A Few Words Of Love From Our Fans

Best Diner - Central Florida

A decorative line


"Generally speaking, in northern cities, a diner has one kind of feel. Southern ones, another. Few split the diff as well as Oviedo’s much beloved Town House Restaurant, where you can get delicious, Greek diner-style gyro meat and fresh, bright tzatziki sauce alongside your eggs right next to a country gravy-slathered house-made biscuit that’s soft in all the right places."

Townhouse Restaurant Review

A decorative line


Scott Joseph Says:

"I recently stopped in for breakfast, which I always thought was the Townhouse’s best meal. I didn’t need much time to look the menu over. The Chili Cheese Omelet immediately caught my eye and I considered nothing else. Chili cheese omelets are my go-to morning after meal and this one was just as good without a hangover. The eggs were nicely folded and topped with glop of meat and bean chili and shreds of cheddar cheese. I selected the home fries (or homefries, if you wish) instead of the grits and couldn’t have been happier with my decision.

And I got a biscuit instead of toast just so I could order a side of sausage gravy. Deliciously smooth and unfloury with nice bits of crumbled sausage on a Southern-cookbook-perfect fresh biscuit.

I was lucky to snag a single stool at the counter because there were lots of people standing around waiting for tables (only a few of those in biking gear). My server was so nice and friendly that she couldn’t even tell the people two stools over that she had to go serve other guests when they wouldn’t stop asking her personal questions. She never stopped smiling and she made a point of saying how glad she was that each guest came in.

That’s the Townhouse I remember."

USA TODAY – ORLANDO’S 10 BEST

A decorative line


"10BEST SAYS:

To paraphrase that old 70s Greg Kihn hit, "they don't make 'em like this anymore." Oviedo's downtown is hardly bustling (unless you count its famous feral chickens, they bustle quite a bit) but at its center sits the TownHouse, almost as it has since the 1950s. A recent move has put it in brand-new expanded digs up the street, but the food hasn't changed a bit. They're serving up all the diner classics in a clean and cozy setting; it's been named to a host of Orlando-local lists over the years, most notably for its breakfasts. Aside from biscuits and gravy, omelets, pancakes and the like at breakfast, the Townhouse menu also features Greek and Mediterranean fare – with staples like burgers and meatloaf and all the things you'd expect from a quaint country diner."

"New Townhouse Restaurant in Oviedo Open

SOURCE: Orlando My Way

OVIEDO, Fla.

First, the bad news: The original Townhouse Restaurant in downtown Oviedo, which has been in business since the 1960s, closed its doors this week. 

But there's good news: A new, expanded Townhouse Restaurant, just a few hundred feet from the old location, opens this weekend.

Orlando My Way got a sneak peek at the new location during the restaurant's soft opening. For fans of the Townhouse Restaurant, I'm happy to inform you that the charm, the abundance of chicken paraphernalia and the diner-type feel made it over to the new location."

"Oviedo Townhouse – Breakfast/Lunch – Oviedo

In a time where greasy chains abound from Denny’s to IHOP’s that serve the same mediocre and barely-edible-unless-you’re-really-wasted “breakfast” food, the 48 year old Oviedo Townhouse is a breath of fresh air, doing breakfast well, tried and true, as if you were eating at home."
