It's been such a busy time for many people. With working and taking care of families and our homes, it's a lot! And let's face it, a lot of times because of the busyness of life, we often times don't want to cook dinner. I mean after a long day at work, the last thing we want to do is go home and spend hours slaving over a hot stove. So, because of this realistic problem, I decided to write a post about the top places to eat in Citrus County. I also decided to do this because some of you may be new to the Citrus County area and may not know the local eatery here. So here are some of the top ones and some of my personal favorites.

In Crystal River, there are tons of fun places to eat. Charlie's Fish House Restaurant. They are open 7 days a week from 11AM- 9PM. On Google Reviews, they have a 4 out of 5 star rating. It is a casual, family-owned restaurant with some great seafood! Another great place to eat in Crystal River is Cody's Original Roadhouse. They are open Monday-Thursday from 11AM-10:30PM. Fridays and Saturdays they are open from 11AM-11PM and Sundays they are open from 11AM-10PM. They are a 4.1 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews and it is one of Fran's favorite places to eat as well. It's definitely a hearty and great place to eat! Now in Homosassa there are also amazing places to eat as well. Here are some of the top ones according to us and Google. The first is Marguerita Grill. They are open 7 days a week from 11AM-9PM. This is a great place to eat and another one of Fran's favorites. They have a little bit of everything. They have seafood, burgers, sandwiches and so much more. They have a 4.1 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews. Sounds like a great place! Homosassa is also home to The Biscuit Barn. They are open from Tuesday-Saturday from 6AM-2:30PM and Sundays from 7AM-2PM. They have a 4.7 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews. They have good breakfast and lunch specials and real southern food as well! This is another of Fran's favorites and one that I am looking forward to trying myself (maybe, I'll write another post on how it goes). Lastly in Homosassa, the Seagrass Waterfront Restaurant is (yep you guessed it) another one of Fran's favorites. It is open Mondays from 11AM-7PM, Tuesdays-Thursdays from 11AM-9PM. Friday and Saturdays from 11AM to 10PM and Sundays from 11AM-8PM. They have a 3.9 out of 5 stars on Google Reviews. They have some great seafood and an amazing view you can't miss!

Inverness, although a small town, has some great eats from big chain restaurants to awesome mom and pop places. One popular one is Coach's Pub and Eatery Restaurant. They are open from Sunday-Thursday from 11AM-12AM and Fridays and Saturdays from 11AM-2AM. This is a great place! They have a 4 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews and it is one of my personal favorites. They have great American classics and a nice ambiance. I personally love their Quesadillas! Also, right next door is another great eatery called Stumpknockers. They are open Sundays, Tuesdays-Thursdays from 11AM-9PM and Friday and Saturday from 11AM-10PM. They have a 4.3 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews and is a great Southern place to eat! The last 2 restaurants I want to mention in Inverness are some of my favorites as well. The first is Angelotti's Pizza. They are open Saturday-Thursday from 10:30AM-9PM and Fridays from 10:30AM-10PM. They have a 4.2 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews and is an amazing Italian place. Their garlic knots are amazing and my favorite (other than the pizza) is their Alfredo Chicken. Absolutely, a great place to eat! The second is Heidi's Restaurant. They are open from Monday-Thursday from 11AM-9PM and Fridays from 11AM-10PM and Sundays and Saturdays from 4PM-9PM. They have a 4.1 out of 5 stars on Google Reviews and is another great Italian place. They have specials daily and some amazing pasta as well as burgers! Inverness also has some great classics like Applebees, Olive Garden and Outback! 

Now the last town in Citrus County I want to talk about is Ozello. Ozello has great eats as well! It is home of Peck's Old Port Cove. It is open 7 days a week from 11AM-9PM. It has a 4.3 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews. It is a great seafood restaurant and has an awesome waterfront view! Ozello also has a restaurant called Island Outpost which is open from Wednesday-Saturday from 6:30AM-9PM and Sunday 6:30AM-4PM. It has a 4.8 out of 5 star rating on Google Reviews and I hear it is a great place to eat. I have not had the pleasure yet but maybe when I do, I'll write my own review on it. Or if any of you do, let me know! :)

So these were just some of the most popular and some of our personal favorites. But there are plenty of places to visit and eat in Citrus County. Be sure to check some of these out or if you know of any that are amazing that perhaps we forgot to mention let us know! But whatever, you do, be sure to get out there and enjoy all that Citrus County (not just food) has to offer! :)
