Called in just because we were in the area. Rustic feel. I had the low-priced set lunch menu, the meatloaf, which was a huge portion, and tasty. There's ALSO A TAKE-OUT MENU. I was intrigued to see it included starters of FRIED FROGS LEGS AT...More

On our second trip to Everglades City we decided to try another local restaurant. Island Cafe had something for everyone. The chili was simple, but delicious. Great seafood choices as well as the regular small restaurant fare. My next visit will include lunch here.

Well priced and swift service at this restaurant. Felt like a very local place with a classic American decor you see on tv in such diners. I had a very safe burger and couldn't complain.

Yes, you can usually get what you would expect at this local eatery. Some of the dishes are not even remotely reminiscent of those gifted Frech Chef Denis Meurgue, who along with his American wife Lisa, operated the restaurant years before, but more of a...More
