We went here for an appetizer and beer. Nice beer selection considering the remote location and great fried gator. Good service too.

We spent the day around Everglades City exploring. This restaurant was recommended to us. I ordered red fish. My hubby had chicken salad. All of their meals come with a hush puppy. Those were the best hush puppies I've ever had. Just order a plate! The fries were excellent too, very crisp and tasty. We liked the surroundings and the... More

We liked the ambiance of this restaurant for dinner. Prices were decent, food was very good and staff was a bit slow, but that is likely based on the fact that were are "city folks" and so we are typically accustomed to everything moving faster than it does in the Everglades. Salads were fresh, baked taters were cooked just right,... More

The description on the website said lunch with a gator bite appetizer was included in the price of their tour. This is the restaurant where we had lunch. The gator bite app was 4 nickel sized " bites" served in a condiment dish. Seriously?Everyone at our table had to laugh in disbelief.

On the positive side, this restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff are very friendly. The sautéed fish in our tacos was fresh and tasty. And the burgers and sandwiches looked good. On the negative side, our gluten-free requests were treated lightly and pretty much ignored. I declared that we needed GF the moment we walked in the door.... More

This place was a surprising find in Everglades City. It definitely has an old Southern or Western lodge style restaurant feel and look with plenty of stuffed animals and mounted fish on the wall and the place is quite casual. What was impressive was the variety of dishes on the menu. Since Everglades City is the Stone Crab Capital of... More

We came here on our anniversary. It's the stone crab capital of the world and it was really good. My husband got alligator and he liked it. I would definitely suggest stopping here for a bite.

If you are in southwest Florida and going to Everglades City or other places nearby, this is the place to eat! Family run for decades, and recently one son went to the top culinary school in rhode island and created a new menu....we spoke with him....it's what you want and more...we had steamed shrimp and gator bites appetizers and grilled...

Enjoyable late lunch at a nice quiet clean, and friendly spot. I had the Crab Claws with drawn butter, two had Lobster tails, and 1 had the Grouper. All were very good.
