Lots of fun, good food, very nice folks and sparkling (women's) restroom. Worth the drive. We arrived late but they welcomed us anyway, no rush at all.

Finally made to the famous Cherry Pocket Shak (should be rightly spelled SHACK) on this beautiful Saturday of Nov. 29. This place is a bit hard to find and once you do and drive up the lane to the location which is also labeled as a fishing camp you have to pass a lot of very run down and dumpy... More

After being told of this Shak we drove for an hour to eat there. The place is great, friendly staff and the location great. The food though..... I didn't like it too much. The first few bites were very nice but then I just had enough of that taste and didn't like it any more. I ordered something of the... More

Been here twice and both times it was delicious! Large portions, so be hungry! Very good catfish. You can be casual or dressy, no one will mind, very layed back and friendly atmosphere. A real hole in the wall that will surprise you!

The place looks kind of scary as you approach and you will be thinking were are we going? But once you get there and walk around a bit you feel more comfortable. We went for my sons birthday we really love oysters and they were more affordable than the place we usually go so we figured we would give it... More

Need a menu and kitchen overhaul. The place is awesome with the water and then gators and the deck. But the food is just nasty. Nothing seems fresh and I was sick after eating there. I wish it would improve.

Overall this restaurant was good. Service was fine and friendly. Portions were good sized, so you won't go hungry. My biggest problem was the menu. The Grouper was Grooper - misspelled for a reason -- it was NOT Grouper but rather Basa fish ( a farm raised fish from Vietnam). The Crab was Krab -- not crab but rather imitation... More

It ain't fancy...so don't ask for the wine list or expect obscure imported beers. Cherry Pocket is all about fish and meat dishes with simple sides served on a lakeside dock...about 20 feet from the gators. Service isn't rushed and the atmosphere is relaxed. There's live music in the evenings and the bar is full of friendly, local folks (some... More
