Not a family restaurant

Last week i went here for sunday brunch with my kids. (11, 9 and 5)
The setup was nice, but after seeing a young man whom I recognized from the Polk County mug shot magazine and who, after a brief background check online, turned out to have been convicted of multiple felonies in three different counties over the course of 15 years, working for tanners, i took my kids and up and left.

In my opinion Tanners is certainly not a family restaurant, with people working there who’s rap sheet includes grand larceny, grand theft, battery, assault and DRUG charges/convictions and to top it all off, are currently on probation for their latest conviction.

Makes me wonder how many more employees are convicted felons and/or are even on drugs while serving and/or preparing food and beverages to/for customers.

We would love to give you guys another try after extended background checks and random drug testing on employees have been implemented, as they should be in any reputable business, but until then thank you, but no thank you.

Enjoyable Experience

This location has been several different restaurants over the years. There are many lakes around Polk County and most have good potential for diners pleasure – this one is no exception with a great view of the lake. They’ve remodeled nicely and the interior is spacious and comfortable and the service very competent. The menu has nice selection of seafood as well as other dishes to tempt the taste buds. It was definitely a place to say “we’ll be back!”

Fried Gator Bites

Fried gator with fries, slaw and hushpuppies – very tasty, we both tried this and “approved”.
