Completely unexpected experience for a "Forest" restaurant! I had the Fish Alaska, a filet of fish with shrimp and crab piled on top, in a hollandaise sauce, over a bed of seasoned rice. It was delicious! One of the freshest pieces of fish that I have had in a long time. For dessert, the Key Lime pie is wonderful, creamy and tart. The wait staff is friendly and very quick. My companion had the Coconut Shrimp, very crunchy and well seasoned, not greasy, and a delicious fruit salsa for dipping (mango and pineapple, maybe?) Will definitely visit here again!!!

Great find on a Sunday to have a cold draft, a reasonably priced lunch, and catch some football!. The service was friendly and fast. There is outdoor seating, a volleyball net up, guess if you wanna burn some calories after eating.... But, anyway, worth the stop for sure! Enjoy!

Weate there last week and the food was great. I had the fish fingers with waffle fries and salad, y husband had the BBQ ribs and the meat just fell of the bone,the BBQ sauce was very tasty, my sister-in-law also had the fish finders and my brother had the grilled chicken. All was excellent. Ordered the peanut butter pie yummy. Everyone was so friendly and nice. Kept tabs on us to make sure we had everything that we needed. Not only our waitress but the others kept stopping by chit chat. Went outside to see what that was like and ended up in a conversation with on other couple. Enjoyed it so much we are bringing another couple back next weekend.

Try the gator tail blackened, its the best! The food and service is awesome here but what really outshines all else is the atmosphere. They have horse shoes, volleyball, games, and other activities. The outdoor seating is also awesome! Cell phones beware, there is very limited service in this neck of the woods.
