A fun place. Has an outdoor fire pit, great wings, and good entertainment. The bartenders and waiters are really great.

Stopped here for the fish fry on a Friday evening. Sat inside a screened in area to stay away fro the multitude of smokers on the outer covered patio. A DJ was setting up karaoke that was to start at 6 PM. The fish fry food was pretty good, the cole slaw was adequate and fries were ok. No bread... More

We popped down here with the sister and brother in-law for a few beers and a feed, definitely a local, as I Kiwi I stood out with my NZ Bikers vest and my accent, funny enough many other places it interests people and they come and talk to me, here it is full of retirees and they are suspicious of...

We found this place while driving around. Sort of a biker bar but had a variety of people. Service was good, they kept the pitchers of cold beers coming. Good fried bar food. Awesome live music! The tunes kept us there for at least 3 hours. Interesting people, but all good fun.

This is a great restaurant in our small town, great service, great food, karaoke is fun. Leesburg needs more spots like this to catch a few beers and wings. Wings are good, be sure to order them extra crispy and they come out perfect. The owner Kevin is friendly so is his staff. Will be back soon.

Restaurant and bar, directly on the river. We ate here with a group of friends, one of whom recommended the place. The food was typical of what we expected, burgers and other pub grub--with the addition of gator, which is not regularly available in most places. The night we visited was extremely cold for Florida. They have clear plastic "curtains"... More

Cool old-school Florida cracker ambiance. We had the burgers gator bites and fish dip. Everything was tasty and the servers were very attentive. They even help this dock our boat.

Some of the best fried gator I've eaten and their homemade sauces are fantastic, especially the remoulade. They have live music on Friday and Saturday and I think all you can eat fish on Fridays. It's right on Haines Creek. Great place to sit and listen to music and drink a beer while enjoying the gator. You'll probably see a... More

I have never in my life seen such incompetence in a wait staff! they need to find better waitresses than what they have now. i can understand mistakes and new staff learning the ropes but this was ridiculous! i ordered a beer from the bar when we first arrived because we were waiting for friends and there were no seats....
