Back by popular demand!
Greetings Cruisers! Pete, Ron, and I were talking recently and one of us said, “Hey, we haven’t done a Meet’n Eat in a while!” So, we called our friends at the GC Grillhouse on Rt. 27 in Lake Placid (formerly “Golden Corral) and made the arrangements.
If you can break away from normal life (whatever that is!) , meet us at GC Grillhouse from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm for lunch. GC Grillhouse has excellent Lunch Specials and their salad bar is terrific.
So, you are invited to join us, tie on the old feed bag, bench race, tell jokes, laugh, and solve the world’s problems! See you for lunch! – Scott, Pete, and Ron
PS – Our next event will be Saturday, May 27, 2023, at Dock 633 from 11 am to 2 pm-ish.
Dock 633 has been a very generous sponsor to us. Recently, owners Bill and Hillary asked us to stage a Car Show as part of the Grand Opening of their new “Sand Bar” outside tiki bar.
The new tiki bar area is under a big shade tree with tent coverings. Drinks will be served outside and lunch can be ordered from inside.
This is a Show’n Shine event, with no registration fee, but we’ll have a 50/50. Hope you can join us!
You Get’n Hungry or What?
Greetings Cruisers! For our next Meet’n Eat Luncheon, we’ll be tying on the old feedbag at Jaxson’s On the Lake, in Lake Placid. Jaxson’s is a great little local watering hole with a vintage down-home bar flavor that offers indoor dining, as well as outdoor dining in their screened-in back porch that looks out over Lake Henry.
If you have never been to Jaxson’s, it’s easy to get there. If you are driving south on Rt. 27 (as if you were coming to a Cruisers Show at the American Legion, drive another mile or so, past the Advent Hospital on the right, and turn RIGHT onto Lake June Road, just past the CITCO gas station on the Right.
The road winds and twists, and you’ll drive about one mile. Jaxson’s is on the RIGHT, there’s a sign, you can’t miss it! Continue reading “Meet’n Eat at Jaxson’s Feb 16, 2-to-4 PM”

Great Steaks, Lunch Specials, Entries, & Service at one of Sebring’s Premier Restaurants
Dateline: 7-22-22 – Well, the hungry Cruisers descended upon Cowpoke’s Watering Hole to tie on the ‘ol feed bag! It was a hot, sunny summer Florida day, but cool in the Watering Hole’s private back room. With twenty Cruisers in attendance, we filled half of the room.
A very good time was had by all; lots of laughs, joking, story-telling, and comradely. That’s what our monthly Meet’n Eat luncheons are all about.
And a special “Thanks” to Cowpoke’s Watering Hole. Our waitress was excellent, the food was perfect, and everyone felt welcome. We’ll definitely do it again!
Cowpoke’s Watering Hole has a lot to offer. The outside Tiki bar is a delight, the inside air-conditioned dining rooms was relaxing, and the restaurant can accommodate special events, such as Lake Country Cruiser’s Meet’n Eat luncheons! – Scott, Pete, & Ron
PS – Our next Meet’n Eat Luncheon will be at Dock 633, the date to be announced.

Dateline 5.21.22 – The beautiful winter and early spring weather seems to be behind us now, as it was a hot day in Lake Placid for our May Meet’n Eat luncheon. The lakes were indeed “placid”, but it was in the low 90s. Needless to say, our gathering of Cruisers was happy to lunch INSIDE air-conditioned Jaxson’s On the Lake.
Typically, Jaxson’s packs them in during the dinner and evening hours, but the 2 pm-to-4 pm hours were quiet enough for good conversation and lots of laughs.
Big THANKS to JJ, the Jaxson’s owner for the generous $50 gift certificate that Mark Taboda won at last weekend’s Cruisers Car Show at the Lake Placid American Legion. JJ is a Corvette guy and when he has the time, he comes to the Highlands County Corvettes shows.
Our attending Cruisers included: Martin Striegel and his wife, Mark and Sharon Taboda, Jim and Linda Schindlbeck, Bob Mahel, Bob Barrard, Ron Ellerman, Jack Murphy, Jim Maze, and Pete Richie, and myself. Our waitress, Madison was terrific, and CONGRATS to her and her new baby!
Lake Country Cruisers also got some ink in the Highlands News-Sun May 18, 2022 edition. Cruisers Jim Schindlbeck, Bob Mahel, Pete Richie, Jack Murphy, Jim Maze, Mark Taboda, and I brought our Corvettes; Ron Ellerman brought his classic Toyota 4×4, and Bob Barrard brought his Ford Hot Rod Roadster. So, we decorated Jaxson’s parking lot with cool rides! Continue reading “Lake Country Cruisers Meet’n Eat at Jaxson’s On the Lake!”
