TDN subscribers now regularly recommend dining and shopping options to our out-of-town readers.
BARBIZON SPORTS BAR (Ocala, FL - Dining)
4361 NW Blitchton Road, Ocala, FL
Type: Sports-bar food, including an awesome Philly Cheesesteak and wings
The Barbizon Sports Bar on Highway 27 is a great place for people at the sale to swing by, have lunch and watch the races. They serve typical sports bar food. My favorite is the Philly Cheesesteak. They also have good wings, and it’s just a real great sports-bar type of atmosphere. They’ve got tons of t.v.’s--big-screen t.v.’s around the room and t.v.’s at every booth. They have TVG and HRTV, so you can watch the races, enjoy a good lunch, and support a horseman. The owners, Joe and Helen Barbizon, own Pleasant Acres Farm, and they’ve created something near the sales grounds that’s great for horsemen.
