Question # 1 have you been to Cherry Pockets??? Most snowbirds and tourists get that question, Cherry Pockets is legendary in Central Florida! Went there on a Sunday as they have live entertainment in the afternoons, also on Saturdays and as all good places stayed longer than anticipated, great fun and seafood. Better get there early on the weekend I... More

Had the catfish new Orleans blackened. WOW! That was amazing. Made my eyes water and nose run but not too spicy to eat. Flavor terrific and the portion of catfish huge. Add their special cherry salad dressing to the fresh salad and you have a dinner to remember. Add the ambiance and you have a special restaurant "down on the... More

This is a slice of Old Florida. Don't expect anything fancy here. The food is average but plentiful. The decor is very rustic. Service was fairly fast even though the day we went they were short on servers. They seemed to manage the crowd.

We were told not to miss out on the Cherry Pocket when we were in Winter Haven. Our friends described this place to a tee. It was hard to believe the description we were given but we were also told the food and experience would be worth it. After months of waiting, we all arrived to this very remote trailer... More

We have heard about this restaurant form many people, decided to check it out. It's in the middle of a fish camp, we thought for sure we were in the wrong place. Atmosphere interesting to say the least however, food great, service good & prices reasonable. Off the beaten path so trust your GPS.

Whether you arrive at Cherry Pocket by car or by boat you immediately know this is not going to be a conventional dining experience. The ambiance is like something out of a rural 1950's Florida fish camp. The surprise comes with the fact that the food is very good and the beverage service is friendly and dependable. An outside lakefront... More

The food was phenomenal! The place is a dive, but don't let that keep you from eating there. Had a half bucket of oysters and the grouper. Just amazing food!

If you love oysters.....this is the place to go!!!! The raw oysters are shucked in front of you at the oyster bar while you chat with the bartender/shucker and the other patrons. It you want you can get them steamed in garlic butter sauce! Yummy!! A very popular place for locals, so if you can't wait for your food a... More

My daughter said......"dad are we really going in there?" It is a fish camp, with low prices and the best food around. If you are ever in the area again, you'll go back!
