Been there, but can't understand what the attraction is due to the fact that I didn't enjoy much of what I ordered. The chowder is satisfactory. I'd stay away from the meat loaf. Even though they serve a generous portion, they could use some help...More

A fellow Floridian recommended Stumpknockers, and I’m glad he did. My husband and I like that you can eat indoors or outside. We ordered fried green tomatoes, shrimp, and stuffed flounder; everything was tasty and there was a lot of it!!

The toilet in a restaurant tells me a lot about the overall hygiene of the establishment as a whole. Nice staff members and the food was OK, but a dirty toilet is more than I can stand in a restaurant or any other place. I'll...More

This unique old building on the Withlacoochee river serves up large quantities of good local seafood. I had the snow crab legs for 19.99, they were what I expected, good (not great) large quantity served with corn, potato, cole slaw and hush puppies. My husband...More

If you try the prime rib, be ready for half of your plate being fat! The meat is tough and lacking flavor. They must use a very poor grade of beef that is not marbled or tender. Order your meat medium rare and you will...More

Some restaurants allow dogs in outdoor areas only. If the dog is a registered service animal, then it can go anywhere.
