We ordered the alligator and frog leg dinners ended up spending $92 for four people. The alligator was just okay, the frog legs were awful, tasted like water. Found out later they were farm-raised little to no flavor quality of the few food was frozen. .. no flavor to this food at all the only thing that was good was... More

The restaurant was rustic and offered alligator and frog legs as specialties. Waitress was friendly. Two of us ordered cheeseburgers and the meat was literally burned to a crisp. Our friends said that the fried frog legs weren't good either. Bathroom was totally nasty with non-flushing toilets, poorly maintained, and smelly.

And the restroom outside had a stench worse than any outhouse I have experienced. Do not recommend to eat here under any circumstances.

Tiny, roadside greasy spoon. Food is pretty good and has some weird stuff like alligator and from legs. Also has the basic burgers, sandwiches, and ice cold beer.

Ordered the gator and frog leg combo. The food was dripping in grease, the frog legs taste like fish (which I found very strange), and the gator bites were so overcooked they were impossible to chew. The fries were the only edible thing. ALSO, make sure if you visit this place... use the restroom well before you arrive. The facilities... More

This air boat ride goes along the "River of Grass" which is the Everglades. Our driver made the ride fun and informative. It was a slow day to see alligators but we did see one and a good number of Florida birds along the way. After the ride they have a show and viewing area with more animals. A fun... More

Having enjoyed an airboat ride we had lunch at Coopertown prior to pushing on. We shared an Alligator and Frogs Legs Dinner . The Gattor was very nice, chicken tasting but a lot more chewy. The frogs legs were far less of a hit, being very watery and bland tasting. Missable to be frank. The restaurant was basic and clean... More
