[ Fine Dining in Polk County ]

Polk County is home to many fine restaurants, ranging from five-star to fast food. The world-famous Chalet Suzanne is well known for its wide variety of soups, exported to gourmet shops around the globe. This world-famous country inn, located in Lake Wales, offers unique overnight accommodations and a private airstrip, as well as fine dining in a charming, old-world atmosphere.

Local gourmands in the know flock to the tables of Vinton's New Orleans, located in Downtown Lake Wales' historic district. Marvelous Mediterranean Revival architecture with hand-lain ceramic tile walls and floors set the mood for this evening out. French and Cajun recipes from the bayou country of Louisiana, served by candle light, delight the critical palate. An award-winning wine list, and award-winning desserts, complete the feast.

The exclusive community of Highland Park, located just south of Lake Wales on the Scenic Highway, is home to the scintillating offerings of Lekarica Restaurant. Creative American and continental recipes produce a facinating range of palate-pleasing dishes. The restaurant is located in the historic Highland Park Inn, until recently a private facility, which offers a dramatic view of Lake Easy, adjacent to the Highland Park Hills Golf Course.

Another traditionally-popular restaurant is LaMond's in Winter Haven. Owned and operated by the LaMond family for over 40 years, they provide high quality food at very reasonable prices. LaMond's also boasts a full lounge for festive gatherings. When you're there, make sure you try their popular chicken wings while admiring the many period decorations on the walls.

Christie's Sundown Restaurant also has a long tradition of quality in Winter Haven. Christie's has a very popular disco as well as dining in an intimate and quiet atmosphere. Their food is of the highest quality, and the prime rib is some of the best around. Christie's is also open for lunch.

In addition to many fine local restaurants, there are a number of national and regional chains with locations throughout the county, including Red Lobster, Olive Garden Italian, Shells Seafood, Garfield's, Bennigan's, and Chili's.
