Whoever the young man was on the grill, give gim a raise! Expertly cooked med rare bison burger and a touch over on the ribeye but it was a end cut, not his fault. Excellent service as well.

Wow!! My husband and I shared the captains platter for lunch for $24. It was plenty of food and was absolutely fabulous!! Very lightly breaded sea scallops, huge gulf shrimp, white fish, unbelievably good hush puppies! Our friends had fish sandwich and shrimp PO boy, both delicious!! Highly recommend this place for anyone who loves seafood!!

Their Boston clam chowder is the best you could ever have. If you enjoy the river and spring life, you'll love the inside of the restaurant. It brings the nature of high springs Florida into the restaurant for your enjoyment.

Wonderful meals and service. Very comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. I had prime rib with a crab/smoked gouda topping...yummy. Wine was excellent. I don't know our server's name, but he was very knowledgeable about the food and wine. Great place.

What a "find" in our exploration of north central Florida! The food was excellent from the shrimp bruschetta, the perfectly cooked Bison Burger, the excellent Tennessee Tenderloin, and the two different desserts, chocolate mousse and the Blantons' Peanut Brittle Ice Cream Pie. Our waitress was very helpful, cheerful, and attentive. The live music was a bonus and we would definitely... More
