Had lunch here twice while while on holiday in Florida. We absolutely loved it, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We tried the fish tacos, fried green tomatoes and gator bites. Will definitely visit again, it's such a charming place.

You feel like you are in the bayou. Cherry Pocket is a rehabbed fish camp in an RV camp ground. It is a local joint where the locals hang out. It looks like a shack that has been added on to and that only enhances the charm of the "Kountry Klub". There is indoor seating that is attached to the... More

Liked our take out so much the first time decided to get it again in the same week but that was not so good. No herbed butter came with the bread and the house salad dressing tasted like melted fruit sherbet it was pretty awful. Crab cake was ok but wouldn't order again. Fish pastas were all very good.

This place is very unique & interesting. My family always loves coming here. We went on a Friday night & there was live music. The food is very good! The cherry vanilla salad dressing is so delicious! Dessert is a must too! Even if you have to take it home & eat it later. This is a very casual place.

I'm from this small town and Cherry Pocket is a place most locals travel to. It's far from fancy but the food is always great and the atmosphere reminds you you're in the backwoods! The portions are large, especially the pasta dishes. My personal favorite is the shrimp fettuccine. However, the A/C isn't your typical setup so the place can... More

Cherry Pockets is about the most "quaint" restaurant you will ever find. It is an old Florida Fish camp. Very casual and rustic. The servers are always attentive. Most of the things on the menu are very good---the blackened "grooper" is one of my favorites. I ordered the Crab Cakes based on another Trip Advisor recommendation--and had to send them... More

The Cherry Pocket is fish camp type of restaurant. So, you expect some "fish camp" ambience. That said, we were disappointed that our outside table was not wiped free dust or other outside detritus. The waitress was friendly and well informed about the menu. Our fried oysters appetizer was good but both entrees were less than desirable. My grouper was... More

Have eaten there a few times, and always enjoyed it, not a real pretty site from the outside, but great food, and atmosphere, just a good old Florida fish camp.

Thank Cindy W
