Located on river nice grounds and camping. Menu is fish and alligators. Service caring and good food is average. Grouper was inedible, under cooked and rubber. Go to Bistro instead.

Service was excellent. Great food and atmosphere. Enjoyed watching boats come and go and listening to the live music while enjoying a fantastic afternoon. Can't wait to come back.

My husband and I had rented a pontoon boat at the marina and came back and had dinner at the restaurant afterwards. I ordered the seafood trio of fish, gator tail and shrimp cooked anyway you wanted.

I ordered the Riverfront Trio, gator, shrimp and... More

This is a nice little Tiki Bar right on the St. John's River. The menu was quite varied with a lot of fish entries. We had the grouper Reuben and fried grouper, along with the pork rind appetizers. Delicious.
