We only went there once. I tried to order one thing that was on the menu. They didn't have it. I tried to order something else, they didn't have it. If we were not with another family who liked this placed, we would have left.

Cannot say enough about the Blackwater River; it's beautiful and you can have a relaxing time on it, boating, canoeing, kayaking, etc. One of the most beautiful rivers I've seen.

We went kayaking on the river and had a great time. The water was clean, calm and there were plenty of places to stop and rest. One of the places we stopped was a little swamp preserve where there is supposedly alligators.
