Plantation feels like the result of someone pulling a liquor license out of a claw machine and then immediately turning their house into a restaurant without making many changes. The outside of this big spot in Harvey Cedars looks like a nice home, as does the inside, with a carpeted dining room that has a fireplace, and another room with green wallpaper and random picture frames. It’s a comfortable spot for lunch or brunch when you can sit at a table and get a massive bacon cheeseburger or sweet potato hash with corned beef and eggs, but it’s best during Happy Hour from 4-7pm every day. Get some $4 beers or $5 glasses of wine, as well as discounted bar food, like a plate of really good, meaty buffalo wings.
