I've been having lunch and sometimes dinner here for over 30 years. Good people, good general diner food. The baked chicken is especially good (Tuesdays and Saturdays), but they're good in general.

As the longest running restaurant in Lakeland, FL, Reececliff Family Diner is still providing quality service with a down home atmosphere. After more than 75 years of existence, its time to rediscover this rare treasure. How is it that we stay so consistent? Maybe its because our delicious pies have been crafted by the same expert for more than 50 years. Or maybe its because our head chef has been with us for over 40 years. Come and visit us soon and experience a quality diner with a family atmosphere. And don’t forget the pie!
