Had lunch here Saturday and enjoyed it very much. The grouper sandwich and coleslaw was just right. The beer was cold and the afternoon rain also cooled us off. Good time!

Stopped in for lunch and had gumbo and burger. Both were excellent! and we sat overlooking the river. I imagine the place fills up on weekends, esp. at night, with a big bar crowd. Would stop again.

It's a shame that the reviews for this place are all over the board because it's very authentic for the area that it's in. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not the place. If you're looking for consistent, boring food like in a...More

This is hands-down the best place to enjoy a lazy afternoon on the river. Drinks are largely watered-down and the seafood is obviously not fresh and the prices are outrageously high, but the location is perfect. There is no better place to watch the birds,...More

Had lunch here on a perfect Florida day - sunny, with a little breeze and right on the water. Food fresh and tasty. Shrimp po'boy was great and my colleague, an oyster lover, thoroughly enjoyed the fried oyster basket. Service staff very friendly and no...More

We love this place. Service is sometimes slow, but it is because they are usually so busy. The food is good, and I love that they offer a vegetarian version of their philly cheese steak sandwich...it is greasy delicious in a great way. 😂 100%...More

We stopped there for lunch on the recommendation of a local friend. We had a very nice grouper sandwich and the wait staff was efficient despite the good number of people there. It is a very pleasant place with a view of the water.

Located along the river, it has many tables with water views. The building is a bit worn, but I like dives. Service was slow with just two people serving. Had quite a wait between drinks, food order and delivery, but it wasn't very crowded. I...More

Hi, i am coming down to Alligator Point on vacation. I will be there this weekend. I have my dog with me and was wondering if your restaurant was dog friendly. He is well behaved and potty trained with all shots ect. He will be going with me everywhere and do not want to leave him in an unfamiliar home alone. He would be scared by himself in an unfamiliar place. It is to hot to leave him in the car. Your response would be greatly appreciated.
