Have by driven here several years. Decided to stop and eat for a date night, tried to be adventurous and try something new. Met my expectations, reasonably priced friendly fast service. Food tasted great, tried for the first time frog legs and gator bites. All tasted good and beer to go along with it. Waiter was helpful with suggestions, I... More

It's exactly what the name says and what I was hoping for. Great service and good food. We had peel and eat shrimp, chicken wings and swamp cabbage. Will definitely be stopping there every time we are in the area.

I'm not going to say the food is exceptional or the service great here. It's mostly fried fare that you would get at many so-called fish camps. But this really is a fish camp in that dozens of boaters show up along with bikers on the weekend, and people bring in and clean fish outside. There is live music on... More

The decor is straight out of a novel with a pretty good view. The restaurant is on the bank of the St. Johns. I had fried catfish.

This little converted fish camp sits on the banks of the St. Johns River north of State Road 46. Motorists whiz by on the highway and don't know what that building is they see out the window. They need to stop in and try it. Good service, good food, fantastic view of the St. Johns River. Friendly staff and regular... More

Jolly Gator has the best Gator Tail hands down! My family devours it every time we go. The view is breath taking. There is so much nature to take in while enjoying your meal. The kids love to watch the air boats come and go. They even have a small playground out back for the little ones.
