Fodor's Review

Count on tasty, affordable meals in a scenic setting at this storied 1928 Spanish-style stucco structure fronting Lake Placid. Beginning life as the original Everglades train depot, the building later was deeded to the University of Miami for marine research and appeared in the 1958 film Winds across the Everglades (starring Christopher Plummer, Peter Falk, Gypsy Rose Lee, and Burl Ives). Seafood is the only star here now, including lobster, frogs' legs, crab, and alligator. Steak, seafood, and combo entrées include salad or soup, or an extra-charge option for a salad bar with steamed shrimp. All-you-can-eat specials—fried chicken, a taco bar, or a seafood buffet—are staged on selected nights. Save room for "secret family recipe" coconut guava cake. If you'd like a view, ask for a back porch table or a lakeside window seat. The "you hook it, we cook it" is $9.99
