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!

Went there during the day right when they opened and it was still dirty from the night before. Service was slow since the only person was cleaning and working hard before the rush came in. Fries were horrible and beer was hot. BUT, another time when I went here a week prior and the service was great and the atmosphere... More

My grandparents,parent and sister have been telling me about this place for some time now. While vacationing from Michigan we stopped in there it is off the beaten path but well worth the drive. The food was delicious! I had the key west grouper, the fish was bigger then the plate. My son loved the gator. Atmosphere was great to... More

Can't get much more authentic Florida than this. A bit out-of-the way but if you want the total package (clientele, view, atmosphere and food) this is the place. Leave your attitude at home.

Have been here twice. Food was just average and felt like it hadn't been cleaned in years. Smokers just outside on the dock so no water views for those who don't smoke. Have not been back.

A recommendation from a trusted old time Floridian. This place has old Florida charm -a truly fun atmosphere. Don't miss the gator bites, fried green tomatoes, crab cakes and catfish

We have been here before and both times, the impression was meh. I will say that my niece, who came from Texas, loved their Fried Green Tomatoes and they were not on the lunch menu. When she mentioned that, the cook made them for her! They were amazing along with her blackened catfish. My husband had their blackened chicken and... More
