Starke Florida restaurants, pubs and bars, and nearby Waldo establishments are all within 15 minutes of our North Central Florida Inn and offer a wide variety of good food. You can spend a day in nearby Gainesville visiting shops, museums, theaters, and exploring the surrounding area, then head back towards the B&B for a bite to eat in Waldo or Starke.
Back at the Inn and lake you can take a leisurely stroll through the open fields, fish off the pier, or curl up with a good book in the swing. It’s always relaxing to watch the sunset from one of the back porch rocking chairs, or just lounge on the dock.
Starke and nearby Waldo are home to several fast food chain restaurants including: McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Subway, Ihop, Hardees and others, but for the purpose of showing our guests what else our area has to offer, we’ll be focusing this post on other dining establishments. Enjoy!
