“Fancy Restaurant out in the Woods”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

If you did not know this restaurant was there, it is a wonderful surprise. Out in the middle of nowhere is this linen tablecloth, fancy food place. The seafood we had was excellent. It is located on the bank of a river. Nice walk around to see nature. Also, that day there were several boats there, some you could take trips on.

“Third time is the charm:(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Over my last three visits to the restaurant I had the Gator Steaks dinner.The decline in the quality and portion size along with the two dollar increase in price will insure that I dont return. The service was not good at all, when i told the waitress that the Gator was over cooked and tough all she had to say was "sorry" Too bad:(

“Great seafood! Also New England clam chowder, Grouper, Steak, etc.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We had guests visiting, and went to Stumpknockers. They were from Maryland, and loved the casual restaurant on the river. Our server was friendly and very competent. We all enjoyed our meals. I had the scallops, shrimp,and mussels Scampi, with Snow crab, served over angel hair pasta, with a fabulous sauce! I can't wait to go back! Definitely worth a visit!

“Very good Seafood! Fresh and Tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Two locations: one on the Withlacoochee River north of Hernando and the other one in downtown Inverness. the one on the river is only open for dinner.... scenic surroundings in addition to good fresh seafood! The location in Inverness is open for lunch and has excellent daily specials!

“Lookin' for Fish, Southern style?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

If catfish is your thing don't pass up this one. This is what you will use a benchmark when thinking about catfish. Their catfish is Friday to perfection, with just a light breaking. The menu is a lot more extensive, everything looked great. Don't overlook the clam chowder. Service is great and you will be pleasantly surprised with your tab.
