My wife and I had lunch here and decided on having the Suwannee style hamburgers. The burgers were one of the best we have had. The meat to bun ratio were about a 1 to 1 ratio, a perfect medium/medium rare, and very juicy and...More

Traveling thru at lunchtime and saw this attractive outdoor themed Resturant. The clam chowder soup was loaded with clams and hubby loved his margarita pizza. Very nice decor, knowledgeable wait staff and clean appearance made for a great meal.

Loved the food and service. The clam chowder is the best this side of Bar Harbor, I had a bison burger and it was outstanding and the fries are some of the best!

Yes they are. They even give them a bowl of water. Restaurant suggested making a reservation to guarantee a table so you don't have to wait too long. Enjoy your visit and take a picture for Trip Advisor. Sue S.
