Unique food - good for an experience

Had a travelzoo so was not too bad. Daughter tried frog legs (not fried), son tried gator (fried), I had pulled pork sandwich :) Plenty of normal food for the less adventurous food types - salads burgers etc. Total was $48. Excellent service. Very attentive without being bothersome. I would... read more

Food for all quests was less than expected and not fully cooked as requested. Service was less than adequate. The poor air conditioning makes everything worse. The place needs a good cleaning and updating.

So fresh. So timely. So good. Plenty of fish on tacos. Relish and lettuce were very fresh. Service was pleasant and well timed.

We enjoyed it! Stopped in 3p on a Friday. Yes the place is date, but the atmosphere wasn't bad. We had fish/chips and shrimp tacos. Both had great flavor and portions very large. There tartar sauce was yummy with a touch of dill. At the back of the property they have a zoo with snot 8 alligators and parrots. Beyond,... More

After finishing up our air boat ride we redeemed our free lunch voucher( travel zoo). This was simply a $24.00 credit towards your bill, not to shabby. We walk in and their is a seating area that is more open and cool a bar and then an entrance to a more restaurant type seating. We choose the restaurant type seating(booths,... More

This place is in the "boonies", somewhat hard to find unless you're well acquainted with the area, ask around or use a GPS - it's worth it. The menu is extensive, it's basically a Seafood restaurant. The property is on the shores of Lake Jessup, supposedly the most populated lake by alligators. And at night one can see hundreds of... More

The food is average for the casual atmosphere. The place needs some updating, as it is showing signs of age. Menu selections were good, but the fried foods were really greasy. It used to be much better years ago, not sure what changed.

The atmosphere is not noteworthy, it's a fish camp. Looks like old Florida, but not sure the food is any newer. Fried food, blah sides, way overpriced for what you get. 2 for one margaritas saved ot from a one star rating. Think tourist trap, sad. One and done.

This place is a refreshing change from the chain restaurants you'll see along the main highways. The restaurant is just part of a lakeside complex of restaurant, outside bar, gift shop, boat docks, and mini-zoo. The views of Lake Jesup are beautiful, especially in the evening. You can easily see alligators meandering out in the lake. The restaurant is not... More
