What we’re about
Eccentric people are highly intelligent and can be quirky. Do you want to make new friends, enjoy delicious cuisine, laugh, etc.?? If so, this might be the group for you.
To me, being eccentric is more than just being 'different' or 'odd'. It's about being yourself. So, if you like great food and interesting people, give us a spin! We occasionally venture into other areas, yet almost always end up dining together somewhere.
We, most often, seek out unique/exotic restaurants and similar venues that promote enjoyable dining experiences, stimulating conversation and merriment all around!! What's unique or exotic to some may not be such for others, yet in the end, we all end up happy and well-fed! Cheers to dining together all around Central Florida!

- Great Food at Sam Snead's Oak Grill & Tavern in MaitlandSam Snead's Oak Grill and Tavern, Orlando, FL
By request and given we had a terrific time when we last dined there, we're headed back over to Sam Snead's Oak Grill & Tavern. They've resided in the RDV Sports Center's parking lot for decades, which means they're doing something, and likely many things, right.
If you've been before, you know the food is darn good. If not, you're in for a treat. Either way, peruse their menu here:
Here's some basic, yet important, info worth knowing:
All are welcome (as long as you RSVP/register to attend)!
No worries if you're running a bit late, we're typically at a restaurant for at least an hour and a half.
Please honor your RSVP and show up if you select "Yes" (I'm attending). If you cannot make it after already RSVP'ing "Yes", simply change your RSVP to "No" online. That way, we can manage seating arrangements and the restaurant can manage staff levels, etc.
Feel free to call the restaurant, via 407-622-8800, if you need assistance finding the place and/or have food allergies or preferences you want to run by them.
Beyond that, come hungry!
- Another trip to Linda's La CantinaLinda's La Cantina , Orlando, FL
It is time for another trip to the wonderful Linda's La Cantina steakhouse. To people who are unfamiliar, Linda's La Cantina is NOT a Mexican restaurant but rather it is a steakhouse.
They are very strict about seating at the restaurant and will not seat the group until the whole group is present. So our reservation is for 6 PM but I am asking everyone to meet in front of the restaurant by 5:50 so that we can then be seated. They also stressed that they will NOT allow late comers to join us once we are seated.
Other than the attendance directives, this is a wonderful steakhouse that I had to schedule three times previously because of the interest in this venue.
So, please join me in a nice steakhouse dinner with some good friends and meet some new people while enjoying this place.
One suggestion, do NOT get the spaghetti. 🤣🤣🤣

A favorite Indian Restaurant of many. This restaurant is across the street from Ruth's Chris Winter Park just off of 17-92, on the West side. It's located next to Petco on the Ross store side. Southwest corner of the Parking lot. I usually enter from where 17-92 intersects with Webster. Then turn to the left. I'm looking forward to seeing a good group here.

- Thai Time at Siam Garden Thai RestaurantSiam Garden, Winter Park, FL
After 9 years, I finally tried this place and enjoyed it enough to see if they could accommodate an Eccentricity Club dining event. I had the Tom Yum soup, Crispy Soft Shell crab and Chicken Panang Curry as photos above. My new favorite is the Panang Duck. This restaurant is across the street from the old Ruth's Chris Winter Park Village just off of 17-92. There is parking in front and behind the restaurant and only a short walk from the Winter Park Village shopping center lot, near the Starbucks. I'm looking forward to seeing a good group here.
