Great location on the Withlacoochee River. Rustic and interesting with old time outdoor bar. Nice walk to the river and a great scenic view. The restaurant was very very busy, Almost all tables full. The menu selections are interesting and sounded a bit ambitious. We ordered their specialty Catfish and it was delicious. Some of the other entrees, not so... More

Great Location. Good drinks and great food. Best fried catfish, french fries, and hush puppies in the area.

We had reservations for our dinner and was seated promptly. I had the snapper, which was a special and not on the menu. My husband had the Louisiana gator steak. We had fried green tomatoes for an appetizer, again a special for the holiday. Everything was very tasty. Lots of food! We brought enough home for breakfast and lunch! Very... More

Went with some friends from Michigan for dinner. When waitress brought our food she said the chef wasn't sure that my rib eye was done the way I wanted and to eat this one while he cooked another. They brought another one after I finished the first one. Both were done perfect. The only bad part was I eat both... More

Used to go more than we do now, but still go at least 2-3 times a year. They are always crowded, but have started taking reservations so the wait time is not nearly as long as it used to be. Their prices are reasonable you get a good deal of food for the money. I love the AYCE catfish and... More

Local charm of a fish shack on a gator pond but the seafood and shellfish are fresh and cooked to order. Options are way beyond fried. I recommend the mussels. If you don't care for seafood, try the meatloaf. It has a beefy flavor and they serve it with a nicely crunchy crust. Good service at both the bar and... More

If you are looking for a scenic restaurant that is not fancy and has good food, though not fine dining, this is the place for you. The service was good, not fantastic but it was a very busy night and clearly the waitress was inexperienced. The food was good, though not outstanding. The prices were moderate.

Peggy and I had a late lunch at Stumpknockers on the River. I ate what I believe is my favorite meal in Central Florida, Louisiana style gator. This is a large, breaded gator steak (not nuggets) in a delicious sweet creole sauce served over rice with baked potato, hush puppies, and an ear of corn. With it I had a... More

I have been to Stumpknockers several times. It has a great atmosphere and the food is always good. I have had shrimp and prime rib and both were excellent.
