What a disappointment to see that the former Ike's Old Florida Kitchen is under new management and has been turned into another hum-drum tiki bar. The old Ike's was a sedate, quiet restaurant on the river: tables had tablecloths, glasses, etc. Now the tables are lacquer-covered, and drinks are served in styrofoam cups. Maybe some day if we're in the... More

Visited about a year ago, owner had review taken down, but they turned away my business during their posted hours of operation because they "closed early that night." While it looked like everyone was just drinking at the bar. Turned away probably $100 meal, and in a private message told me I was better off using my $100 on a... More

Reviewed this when it first opened as bad atmosphere, incompetent staff and indifferent management. Does not surprise me that the owner just posted a sign that restaurant closed without any warning. Hope that someone comes in to run it and attract a younger clientele to revitalize the area

This place was recommended by our fabulous hosts at Pine Lodge, and we were not disappointed. Situated on the river, the food service was prompt and extremely tasty and very reasonably priced. This was our first time in Florida and our first meal, and it was a really good place to start. It's in a very quiet location, and we... More

This restaraunt was recommended by the owners of Pine Lodge B & B and can't be beat! Though we had just a few minute wait for our table , from the hostess to the bar tendress and our knowledgeable waiter the entire staff made us feel very welcome. The location of the lodge was very close to the B &... More

This is an old Florida Fish camp turned into a restaurant, atmosphere is perfect dining while looking at the shrimp boats going out for their nightly fishing. Bird and fish jumping in the river. Our meals were cooked to perfection. Great place and a must see Driving down "follow your dreams highway" from the movie Elvis Presley made years back.

On the river, big views of nature. Really nice food. It would be good food anywhere, but out in the middle of the Nature Coast jungle, its great. Ike also runs a tour boat up the river that is a great trip with explanations of the local fauna and flora and good stories about this quaint old town. Restaurant is... More

We happened across this restaurant by accident and would not have changed anything... Their famous pan fried grouper was everything the menu promised and our friend had the mouth watering quail... We will definitely be back!!!
