Stopped here for a bite to eat . The setting is funky . You order at the counter and then take a seat either in the inside or outside . We chose the outside . There were seats along the water . The food was good and came at a reasonable time .

After positive reports, visited on our first night in E city and one course took over 60 minutes to arrive and then vegetables were cold on both a fish and chicken dish. In addition our salad entrée appeared after our main course arrived, with then need to chase knives & forkes. Location and menus looked excellent. With a number of... More

As you would expect this was a menu that featured fish quite heavily. We sat by the river and watched the sun go down enjoying a very well prepared but not expensive meal. There are few restaurants in Everglades City and this is the best in our opinion. Service was good. You order your food at the bar and then... More

Down for a day of air boating through the Everglades, this restaurant was a complete surprise. Blackened grouper salad was outstanding, and everyone in my group had nothing but 5 stars complements for this eclectic waterside restaurant with Olde Florida ambiance, on the edge of a mangrove natural wonderland. A perfect stop for a delicious lunch. Kudos!

I have driven past this place many times but always decided to go elsewhere. This time, because of tripadviser, I decided to call in. BRILLIANT!!! Great food. Great staff. Do yourself s favour and stop here. Yes it looks a bit strange from the outside but you will love it.

Great location dining outside on the deck overlooking the water. Fun and funky atmosphere and great creative food. The crab cake salad and Sam Adams made for a perfect visit. Also tried the black bean salsa and chips which were great too.

We recently had a great meal at Camellia Street Grill. The stone crabs were fresh and delicious and the salad was full of wonderful tender greens and a yummy dressing. Not the typical iceberg lettuce and heavy dressings you find at most Florida restaurants. We had heard that the service was bad but not when we went. Everyone was friendly... More

It's really a great place on the water with very good seafood (Stone crab) and salads. Unfortunatedly, the service is not at all at the level of the price and the location. It deserves much more attention and joy of the business. It seems to us, that the owner rather aims at a full place than a convenient service.
