Waited half an hour to have someone come up say "Has anyone came to your table yet? Can I drop this off real quick?" We told him not yet and ok. He didn't come back right away like we expected and we ended up walking out. We didn't even get to order drinks. So disappointed they were not busy and servers just kept walking past.... Maybe I'll give them a shot some other time.
Been back since food was great and service was even better
We decided to eat here since it was right next door to our hotel while traveling. Passed on the fish and shrimp as they weren't local. Asked about the beef, and it not only was local, but they even hand cut the steaks as ordered. This was the first time I have EVER ordered a steak in Florida. I always go for fresh seafood. WOW! Was I surprised!!! Best steak I've had at a restaurant in years! Had the sirloin. Cooked to perfection, and the baked potato was excellent. House made dressings were good, too.
Talk about a gem in the middle of nowhere Florida . Amazing food, atmosphere, and a waitress we had both nights that was perfect. Ate Gator for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised. If your in the Lake Placid area and don't come here u for real missed out . Oh and had a live band last night we went. Just a perfect way to end a vacation... Gator baby!!!!!!
Great food. Wife had the fried shrimp. I gotta cheeseburger. Jalapeno poppers as an appetizer. All around delicious 😋
Fantastic service from Todd! Shrimp basket was large shrimp and basket was full. Fish was light flakey and fantastic. Definitely recommend and will be back again
These fine folks have moved, and their new location is in Sebring sooooooo-
It appears that I am the first person to write a Yelp review for this new location and I had a wonderful time!
Atmosphere- This building has been a bit of a revolving door of restaurants. The previous tenant completed a very expensive and extensive remodel and these folks inherited it.
This is a big place done completely in dark wood including wood floors. It's really beautiful. The bar seats about ten but there are bar tables that seat many more. The restaurant proper has two-tops, four-tops and booths. You are going to be comfortable here.
Customer Service- The hostess greeted me immediately and was very pleasant. My waitress was exceptional, and I had my drink within a couple of minutes. I had a chance to chat with her about the local restaurant/bar scene and she was delightful.
Food- The restaurant name is a bit of a misnomer. There is certainly some southern food offered but it is generally a fairly typical American menu and not particularly extensive.
There are several steaks, several burgers, and a nice selection of assorted sandwiches. There are plenty of appetizers and lots of sides. There are also a few platters.
I went with the Carolina Brisket sandwich which came with one side @ $14. I chose Cowboy Caviar as a side, and everything was out quickly.
It was an altogether amazing meal! The sandwich was on Texas Toast and was huge. My pic doesn't do it justice but there must have been close to eight ounces of tender brisket on this messy, wonderful monster!
So how messy was it Steven B? Let's just say I drove home, threw my shirt in the laundry, and jumped in the shower! I was smiling as I cleaned up.
The Cowboy Caviar was completely addictive. I don't see it offered often and I was delighted to inhale it. I see it is also available as an appetizer with tortilla chips and I'll bet that would be awesome!
There is no way around it. I had a five-star meal and experience!

I do not hand out 5 stars easily. For a new restaurant creative menu and friendly staff. That's just the start. The food is creative and way better then any ale house or steakhouse franchise. I will be going back. The double batter deep fried bacon has me in heaven on earth and the rest of everything we had from chicken tenders to the Cobb salad which was big enough for 3 people was delish. I would skip ruby Tuesday chili's and any other like Roadhouse Applebees this place hands down better service cleaner and more attentive to the customer. Love it. Will be back. I will not be going back to chucks or any others mentioned over this grill. This grill is where it's at. Prices are fantastic for the portions. I wish I could remember the waiters name but I don't and he was so cool and nice.

Had a really nice lunch on the patio. We tried gator bites that were light and crispy. the brisket sandwich was great. Kids cheeseburger 🍔 was a hit with a side of corn on the cob and chicken fingers had to do instead of PB&J my kiddo was hoping for. Cowboy 🤠 salsa is no longer on the menu updated menus are coming up.
