Overindulging in Florida must include a trip to Cherry Pocket.. Be prepared to be entertained, enlightened, overwhelmed while enjoying a very delicious meal..

Went to eat at Cherry Pocket Steak and Seafood House after doing the airboat ride at Lake Wales. It was everything you could have wanted....quaint, reasonable prices, large portions and great food. Their Gator Bites and blackened grouper sandwiches are the best! Loved their T-Shirts as well.

Don't let the looks of this place fool you, it is amazing. We arrived right around 5 on a Wednesday evening and were seated right away. Our server was very attentive and the food arrived quickly. The portions are large and food is delicious! I had the crabcakes, and the others in my family had the beer battered shrimp (which... More

Don't let the look of the place or the BMW's and Mercede's in the parking lot turn you away. If you like good seafood in a "quaint" dive bar on the water, this is the place. We've had so many items from the menu that we liked, I don't know exactly what to recommend. The grouper is excellent, on the... More

I've eaten here several times but this time the food was not eatable, the wait time to get our food was ridiculous and the managers could have cared less. Kudos to our server. She stayed positive and continously apologized to us. Gloria, the bartender, was terrific. Her drinks are wonderful.

We have been to Cherry Pocket several times in the past, both in a 4-person group and larger. Our last experience was not good. We had a group of 11. (They do not take reservations). Our server was very attentive, but had no control over when orders came out. It took well over an hour for our meals which came... More

2 hours to get food. We was not told. Lots of mad / hungry people leaving. Was good last time. So sad. We were told kitchen help quit. It a business, can't let employees run your business.

Sent 3 dishes (scallops dinner , catfish dinner and seafood Alfredo) back inedible...10% taken off by management questioning our knowledge in food preperation (previous restaurant owners and world traveler). Our waitress was very kind-even asked if we wanted dessert after clearing uneaten food away-spunky she was. Previous visits were fine-enough so to bring out of towners to but after this... More

Don't let the looks of the place put you off. It is a lakeside, eat-inside-or-outside, bar & grill, and the food was very good, with cheap prices, and very friendly staff. I got the grilled grouper entree with two sides, at lunch time, which was only about $10.99, and you could get buy-one-get-one drinks! My friend loved the crab cake... More
