All I can say DO NOT waste your time going to this restaurant. They don't have half the food on the menu. The cocktails were awful. We ended up paying way too much for cocktails we couldn't drink and leaving. Worst experience ever.

We couldn't make it for dinner but we did manage to get a drink. We sat on the veranda (screened in) where we were able to enjoy a beautiful view of the everglades as the sun set. It is very cozy: wicker furniture, hardwood floors,...More

Give them a call at (239) 695-2101 to check current prices. Google them to see that not many are happy with their rooms, service, or prices anymore. A lot of history there and a nice location on the Baron River, but there... More
