My husband and I were vacationing from Michigan and wanted to eat in a locally owned restaurant. The Reececliff Restaurant was the tastiest meal we'd had while in Lakeland. My generous side salad had tomatoes, cheese, egg, and bacon along with the French dressing. The chopped steak was tender with a rich, flavorful onion gravy and the green beans had... More

Everyone in Lakeland visits Reececliff. Home styled delicious "fresh" food. We go often during the week. It is next door to The Hubbell Eye Clinic and a great place to visit before and after your eye appointment. The service and food are always the same...delicious and the taste of home cooking, as it is prepared fresh every day. Terrific for... More

Went there for lunch. Our server obviously did not what to be there. We finally got served by someone else. Went to use bathroom and it was barely usable since it was dirty. We should have left then but had already ordered. We ordered the baked chicken lunch special. The chicken was cold and greasy, the green beans were out... More

Friday evening, 4 cars in the parking lot. Was seated immediately and I noticed on the daily board that the veggie of the day was escalloped... More

Admittedly I don't come to Lakeland as often as I used to, but I had never had the good fortune to visit this establishment before. We were there for a late dinner last night. It's delightful to encounter the traditional Southern "meat and three" and to have everything so incredibly well prepared. The liver and onions was superb, the fried... More

A Lakeland classic. Delicious home cooked meals at a fair price. Very casual, friendly service. Would definitely recommend the chicken and dumplings!

A long standing favorite of Lakelanders, this home spun diner will curl your toes with an amazing assortment of yummy pies. I like to partake in their delicious breakfast. Pictured here is the meat lovers omelet with a side of juicy red tomatoes for a low carb jewel.

During our visit we had fried chicken that was served cold and appeared to have been cooked much earlier in the day. Within two hours after leaving we both became ill. The wait staff appear to have been Denney's originals and just putting in hours. The exterior facelift doen't match the unkept interior and lack of cleanliness inside. Dust/mold covers... More

It was late afternoon and we were hungry as we approached the location of this restaurant. It was pleasant looking, so we decided to try it. It was like an old fashioned diner and very cozy. The menu was varied and looked interesting. We weren't expecting something special with the meals, but we got it. Both of our meals looked... More
