Saturday Night is babyback rib night at Mallory Hill Country Club and restaurant located in The Villages, an active senior community in north Florida, between Ocala and Orlando. Dotted through The Villages are many golf country clubs, each with a restaurant and of course a bar with some kind of Happy Hour special. You don’t have to be a member to dine at the restaurant or to enjoy The Villages Happy Hour.
Today’s dinner special at Mallory Hill Country Club was the BBQ baby back rib dinner for $12.99. It comes with coleslaw, French fries and garlic toast.
The regular menu was quite large, but all four of us wanted the BBQ ribs. We also added on some cups of soup. Our server was spot on and really friendly, always checking on us and communicating all along the way.
Soups came out first. The chicken noodle soup was packed with chicken and vegetables which didn’t leave a lot of room for the broth. While I liked the soup, it was your regular chicken noodle variety which reminded me of the many diners in South Florida. The seafood soup / chowder was thick and full of seafood flavor and tasted a little more homemade than the chicken soup.
Our BBQ baby back ribs came out quickly after our soups were finished. We were impressed by the portions at first glance. The slab of ribs was covered in a sweet and smoky BBQ sauce which we all liked. The rib meat was lean and totally fall of the bone which made them really easy to eat. The French fries were hot and crisp with a coating for extra flavor. The coleslaw was a smaller portion, but more than enough to complete the dinner. The garlic bread was full of flavor as well.
Overall this was a great dinner special that would get us to go back and try more dishes. Our server was great and was really nice and friendly. She did a great job taking care of us through the meal without intruding.
Oh, keep in mind that The Villages happy hour prices are amazing at with draft beer only $1.86 each. It’s cheaper to drink beer than to order iced tea or soda.
