Stone crabs.....

After my husband had palpitations, he didn't ask how much? ....before I ordered them! The stone crabs were lovely and worth every cent.... $48 for one meal but hey I will probably only ever eat them once, this year anyway! The other meals, mixed platter was also plentiful and tasty and the steak... read more

Rude staff - totally ignored us - we sat at a table for 15 minutes and servers just kept walking by us. When I asked at the register for service; they were still rude. We ended up leaving...still hungry and thirsty! You can't treat customers like that...it isn't always season.

They didn't have any prices in the menu for the Stone Crab. I can see why when they charge $40 per plate that included white rice and broccoli. Ended up spending over $180 for dinner that didn't include any drinks. That combined with the hotel next door left a sour taste in the mouth. Will not be going back to... More

We had to wait quite some time to be seated and then orders taken. Food came relatively fast once ordered. Way understaffed. Only one cashier for a bus load of people. Fortunately we had cash else we would have been there a long time in line to pay. Food really was good. My grouper on greens with fruit salsa was... More

Cool atmosphere but I'd pass on this one. Food wasn't really all that good and the service staff although very nice was way overbooked.

We went here after an airboat tour as it is one of the only restaurants in Everglades City. We got there right before the rush but that didn't matter. It seemed like they were understaffed The sign outside said all you can eat snow crab, but that wasn't the case. We ordered sauteed gator and it was delicious. The $17.99... More

Lots of fried options here, and everything we ordered tasted just fine. Prices were a bit high for what we got, but we had good service.

Very pricey and the food was terrible. The only thing we liked was the regular French fries and the hush puppies.

Arrived at the restaurant around 1:30 for a late lunch. Upon arrival there were no tables available so the hostess/waitress asked if a booth was fine? we said sure. There was a reason only 1 booth was taken. The tables are stationary so you can't push it towards one side and the seats are very uncomfortable they are old and... More
