When I originally went to this restaurant it was in a beautiful Victorian home. The food was delicious southern fare, oven fried chicken, collards, cornbread, etc and sweet tea!

Delicious.

I understand they moved down the street but I imagine the food is still as delicious.

Bobby Putnam says:

Located in Fellsmere near Blue Cypress and between the old citrus lands on Indian River.

You will find The best in true old florida cracker cooking. From grits and steak to frog legs and swamp cabbage. With weekly bluegrass jams and walls and tables are covered in local history and nostalgia.

This feel good places reminds of calmer times and full bellies. Cant be beat.

Mari Parsons says:

This restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

They serve the Critter Platter which includes frog legs and alligator tail. They also serve swamp cabbage soup, another Florida delicacy.

I prefer swamp cabbage to be thicker, not like their soup, but it's rare to even see it on a menu.

If you're lucky you'll be there on Bluegrass Night and hear the live band play during dinner.
