The Yearling Restaurant would like to welcome you to Cross Creek, Fl. it was first opened in 1952, just down the road from Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings home in Cross Creek. The restaurant was named after her famous novel, The Yearling. We have tried to capture the flavor and spirit of old Florida, as she portrayed it in her books. Please stop by and sample old Florida and enjoy the sights and cuisine today just as they were in the early 1900s. The Yearling Restaurant is just 14 miles from Gainesville and 25 miles from Ocala. Wildlife abounds around the restaurant. The Ocala National Forest is just to the south and west of the restaurant. The highway to the restaurant has been named a Florida Scenic Highway. The Yearling is considered one of the best restaurants in Florida by Florida Trend Magazine. The enchantment of Cross Creek will cast a spell. You may also choose to spend the night in one of seven restored cottages at the Secret River Lodge found along the Creek. For more info on lodging please contact us. Our menu includes items such as: Grilled Chicken Breast, Stuffed Flounder, Deep Fried Clams, and Prime Rib. More traditional items include Venison, Quail, Cooter, Froglegs, and Alligator. We also have a large private dining area available for private party dining on request. We have live music in each room, so come experience the blues of Willie Green, a Yearling tradition.
