Fodor's Review

The pick of the lake, this lodge-style restaurant started at the Okee-Tantie campground as a fish place with four tables in a corner. It moved in 2016 to downtown Okeechobee (note the new address). It still is the taxidermy-filled joint as before, beckoning bikers and tourists for fresh catfish (the signature dish) and "cooter" (a variety of freshwater turtle). The restaurant also serves frogs' legs, alligator tenderloin, and oysters on the half shell, along with a selection of ocean fish like mahimahi 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.
