This place was a pleasant surprise. The shrimp and grits rivals any other I have had. The fried chicken was...the word that comes to mind is “perfect.”

Short and sweet. Had a pretty rough experience for dinner one night at Two Meatballs. Walked next door to Fancy's and what a nice change! They had bottle specials on wine so we got a bottle of chardonnay and sat on the couch. We were...More

Good Southern cooking is hard to find in urban areas of Florida, and it is much sought after when it is found. I have only found two restaurants that fit this description and Fancy's was one. If the thought of authentic... More
