5 Original Restaurants to Try in the Clermont Area

As we start moving into the holiday season, give your self a break from all the hustle and bustle and try out one of these original and delicious restaurants in the Clermont area.

Root and Branch

Root & Branch is a concept dreamed up by Chef AJ Craft and his wife Dana. The couple created Clermont's most unique dining experience, bringing their vision of casual fine dining to Clermont. The menu includes traditional Southern dishes such as fried green tomatoes, hush puppies, and shrimp and grits, elevated to exquisite and delectable combinations. You'll find plenty of local ingredients on the menu here. 


Clermont Fish House

So while the Clermont Fish House is not new,  it is newly expanded. If you like traditional English Fish and Chips, this is the place to get them. Located on the corner of Hwy 50 and East Avenue, the Clermont Fish House is owned and operated by British expats. They serve a variety of fish such as flounder, cod, catfish, haddock, and more. You can also get sandwiches and traditional English pies. Keep an eye on their Facebook page, as they are a family run business.

Los Reyes Mexican Grill


Newly opened on West Avenue, you might mistake the location for someone's home. The Los Reyes Mexican Grill has all the traditional Mexican flavors, with $1 Taco Tuesdays.  The decor inside is reason alone to visit, and the freshly made authentic cuisine is the reason to stay and dine. 

Guru Restaurant

A local's favorite, Guru Indian is one of those places you leave feeling like family. Portions are substantial and the flavors are full of intricate and savory Indian spices. Guru's is located in the Clermont Hillside Terrace near the Harley Davidson dealership. 

Goomba's Pizzeria


If you want real Italian in an Italian family atmosphere, the Original Goomba's is the place. Serving pizza, calzones, hoagies, wings, pasta and more, Goomba's is the perfect spot to stop in before a movie as it's located right next door. And if you don't have room for a full dinner, be sure to check out their extensive dessert menu.
