Went there for a lunch with relatives. We ate at the screened-in porch, The food was good and hot, although it was a pretty long wait, despite the fact it was not busy. I built my own burger with bleu cheese and bacon - pretty darn good. Plus they make their own chips.
Wife had the chicken salad wrap which was good and the chef's salad was huge.
There are a number of items that sound really good - from the HokieMelt to the Cheesy Cauliflower Bites. They also serve gator. we will be back.
BTW, they also have a stage inside with entertainment on the weekends.

Best burgers in Highlands County. They have gator meat, too. I have friends who go to karaoke there, too, and love it.

We were travelling between Lakeland and Miami. Wanted to find a Seafood restaurant on the way. Were misled with a Google review about a Crab Shack in Sebring. But thanks to Tripadvisor we found this jewell. Enjoyed the Peel-N-Eat shrimp with cocktail sauce (a little too much horseradish for me) and all you can eat Fish special for 2. Wait staff were very friendly and view of the lake was very nice. Hit the mark for us. Was a rowdy Friday afternoon crowd in the bar, so may be an issue at night.

Jaxsons is a comfortable bar/restaurant that overlooks the lake. The food is excellent. The bartender and waitress were very friendly. Prices are not bad. They offer entertainment certain days/times of the week. Just a nice "down to earth" place. We were there at an "off" time of day. The few people who were there, locals, were so nice. It was like we had known them before.

Supper didn’t turn out so we went out! Yikes! We were visiting and decided to visit Jaxson’s. Looked at the menu and had a hard time deciding as we are healthy eaters. We ordered the cold shrimp cocktail. Yum! It came with homemade cocktail sauce that was full of horseradish and spice. The way we like it. We are just visiting Lake Placid so this is a good find! We shared the Gator Hookiemelt (your choice fried, blackened, grilled). We had it fried as per recommendation. It is onions and gator over a bed of sour cream with your choice of wing sauce topped with jack cheddar then baked. We asked for a side of sweet potato fries and coleslaw Yes you want 2 of these at least, yum!!! Will come back and try something different. Margaritas were good. My husband wanted wine and they had Chardonnay or Moscato. Nothing that we would drink. Tried the Chardonnay but ended up with beer. Draft was good! Not a wine place but didn’t really expect it upon entering!!
