The Pub style atmosphere with quick excellent service. I love trying everything on the menu. Everything is so fresh and tasty. So far I have not been very happy with all of it with one exception. The sweet tea comes with bottled lemon juice. A fresh lemon would top off the excellence...

The food is wonderful, especially shrimp sandwich, and the fried mushrooms. Reasonably priced. I have tried other menu items and have liked everything I had so far.

Their fish special is awesome. A huge fish fillet that melts in your mouth. I am a tartar sauce lover and theirs is one of the best I've ever tasted. I take my mother there every time I visit and we always have the fish special. Always fast, friendly service.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is I have had but one thing, the wings. But I have had them about a dozen times! They are my favorite, but I love the style that they make.

We ate at the Brown Lantern and I wasn't impressed. We had to wait awhile because it was very busy. It's one of the few things in Live Oak so i'm sure it stays busy, since it's a local hangout. We were there for dinner and it took awhile to get our order because they cook everything fresh when it's... More

Great food. Everything on the menu is good. A place you'll want to return to again and again. The seafood is better than what you'll find at the beach so beware of getting SPOILED by this place.

There are not many places to eat in Live Oak on a rainy October evening. This place was packed but a table for 2 was quickly found. Due to it's popularity the service was a bit slow but when the food arrived it was absolutely delicious. All of the staff were cheerful and friendly and apologised for the delay. We... More

The person that greeted my when i walked up to the bar to place a take out order, was lacking in friendliness and basic customer service skills. i ordered grilled shrimp. When I got to my hotel room I discovered I had breaded shrimp. I usually leave a generous tip for my server. My service experience was so bad, I... More

Want a place to eat that's consistent this is the place! The food is good and the look of the place well it's funky in its own way! The chicken wings are the best around and so is the shrimp dinners. You really can't go wrong here just wished they were open on Saturdays!
