"Old Florida" food and atmosphere. You should definitely try the daily specials...they're different and delicious. My favorite? Why, Miss Linda's Shrimp & Grits, of course!!

Having lived in the area for 10 years and always wanting to go to Stumpknockers I finally had the opportunity for a friends birthday celebration. We had reservations for 12 and upon arrival the table was ready for us. The waitress immeadiately took our cocktail order and explained the specials of the day of which there were five. After placing... More

We're locals who have eaten here many times over the years because it WAS the best cat fish & other seafood around. Well it ain't good anymore ... we were served crab cake that was cold on the inside (obviously frozen rather than fresh) and the catfish was tough & tasteless. Regrettably The replacement order of catfish was no better.... More

Stopped here for a cocktail before dinner. The bartender was even making old fashioned brandy alexanders complete with nutmeg! Had my old fashion down to a science, perfect. Nice conversation with friendly local senior couples.

This was by far one of the worst dining experiences of my life. Waitress (Missy) was curt and impolite from the moment we sat down. In the middle of taking our food order, she left saying she was paged that someone else's food was ready. When she came back to take our order (10 minutes later) my nephew ordered crab... More

We have been to this place several times over the past couple of years and only had a couple of misses. However, I just cannot get used to sweet, warm cole slaw swimming in dressing. Sorry just my preference, but for safety sake I know slaw is supposed to be kept cold.The catfish I had was nice and tasty. Crispy,... More

We eat at Stumpknocker's on the Square a couple times a month. My husband loves the all you can eat catfish! We've tried several seafood dishes, all which were very good. It's hit and miss with their specials. Some are excellent and some just good but have never had a bad meal here. Their peanut butter pie is to die... More

A first visit was for lunch and I was NOT impressed with the Alligator skin on the wall. The décor was good but, not into seeing dead animals while I eat. Besides that I truly enjoyed the Burger. It was juicy and cooked perfect. The lettuce was chopped up into tiny pieces so imagine lettuce all over the place! The... More
