“What a dump... don't go there!”
Review of Susie's Station - CLOSED

Susie's Station
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We arrived in Everglades City around lunch time and were hungry so stopped here for a quick bite to eat.... what a mistake! They had run out of most drinks only coke was available, we had to sit outside, the restroom was out of order and we later found out it had been that way for some weeks. We recieved no check for our meal and we are not sure if the 15% advertised discount had been applied. Didn't bother asking as we just wanted to leave. The burgers were ok but that's the best we could say.

No decent lunch, no credit card payment, no change, no bathroom, waiting for a plumber?
Do not go there!

We had just purchased a home in Everglades City. While patronizing many establishments that were fine (Island Cafe, Seafood Depot, Camelia Street, Oyster House), this "restaurant" was quite terrible. We arrived at noontime and they quickly set up a table as none were set up at the time. We ordered 3 grouper sandwiches, 2 beers, a coke, and an order of fries. The grouper sandwich wasn't anything special and were quite pricey ($12.95 for a sandwich, small bag of Lays, and a pickle that tasted oddly like Mt. Olive). This brought our total to $64. Upon trying to pay with a credit card, we were informed that the "bank closed" and that they were not able to accept credit cards anymore and that we would have to go to an ATM at the Marathon down the road. We were never handed our bill and were told that the gratuity and supposed 15% off for lunch were added in. The 15% off was a lie and the adding of a gratuity for a party of 3 was ridiculous. We left Susie's feeling quite distraught that such a place is in business in a great little town like Everglades City. We will never be going back and recommend that nobody else give these people their business. There are much better dining options.

Unfortunately ate lunch here on April12th. No improvements at this establishment.
- Amazing how the bathroom still wasn't working. We were told we could use a local service station restroom a few blocks away.
- Very small servings of food for the inflated prices
- Asked for water and were charged for bottles of water
- Glad I travel with cash. When I attempted to pay with Visa the waitress informed me that the menu stipulated No credit cards
-Had to ask for cutlery and tartar sauce
-Was not offered an option to eat inside.
I truly don't know how a place like this continues to remain open........the ongoing restroom problem should be enough to close it down.

2 couples from England touring Florida together made the mistake of stopping here for Lunch.
The warning signs were all there but we missed them....
Cant come inside aircon broke......
Cant use restroom, broke, plumber called.
$66 for 3 coffees, 1 can coke, 2 burgers, an inedible"BBQ" sandwich, and a miniscule portion of crocodile tail all on polystyrene plates and plastic forks.
Thought about consequences of actually eating the food but did so, and thankfully we did not catch an infection.
Rude waitress, Scary "owner"?
Dont do it.... drive away.
