A great little place on the St. Johns river. The atmosphere is one that was common 30 years ago, now not so much. Great food, The Gator bites are fabulous! Friendly staff, Terrific views, overall a wonderful experience. I would recommend this place anytime.

Went with friends and enjoyed the view. We sat on the covered porch overlooking the river. Service was good. Food was good. But, go for the view. This is old Florida at its best.

Riding up to Shady Oak reminds you of old time Florida. The location on the St. John River and rustic decor makes you think you've gone back in time a few decades. This was the first time we've been there, and we went with a group of fellow Can-am Spyder riders.

The food was quite good, and the servers and staff were very friendly. We'll be going back again!

This is a quaint place on the St. Johns River. I have been there several times and everyone is so friendly. The food and service are great along with the atmosphere.

For a trip into the charm of Old Florida then the Shady Oak Restaurant is a must visit location.
Located directly on the St Johns River west DeLand just before the bridge on Hwy 44 west.
Beer and wine is served and a nice variety of food items available. Seafood to burgers all is tasty.
Monday - Friday daily lunch special. Good eats at a great price.
