We found this place on Trip Advisor when we were camping in High Springs back in December. We sat at the bar since there was no more outdoor seating. The bartender that served us was incredible. (sadly I do not remember her name, I think Rosanna?)

Out of seemingly nowhere comes a charming, quaint Main Street and busy, charming restaurant. The sportsman atmosphere is complete with distressed paneling, outdoor scenes of fishing , canoeing and diving . As great as the ambiance is, it is the food that makes the mark of excellence. Two of us ordered burgers that were done to perfection, generously proportioned and... More

We made the mistake of going there our first night in town, a Tuesday night when they have half-price burgers. We waited over 20 minutes for our seat. Food was good, would have been pricey if we paid regular price. The next day we discovered the little Spanish restaurant around the corner with no wait, quieter atmosphere, more interesting food,...

Went there to great some family members on 1/2 price burger day. All 4 of us tried the 4 different burgers offered. Good chunk of meat, came with fries and sliced pickle. Not complaints. Hamburger was done as requested. I was the only one to finish mine. Everyone else needed to go boxes. Wimps.

Loved the moonshine cocktails. The interior is very beautiful. Our waiter was great. The food was good. After our meal we could take our drink to patio area to listen to music. But, with no reservation you have to sit at a tiny bar stool area. I needed my distance glasses to see the band. I didn't like the bland... More

Always a great gathering place with cheerful servers, and with outside seating and music on occasion. Well worth the visit and will return often.

We has lunch outdoors here on a perfect Saturday! The food was excellent and the service good. My husband had the Sloppy Joe, which was the daily special and I had a club sandwich. Portions are big--took half the sandwich home. The only slight negative to outdoor seating is that there can be a lot of traffic noise, as the... More
