Any place that you visit, there will be places for you to eat great food and enjoy delicious drinks. What sets Winter Haven a part is the fact that you can have all of those things while you take in gorgeous sunsets, breezy evenings, lakeside views or views of our newly renovated downtown core. Some residents joke that downtown is our very own "EPCOT World Showcase" in terms of the dining options which include Italian cuisine, Louisiana inspired menus, southern BBQ, locally owned coffee shops, Thai food, sushi, Japanese inspire menus, American favorites, Mexican, bakeries, healthy smoothies and so much more.
You can't forget to pair your dinner with a great drink from any of our restaurants, bars or our very own craft brewery. Aptly described as Winter Haven's backyard party, Grove Roots Brewing Co. is Winter Haven's first and only craft brewery. Grove Roots' theme pays homage to our citrus industry past, but with modern twist. Whether you are a craft beer aficionado or someone that just likes live music, delectable food trucks, trivia nights, craft business markets and a safe space for family members of all ages to enjoy, Grove Roots is a great stop on your visit to our community or your regular Sunday Funday. Winter Haven is also expecting to have it's first taproom in downtown this summer. Union Taproom is expected to be a family oriented taproom, featuring 40 self pour taps including an ever-changing variety of craft beer, ciders, wine, cold-brew coffee, and kombucha. Winter Haven is the destination to eat, drink and be merry!
