We arrived for a leisurely Saturday lunch during a trip to Eustis. The tables were either wobbly or dirty (and in some cases both!). We decided to give it a shot, ordered drinks (beer & diet Coke) which were delivered quicky. At that time we ordered our meal, nothing fancy (BLT & Buffalo Chix sandwich). We waited, waited, finished the... More

Curiosity brought us to this restaurant as it had undergone some changes since our first visit. Very dark inside and we had difficulty finding anyone there. Yes, it was supposed to be open. Finally found a server and the average tasting food arrived after a long wait. Needless to say, we will not be back.

Very much a bar atmosphere. Service was great, my Martini was perfect, and the Burger and Fries were out of this world! Easily, one of the best Burgers I've had. We were there for a late lunch, so it was quiet. That's what I prefer. Both of my friends ordered the Chef's Salad, and those salads were enormous! They both... More

Place is pretty old and run down, but that doesn't necessarily mean bad food, so we decided to try it. AC was barely working and it was very warm and stale inside. Ordered gator bites, which were actually pretty good. Our entrees come out and looked decent. I took the top burger bun off, only to find a cockroach crawling... More

First time visiting Eustis. We were just riding around and spotted this place. We read some of the previous reviews and decided to try it. It was a good choice. It's nothing fancy but the food was good and the staff was very friendly. We decided to sit indoors by the window where we enjoyed the view of the lake.

Several times, recently, we have gone here for a meal only to walk away because we can't get service. The big deal breaker was when we went there with an out of state relative who really wanted to try some gator. We were seated, offered drinks, ordered food and then...nothing. We waited for over an hour and never got our... More

We were glad there was a table on the patio as the inside reeked of ancient smoke. Good food and service. Happy hour from 4 to 7.
