Ten Most Haunted Places in Broward County
4. The Davie Waffle House
This particular Waffle House, located on 4650 Volunteer Road in Southwest Ranches, was the home of a particularly heinous murder in 2002 that still reportedly haunts the restaurant.
On the morning of March 11, 2002, two men walked into the restaurant and ordered the employees inside into a meat locker at gunpoint. They then used bolt cutters to break into cash safes.
The robbers then ordered the employees on their knees and shot them, execution style.
The men were eventually caught and arrested, but employees at the Waffle House have been reporting paranormal activities since 2002.
Some have reported feeling a creepy presence among them in the restaurant, while others have reported seeing fresh blood stains on the floor appear where the shootings took place.
The structure was originally built in the early 1900s by brothers Thomas and Reed Bryan, who occupied the home until the 1970s. The Inn was eventually converted into a catering facility until it closed.
Even when the building was in operation, there were reports of servers refusing to go into certain rooms alone. One room, which originally belonged to Reed's second wife, who reportedly died in the house, would often be found with chairs and furniture rearranged after servers would leave.
There were also reports of a ghost child wandering the premises, often turning the lights on and off. Some say this was actually the ghost of Tom's son, who died in his 40s but returned to haunt the premises as a child. He apparently lived in the home when electricity was first introduced to the area, which would explain his fascination with playing with light switches.
Much like the Coyote Ugly bar, the River House might be more active with spirits now that it's abandoned.
