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 are one-sided at deck's edge 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 other meals, 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 basket of cracked conch, clam strips, frog legs or fried 'gator.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Located on the Barron River, it is at the heart of Everglades City's working waterfront.
- Best for Seafood Because: Its seafood market right on Everglades City's working waterfront attests to its commitment to freshness.
- 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.
