Description: We are located on the Barron River, beautiful water side dinning. We pride ourselves in offering our customers fresh local seafood. Our menu has a variety of things to choose from, several vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options as we'll as real angus beef burgers and delicious Ribeye stakes. Our salads are made with organic herbs that we pick daily to provide the freshest bursts of flavor possible. Our ordering method is a little different than a conventional restaurant, you order at the counter and we bring you the food when it is ready. We tend to get extremely busy in season and on some occasions the wait for your food to be delivered can be 25 to 50 minutes. We have entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights for our customers to relax and enjoy the eclectic environment. Our motto Is not turning tables, we want to provide our customers with a nice, relaxing pleasurable visit wether it's sitting on our sofas in our outdoor lounge playing backgammon or soaking up the sun on the dock. Hope everyone can stop by and enjoy some amazing food overlooking the Barron river l!!! See y'all soon!!

“Fresh - wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

As you walk by the garden on your way to the front door - say "HI" to the greens. They will be in your salad. Every bite is different, fresh, exploding with taste.
Ate here 2X and both times excellent. Fresh fish tacos, burger designed to be eaten, slaw with a very different base, grouper salad. 6 of us and everyone enjoyed their meal.
Yes it's 'rustic'.. yes you stand in line to order... wine is served in plastic cups and beer in bottles. So what, the food is soooo good. And yes, this is tourist city during the winter, but the prices were very reasonable.

“just great and cozy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Great food in rustic atmosphere. We spent both evenings of our stay there. The place to be after a long day in nature.

“Frustrating - food great but service not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Food was almost exceptional - the burger was top 3 I've ever had and my wife loved the catfish.

Trouble was the starters came up only 3 minutes before the mains and then we had a 45 minute wait for desert, having to remind them 3 times (when they served up people who had ordered after us).

We have read other reviews saying about the service, and whilst in there we saw 2 other tables complaining about receiving mains before starters. Expect the worst and you might be pleasantly surprised - going early looks like the least risk!

This could have been one of the best meals we ever had, but rushing the starters so we could eat our cooling mains ruined it.

Even so I would recommend going here to eat.
