NICHOLSON FARMHOUSE HOUSE RESTAURANT AND GIFT SHOP IS CLOSED FOR BUSINESS AS OF 12/23/06.
Hidden down a dirt lane a few hundred yards north of State Road 12, three miles west of Havana, stands a house that has sturdily endured the test of time and weather. The Nicholson Farmhouse was built in 1828 and is now a historic site. Also nestled within the 45 acres surrounding the Farmhouse are four other restored homes for dining. These, along with the Nicholson home comprise the 650-seat dining facility. In addition to dining, you will find a gift shop, a barn, shed with antique farm implements, and a gazebo, all for your enjoyment.
This restaurant is rated as one of Florida’s TOP 200 by FLORIDA TREND magazine and is renowned for its delicious aged-to-perfection grilled steaks of all sizes that are cut on-site. They also serve grilled chicken, fish, pork loin, lamb chops, grouper, and shrimp. As a special beginning, you will find boiled peanuts on the table for your enjoyment as you are making a decision on your meal and reading over our "Newspaper" menu.
On any typical weekend you will find the mule wagon riding guests over the grounds. Also, for the kid's enjoyment we now have pony rides! After Dinner and a ride, come on over to the Gift Shop. There you will find the famous Farmhouse steak sauce and salad dressings, Minky Bears, Beanie Babies, Porcelain Dolls, and much more.
