Basic Food

This is not a fancy restaurant, but the food is fine for lunch. We often eat here after a bike ride on the nearby Withlacoochee Trail.

Its been a while since we've been there. hopefully things have improved. owner did call me to offer us complimentary meal blaming it all on the fact it was a holiday but to tell the truth we didn't want to bother. Its hard to understand the poor quality of cooking and service because we enjoy going to their other place... More

This was my first time at Stumpknockers in many years. The place has personality, but the food I had this visit was terrible. I ordered the Catfish Sandwich, advertised as their specialty and that people from all over the country come to Stumpknockers to eat. The food looked very presentable and was served nice and hot and I was eager... More

We stopped in for dinner by chance and were really surprised with the old Florida charm and friendly, efficient servers. The Grouper was perfect and a large serving. Definitely will be on our list of excellent restaurants in Florida!

On this warm and sunny Florida day, we decided to ride to Inverness and sample the fare provided by Stumpknockers on the Square in Inverness, FL. What an odd name of a restaurant, so I asked the owner about the name’s origin and this is what he said: "The 'Stumpknocker' is a fish that has long been a part of... More

We went here late one evening and sat on the patio and had a grouper dinner. One was blackened and one was grilled. The fish was local and fresh. Had a wonderful time and the wait staff was great.

We had a very specific request for Stumpknockers fried shrimp under odd circumstances for a special occasion. They not only met our expectations, they were also incredibly warm and accommodating throughout the process. The shrimp were outstanding and the staff made sure to meet our somewhat unusual demands. We really appreciated their cooperation and their delicious (very large meaty) shrimp!

we had good food and the ambiance was nice but enjoy stumpknockers on the river much much more. sitting out on the deck with the river flowing by just adds to the already good food.

Way too much breading on the shrimp I ordered. You may like a garden salad with iceberg lettuce a cucumber and a few little tomatoes for your salad but I am tired of that kind of meal. It is old fashioned and out of date. At least make some good slaw and not heaped with mayonnaise. Please try a few... More
