I stopped here with Chris R. and several other Yelpers/friends for dinner after we went to the Yelp event in Titusville yesterday. The restaurant is very rustic and, for lack of a better description, "old-school" Florida in style. It looked like a place that probably has been open for at least 30 years. I wasn't exactly expecting a world-class meal here - and no one should, really - but the food was good. I kept things simple and ordered a basket of fried clams. These are a childhood favorite of mine and I couldn't remember having any of these for at least the past 5 years, so that was all I wanted. The fried clams here are tasty, but nothing really separates them from any I've had before. The serving size was about what I was expecting. I also had sides of hush puppies and French fries, both of which were decent. Our shared appetizer of blackened (and perhaps Cajun?) gator was tasty, and I really liked the sauce that accompanied it. Our server was good and was able to answer any of the questions we had. I was a little surprised that she didn't bring any tartar sauce with my fried clams, though. It was strange to me that she forgot it or that I would have had to ask for it. (I didn't, even though I should have. I ate them as is, without any sauce.) Chris' wife, Ann, asked for tartar sauce with her meal, and I should have done the same. First time in my life I ever had fried clams, or any fried seafood, without tartar sauce ... I think. Perhaps the server simply forgot to include it in the basket, but it's strange that it wasn't there. Oh, well. Check this place out if you're in the area and are in the mood for some local seafood and are comfortable hanging out in a dive-y restaurant. The atmosphere here is slightly unusual, albeit oddly charming/entertaining. I don't go out this way very much so I'm not sure if I'll ever return, but anything's possible.
Parking lot FILLED with trucks, boat trailers, and Harley's. Smoke-filled bar on a Sunday afternoon. Old white guys on stage, jamming blues and rock. Eagles soaring outside, catching their dinner. Redneck in an airboat roars past on the river. Women in tight jeans. Kids outside in the play-yard. Fried fish and gator -- the waitress sends us an inquiring "thumbs up?" She has no idea....
This place is fun to go check out the food is always good and the view of the St. Johns River is pretty , they have a dock to park your boat and enjoy the surroundings also take a airboat ride plenty of parking and Sundays they have a great band that plays great music
