meal at Frescos mainly due to the fact that it was within walking distance of our hotel. It seems to be popular with locals so to me that's always a good start. They have a decent selection of bottled...More
