“What a fun surprise!”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

We decided to drive down to Everglades City from Marco Island. We stopped here for lunch because there were lots of police vehicles in front so we concluded it must be a good local place to eat. That assumption turned out to be correct. It was ample, tasty fare and not too expensive. I loved the croc guarding the door and it was fun to look at all the collectibles lining the walls. It seemed to be a stop off for people who had booked local activities. The food was pretty good. I had fish and chips and my husband had a sandwich. Service was good and we would eat there again.

“Must have breakfast”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Great choice of breakfasts and super service. We also had an evening meal here which was excellent. Largely quite simple in its choices but very good.

“Good Food, Great Service and Fun Decor”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Came highly recommended and it was a fun place to eat. Mary B was a great hostess and we enjoyed our time there. Sister had fish taco which she said was very fresh and tasty. I had BLT with bacon cooked perfectly and fresh, flavorful tomato. Large portions and they provided to go cups for our trip back home.
