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!!

“Great spot and good food”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We ate at Camellia Street Grill both nights that we were in Everglades City. The first night it was because it was within walking distance of our hotel. The second night was because the food was very good. I had the rib eye sandwich which was melt in your mouth delicious. The second night I had the chicken skewers which were also very good. My husband had the grouper and then the catfish and grits. Both of which he enjoyed. Prices are very reasonable. For ambiance, it is right on the water; you can eat inside a screened in patio or outside on the deck. Both nights that we were there, they had a band playing. Overall a very enjoyable dinner experience.

“Great lunch overlooking water - old Florida vibe”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

This is a comfortable, down-home kind of spot with very casual dining and GREAT food and view. Nothing fancy, but serves up really good meals at reasonable prices, and how can you not enjoy sitting out on the porch overlooking the water watching the boats go by? Who cares if you take your own menu, order your own food at the counter, and pay on the way out??? It's part of the experience!! Best Gulf shrimp I've had and delicious sweet potato fries. Friendly folks working here, and it really felt like the Florida of old before strip malls, condos, traffic, and technology took over! Beware the hungry pelican who sits on the rail hoping to snag some food. Just added to the ambiance of this charming spot. We drove here from Naples and stopped enroute to Shark Valley, but I'd make the trip again just to eat here!

“Fabulous Oysters, laid back vibe”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The fired oysters were so good the day we came, we returned the next day and had them in another incarnation. Friendly people, but the way to order was a bit inefficient. Nice view over the water.

This place is a cute little spot on the water with a great casual atmosphere.

“On the water”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

The food was very good and the atmosphere was great! The only draw back was the lack of air conditioning, but the breeze cooled things down nicely, even at 5:30pm. Service was good and the location was excellent.
