Enjoyed our dinners twice

This was a simple local restaurant and got very crowded on the Saturday night we were there the first time, and very loud. There was a band of 3 singers playing there, western music, which we enjoyed. The food was tasty - my hamburger and my husband's crab cake were both very tasty, and I liked... read more

We visited Everglades City for the day and decided to have lunch at Camellia Street Grill after reading the excellent reviews in Trip Advisor. The place is very casual and the food was delicious, very fresh. We all got different entree and they were all great. The restaurant overlooks the water and there is indoor and outdoor seating.

This is a hidden gem. Delicious food, complete menu for all ages. Our kids had cheese quesadillas, and my husband had the grouper sandwich with sweet potato fries and I had the fish tacos and herb salad. The flavors and freshness of the food was amazing. The herb salad was so so good. The fish was delicious. The total for... More

Delicious fresh food and great family atmosphere. The crab cakes and homemade salsa are divine. The country band makes the experience pleasant. Bring bug spray!

We stayed 3 nights in Everglades City, and our last night was a Monday, when many other eateries close early or don't open. Not very hungry, but wanting something, we would have gone back to City Seafood, but just missed them closing at 6 p.m. Went to Camellia Street, and found this funky party spot, pretty packed, as one of...

Wow, this was a spur of the moment decision to eat at the Camellia Street Grill. It's not your usual restaurant. The Fried Shrimp, Sweet Potato Fries were absolutely the best! Not all that expensive! My family of 3 spent about $60.

Even though my daughter and I got to the restaurant 30 minutes before they opened for lunch, we enjoyed watching the boats come in and out. Lunch begins at noon and within 5 minutes, the people are lined up out the door. You get in line to order, then receive a number to sit on your table. When your food... More

This restaurant was recommended by Speedy's Airboat Tours and we were not disappointed! The setting is terrific and the food was great! Every plate we saw coming out of the kitchen looked wonderful and the staff was one of the best!
