OK, only thing open this time of year

Good place Good food, too much fried food, verges on bar food. I had the grouper dinner, my wife the grouper sandwich. We each got one, yes one, hush puppy. Fish a bit greasy, wife's fries were unique, very good. Condiments serves in little prepackage containers...like a bar. If your in season, go... read more

We stopped at the restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! We found a very clean, and friendly atmosphere. Annie was our waitress and she gave us information about the area and recommended what to do and where to stay. It turned out her recommendations were spot on! She was great! We ordered the grouper and it was the freshest grouper we... More

Stopped in to eat a cold appetizers and unfortunately the one we wanted "Oysters" ran out the night prior and new shipment won't come in til the following day. So settled on the clam chowder, clamp bites and frog leg basket. Clam chowder was good, had lots of class and potatoes, but the taste was not 100% there. The clamp... More

We arrived at Everglades city at 9pm and everything was closed except for this restaurant. Food choice is good, with different opportunities to taste gator meat alone or in combination with other seafood like Oysters, frogs, etc. Price are in the median range or with a market approach for most precious type of gator meat. We arrived quite late and... More

The atmosphere is really good. The servers were very friendly and efficient. The food was not bad, but but was overpriced for what it was. We are in the food business. What they served was diner food but it was in a fine dining price line. I have to admit the gator we got was very tender and tasty. Best... More

Such a sweet group of people here! We got here at 3pm super-hungry for some gator meat. TRY the GATOR bites here! They use the tenderloin of the gator, and it is tender and amazing. Very nice waitress and owner.

The Oyster House is the culinary highlight of Everglades City which sits on top of Everglades National Park. Good AC, good food and good drink. Its slightly expensive, but you don't have many options.

There is not much open for dinner in July in Everglades City. We stopped at a couple of places, including an overpriced diner that served only fried food. So when we walked into this establishment and was greeted by taxidermy and autographed photos of famous athletes and entertainers, we decided to give it a try. In our party of four,... More
