Excellent blackened grouper and stone crabs. The caprese salad was amazing. Awesome puppy wandering through dining room was so sweet and gentle. Great view on water. Beautiful location.

I have been eating at Rod and Gun for 15+ years. It has ALWAYS been inconsistent. One day they don't have blue cheese dressing, out of Diet Coke another day, and LOL out of hamburger last time I was there. The food goes up and down too, sometime all in one month. This review is based on the last time we all ate there.

Food Quality: A
Excellent food, out of some things, but when you order grouper you get grouper. Shrimp excellent. The menu is somewhat limited. They cooked our catch and it was done perfectly, broiled with flavor. Alligator bites, conch fritters excellent.

Cleanliness: A
Never have thought of this place as dirty, eating on the porch however in the evening does get buggy.

Service: well---
It's friendly, it's chatty, you get a healthy pour. Think they don't have enough staff, but then in the evening it's not all that busy.

Ambiance: A+++++
There is nothing like this that I know of. It's a treasure. Love it.

Remember CASH only....

Had lunch here after an Everglades air boat ride! Kids had hamburgers, wife had grouper sandwich; son-in-law had the calamari basket and I had fried frog legs. Food was not bad; service was quite good. Only real complaint -- limited beer selection (Bud Light and Yuengling Lager). Restaurant does not accept credit cards -- cash only.

We were the only people in the restaurant at 2 (1400) in the afternoon though some folk sat on the marina side porch enjoying some cool drinks. The food we had was not fancy, but we had some of the freshest, best tasting fried shrimp I have ever had. Staff was friendly and respectful of our groups' conversation. That this was an old club is also a cool feature. Check it out if you are in the area.

Old timey Florida on the water. Hard to beat this place for ambience. A drink on the veranda is a real experience. Somewhat pricey for food.
