The views at this place are great, the food is good if you are a big cajon fan with a hint of swamp in you haha. I stopped here passing by, the staff are all young, typical, and some acted that way, I am not sure if I got a refill the entire time, and the chairs are wicker maybe?... More

Haven't been here in years, never appreciated the location as much as I do now. What a "cool" place! It is set back on the ICW and feels like you are in the swamps of days ago. The service and food were equally good and it was a fun evening for the family!

I only stopped with my fiancé to grab a drink and an appetizer. Lemonade and gator bites were to die for. Wow. It's kind of strange because there are random cats wandering around but the feel of the place is just great. Great view, great people.

The catch of the day was a bit pricey[$21.00] so we opted for the fried shrimp.Good choice - the shrimp was lightly battered and fresh.The sides were tasty and the garlic cheese bread was too good. Cowboy's sits on on tidal marsh and has a... More

One of the most particular restaurants I've ever been to! I thought it was the perfect place to visit in North Florida. It is situated in a marsh, so you can enjoy an incredible atmosphere and view, late during the evening it is not uncommon to see some animals if sitting outside on the veranda. The whole place had simple... More

The view on the intracoastal is nice. But, honestly, it's usually crowded, and the food and service are just OK. For the price, there are other places in town we prefer much better. If you're looking for a nice seafood meal with an ambiance, I'd recommend trying Creekside, better ambiance, better service, better food.

Good seafood. Parking is terrible we had to wait in line to get a parking space. But the food was awesome and worth the wait. Would definitely go back again. We had shrimp oysters an crab. Very good and not too expensive.
