ABOVE: Owner Randy Connor inside Courthouse Subs & Pub
The location couldn’t be better for hungry and thirsty diners near the Tavares courthouse.
Courthouse Subs & Pub opened on June 1 directly across from Lake County Courthouse in the former location of Zac’s Pressed for Time and Casa Mia. The space suffered serious damage after an electrical fire in 2015, but it has since been remodeled with a warm and spacious interior, as well as shaded outside dining.
The restaurant is operated by its owner Randy Connor and manager Abbey Muick. Connor knows a thing or two about creating successful restaurants in Lake County. His other restaurants, Crazy Gator on the lakefront in downtown Eustis and Kalua Hale Beach Bar on Lake Dora in downtown Tavares, both have strong local followings.
The inviting pub features an appetizing menu of gourmet burgers, 14-inch subs, fresh salads and soups, plus a few Tex-Mex items like steak quesadillas and ultimate nachos. Desserts include housemade brownies and cookies.
Courthouse Subs & Pub also has a full bar with a daily happy hour from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. that features $2.50 single well drinks and $3 house wines, Budweiser and Bud Light. For patrons that can’t make happy hour, margaritas are $5 all day, every day.
The restaurant is closed on weekends, due to the courthouse hours. However, on Saturday and Sunday the venue is available for private parties and events. Courthouse Subs & Pub is located at 505 W. Main Street in downtown Tavares.
