We were recommended to eat here from our boat captain and decided to have dinner here. The special was Alligator, turtle, frogs legs and catfish ;-) with chips of course Service was good and food was deep fried in a crispy batter so you needed the waitress to point out what you were eating. The did of course do more... More

My family and I were visiting my cousin and she recommended this place for dinner on a Thursday night. It was pretty busy so it took a few minutes for our waitress to appear but it wasn't too long of a wait (plus we weren't in a hurry!). We ordered drinks and an appetizer of fried green tomatoes - we... More

Wow! Found this in a coupon book for Orlando and it was advertised where the locals eat with a 10o/o coupon. I love places that are not chain and we entered the address in my phone and took off for we weren't sure where. We were not disappointed , knew immediately we were at a local spot when several of...

Visited this place with a group of friends. I had their catfish dinner. They're small strips of fried catfish. It wasn't anything special. However you do get generous portions for lunch. The hushpuppies were very good. I got mixed reviews from everyone in the group. It was very busy when we had arrived and still just as busy when we... More

Our family visited this restaurant at the recommendation of our tour guide, Dennis, from Wild Florida Airboats, and thought it was great! It was obviously a local favorite judging from the people there. We had catfish and gator tail - food was well prepared and delicious! We are planning to return to Florida in February, 2015 and will definitely return... More

Visited following recommendation from Scott (Orlando airboat tours). Coming from the UK and keen to experience something good, local and not Disney for a change - this fitted the bill. Had the fun of eating catfish, gator, frogs legs etc. You could tell from the attendance by locals that this is a valued restaurant. The only interesting/strange thing is how... More

The service was good, but the food was over cooked. I have been here twice and don't find the urge to return. If I do return I will not eat the chicken.

We ate here after our amazing "Wild Willy's Airboat ride" and saved 10%. The batter on the fried shrimp had such a light & crispy taste! The best my sister, Mom and I had ever tasted. The hush puppies with honey melted in our mouth (we have never had it with honey before-- a must try)! The coleslaw was fresh... More

I love to eat here whenever I am in town. The food is great! I enjoy the old style Florida decor and the availability of fried turtle!! The catfish will not disappoint. This location is better than the Apopka location and a better value too.

On National Catfish Day my husband and I ate here. He got more than catfish. His plate included gator, turtle, frog legs, clams and catfish. He got slaw and hush puppies. I ordered catfish without bones, salad, baked potato and hush puppies. Good was hot and excellent. Service was great. Comfortable and clean atmosphere. We will definitely go back.
