Saw a sign on I 75 for this place. Wanting something different than that same old tired off highway food we stopped here. Food was great with very reasonable price. Eating on the Veranda was an added bonus. It is now on my list of...More

Stopped here on our route to Florida when I was craving some seafood. The food was great, big portions, had to take some home for a later meal. The day was beautiful we should have sat outside on the porch and had our meal there.

We tried this new to us restaurant while traveling to Anna. Maria Island. We were impressed with the extensive menu and excellent service. I especially enjoyed the fresh Kale salad and my grouper. My husband had creamy grits that he described as incredible!
