We stopped on our way home from a weekend at Cedar Key. I've always heard ads for it on my favorite country western station. It was good food, but overlook of the Withlacoochee River somewhat overrated. Nonetheless a nice way to end our weekend. Food was good and served courteously and hot. Overall worth the stop.

Food and service were average. Parking is terrible. I still go for the live music and the dockside dining.

Went here for the "Fish & Chips". You get plenty of fried fish strips (swai I think), crunchy and good, although a little soft inside after deep frying. Tasty coleslaw and just enough fries. Friendly staff and a good location right on the Withlacoochee River. We ate inside because it was warm, plus smoking is allowed on the outside seating... More

We had reservations as we had a party of 18. We arrived at our scheduled time of 5:00 p.m. and they were all set up for us. We asked for a spot in the shade as we were dining outdoors, and that's what we got. It was a very warm evening. They had fans blowing an that helped a lot.... More

We found this place on the Internet to take our parents from Ocala as a lunch outing. The menu selection has a great variety. We had steamed clams, grouper sandwich, steamed shrimp and a Cuban sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their meal. We also went for an airboat ride with Captain Bob and it was the most scenic ride we have ever... More

I have been back twice since my poor review and both were better. Service was excellent and from owners daughter I told her of my dissatisfied visit and she truly made my last visit a great experience. Give it a try and see how it goes ....the frog legs are yummy

Can't rate the food because we were seated for over 25 minutes without even a hello from a server. Very disappointed, was looking forward to eating there. On our way to different restaurant now. Wish us luck
