Subzero Nitrogen Ice Cream
Location: Key Largo, Fl
This place is crazy cool! The staff are friendly and fun to talk to, and the process of making this ice cream with nitrogen is fascinating. They prepare it right there in front of you and add in whatever toppings you’d prefer. The ice cream is very tasty and delicious, too. Oh, if you don’t eat ice cream, they have frozen yogurt as well they prepare the same way. What a fun treat!

The Fish House
Location: Key Largo, Fl
The atmosphere here is really cool. You feel like you’ve just entered a dockside restaurant; even thought, you’re right in the middle of Key Largo. The menu is pretty extensive on fish items, and everything we had was delicious.
Our party ordered red fish, hog fish, blackened Mahi, chicken fingers and fries. The tea isn’t sweetened, as is usual in the Keys; so, just go ahead and order water with lemon or a coke. All the fish tastes fresh, and the wait staff are pretty friendly. We encountered one who was not so much, but she only seated us; so, we got beyond it pretty quick. We dis have their key lime pie for dessert, but I’ve had better elsewhere.
If we’re ever back in the Keys, this will probably be in our top 10 restaurants from which to choose. Here’s the website.
Papa Jack’s Country Kitchen
Location: Flowery Branch, Ga
We’ve been to Papa Jack’s twice. The atmosphere is comfy and homey-like. They’ve just recently moved to a new location in Flowery Branch. Everything is nice and clean, free of clutter, trash and that time-layed grease to which many local restaurants fall victim.
The food on the first visit was amazing. We got veggies, salad bar, burgers and chicken fingers. Everything was delicious. They have a great salad bar, and all menu items are served fresh and cafeteria style. There are mostly tables and chairs for seating, but a few booths are available in the first room. They have great southern sweet tea, and the wait staff have a true Southern hospitality charm.
Our second visit was not as great as the first, but I’m hoping maybe it was just the time of day. Sometimes, cafeteria style restaurants can get hit with the “overheated, sitting too long” menu items. So, we’ll probably try them again, and I’ve been told by many to try their breakfast on Saturdays. They say the biscuits and the pancakes are to die for! Hmmm, I think I’m getting hungry. Maybe I’ll try them this weekend…

Location: Gainesville, Ga
Luna’s is great for a nice, romantic lunch or dinner, business meeting or any family gathering. It is white tablecloths and assorted silverware type settings; so, choose accordingly, but I do believe you’d enjoy it. My husband and I went here for lunch, and although, we don’t exactly start the day thinking, “oh, we’ll go have a romantic lunch date today,” we were on a lunch date, and we did feel romantic!
As you can tell from the pics, the presentation is beautiful. (The first pic above is the oil dip for the delicious bread they bring before the meal.) The shrimp and grits were amazing, and the burger was incredible! The key lime pie was absolutely delicious. It tastes a lot like the key lime we get at our favorite restaurant in Florida, and I think might know where they get it. 😉
The waiter was great and the restaurant was almost empty; so, we felt like we had the place to ourselves. We really enjoyed our lunch and will be back.
