Purpose: Here at The Miccosukee Root Cellar we are passionate about supporting local farms and providing fresh organic food to our community. We advocate for sustainability and bio-diversity and foster a gathering space to support local producers, farmers, artists and musicians. As we guide you through your experience at the restaurant we offer home-grown integrity in our staff, our food, our wine and beer selection, and our music.
Background: We opened the Miccosukee Root Cellar in 2011 as a way to showcase the abundant and beautiful foods grown by our local farms. Owner Ruben Fields’ parents run Turkey Hill Farm, a biodynamic and sustainable small farm on Tallahassee’s east side. Our frequently changing menu reflects the bounty of Turkey Hill and other small farms in the area.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Reservations: We do not take reservations.
- If you wish to call us 15-30 minutes before arrival, we’ll happily give you an idea of our current wait times (if any). On weeknights we typically do not have a wait.

We have a small seating area to accommodate those who choose to wait, and we will happily serve drinks to those waiting.
