They are famous for their all you can eat catfish but the normal menu dinner is plenty for a hearty appetite , served with corn on the cob , hush puppies and fries it IS a meal. They also have tremendous seafood platter with shrimp oysters fish and scallops and if you can eat it all you must be a giant. Great variety of other items if seafood is not your passion , chicken chops steak. this location is an adventure with the eclectic décor including real alligator skins as a reminder they serve alligator bites a novelty location with interesting items hung about and with great food and service

Went with friends. They ask for reservations but will seat without them. Food was good and reasonable. Good portions. I had the seafood platter. White fish filet, shrimp, scallops, hushpuppies and a crab cake. The crab cake had little crab flavor but the rest was very good.

Stumpknockers has been a long-standing locally owned restaurant with a reputation of serving great home cooked Florida style meals. I ordered a crab cake dinner with a sweet potato and green beans. I also started with a cup of clam chowder. The chowder was very good. I've had better crab cakes, but they were decent and had a nice flavor and a decent amount of crab. The service was very good as well. I sat outside under the canopy with the local cats! It was climate controlled with fans and heaters, which we did not need that evening. I don't remember having to fight any bugs either. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience.

We met with some family friends for Birthday supper. We eat at Stumpknockers 2-3 times a year and there were no complaints food wise from anyone. The gator tail, catfish, shrimp, and steaks were enjoyed by all. The reason for 4 stars was service. It was just a tad off and she let our drinks go empty a couple of times. But we’ll be back again soon.
