First of all, if you haven't been to the Matlacha, Pine Island, Bookelia, St. James City area yet, all west of Cape Coral, Florida...you are missing out. This area has charm coming out of its pores! Part fishing village, part eclectic galleries, shops and restaurants, you will fall in love. But only if you are down to earth and savor... More

Went to buy fresh seafood The selection was wonderful. People were so pleasant and helpful. I thought the prices where very good.They gave us free samples. I wish I lived closer so that I could go more often.

Can't go wrong with the grouper (caught local) plater, coleslaw (with coconut) and fish dip. Rustic and by the water.

We had a wonderful lunch-whole snapper and salad with shrimp. Food is fresh, fair sized servings (I'd say generous number of shrimp on salad), efficient service. Love sitting outside watching boats move by and the woman singer was nice background. Never been disappointed here.

Stopped here for lunch with my Mother and sister and I'm really glad we did. The fish was all fresh, in fact they only serve what's being caught at the time, and perfectly cooked. We had blackened and fried and both preparations were spot on. I had the grouper and the other 2 had snapper and both were fresh, fresh,... More

I liked this place because it and the town in which it is located Matlacha, are truly Old Florida. I had the daily special, Cajun shrimp with coleslaw, hush puppy, and veggies. They gave me so many shrimp I had to take some home. The food was good, and my server was very nice. They also have a seafood market... More

We stopped here for lunch returning from Cabbage Key. I had the oyster platter which was pricey but tasty. A generous size serving. Travel companions had a cheeseburger and a Grouper sandwich. Food was acceptable but keeping in mind we were in a 'don't blink' town, I guess you could do worse.

Nice laid Back atmosphere, sever was friendly and attentive. Manager (?)came around and spoke to everyone. This is what old Florida use to be like.... More
