We love this place! We have a special needs adult daughter and the entire staff and management always remember us and treat her with the utmost respect! Our meals are always good, the staff are friendly and offer wonderful service, and the location is perfect! It is a great family friendly, casual environment. Great food and fair prices!

Near the Myakka River both the restaruant & our seating.
All four enjoyed but two especially tasty items were the Baked Horseradish Crusted Fish Fillet and the Fish Filet Francaise were raved about (we all tried these items).
Make a stop and take in the menu and tastes.

Great early dinner. We tried Naples Fish dinner, Mussel appetizer, Fried oysters, Fried Clams (not New England style because they didn’t have bellies- not recommended if you’re expecting NE style fried clams), and shrimp. all the food was good. However, the sides of rice were barely warm. The hush puppies were very good - not greasy. The service was excellent and we had an excellent view from the from the enclosed patio. I would definitely go back.

A friend and I went recently and we both were very pleased. We went for lunch and sat out at one of the picnic tables on the shore of the river, very pleasant. We decided to go for the raw oysters as a start and man, were we pleased, fresh, bright, perfect, found out they were from Appalachicola, excellent. One of us had the special, haddock bites and the other fried scallops, both were very good. The waitress was friendly, efficient, and very helpful. Not a big menu, but plenty of good things. We'll be back.

On the river, quiet customers, good food, we had heard mixed reviews and decided to try it out for lunch. They use to just serve dinner. We plan to go back and see if the wait staff can figure out the bill correctly. The General Manager was very apologetic about the mathematical mistake.
