Fishing camp restaurant...

Not fancy, food is good, especially the fried Grouper. Saw a little gator swimming right below our table.

The folks at Alligator Cove Airboat Tours referred us to this restaurant--we wanted a place that served alligator. This is indeed a no-frills shack, but the food was worth the stop. The alligator nuggets were not the best we've had, but the frog legs more than compensated for the less than perfect gator. There are several outside tables--they were all... More

We were staying with friends in central Florida and they told us about this place. A great shack on the lake. We had their dinner menu from 4.00pm, fresh oysters on the half shell on ice with all the trimmings, peel and eat shrimp, shrimp and gator tenders and crab dinner. Wonderful. We returned two days later and tried something... More

We were told we had to try this place for the atmosphere, it's basically a shack in a fish camp, and we weren't disappointed! A great setting on the lake with a huge patio and bags of character. It is very busy and service is fast and friendly. Unfortunately, the food just didn't live up to the hype. We started... More

This is a fish camp and the looks can be deceiving but the food is delicious. It will remind you of the "old" Florida. Drinks are good too.

My first opinion of this place "was no way am I eating here". There were fish scales, rubber gloves and clam shells littering the walkway, an outhouse in plain sight and a strange blend of Halloween and Christmas decor... and that was just the outside. The music was rocking the roof of the place and a line formed of people... More

This is an out-of-the-way fishing camp with great clam buckets at the bar and delicious grouper dishes. Indoor and outdoor seating with shucked clams for appy, two-for-one generic drinks. They have the best desserts that are homemade and gigantic - get the carrot cake!
