If you build it, they will dine. They were already coming by the busload and there was no place to feed them. It’s not as though they were collapsing on the lawn from fatigue. But they were asking for a sandwich or two from the Castle kitchen. So, Howard, in his Kingly wisdom, said “I will make a boat and float it in the moat to keep marauding pirates and invading armies from laying siege to my minions”--or something like that.
Anyway, next thing we knew, there was the boat.
restaurant came next and then the food and drinks and the people too! It is safe to say, and with a great deal of pride, that we now have the finest restaurant in Ona, Florida. Just ask the people who come by to visit every day and the Castle guests that lazily lounge in the boat’s dining room belly or on our oak-draped deck adjacent to the boat. Now, take a look at some of our offerings. And next time you think about coming to the Castle for a visit, remember a leisurely lunch should be a part of the bargain.
