Very unfriendly women informed us that this was a business and not a sightseeing tour.There was one couple dining. I understand why. She said we could either have a drink or pay $3 each. I have never been in any establishment,where you could'nt look around.Even our local driver was appalled and embaressed. I expect it will soon close. Don't bother... More

Advertised as the most elegant experience in Everglades City, we found this old dame to be a little down on her luck and in need of some upgrades. Her location is perfect though. The porches along the Baron River, of course, are just take-your-breath-away beautiful and good place to catch a lunch. The food is average at best though. And... More

We arrived in Everglades City without reservations. We found hotels with higher Tripadvisor ratings already booked. The Rod and Gun had vacancies, so we took our chances. The exterior and the lobby were intriguing but the overall experience proved disappointing. There was no reception at check-in, we had to come back later. The hotel does not accept credit cars, so...

We arrived in Everglades City without a hotel reservation, started calling around for a room for the night. This lodge told us they were totally booked....but that if a couple of reservations had not arrived by 6 pm that they'd have rooms to rent....so we checked other places to no avail so I entered this lodge at 6 pm, and...

Background first - Vacationing in Naples, Florida. We stoped here for lunch in the screened-in veranda with another couple. We did not stay here overnight. Food ok, I'd give it a average - good rating. Service just ok. Just a view of a boating canal so no special view in my opinion. The problem is this place is highly overpriced,... More

The Rod and Gun, from the outside, has everything going for it. The interior is quite wonderful; probably the best we have seen in our 54 nights on the road. The chap at Reception was very helpful ...... but there it ends. The cabin rooms are ‘motel’-style but with no coffee/tea/hot water facility. The walls are thin and you can... More

The Rod & Gun is one of the older places in FL that has incredible history - Heminway, Roosevelt, lots of people who understand nature and want to share it right in the middle of Everglades City. The rooms in the cottages are very clean, nice. The main hotel has the feel of yesteryear. The price of dinner was a... More

I spent a couple of enjoyable nights here this past January, so I believed it possible that my wife and another couple might enjoy lunch in the restaurant. However, leaving our wives in the car, I took my friend inside to show him the public areas of the club, and when we passed through the porch dining area, we were... More

Glorious antique place with old world charm, friendly folks and a relaxing atmosphere. Felt as if we'd stepped back in time. Highly recommend it. We'll definitely go back if we're in this part of the country again.
