Stopped in for dinner last night while in town. Waitress recommended their shrimp & grits - so being a huge fan of them I had to try. Was not sorry. They were blackened and served on a bed of cheddar cheese grits with a cream sauce with tomatoes, mushrooms and onions. I wasn't sure about the mushrooms but they were... More

My family and I just finished a really great lunch! Everyone got sandwiches, each of us ordered something different and everyone absolutely loved what they got! Cute place with great atmosphere and outdoor area! Service was excellent also! Highly recommend stopping if you're driving through the Ocala national forest!!

The restaurant is very rural, in or near the Ocala National Forest, but it's worth stopping by if you are in the area. The food is great and the menu has many choices, from burgers to barbecue pork to seafood. I had the Cuban mix sandwich and my companion had the grilled vegetables appetizer. We topped it off with some... More

Now let me tell you that the person I took out thought the plate cost $8.99 & I said, "No, it's $18.99"! He almost dropped his teeth! Didn't look like much on a plate with a nice fillet, a couple scallops & perhaps 5... More

Took my Grandmother here for her 99th B-Day... She had a BLAST! She loved the area out back which is a little hidden gem unnoticeable from the roadside...a relaxed Florida Keyes feel to it all. Volleyball, comfy chairs umbrellas and a cool fire pit all say "stay awhile" that gator was delish!! All the staff made her feel so important... More
