- 19/98 Grille (2022 N. Young Blvd (Winn Dixie shopping center in Chiefland) don’t trust your gps if you just type in the name as this restaurant has moved in 2021. The original owners were just up the street and made a name for themselves as one on the top 5 best hidden restaurants in Florida. They retired in 2020, but a younger generation has reopened and it’s worth a stop on the way back from Manatee or Fanning Springs. A wide variety of foods and don’t miss the zucchini fries, but don’t go for the view it is just in a shopping center.
Tiki bar at Sea Hag marina: ok so they don’t serve food, but it is a great spot to grab a drink and watch the boats come in for the afternoon. Be sure you check out the top deck you get to from the side stairs past the bait tanks. Also, often you might catch a food truck in the parking lot. If you see the fried Oreo truck, pull in and order one for us!
