The fried chicken was out of this world. Light and flakey crust and not greasy. Must be air fried. Kevin is the best waiter prompt service and so kind. The decorations are beautiful. My mom enjoyed celebrating here birthday and would recommend spending your special ocassion here.
Our server was fantastic - the hostesses were welcoming and the food and cocktails were delicious. Great evening .
Last evening may have been the very best meal I have had in an extremely long time. Everything was EXCELLENT!!
Jersey was our server and she was fabulous. She is 5 star all the way.
My only irritation was cell phone use being permitted and I spoke to the manager about that. You have got to post signs and approach guests who are just talking over nonsense. That is what the lobby is for. This is not an inexpensive place and your ambiance suffers when an obnoxious guest decides that they should talk on speaker phone one table away or talk on their phone regardless.
The dress code is tough as you are dealing with the horse crowd. It is a struggle.
Dined here several times and has always been great but service was a bit slow this time
Outstanding in every way, except finding the hotel & restaurant in the middle of the huge World Equestrian Center is a bit tricky.
Excellent restaurant. Considering that Ocala is a wasteland when it comes to food, this was amazing. The decor, service and food quality was excellent!
We loved the food, and we really enjoyed the ambiance .
Everything we had was excellent. The quality of the ingredients in each dish were superior to what you would find most places. Service was great. We took our son for his 21st birthday and he was very impressed……
First I would like to state that the hotel is beautiful. All the staff from the bellman, front desk, and everyone in stirrups were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing best hands down in Ocala. Kevin our server did an amazing job celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday and making it an unforgettable night. Will definitely be back again.
Fabulous food a true 5 star experience from the moment you are greeted at the door!
Outstanding evening from start to finish. Couldn't have asked for a better experience
Outstanding Birthday dinner for the wife and I. Will definitely return.
Service was amazing. Beautiful restaurant. Food was delicious!
As fine a restaurant as you'll find anywhere in the U.S. Three servers for our table of six. Four managers touched our table during the evening, including Stirrup's top manager. Food, from taste to presentation, appetizers to desserts, was wonderful. Pace was leisurely, but courses served promptly. A must-visit if you're in Central Florida.
Beautiful facility. Excellent meal particularly shaved vegetable salad and lemon dessert. Gracious staff including our excellent server Lisa
Excellent service and meal! My wife could have cut her filet with a butter knife and my salmon was fantastic. A very good experience. We will return
Menu, cuisine, and service was excellent. Kevin is one of the best and most attentive servers in the hospitality industry
The food was exceptional! Everything was fresh and light. The smoking old fashioned specialty drink was the best we’ve ever had! Loved sitting on the beautiful patio and the service was perfect.
Amazing food, beautiful atmosphere, and service was outstanding!!!! We loved our server Lisa and Dan who assisted her. It has become our new favorite place!!
It was the worst experience WE have ever had at a supposed 5 - Star restaurant! They seated a family with unruly screaming children next to us. The parents were not paying any attention to the little terrors. We could not have any type of conversation because we couldn’t hear each other.
I received my soup and could not eat it because it was too spicy. It was taken away but not removed from our bill. Our waitress really did not pay much attention to us. The service was extremely slow.
I would like to know if you have a dress code or not?!
If I wanted to wear blue jeans and eat with screaming unruly kids, I would have gone to McDonalds. My bill would have been a whole lot less.
Our entire celebration was ruined!
It was great.
It is by far the best restaurant in Ocala. The hotel and the grounds are exquisite and the food and service are top quality.
It was amazing and felt Zen like, I don’t think I have the words to express my feelings. The food was outstanding and delicious. I am a Vegan and I had enough choices. Our waitress and team was friendly, helpful and courteous throughout our dinner.
Food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic! We will continue to recommend Stirrups to our friends.
Everything was fabulous from start to finish!
Our server “Jules” was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgeable. I had a question that she didn’t know the answer to, and she quickly got it answered for me. The world needs more people like her on earth.
Great food and service. So many dog paintings odd at a equestrian hotel.
Absolutely stunning venue. Service was impeccable and food delicious! We will definitely be back!
My wife and I went for our Anniversary. We started with the Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail; it was very tasty, the sauce was excellent. However, receiving only 5 Jumbo Shrimp was a little disappointing for the price. ($18). We each ordered the 6 oz. , Filet and Lobster Tail. Our side was a twice-baked potato. My wife likes hers rare and I medium-rare.
Our steaks came perfectly cooked! These were some of the finest steaks we have ever eaten. (We have sampled some all over the country). They just melted in your mouth. The lobster tail was also excellent, very meaty and cooked to perfection. I didn't care for the clarified butter it was served with, however, it was excellent without it. The twice-baked potato was creamy and tasty. Dessert was a delight. My wife having the Florida Citrus Dessert and I had the Hummingbird. The evening was completed when we received a serving of cake with Happy Anniversary written on the plate.
We are looking forward to a return visit and trying some of the other steaks.
Stirrups was not just dinner it was an experience! Our waitress was amazing and very attentive. The presentation of the food was beautiful! We enjoyed our Anniversary dinner to the fullest!!!
This is a 5 star 🌟 restaurant and we had a 5 star 🌟 experience. Great service from Lisa and Christa. Impeccable details down to the shine on the tables..we we go back and stay again at this beautiful hotel 🏨
We are great fans of Stirrups. The food is terrific and the service is first rate. We can recommend the restaurant highly.
Excellent experience. Professional staff. Fabulous food presentation.
We recently celebrated our wedding anniversary at Stirrups. It was a perfect atmosphere. Our servers, Lisa and Sara, could not have been better. The food and drinks were outstanding. We will return and definitely recommend Stirrups to our friends.
I can’t remember our waitress’s name but she was excellent. Excellent service!!!
Second time there -- second time to be exceptionally satisfied. A combination of service excellence and exceptional food.
