“Best fried alligator...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

I have had in a while. Very rustic and nice staff. The bar drinks were stiff and cheap. The service was great.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Really friendly "locals" bar. Great food too. Got a sampling of "gator" meat but decided on the fresh grouper, French fries & hush puppies. Absolutely delicious!! Highly recommend this little gem.

“The Kids & I Dinner in Everglades City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

Our late arrival in town on a Saturday night had us driving around looking for dinner. We arrived mid evening and luckily this place was still open. The staff was super friendly and welcoming us and my 1-1/2 yo grand daughter. I requested something quick for her as she was hungry. So her meal arrived quick and she was happy. Staff even presented her with a toy to amuse her. Our meals of chicken and sweet potato fries, hot dog and regular fries and my salad with chicken breast included hush puppies....yum. Serving size was just right so no leftovers this time. We shared chocolate lava cake for dessert. This restaurant is located off-the-beaten path but well worth the trip.

“Interesting Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

We got there for dinner at 7 pm and missed the Happy Hour which was 4-7. There's not much ambiance, but our waiter was friendly. We ordered different seafood plates. Both were nicely done and not overcooked. Each plate came with plenty of vegetables that were slightly charred and flavorful.
