    This place is fantastic! The atmosphere this place has to offer is like no other I have ever been a part of. Its a fun, energetic and has a "homey" feeling to it. The linger lodge is a destination!

    Great ambiance and good food. I've been going here since I was a little kid and the Braden River sampler never disappoints....hope u like frog legs!

    Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Order the Bayou-spiced alligator with rattler venom sauce or grilled Braden River frog legs. Wash it down with a pitcher of Bud. Read more

    Very good fish camp food! Grouper is great and when Red Fish is in season you gotta try. Alligator is fresh!

    Everything is so good, especially the gator. Buy anything gator, and you'll love it. They also have very friendly staff.

    The beers are cold. They serve a local Bradenton brewery. The staff is great. I have never eaten here but the food looks good.

    Neat place with good food. Service goes to hell when they get the least bit busy, though. We've had to get up and leave more than once as a result.

    Taxidermy bar and RV campground wasn't an option...this is Sarasota's best kept secret. One of the weirdest places in the world!!!

    Very fresh fish and wacky atmosphere--sit inside if you can! Don't get the fries though, they were just nuked in a microwave

    Try the fried green tomatoes and then a blackened grouper sandwich. Best enjoyed mid-kayak trip!

    The gator is great but ask for the sautéed squirrel butt.

    Gator basket's interesting. Little bite of chewy meat. Venom sauce leaves much to be desired. Pepped it up with tabasco.
