Gator nuggets & grouper tacos!

Found out about this restaurant while on a trip with friends. It is definitely a unique atmosphere as it shares the property with a RV/cabin park that is on the water. There's even a dock with multiple spots to park your pontoon boat. My group ordered the gator nuggets (the gator was brought in... read more

Not one for us, we went for a early lunch and very heavy, deep fried food. Maybe we all choose the wrong dishes but he fod was not great

This is the 2nd visit in the last month. Enjoyed the grouper sandwich and again had great service! Prices are reasonable based upon the item ordered. We'll definitely go back as this restaurant is now on our list :-)

Very rustic, great food. Do not miss the seafood nachos! We were there on a Saturday, they had a guy singing karaoke to Jimmy Buffet and a few country artists. Not the best talent, but extremely entertaining! Don't be turned off by the trailer park you have to enter to get there, this is an old Florida fishing camp.

Seek out this little gem of a secluded fish camp. We enjoyed the blackened grouper and the hospitality given. Traveled during a pouring rain and was well worth the trip.

A favorite of our family. We met 8 of our friends there. We enjoyed the great food and especially the awesome service from Jessie, our server.

Well the servers and the baby alligator we saw in the lake were the highlight of this place!! My steak was very fatty and not cooked how I ordered it. I don't think anyone of our party of 7 was happy with their meal. Very bland and not much flavor. I think the best part of the meal was the... More

I had never eaten at a "fish camp" before... had never even heard of a fish camp until visiting friends in Kissimmee. This is an odd but interesting kinda place. The gator nuggets and the grilled grouper were ok as was the key lime pie, but it was their signature salad was actually the highlight of the meal. It's one... More

I used to remember when cherry pocket had some of the best food around. It was a great place to visit hang out, have a good meal, and do some karaoke occasionally! Recently the food has gone downhill. The service is still incredible and the girls make you feel very welcomed! The price they're charging for their food is a... More

It has become tradition to go to Cherry Pockets. Arriving at the shak may surprise you.... But don't despair... Beyond those doors are some of the friendliest, fun people! The pasta is amazing! I have been there twice while visiting my Mom in Florida. We tried the gator bites. I love sitting out back on the patio. It's a must... More
