This is the real thing, and the food is very fresh and tasty. But oh my word, those French fries. I've never had such great fries in my life. They are worth the trip! And the swamp cabbage is excellent, too.

Great grilled grouper sandwich and Mahi tacos. Depends what time you go and if the mosquitos are running, yet it's worth the stop. There's a screened area as well as inside seating. View is good too. They make their own chips and they're really well...More

Six of us stopped here after our flight from Indiana. The Swamp Cabbage stew is awesome. Tender and tasty. My friend had the alligator poor boy. It too was excellent . Nachos, buffalo shrimp, fries, slaw, and poppers were really good.

Seemed like everyone in our group was please with the food, nothing extraordinary, but decent for the price. We were there pretty late and just passing through so we didn't get to see much of the grounds. The parking lot... More
