The Floridian Classic Southern Dining

The Breakdown

96
With inside and outside seating. the restaurant is deceivingly large. The nights I went it was packed with happy, satisfied diners. All-star Southern classics like Fried Green Tomatoes, Biscuits and Jelly, and something called Not Your Mamma's Meatloaf Sandwich make for a very interesting menu.
Cleanliness 95%
Friendliness 95%
Deliciousness 100%
Pros
Classic southern comfort food menu, with some new twists on old favorites. Portions were quite large so you better bring your appetite.
Cons
We sat outside when we ate so I did not get the chance to check out the inside much.

Comfort food taken to a new level

OK, I won’t make you wait, I’ll get right to it. I had the Summertime Fried Chicken Sandwich that was out of this world. It was made up of, and I quote,  “Citrus-herb marinated chicken breast, fried and stacked on ciabatta with lemon aioli and a summer ‘slaw’ of lightly pickled green beans, carrots and cabbage tossed with gingered buttermilk herb, and a drizzle of hot-sauce honey. Wowza. Served with choice of roasted potatoes OR a tossed salad with fancy slaw, pecans, house ricotta and peaches.”

Yowza. And you know it was almost more than I could finish. Portions at The Floridian are very generous. The whole place had a very laid-back vibe, with some people showing up dressed quite nicely, and others (like yours truly) looking like they just came off the beach. Everyone seemed right at home.

I enjoyed it so much I came back a week later and had the meatloaf. That I was unable to finish, but it was amazing.
