The everglades rod and gun is like walking into a time capsule, it is an amazing building right on the river. The staff is friendly, the rates are good and the rooms are awesome, we had a 4 poster king bed, real hardwood floors and a brand new bathroom, also a mini fridge. We caught fish off the dock right... More

Spent one night here while driving across the state. Jeff at the front desk was very helpful and gave us a great room, which was very reasonable this time of year because it's off season, and Everglades City is pretty much abandoned. Rooms are very clean and have an old Florida feel. Beds were comfy, sheets and pillows were nice... More

History - loved it- very friendly and helpful staff. Family feel. On the water and a pool. Small cabin like rooms on the water with palm trees and birds chirping. Watching the sun set. Not fancy but very unique. Two beds in room for a reasonable price. The gun club is like a small museum. Great porch seating for lunch... More

We visited the Rod and Gun Club recently and were very disappointed. The place itself is an interesting look back into the past and has a very pleasant porch for dining and viewing the Barron River. When we arrived every table was uncleared and a few people dining and some people awaiting service. We semi cleared a table and sat... More

Had a delicious lunch at the Rod & Gun Club! Grouper tacos! Servers were excellent and the ambiance takes you back to the early 20th century when Presidents and fishing enthusiasts stayed there , smoked cigars and had a glass of whiskey. The tables on the screened in porch overlook a marina with Pelicans circling local fisherman at the dock.... More

What a great historical gem - great foo8d too. Tons of history dating back to 1864. Neat dining experience on the porch. A must stop when in Everglades City, or when on Route 41. Cool antique bar and lobby. Will stay overnight next time Daily fresh fish.

This is a very cool place to stay for an off the beaten path experience. It is a historic lodge which has been well preserved. We stayed in a cabin room next to the main lodge. It was like a state park cabin. The large bathroom had a great shower with all new beautiful slate tile, and a basic sink.... More
