Tips from locals
Great food and service. Is located right on withlacoochee river. In and outside dining. Also offer airboat tours.
Another local favorite right on the Withlacoochee river. THE Best boiled shrimp! Fish & chips (real chips made in house!) Grouper Fish Tacos, (my favorite!!) and more!! Live music, proprietary adult beverages. Dog friendly! Great place!! Rent a boat here or take an airboat tour!
Honestly, I haven't been there in 5 years or more but I have had many guests rant and rave about it. It gets festive. The nice part is it's closeness to the lake house and the establishment is right on the Withlacoochee River.

“This is the place we rent from when we tube or kayak down the rainbow river. You can park there and they provide whatever type of kayak or paddle board you want to rent then their shuttle that takes you upstream to KP Hole to launch. It is a 4 mile route down the river and takes about 2 hours or so depending on how you paddle. You end up at Blue Run Park where they pick you up and take you back to your car. Very fun, great views and nature. As with most springs in North Central Florida the water is about 72 degrees year round. Great for a hot summer day!”

“Options to tube, canoe or kayak the entire river. Ask your host about a private kayak trip for two instead of taking a shuttle.”
