What a pleasant place to have a bite to eat. 1st the people working are so nice and friendly. I felt very welcome. It has an old Florida feel. It sits along the river where people kayak, canoe and boat tours take place. The food was delicious. I had pulled pork, pulled chicken, collards and coleslaw which was all good. My partner had Salmon with baked beans and asparagus. she said everything was great.
Fun spot to get a bite to eat, enjoy a cold beer and listen to a live band. Glorious way to spend an afternoon. The salad was huge and pulled pork sandwich was melt in your mouth tender. The pork is smoky and perfectly seasoned. And, oh my goodness, the homemade chips are not to be missed. Had the best Saturday just sitting around this super comfortable low key Florida location. Down a bumpy gravel road but so worth the trip!
Awesome restaurant right on the myakka. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Beware of the gators. Definitely would go back again before they demolish the building next year.
