Superb.

Friendly, local, enjoyable restaurant. Great food. Lovely setting, overlooking the lake. Good service. It was really nice to find a place that wasn't your typical Orlando food chain. Local people in a local hangout.

Well, hubby has been wanting to go, it's on a lake, small one. We sat out on the enclosed patio. Went for breakfast, usual breakfast menu. Mine was cooked as ordered. There were only 2 other parties there when we were there at 0900 on Saturday. The place looked like a dump. Server never came back to check how our... More

Short version: Overpriced and barely palatable, like adding $30+ to a Long John Silver meal left on the table overnight. Nice outside ambiance with view of lake. Recommendation: Smuggle in a sandwich in your pocket and order just a soda and drink it outside while you nibble your secret pocket sandwich and admire the water. Details.... fish was oily, yet...

It's not too fancy with a casual setting and a beautiful outdoor atmosphere, this was my second visit but first time with husband and we are already planning to return. The crab cake appetizer was delicious as well as the fried shrimp and Fried coconut shrimp!

Excellent seafood!!! I highly recommend the crab cakes and the "fish fry". The service was outstanding! Don't be fooled by the appearance of the building- it is definitely a "diamond in the rough"! We had our meal on the porch and enjoyed the breeze off the water.

Had crab cakes for appetizer and they were awesome! The Fish Fry was great as well. This is a laid back local place but don't let the outside appearance deceive you! Will definitely go back!

I had a Groupon for this place so my hubby and I decided to try it for a date night. We got there and the interior looked fine and it was right on the water. They had a little alcove in the back so we decided to sit out there. There were christmas lights hanging, but there were obviously broken... More

The food was outstanding - a great value. We had a party of 7 and we had an appetizer, meals and desserts and it was very reasonable. The location and building are not the best, but would return when back in the area. Would recommend for great food and the view.

A friend and I look for out of the way places to try. We happened upon Julie's and decided to give it a try. She had the all you can eat Alaskan Pollock and I had the Grouper fingers. Both meals were delicious, but we agreed mine was tastier. Don't let the funky appearance put you off. The view overlooking... More

This is a very small restaurant with excellent food and an excellent location right on a lake. Meals at our table included Grouper sandwich, Grouper fingers, Reuben and lobster bisque All were excellent. Staff was prompt and friendly.. All good.
