“Cool little place”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

Cool little place on the River. You definitely need a boat if you stay here though. Seafood a bit pricey for what you get.

“Expected better”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Waited 30 minutes after seating, went to find out what the delay was and server didn't know she had been assigned our table. After finally getting service it was good service. However, the food was just average. Had the special surf and turf. The shrimp were tasty bust the steak was tough even though cooked med rare. The corn was overlooked as were the veggies. The Caesar salad was good as were our specialty drinks. All in all an average night for $100.00 two adults and two kids so a bit pricey as well.

“Hands on food that tastes great... Fresh water crab”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Bring from boston I am used to eating with my hands, meaning lobster. Here in homosassa I did it again but with a platter of fresh water crabs. I was in heaven. Our waitress Laura was great and we had a river view seat. Best of all, it was after 3pm and we drank Coors for $1 a glass. These crabs are caught in this river. What could be fresher. And they tasted incredible. What a meal to have after snorkeling with manatees. I'll be back.

“Asian fish, really!”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I find it an insult that a restaurant sitting on the Gulf of Mexico with local fishermen swarming the area would offer an Asian whitefish as their catch of the day. I guess offering garbage fish like Asian Carp because it is cheap and helps their bottom line is more important than supporting local fishermen and promote Florida pride.
Overpriced to boot!

“Cookout fun”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

The resort catered a cookout bbq for our group one night, it was great! They were very accommodating as always. Burgers were juicy hot and fresh. The staff was sweet as could be, with our group it can be hard to keep a
smile dealing with but they did. I felt so upset for them at the end of the heard of us eating this woman who chewed out the people who worked our party, one of the bar flys said she was a owner and that was normal. I gave the staff and extra tip after the woman was done because anyone who could give service like did having to deal with that deserved a tip! Over all great people great food and drinks
