Right off Highway 27 in Clermont, Florida is a wonderful place to eat and have a few drinks. The place is called The Crooked Spoon Gastropub.
According to their website and Facebook page this restaurant / bar was started by Chef Saelg in August of 2013. This was after operating a beloved Orlando Food Truck for 3 years. The restaurant is located adjacent to Clermont’s historic Citrus Tower with Chef Saleg’s foodie favorites as well as an expanded menu with weekly specials and a wonderful Sunday Brunch.
The Gastropub is similar to a sports bar with TVs located through out and plenty of tables for a large crowd.
In all the times we have gone to eat here and enjoy a few drinks, we have never been disappointed. In addition, every member of the staff has gone out of their way to be friendly and accommodating.
Not too far on the NorthWest side of Orlando is a town called Clermont. In that town is a wonderful local vineyard. That vineyard is Lakeridge Winery.
It is a great place to spend a weekend afternoon. Throughout the year the winery has all sorts of mini festivals. This past weekend was Wine Fest 2019.
There is music, food vendors, and craft vendors. The food is very good. You can also purchase beer and wine. Of course the wine is all from the vineyard.
In addition, you can go on a wine tasting tour of the wines they produce at the vineyard. It is a great way to try all their wines and find the perfect one for your palate.
One of the nicest things they have at the winery is their upstairs wine bar for a small snack and a glass or two of wine. There is even entertainment in the wine bar!
The Lakeridge Winery has won many awards for their wine. So stop by and enjoy a glass or come on by to enjoy one of their many festivals.
