Food is always good and service is excellent. For the courageous you may get to have your picture taken with a baby gator. Right on Lake Jessup and a bit off the beaten path but worth the visit.

Priced as fine dining but not. Meat fish camp atmosphere but after a long drive to get there was shocked at the prices. Won't return.

Stopped by for a beer while out exploring with my Mom. We ended up having supper. ordered the 2 ounce gator bite appetizer done 'Florida' style. They were wonderful little chunks of gator goodness, some of the best I have had. Mom got the Blackened Chicken Club Sandwich. She enjoyed the sandwich and the Cole Slaw that accompanies it. I...

Went with some friends to thank them for dog sitting. Service was good, but the food was just okay. Not bad, not good. Very average. The tiki bar is awesome but the restaurant needs a little work. Haven't been back since, it's really not worth the money we paid.

Down home secret restaurant on the river; actually Lake Jessup. It's beautiful place to watch the sunset over the lake (indirect view glows on the lake) and search for gators. The country music and down home hospitality gives a feeling of being right at home. It's not fancy, it's comfortable and friendly. There's a bar with live music out back... More

My family and I had lunch at the restaurant after taking an airboat trip. The service was excellent and had a very welcoming approach. They provided a kids activity sheet fro my youngest son. Once ordered the food arrived promptly and the portion sizes were very filling. My blackened mahi fillet sandwich and fries was excellent and very well priced.... More

We visited the hammock restaurant for a work lunch. Service was very good considering we had about 20 folks. Food was okay. It was an older rustic atmosphere if you are into that. Feeding the alligators after dinner was a hoot and a walk over looking lake Jessup was very pleasant.
