  • This place was absolutely beautiful. Quiet and filled with nature at every turn. The stunning plans and the well-kept trails makes this a go to for any nature Enthusiast or person just looking for a nice quiet place to take a walk. Many of places to have a picnic or family celebration. Enjoy the barbecue grills and seating area down by the water or down at the picnic area. There are many seating areas throughout the gardens and many picture opportunities. Be sure to check out the gift shop as well as the plant cell every second Saturday of the month. Along with your admission to the garden, you get admission to the beach side on the Matanzas Inlet...the rocks and shells are intriguing.
  • One word YUMM. The Friday fish fry is a must. My wife loves the baked and I love the fried. If you can't make up your mind you can have both. We love their home made chips or the potato pancakes and all of that you can get a single order or ALL YOU CAN EAT. They just keep it coming. What a great place but sometimes the line is long depending on how you hit it. Great fast wait staff.
