This is the restaurant that time forgot. It is located in the middle of a trailer park. The inside is very shabby. I shudder when I visualize what the kitchen must be like. There were five in our party. We sat inside rather than outside. Based on the look of the place, I was reluctant to order any of the... More

The food was served pretty fast. We waited almost an hour for a table, but it was a Friday night. It was really busy. Our food was good and our server was friendly. I will visit again.

This is the second time I've been to the Cherry Pocket (I was there ten years ago with two friends); still trying to be a dump and they are successful at it. The location is in a trailer park (too bad for the trailer park) next to a lake (nice lake). Most of the clientele have more tattoos than teeth.... More

You will drive up and then want to drive away. Stay for the great fish and friendly staff. Don't go for a fancy experience, it's very rustic! The Hill, I.e. restroom, was rustic too. We waited quite a while for our food while there on a Saturday night.

If you're looking for a local place, you've found it. Definitely not your upscale fancy eatery. A local hangout/bar with great food. We sat outside listened to music and enjoyed the evening. Prices seemed a little high for the local atmosphere. Very busy so service was slow, but the servers we're hustling.

Very eclectic atmosphere. I'll leave it at that. If you're looking for a place where a surly, 75-year-old, version of Daisy Duke waits on you, this is it! The food is good (not great) but expensive. Having said that, the portion sizes are large. I ordered crab cakes and could not finish both. BTW, the alligator appetizer is unusual. Worth... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. This place looks like a dump from the outside, but it's one of those good ole fashion Florida seafood joints. Not a family place but a good hangout for us guys on a golf trip.

They normally don't serve crab cakes for lunch, but 6 of us from Ohio had rode from the Daytona area, on our motorcycles to enjoy - so we were able to eat what we rode the distance for! My in-laws once lived nearby & so loved taking us to this place!

This place is an experience! Good food, good service, , interesting setting, good live music. We sat outside and had to put up with a smokey environment. A place everyone should visit.
