Description: We are located on the Barron River, beautiful water side dinning. We pride ourselves in offering our customers fresh local seafood. Our menu has a variety of things to choose from, several vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options as we'll as real angus beef burgers and delicious Ribeye stakes. Our salads are made with organic herbs that we pick daily to provide the freshest bursts of flavor possible. Our ordering method is a little different than a conventional restaurant, you order at the counter and we bring you the food when it is ready. We tend to get extremely busy in season and on some occasions the wait for your food to be delivered can be 25 to 50 minutes. We have entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights for our customers to relax and enjoy the eclectic environment. Our motto Is not turning tables, we want to provide our customers with a nice, relaxing pleasurable visit wether it's sitting on our sofas in our outdoor lounge playing backgammon or soaking up the sun on the dock. Hope everyone can stop by and enjoy some amazing food overlooking the Barron river l!!! See y'all soon!!

“A sleeper!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Who would have ever thought to find such a delightful restaurant in Everglades City. We thought we'd take a chance on someplace different when this restaurant kept popping up on our searches. It's a great honey feeling, grab a menu from the basket, seat yourself and order at the counter. To start the beer was ice cold, which was wonderful on such a warm afternoon. It was fun sitting on the unimpressive deck watching the airboats go by. But, the real surprise came when our food was served. My grilled grouper sandwich was lightly breaded and lightly basted with an orange citrus sauce. Topped with a nice slice of tomato, lettuce on a great pretzel bun. The sweet potato fries weren't just the skinny ones you get in most places, but big wedges and cooked to a the. My husbands crab cake sandwich was probably the best he's ever tasted and the hush puppies were to die for! Don't miss this little sleeper of a place if you're ever down this way!

“Delightfully delicious!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Stopped in during a visit to Everglades City and it became a highlight of the entire trip. You MUST try the key lime milkshake. They literally blend up a piece of pie into this amazing drink/dessert! I must also mention that they had one of the best vegetarian options that we encountered at any of the restaurants we ate at during our trip (according to my vegetarian friend)! The food came in nice, large portions and was perfectly prepared. I cannot say enough about the quality of the food and the charm of this location!

“Best burger of this trip”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Went there for the fish ended up eating a burger ... What a burger. The meat was cooked as requested and everything was delicious! A couple of days before we went to a five stars meat restaurant in Miami and it wasn't good as this one.
It also have a great view on the canal .. And if you are a good friend of Mosquitos you could consider eating outside.

“Great Spot!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food in town, good service and waterside atmosphere. We had a catfish special and crab cake sandwich , highly recommended. Only improvement would be a few FL microbrews available. Will be back every trip! Also loved the Willie Nelson soundtrack to the place.
