Off the beaten path but food and service good. Had blackened grouper sandwich while wife had island chicken sandwich. Unfortunately was a rainy day otherwise setting would have been nice! Good service.

The food is absolutely amazing and not something you find just anywhere. It's a mom and pop's owned restaurant and bar, so if it's crowded, you may have to wait a bit longer for your food - but it is well worth it!

Callaloo is a unique place. One the one side, you have the unimpeded view of Alligator Creek as Callaloo is right on the water with docking for boaters to pull up and have a nice dinner. On the other side, not visible from the dining...More

Overpriced and unfriendly wait staff. The view is nice, but the stationary windows should be replaced by sliders. An outside patio should be set up. I think the owner wants to sell it and it shows.

We decided to try this restaurant for a snack to see if we'd like to bring a friend back for a dinner. While the restaurant itself is nice and certainly clean with great seating by the river, I don't think we'll go back right away....More

Nothing negative to say. Very clean, nicely decorated atmosphere, and on the water. Service was wonderful and the food is out of this world. It's a little hard to find but it is well worth the journey. We will definitely visit again soon.

My husband and I ate dinner here tonight. If you like Caribbean cuisine, this is a good choice. My husband can't eat spicy food, so he ordered fried shrimp. He wasn't a fan if the breading used. I ordered curry chicken and fried plantains, and...More
