Terrible fire has closed the restaurant but owners say it is temporary. Owners: please let Trip Advisor know.

Ordinarily a reliably relaxing and casual place right on the St. Johns River to kill an hour or so with a sandwich, some fries and a beer, a late-night fire in mid-January has temporarily compromised that hospitality; however, the owners promise to reopen 'soon.' Keep checking in from time to time! :-)

Stopped by here after Highland Park Fish Camp recommended us to try it. It is an easy stop if youre on the boat and a neat little place that has seemed to be there a long time. Good hamburgers and catfish sandwiches.

We had stopped in for drinks while on vacation. No greeting or we will be with you shortly. Locals and ignorant staff. It would be great to step it up to make some vacation loving people feel welcome and add some good food to the menu. Been a long time, MIGHT give it another chance.

Love stopping by this little slice of old Florida for lunch. It is a hot spot for boaters, bikers and people just wanting to sit by the river and watch the water flow north. The ambiance is rough around the edges by the food is stellar. The place could use a touch of cleaning but it adds to the charm.... More

A treasure located midway between St. Augustine and Orlando. The perfect place for bfast, lunch, or dinner before or after Blue Water Heron Tour or Kayaking with the Manatee. Gator bites, Hush Puppies, Frogs Legs, and Crab Cakes. Who could want more. Though obviously from out of state, you are greeted as a regular and accepted by locals.
