The staff is always friendly. The food is always cooked perfectly. What more could you ask for? Great atmosphere and plenty of awesome vintage and antiques to gaze at while eating. Also, most of what you see in the building is able to be purchased! One of a kind, for sure! Country dining at its best!

My daughter and myself always love this place. I've been coming here since the 80's. True Florida cooking and Southern Hospitality at its best. The sour orange pie was amazing. Savannah always enjoys her Shirley Temple's. Portions are huge. Hoping to stay in the cabins sometime this summer. And as always we love you Mr Willie Green.

Great service and some Southern Cracker food in a unique atmosphere of Central Florida. Love the blackened catfish over cheese grits and fried green tomatoes. Tried their venison medallions for the first time, and as promised was tender and delicious, not gamey. Willie, the blues singer guitarist adds to make this a special place to go.

About The Yearling Restaurant

A decade after moving to Cross Creek, a "half-wild, backwoods country" where she felt right at home, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings published her Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Yearling, which tells the tale of a boy who adopts a fawn as a pet. It inspired an award-winning film in 1946 and, in 1952, a restaurant just down the road from Marjorie's house. That's where Yearling Restaurant—named one of the best places to eat in Northern Florida by the Orlando Sentinel—still stands today.

Specializing in traditional southern cuisine that captures the spirit of old Florida, the culinary team serves up everything from venison and quail to frog legs, deep-fried clams, and an alligator dish that Ocala Style says is "done right." Meals unfold among Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings memorabilia and the bluesy riffs of Willie Green, who plays tunes daily. Visitors who want even more of the spirit of old Florida but who don't want to buy all the candles required to summon Ponce de Leon's ghost can spend the night in Cross Creek in a restored cottage at The Secret River Lodge.
