Lunch today and toured the area today. The ribs brisket and chicken were very tasty. Sides were excellent. Service was friendly. It scares me to think that someday the old Florida places like this will be gone. This place is a must visit.

This is old Florida charm at its best. It is defiantly off the beaten path. The menu is small and mostly fried food. Right on the river so you may get to see a gator floating around. They do have live music on certain nights...More

The restaurant is located in a county park that does not allow dogs, therefore we are not able to permit for dog friendly dining. Sorry!
