A dozen or so picnic tables on the dock outside the fresh seafood market afford guests the best catches and views. Some of the tables at deck's edge have seating only on one side for the optimal overlook of the river and its working waterfront. There's also upstairs air-conditioned seating (no handicap access) with table service for breakfast. In season (November through mid-May), it's open for dinner, too. The rest of the year the restaurant and cafe close at 6 p.m. For lunch, you must place your order in the fish market. Order up generous servings of soft-shelled crab, cracked conch sandwich, soft shell crab sandwich , oyster po' boy, pulled pork sandwich (for landlubbers) or baskets of cracked conch, clam strips, frog legs or fried 'gator.
- Best for Seafood Because: Its seafood market right on Everglades City's working waterfront attests to its commitment to freshness.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Located on the Barron River, it is at the heart of Everglades City's working waterfront.
- Best for Take Out Because: Part seafood market, it packages raw and prepared fish and shellfish for take out.
- Recommended as Best Value Because: It sits right on the commercial docks, meaning its seafood travels the shortest distance and is as inexpensive as it is fresh.
