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 and "cooter" (yes, sadly, it is indeed freshwater turtle). The restaurant also serves frog legs or alligator tenderloin. Not feeling like fruits of the Everglades and Lake Okeechobee? There's steak and other land-spun delights.
