There is not anywhere else to eat in the state park and being from out of town , I didn't have anything with me to eat, so I gave this place a shot I had the conch fritters, and they were pretty good and I...More

The only merit of this place is that there are no other options around. The waiting staff could have not been more unhelpful and rude at attending us. The place clearly needs a refresh - very disappointing. I strongly recommend to bring your own food!

Located within the park, they offer a pretty decent variety of meals including Hamburgers, Fish, Pasta and some other options... We ordered Salmon Sandwich, Cheeseburger and Fish plus some beers and cokes and pay around USD 60, super cheap compared with South Beach Prices. Credit...More

A nice place for a cold beer or a cortadito but definitely don't eat there if you want a good meal especially breakfast. It's your basic diner food but certainly a good place to get a cold beer or soda and rest on a long...More

Likely the best brunch buffet I and my husband have ever encountered. At $89 a person, I admit, I was somewhat skeptical of getting ripped. That was far from the case. Endless, serve yourself mimosas, Bloody Marys, and Gin Punches says plenty. But the offerings...More

As another reviewer wrote, they would rather clean tables than serve their guests. The Florida state park should be embarrassed letting these guys try and fail to run a restaurant in this lovely park.

We sat and waited to be served. And waited. Apparently, cleaning tables was more important than greeting us and give us a menu. Finally, a very cranky lady came up and handed us menus. She did that with such a not-welcoming face, that we decided...More

So to start, we were just hoping for a quick eats type of lunch spot from being at the beach since this is right on the beach. So my review is biased since we didn’t want a full and long eating experience. If we came...More

After visiting the Lighthouse, we stopped at this cafe. I had a fish sandwich and my husband had tuna. Sandwiches were pretty good but fries were not too hot and service was a little slow. We enjoyed the seaside table and view of the lighthouse.
