Fodor's Review

Formerly Everglades Seafood Depot, this restaurant still offers tasty, affordable meals in a scenic setting in a storied 1928 Spanish-style stucco structure fronting Lake Placid. Seafood, steaks, burgers, and dogs are the stars here. 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). Soups, salads, wraps, and a veggie platter round out the menu. If you'd like a view, ask for a back-porch table or a lakeside window seat. Down the road, new owners plan to market adventure outings from this fabled site.
