Food is awesome and service is too, as well as the atmosphere. Located right on the bank of the St. Johns River. You can eat inside or outside and enjoy the view of the St. Johns River while you eat.

You'll have plenty of choices. Unfortunately, healthy choices are pretty limited. Most every table around us had fried food. Our shrimp cocktail was good,, and my husband enjoyed his fish n chips. However, I had the worst salmon I can recall in recent years. It...More
