“Great service, food and local mingling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

We walked over as it was the bar/restaurant right next to our hotel and glad we did. The owner Todd is amazing, greats you, seats you and makes you feel so very welcomed. The waitress staff if efficient and so friendly and yes we tried the sample platter of Alligator. Very very good, I was surprissed. Lots of tvs to catch your sporting event and Todd makes sure that what you want to watch is on the TV near you. Lots of locals, you can tell they love it there and every "knows your name"....my kind of place!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012 via mobile

Place is great. Outstanding food, great service and a very cool atomshere. Plenty of TV's playing sports. The owner pays special attention to all the patrons and the man works his tail off! Fish and chips is awesome. Highly recommend.

“Good Place with Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

This place was near our hotel, Residence Inn right next door, and so it was handy to walk over and eat and have a couple of drinks.
The Gator meat was the big draw. My husband had the Gator Tail basket, blackened, and it was very good and tender. Portion wasn't that big.
I ordered the fish and it was great, not covered with a lot of thick batter. With 5 large pieces I had lots to share with my husband when his gator was gone.
Good reasonable place with good service. We sat outside on a beautiful night.
