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!!

“Stone crabs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

You really need to have stone crabs when in the stone crab capital of the US. They were delicious! Our group also had the she crab soup, mussels, shrimp and crab cake. All were good...the crab cake has too much stuff in the mixture. The skinny onion rings were yummy. A strange method for ordering, service and paying. Great location on the Barron River watching the world go by.

“great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Visited when staying in everglades city for one night. Sat inside in the screened restaurant and were offered bug spray when we arrived as we were told "this is Florida". Order at the bar and decent menu specializing in fish and seafood. We had steak s/w and blue cheese burger both very good. Wine and beer both OK and all in all we enjoyed our visit and good value for money. Would re commend.

“A sleeper!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Who would have ever thought to find such a delightful restaurant in Everglades City. We thought we'd take a chance on someplace different when this restaurant kept popping up on our searches. It's a great honey feeling, grab a menu from the basket, seat yourself and order at the counter. To start the beer was ice cold, which was wonderful on such a warm afternoon. It was fun sitting on the unimpressive deck watching the airboats go by. But, the real surprise came when our food was served. My grilled grouper sandwich was lightly breaded and lightly basted with an orange citrus sauce. Topped with a nice slice of tomato, lettuce on a great pretzel bun. The sweet potato fries weren't just the skinny ones you get in most places, but big wedges and cooked to a the. My husbands crab cake sandwich was probably the best he's ever tasted and the hush puppies were to die for! Don't miss this little sleeper of a place if you're ever down this way!

“Delightfully delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Stopped in during a visit to Everglades City and it became a highlight of the entire trip. You MUST try the key lime milkshake. They literally blend up a piece of pie into this amazing drink/dessert! I must also mention that they had one of the best vegetarian options that we encountered at any of the restaurants we ate at during our trip (according to my vegetarian friend)! The food came in nice, large portions and was perfectly prepared. I cannot say enough about the quality of the food and the charm of this location!
