A group of 15 stopped in for lunch at the Genuine Bistro in Debary and was treated to some awesome food and service. There was not a complaint among us and most everyone had a different order. The proportions were more than adequate and not an order was mixed up. I can vouch for the rack of lamb, not only... More

I love supporting local business. The atmosphere is friendly, the servers attentive, but the food is just plain mediocre. Enjoy the company and commraderie but don't go for the food.

Wife and I went for dinner. She was in the mood for a steak, and we chose this place because we haven't been her before. They have an outside porch, but the place is on a busy highway, plus they had a band playing, so we went inside because I wanted a bit more quiet. Well, it's not exactly quiet... More

Delicious food, GREAT Band - PENTA playing, good service! The manager apparently is a bit nervous for the patrons when the band was playing...they sounded fine and if people wanted a quiet venue there are plenty to choose from within a five mile radius. We enjoyed the liveliness and the food was stellar!
