Get there early as there are not a lot of seats on top of Blackwater Inn but it is worth it! The view is spectacular and the melted seafood sandwich was a hit with us all! Have been there a couple times and enjoyed all of the food! Drinks are great too.

Went upstairs to Williams landing for appetizers. Server was rude, jalapeño poppers and mac and cheese bites were ok but just like any grocery store brand.

Have passed by this place many times when they are closed, ( they close somewhat early I'd say, about 10:00 PM I believe) and finally was in the area earlier, so we had to stop in.... Great view of the St. Johns River, relaxed place with good food and drinks... Will have to stop by again!! Close proximity to Volusia... More

Stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the good food. We ate at the bar on the deck and our service was outstanding. Our only concern, as we are non smokers, is the people were smoking around us. Definitely will go back though.

We stopped twice for lunch and had an excellent meal Mot importantly they had a spot for our rented houseboat to park while we ate a couple of meals we didn't have to prepare.

After our river cruise, we went up stairs to Williams landing. We sat outside on the deck, and felt like we were in a tree house. I had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the fish sandwich, both of which were excellent. A couple of cold brews and fine a fine and friendly staff to serve it, made for... More

This was our second stop today on our little outing. The first was St. John's River Grille in Deland. We came up here because in the afternoon, you're in the shade because it's on the west side of the water. That, and we just wanted to take a ride in the convertible. Drinks were very good. The menu looked good,... More

We had lunch at Williams on a beautiful afternoon. We sat outdoors overlooking the St. John's River, and this alone made our stop worth it. The food served was all extremely greasy, and we had the sop it up with a bunch of napkins, which kinda worked on the burger but not much help on the onion rings. Though she... More

I have visited several times and each time I have enjoyed myself. The drinks, ( especially the Manhattan made by Tina), food, and outstanding view of the Saint John's River are lovely . This will be a regular stop for me when I am staying in town.

Good place to have some quick food and drinks. Up on a platform overlooking the river. Good if the weather is good, not so good on cold, hot or rainy days. Long stairway.
