I have written almost 400 reviews and I do not rate "excellent" often...this charming cafe is an exception! Located in a historic former bank building, this intimate spot serves lunch and dinner and we were there on a crowded Saturday night to sample homemade Southern specialties...and special they are! The "Shore 'Nuff Seafood Platter" was a taste feast we split...shrimp/catfish/crab... More

Take the Wildwood exit and straight into Wildwood you will find this wonderful southern restaurant in a historic bank building. Being a Southern gal,I love their fried green tomatoes and ALL the mile high cakes and deserts! I have never had a bad meal there. The wait can be long as the restaurant is small. Go for a late lunch... More

I had heard about The Cotillion Cafe from several people, and so on a trip to North Florida I made plans to stop in for lunch. Be prepared to wait for a table if it is peak lunch time. The place is antique-store charming and the service was friendly. I had the Fried Green Tomatoes and the Chicken & Waffles.... More

I had heard soooooooo many things about this restaurant & wanted to try it. I was not overly impressed with the server's - kind of rude. The food was good but just not what I had thought it would be. Personally it's not my type of place and it's very small.

We have been admiring this place from afar for a while, and were even more impressed when we finally stopped in for lunch. This place is so charming. The service was wonderful. Everything on the menu sounded so great, it was hard to choose, but we were both really pleased with our choices (crab cake & chicken salad sandwiches). The... More

Sadly disappointing. We reserved for 7.30 and were seated at 8.10. Not a good start Soup and salad were excellent. My pulled pork platter was labelled as gluten free and came with breaded onion rings. The waiter took it away when I questioned it. My friend had chicken pot pie. The chicken was served in a gravy boat with a... More

Very good southern home cooking. Portions are big and food tends to be "heavy" but that's the way it's supposed to be! Try the fried green tomatoes, especially if you've never had them before. Wonderful desserts. We've been here a number of times because we're locals and like to bring our out of town guests here for a different experience.... More
