We felt we were enjoying a locals place. Tried alligator and turtle and got fried catfish. Our waitress was so nice and friendly. Service was good. The facility is dated but by no means poorly maintained. I don't know if the food is the best in the area but we enjoyed ourselves after a airboat tour. And being from the... More

Great fried catfish, yummy mashed potatoes with white gravy, and corn on the cob also very good. So much catfish had to take with me for later! Yum! Husband got fried scallops and was very happy. He said tasted very fresh and lightly breaded, very good.

I have been coming to this Restaurant for over 20 years. It is absolutely the BEST country restaurant in the U.S.A!! Besides having the BEST catfish in Florida, they also have a wide variety of other food to suit everyone. From Hamburgers, Chicken and Steak to Catfish, Frog Legs and Shrimp. The Staff is the best around!!! Many have been... More

A true hidden gem. A local restaurant where the catfish is king. an ALL you can eat meal for a reasonable price. They also serve Turtle and Gator bites Either as an appetizer or an entre. Portions are oversized. Save room for the peach cobbler for dessert.

We went here on the recommendation of our airboat guide and it was worth it! We wanted to try alligator and catfish, our waitress brought us a sample of catfish in case we did not like it first which was very nice. The alligator was great and lightly breaded before being fried and the catfish also had a very light... More

I was a little leery with the restaurant's name but they had many non-catfish items (although I did try the catfish and it was quite good). Much of the food is fried, which I normally avoid, but I wanted to try the alligator and frogs legs and they only came fried. The alligator was kind of blah, but maybe that's... More

we go to the catfish place everytime we are in the area. Our favorites are the fried red snapper, fried shrimp and fried clams. Some items are better than others but the vast majority is far above expectations.
