Nice view of lake from outdoor patio

We stopped for a light lunch on a Sunday and their special was 60 cent wings. We ordered 10 (their minimum order). Wings were over cooked, hot sauce was good and not too hot. Service was kind of slow and they weren't very busy. The restaurant is very rustic and does have indoor dining also. 2-4-1... read more

We went with 12 other family members on a Saturday evening to Crazy Gator in Eustis. We arrived at about 6:15pm and were seated promptly. There were few people in the restaurant. The restaurant is right on Lake Eustis in an old building. Great views, nicely redone building. The waiter took our drink orders. The beer he brought was supposed... More

We've not eaten here in a few years since we used to dock our boat nearby, so stopped in on a Sunday to reacquaint ourselves. Not at all disappointed. Were led to a booth by the window overlooking Lake Eustis. Server appeared quickly and took our drink order, and was back promptly for food order. Wife and I both had... More

$9 for a burger that looked like it was from a "where's the beef" ad. So small, that you couldn't see it within the bun! This place used to be good but since the sale about a year ago to a new owner, now it's all about the money to them. Service was so-so. To ad insult to injury, part... More

Saw an ad for the place, thought we give it a try. Building was built in the 20's, and has original hard wood flooring. Sat in rear dining, and had a beautiful view of lake eustis at sunset. Ordered edamame for a app. Large portion, and cooked just right. Then got wings in house boom boom sauce, excellent. Wife got... More

We have been here before. Since we were in the area we stopped for lunch. Had an appetizer of fried pickles with our draft beer. I had the grilled scallops with mashed potatoes and hubby had the bacon burger with fries. We were stuffed and happy. Food excellent, service efficient and caring, atmosphere super, our booth next to the windows... More

Great service good food, and nice menu. Good prices and beautiful view of the lake and the sunset. Hands down the best Buffalo chicken sandwich Ihave ever eaten, and I have had my share. The food portions are generous and very reasonable priced. Comfortable,relaxing paced atmosphere.

I reviewed this place before. But, this time was a total disaster. My wife and I wanted the shrimp dinner. We were informed they didn't have any shrimp. It's the only dinner my wife likes there. So, she decided to order Caesar salad and onion rings. I ordered a patty melt. Waiting for our food maybe 5 or 6 minutes... More

The service was terrible, food terrible-I guess it is our fault for going to this restaurant and not reading the reviews first. Apparently poor service and crappy food is the norm. I guess this works in a vacation area because you do not need to have repeat customers. We ended up having to get our food to go because it... More
