Boondocks is very fun. Very nice mini gulf corse. Food was delicious. I enjoy the spinach salad with fresh blue berries & yummy hamburgers. Fun local music while we were there. Great gift store with wide selection of interesting gift items.

Food & atmosphere were great but they are now closed. We loved the Tuesday night Jazz band that has now switched to Smitty McMusselman's just up the street & across the bridge.

This was a pleasant surprise. There was a band that was really enjoyable. We didn't eat, but the menu looked good. We sat at the bar and service was very slow. Mostly had to flag someone down to get service.

Brought family for a casual lunch, and once again were very pleased. The burgers and tilapia dinners were enjoyed by all. The tanglers were once again a real hit. A consistent solid option for a great dining experience in the area.

We eat here 1 to 2 times a month, and have never been disappointed. Great food and friendly servers. Well made burgers, but also a great tilapia sandwich. Definitely don't miss the onion rings, either by themselves or on a burger. Even if you're not...More

Very surprising how fresh the gator was. The building is a bit of a dive but look past that because the food is great and large servings. Ask about the specials they are amazing

We ordered shrimp jambalaya, a flatbread pizza and a Cajun burger and beers of course. The food was great and the waitress was attentive. The décor is Cajun/Mardi Gras, and there appears to be a stage in the corner for live music (weekends?). Give it...More
