“High Prices, Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

This place had great reviews thus far so we ventured in for lunch last week. They are obviously known for their sandwiches, and the person behind the counter touted them as far superior to places like Subway. My wife and daughter opted for their 4 inch sandwiches which were about $6 each. They were very disappointed with the skimpy amount of meat on the sandwiches--especially at the price we were charged.

I tried their teriyaki chicken rice bowl--also about $6. I was surprised when it was brought to the table in a rectangular "take-away" box. I opened it to find a bed of steamed rice covered with bits of tasteless processed chicken and "out-of-the-can" green beans and carrots. The entire entree was smothered in a very thick and sweet "teriyaki" sauce. I was very disappointed in the dish and ate very little.

“Fun place to eat with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I really like going to this place because of the decor, with all of the fake swamp grass hanging from the ceiling, the board walk to order on and theme of swamp gators it is a fun experience. Its a sandwich place and i have never been disappointed when i have eaten there, the Reuben is really good, the cheesy potato bites are fun and everything is priced decently (maybe a bit on the pricey side). Overall i would say you need to at least check it out once.
