Since 1948, Red Wing Restaurant has furnished the denizens of Groveland with fresh game, griddle favorites, and other comfort-inducing comestibles in a quaint, country setting. Breakfast plates showcase tasty twists on egg-based favorites such as the Hunter’s omelet, which features wild-game sausage, three large eggs, and a savory superabundance of onions, mushrooms, peppers, and cheese ($9.99). At lunchtime, diners indulge on a bevy of the Orlando Sentinel’s critics' choice burgers, such as the 8-ounce Cowboy burger, grilled to sizzling succulence before being slathered in barbecue sauce and onion rings and smuggled into rawhide chaps ($8.29).
Dinner delights with an amalgam of hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood selections. The Green Swamp combo combines the unique deliciousness of fresh catfish, frog legs, and gator tail ($17.99) and earthbound eats bear scrumptious samplings of grilled duck breast drizzled in a balsamic-fig reduction ($19.99) and platters piled high with fried or grilled quail ($18.99). Steak satiation is supplied by hand-cut, 14- to 15-ounce Angus rib-eyes, aged 21 days to improve their tenderness and extensive knowledge of wine pairings ($22.99).
Stuffed birds and other animal-themed regalia imbue a hunting-lodge ambiance, perched upon paneled walls and above doorways bearing themes such as “pheasant room” and “boar room.” A petting zoo located just outdoors accommodates small and large fur-covered friends inviting customers to coddle and exchange chili recipes.
Red Wing Restaurant
In 1948, Charles McMillan opened the doors to the home he had built of wood and stone, offering visitors plates of fine, country-style cooking under the name Red Wing Restaurant. Today, this one-time rural residence retains its quaint charm with taxidermied décor—a plethora of birds and animals striking eternal poses against a backdrop of vertical wood paneling. Behind this façade, skilled chefs country-fry steaks they've cut by hand or prepare meals from whatever wild game their favorite hunter might have brought them
