We went there for lunch and the views are wonderful with the restaurant right on the water. Unfortunately I had ordered corn beef hash as the special only to get corn beef and cabbage with no explanation for the mix-up. Good selection of beers though

This is a real old time Florida Location. Deep in the wood and really different place, with a chance to take a river ride and see some of the old time Florida.

The music seems to be the draw, but the place is rundown and very old. Drive down a dirt road through the woods to get there. Food was poor and service slow

We had gone here with some friends who had been before. They had had a great experience. had to park a long way away and ride on a shuttle bus back. We had to stand and wait in the sun for about 20 minutes for the shuttle bus. Hot and grumpy by this time. Get back there and there was... More

We took friends that had newly moved to the area and had a fantastic meal. The shrimp Po boy was great and we highly recommend the sweet potato fries. We sat on the deck and got to really enjoy the ambiance of Old Florida!

this is always a great place to eat. During this visit we have eaten there three times. Once to hear the banjo group playing on Thursdays (get there early!) and two other times with friends. I branched out from the regular chicken BBQ and had the pulled pork tacos -- excellent. Sweet potato fries are a must as is their... More

Love the setting, right on the Myakka River. Menu is Southern style and tasty. Wait staff is fun and attentive. Really enjoyed our lunch there. The ride into Snook Haven is a long dirt road that throws up a lot of dust... be prepared.
