The Watering Hole for years was just that -- a gin joint from what I can tell. Then something happened and they satrted doing steak ... and they really do it well. I think they know how to buy the best, how to cook it and how to present it. It is somewhat heavy on the garlic and butter -- but it would be hard to argue with the 800 or so other patron who wait on line for as much as an hour and a half (especially on the weekends) that there is anything wrong with that. People don't come for the decor or the wine list ... they come for the food.
The place is closed Sunday and Monday. They take no reservations. They have an aligator in a cage in the main dining area. They take no credit cards. And it it the first stop any of on the racing circuit make when we get into town.
I get the Cowboy Filet Mignon for maybe $17 or $18 bucks (they serve it with succulent baby potatos in butter, a fruit salad and a banana.) I can almost taste it now. Sadly I'm 2,800 miles away in Seattle.
BTW: Congrats on moving to Sebring. I've been coming to town since 1992 and have made many friends and met their friends and their friends friends -- and I can tell you the people in Sebring are among my favorites anyplace. I always look forward to going there.
It is on 27 kind of south of everything else. It used to be easier to spot before the hurricane blew away the neon aligator out front. Enjoy.
