Great food and atmosphere, service has always been friendly and quick, food combines local favorites with tried and true plates. Outdoor only seating so weather can be an issue. Only negative is smoking is allowed, which has caused us to turn and leave on occasion.

I have never been disappointed with the wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. Whenever we are in Dunnellon this is a must go to place to share with friend and family. They have live music on Friday and Saturday Night. It is all out doors so weather permitting , the enjoy the view, music and friendly atmosphere. We had the fried fish the last time and it was very good and the fried sweet potatoes are my favorite.

This place is very rustic with a big outdoor deck, good vibe on a Friday and Saturday night. Food is basic pub food but good and well priced.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere, Gator bites were great, Fish fingers not so much. I don't want farm raised fish. How about a little mahi mahi of a nice piece of grouper. That being said my friends really enjoyed there burgers and the music was very deversified. Something for everyone.

We went here with family and werent really sure what to expect. We knew it was on the water and read the menu online before going but also knew it was outside only so concerned it would be HOT! But it wasnt at all. There are so many trees that the shade it great. They have fans and umbrellas throughout so the tempature was perfect! The food, we all ordered something different. From hamburgers to gator bites to Ceasar salad, grouper and even scallops. Everyone enjoyed their food. There wasnt anything left when we were finished. I had the scallops and loved them. They were blackened and had a great flavor. A little spicy but good. Gator bites were also yummy. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. She checked on us often and made sure our drinks were always full! We will definitely be back . . .
