We are located on the Barron River, beautiful water side dinning. We pride ourselves in offering our customers fresh local seafood. Our menu has a variety of things to choose from, several vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options as we'll as real angus beef burgers and delicious Ribeye stakes. Our salads are made with organic herbs that we pick daily to provide the freshest bursts of flavor possible. Our ordering method is a little different than a conventional restaurant, you order at the counter and we bring you the food when it is ready. We tend to get extremely busy in season and on some occasions the wait for your food to be delivered can be 25 to 50 minutes. We have entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights for our
customers to relax and enjoy the eclectic environment. Our motto
Is not turning tables, we want to provide our customers with a nice, relaxing pleasurable visit wether it's sitting on our sofas in our outdoor lounge playing backgammon or soaking up the sun on the dock. Hope everyone can stop by and enjoy some amazing food overlooking the Barron river l!!! See y'all soon!!

Best lunch stop in Everglades City

We travel often to Everglades City and in my experience this is the best lunch spot in Everglades City. The food has been consistently excellent and reliable. The restaurant is right on the dock on the Barron River so the setting is fun and scenic. In summary, this is a great lunch stop with great... read more

Another eclectic restaurant with good food, although a draft beer would have gone down well. Well patronized by the local RV population, the restaurant iswell worth a visit.

was cool night so sat inside, was a little confusing about how your order, they need a few signs. But food was great and staff very friendly. I would love to go back and sit outside when weather is warmer.

Second time visiting.....both times food was great!! Late lunch time was not very busy so service was very good. At dinner time, there can be a long wait. For the very rustic look, the food is very good!

Stopped for lunch before airboat tour. 2 couples, with each couple ordering a crab cake appetizer and grouper sandwich. Crab cake was very loosely formed and seemed mostly to be filler. Grouper sandwich filet was size of a deck of cards and smothered in onions. Definitely not "Florida grouper" as it was very thin and most likely some other "sea... More

Complete with a collection of costal oddities, Camellia is a cozy dockside restaurant. We visited for dinner, my partner having the mussels, which he said were tender and flavorful, and myself having their homemade veggie burger, which was large and hand-packed with lots of protein plants and veggies. They also have herb salads, which were not as "herb-y" as I... More

The Camellia Street Grill was just right for Everglades City and we enjoyed the delicious seafood and the location on the river.

Hungry for a bite to eat after your Speedy's airboat ride? Just down the road is this little joint with outside seating and good local food and drinks. Come hungry, leave satisfied.

We ended up here because in the sleepy small town of Everglades City all other places were already closed! We ended up being lucky. The place is very cozy mainly built up using corrugated iron and wooden boards, all lit with christmas lights and neon beer signs. Walls are filled with americana and 9/11 memorial stuff. The staff were friendly... More

This place is a treat for eyes and has great food. We had the herb salad with shrimp and the pulled pork sandwich. Both were really good. We enjoyed the eclectic decor and the views of the airboats across the river.
