A friend introduced me to this place tucked away in Downtown Sanford. Walking in, I had no idea what to expect, but boy was I surprised. There are not too many words needed for this place. It checked off every major box for a great experience. The staff was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. The food was on par... More

One of our favorite places to visit. Service and food never disappoint. The best fish tacos. (Pictured) The best outside dining in cool weather. Shrimp and grits are great. We love downtown and it is one of our favorite restaurants to eat.

The Breezeway Restaurant and Bar, located in Historic downtown Sanford, is an excellent place to take a brake and enjoy eating, lunch, brunch or dinner. The outside dining area (they also offer inside seating), is perfect for listening to live music while eating and see passerby go around town. Their menu offers Angus steak and fresh Florida seafood. Their appetizers... More

Just had drinks and appetizers so hard to comment on much beyond the atmosphere and service. Both were top notch. Enjoyed the calamari.

Had a great meal here while listening to the fun karaoke singers. It was great that the music spanned all the decades and we had fun trying to remember who actually sang the song originally. We ate outside which was a nice option and the service was great. The meals are good sized portions so we split a meal and... More

This is a historic district little gem! Great food, always great service and usually live music. You can sit indoors or sit outside and dine at the bar or one of the many tables in the beautiful breezeway which allows you to take in the breeze but also stay covered. Our last visit was on Friday which was a very... More

Went for dinner and drinks with another couple. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The food is very good and affordable. Watch out for the specials as they are usually very good. We like to eat inside, which is very small area, but there is plenty of room in the breezeway outside where the music plays on weekends. Nice... More

Blue cheese burger. All that needs to be said. The absolute best and their fries are yummy too. The pricing is a bit up there. The service is usually great. And their sweet tea Is pretty close to perfect.

The setting is ideal - open space between 2 buildings, which allows for a cozy outdoor feeling while being sheltered from the elements - an actual "breezeway". It is more conducive for an evening when you have nothing else to do. When we go to downtown Sanford, it's usually to grab a bite for dinner before taking in a show... More
