We stopped in for a cocktail before dinner. Debbie, the bartender, was fun and mixed a good drink. Nice sample of rural Florida with stuffed gators and assorted wildlife.
Awful: prime rib was cooked more like pot roast. "Au jus" was 90% fat! single hush puppy looked like it was deep fried in motor oil. Ridiculously overpriced, service barely passable in empty restaurant. Do yourself a favor, eat at Subway on SR-29 & US-41, save the difference for a really good meal somewhere else!
Soup was not hot and not the best clam chowder. Prime rib was over cooked and the fat I the au jus made it unedible. Salad had mushy grouper and too spicy mango salsa. We will not be back.
This is where the locals go, at least to the bar. Not sure if they eat in the restaurant. The menu looks nice enough but once the food arrives at your table you see that they definitely don't have a chef and I don't think they even have a cook.

This is a great little place to stop and eat. Interesting decor and great service.

Our waitress Candy Sue was wonderful. We always make it our stop for good chowder and good fish. We make sure we take all our friends there for our first meal in town for the good food and friendly people. you know it's going to be the best because all the locals go there.
This restaurant was included in an Everglades guided tour. The tour praised a Grouper salad imagined by Bobby Flayer. The Grouper was moist and went well with the Mango Salsa. However, the base salad was a plain tasteless iceberg lettuce, hothouse tomatoes and cucumbers. The Key Lime pie was from a local frozen specialties company.
The meatiest and most tender gator bites I've ever had and the key lime pie is home made and THE BEST . Thank you Candy and Joel for the great service .
Great food with very attentive service by Candy, our waitress. We loved the atmosphere with lots of trophies and miscellaneous items on the wall.
We stopped here for dinner after a long day at Everglades National Park. The food was good. We had a sea food platter and the Grouper was fantastic! Candy was our waitress and she was very attentive and pleasant. We would definitely go back.
