“Superior Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

We stayed at the Kenilworth Lodge for three days, and rather than ramble around Sebring, we chose to walk next door to the Palm Diner (previously Lakeview Restaurant & Lounge). The first day was with a large group. On the second day, it was just the two of us. On the third day, the owner recognized us and came over to greet us. He was closely followed by the waitress who had served us the day before. She, too, remembered us, and actually remembered what she had served.

It is clear from the interactions that occur in the restaurant that the owner and staff have a lot of regular customers.

The restaurant is very warm and personal. The menu is varied and there are a number of pleasantly different offerings (such as the crab stuffed mushroom appetizer), and the quality is good. And it's inexpensive! It's a pleasant and safe change of pace from the franchise restaurants further out of town.

“Large lunch selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2013

The new owners have kept some of the best on the menu. Sandwiches are large. Had liver & onions with mashed&gravy. Liver was very tender not like a lot of places. Serving was more than adequate. Nearby patrons complained of no chicken with their dumplings.

“Lakeview restaurant & lounge is now called "The Palm diner. It's still the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2012

My husband I have recently retired to sebring florida. We like the restaurants in the area, but our favorite is the Palm Diner and Back alley Bar & Grill. I am on a special diet, but I can always find healthy choices. They serve great food, at decent prices. The portion is also very large. If you are a small eater, be prepared to ask for a take home box. breakfast at $1.99 gets you 2 eggs anyway you like it, toast and home fries. (best home fries and pancakes in sebring. They make great soups, My favorites, the Ham & bean, lentil, and split pea. My husband likes the Maryland crab soup. His favorite dish, the chicken parmesan. they have a large menu of items.The staff is friendly and attentive. You have to visit the Back Alley and Grill. Manic Monday: $1 tacos, $4 Burger, $5 gyros. Tuesday is Ladies nite: $1 drafts-$2 wine -2 for 1 Margaritas. Wdnesday: 45 cents wings all day. THURS: Karaoke: FRI: $5 FISH A& chips,(LIVE MUSIC. Island Night: Burger & Beer $5. wings 45 cts. LIVE music. SUN: 1/2 price appetizers all day. Karaoke 6-9 pm. LIVE MUSIC IS SUPPLIED BY GARY OLIVER on keyboard.

Very satisfied customers.

“Breakfast a must!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

We have been to Lakeview several times for breakfast and always have wonderful food. I think they have the best pancakes I have ever eaten! Prices and service are also very good, the last time we were there we had a waitress name Kathy (or Cathy), who was very attentive and polite. This is a great breakfast choice, we are going to go back and try it for lunch.
