Perfect lunch spot on a Sunday afternoon! Recommend by the home owner of the Airbnb we were staying in. Exactly what we were looking for before heading home. Thanks Dave, great recommendation!

Saw this place while on a boat tour, knew we had to go here! Journey was our waitress, she was knowledgeable, personable and answered all my questions. I have food allergies, and she made recommendations based on them. The food was good. my teenagers had...the gumbo, which they loved (we are northerners). Hubby had swiss/mushroom burger. He said it was very good. The homeade chips were delectable! I had the tropical salad with blackened shrimp and house made mango vinaigrette, yum!! We played corn hole on the sand, great family bonding time! Come via foot, boat, car, skidoo, or water taxi! (fyi-can catch water taxi across the river) Definitely enjoy!!More

Place was packed with 200+ people with no attempt at social distancing. Servers didn't wear a mask or anyone else. Not a place I would recommend during COVID.

Friendly staff. Fried pickles to die for! Delicious food! Indoor and outdoor seating. Tiki...bar. Our server Meghan was very sweet, personable and attentive. We highly recommend.More

Sat outside by the river on a beautiful day. Service was fast with a great drink menu along with food. They also had lunch specials including a Jerk Chicken bowl that was incredible. Others had Shrimp and a Cuban that everyone agreed was excellent. Prices...were fair for the portion and the local. A steel drum group was playing during lunch which was a nice touch. Restrooms were clean, which is always a good indicator to me. Glad we stopped.More

Visiting our friends who took us there for lunch. All 4 of us finished every morsel of food: pressed cuban, fresh fried clam strips, gumbo bowl and tropical salad were all very good. Watching the boats go by on a beautiful Florida day.

We really enjoyed lunch today with our extended family. We're from out of town, our first time here was amazing. The food, ambiance and the festive music and decorations along with the staff. We will definitely come back.

Located right on the water. Gorgeous location. Great for kids. Good was awesome. Had a grouper basket. Fish was so fresh. The homemade chips are fantastic. Our server was very friendly and efficient. The bang bang shrimp were delicious too. Going back soon.

Great looking place on the river. Lots of seating and boat docks. The food was good. Our server was terrible. There was two other servers working around us and they gave great service to their customers. Ours dropped food, got soda refill then disappeared. Had...to ask other server to find our check. Bad service gets bad tip! Will try one more time.More

I'm not sure either if they serve gluten free as no one in our group asked that day. But they have a pretty big menu so is possible. Just call ahead.
