Fodor's Review

If you couldn't already tell, the Nature Coast is about as Southern as you can get. This place is a case in point. This roadhouse-style eatery is co-owned by family members of former Lynyrd Skynyrd bassist Leon Wilkeson. Legend has it that Wilkeson had long dreamed of opening a restaurant serving Southern and Cajun food like fried okra and gator tail, with live music to match. You'll hear nightly live zydeco here, and the menu offers Dixieland staples like jambalaya (a favorite here), frog legs, and catfish. It may have a roadhouse feel and plenty of musical memorabilia, but it's also smoke-free and pretty family-friendly. A word of caution: the music can get loud.
