“On the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Love sitting on next to the river, watching the wildlife the food and drink are very good, not all of their food is fried and that is a very good thing.

“Best oysters and always well cooked meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

I have had countless dozens of oysters agree and have never had a single oyster that wasn't plump juicy and full flavored. I don't get oysters anywhere else anymore in SWFL. The food is never over cooked and well prepared.
Nothing fancy, but very good seafood at a very reasonable price.

“Great Grouper”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This restaurant is located on the Mayaka river, a protected waterway. This used to impose some constraints on service, e.g., paper plates and plastic utensils. Nonetheless, the seafood was always great, especially the grouper. Since our last visit a few years ago the owners have managed to transition to real plates and utensils, and the seafood is still fresh and very tasty.

“GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Great food. The Naples Fish Dinner is over mashed potatoes w/ parmesan sauce served with hushpuppies. AMAZING!! The only thing none of us ever care for there is the cole slaw. Don't let that keep you from going.
