The food was excellent, the service was a little slow, but the food made it possible to overlook the slow server.

They make very good mixed drinks. There chili was also very good but not at all spicy. There chips and queso could be better. Chips was stale.

Waitress refused to wear mask on outside porch. Menus old and used many times. Not a safe restaurant during pandemic.

The food was good, the portions generous and the prices reasonable. Why then just one star? None of the staff or patrons were wearing masks or social distancing. When I asked, I was told the governor terminated all restrictions in Florida in spite of COVID...surging in the state. All other restaurants we have visited since we arrived in the state 3 days ago still practice social distancing and all staff are wearing masks in spite of the gov's incredibly unwise action. Obviously the management of these other restaurants care for the safety of their staff and customers while this establishment does not apply common sense. We will not be back.More

We had a large assortment of food with the group we were with and not one item was bad! We will stop back again - it is no wonder they have high ratings. This is not an upscale restaurant – more of a historical old...Florida bar. Food – Fish-N-Chips (better plan on sharing) Sweat Potato Fries, Fried Green Beans, Boneless Wings. And – I would say some of the best Buffalo Wings you can find!!! Be sure to ask how they can be prepared – you will have many, many options. If you are in the area – you should make it a point to stop.More

The outside porch would allow your pet to come as long as they are quiet and friendly. One afternoon I brought my dog. The waitress didn't seem to mind. She was kind and brought a small bowl of water for my pup.
