“Fun spot for Lunch Reopened”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

New management with cleaner facilties and more organized than last year. Decide whether you want inside or outside dining as you approach. There is a counter indoors at the left door to place your order and you are given a number for your picnic table outdoors for food delivery.We tried a Pick 2 Platter..2 entree choices with 2 sides. Good cole slaw and mac and cheese, as well as pulled pork with sweet sauce and sausage and peppers. If you choose to eat indoors or on back deck area by the water, you will have waitress service and they would like you to approach from the right.They were just tacking up the entertainment schedule calendar for Feb. It will be just lunches for the time being with banjoes returning Thursday 11:30 to 1 as in the past.
Small childrens menu offered.

Excellent setting very secluded. Good food and excellent service. The restaurant is overlooking Myakka River were some of the Tarzan movies were filmed.
