Any recommendations in the Plant City Area?

Visiting family. Mostly seems like chains. Would love any sort of great food for dinner.

  1. Tampa is at most 20 miles away and offers loads of options. Could you escape for an evening?

    1. None of these are fine dining but I like Chancy's Catfish Shack, First Choice BBQ, Fred's Market and the amazing strawberry shortcake at Parkesdale Farm Market.

        A couple I forgot are Maryland Fried Chicken and Linda's Crab Shack for great deviled crabs.

      2. How about Red Rose Dining room? I keep seeing the Bay News 9 commercials and I'm curious. Is it cheesy and dated?

          It's cheesy and dated yet fun. We went there for sunday brunch using a coupon that was in our Brighthouse bill for buy one get one free. It was around Christmas and they had live music and a real Santa. You can tell that it's the "fancy" place in the area.
