Being a local, I go to the Shady Oak TAVERN quite often. I've eaten the catfish, frog legs, gator tail and burgers and the food is always excellent! The beer is cold, the view of the river very pleasant and there is seating indoors and outdoors right on the water. And very reasonably priced.

We had a lunch here after our 8.5 mile hike. Beautiful scenery right on the St Johns river down from the Seminole State Forest. We tried the Ponga (other fish) and catfish and of course a couple of brewskis. Ponga was EXCELLENT! I highly recommend you get this over the catfish. The breading is different and i think that made all the difference.

Just left Shady Oaks What a view. Food and service were not great. Fish was good. French Fries were the CHEAP frozen ones lots of little pieces. Sides were just OK Go somewhere else on St Johns river. Ex Swamp House Grill, Outback Crab Shack are very good.

Great service, good, reasonable food. Generous wine portions and reasonable prices. Ate there twice, once by land and once by water. Very consistent.
