Back woodsy but good food

In business since the 50s, probably never renovated since !! But, that is the charm of this Seafood eatery on Lake Pierce . Fun atmosphere, always jam packed.

Coming to this place is a hidden gem of the tourist trail. The atmosphere in the evening is great with vibrant people. Food was average, I tried gator for my first time here at was disappointed with it being so small. But it was all in all a nice place to come

Had Sunday lunch here and would have passed right by if not going with our American friends who said we should look beyond the outside as the food is very good. How right they were. Very extensive menu and service was very good although there were only a few diners as we were there on opening. Can only speak as... More

This place is so out of the way that you won't just stumble upon it but go out of your way to find it for a real treat! This place is quirky and fun. There is a variety of types of people, some real characters so you will find yourself people watching while you enjoy good food at a good... More

While the location is beautiful and the scenery is wonderful, you are in a mobile home park and this is an older venue. The food was good, but not great. My wife found the steak to be fatty and small for the price, however I thought the grouper sandwich was excellent and we both loved the cherry dressing on the... More

Don't expect either high end service or facilities here - it's a backwoods kind of place, very popular with locals and rightly so. The food is very fresh and decent value. OK, the place could be better maintained but they get away with it because it seems a genuinely charming fish camp. The aspect is sweet, right on a little... More

I wasn't at all ready for the Cherry Pocket experience. It looks like a really shabby trailer park from the road and the interior is a delightful hodgepodge of areas leading out to a kinda Tiki bar, exterior seating area... All a bit run down, but nonetheless oozing charm. I went with a local, and I am glad I did,... More

Went there on reccomendations from some locals and it was exactly as they described.Nothing fancy,decent food and old Florida atsmosphere. Not something to go out of your way for but interesting if you're in the area.

Have eaten there many times and have taken friends there. Its a little out of the way but well worth the drive. The menu is has a wide range of dinners and drinks. It is on the water and you can eat outside or in. Its a great place to meet people and dress comfortably.

We finally ate at Cherry Pocket. We went there for lunch today and I cannot praise it enough. I love the atmosphere; it reminds me of the fish camp restaurant that one of my uncles owned when I was a kid. A true old Florida kind of place in appearance. To say it is not fancy is a huge understatement.... More
