Fodor's Review

The pick of the lake, this lodge-style restaurant at the Okee-Tantie campground started as a fish place with four tables in a corner. Nowadays, the taxidermy-filled joint welcomes bikers and tourist for fresh catfish (the signature dish) and "cooter" (a variety of freshwater turtle). The restaurant also serves frog legs, alligator tenderloin, and oysters on the half-shell, along with a selection of ocean fish like mahi and snapper. Not feeling like fruits of the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee? There's steak and other land-spun delights. They'll cook your catch, too. The restaurant may relocate in late 2015, so keep an eye on its Facebook page.
