They had a soft opening last night for contractors and employees. Not surer when they will open to public. you can get there from 42 or 25. Signs are in both places. It is an upscale gator joes.

I have several coworkers that went the last two nights and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They said the sunset was fantastic.

Great view, good drinks, okay food that we had. A little pricey.

We went there today for lunch. Excellent food! Wait staff seems very organized. The gumbo soup is to die for!! A bowl of this could be a meal. Great views. My husband had the shrimp creole and I had the fried chicken. This place is a MUST to try. Easy to get to. They give directions on their website. I didn't notice a house salad and the coleslaw serving was just a "taste". I could be wrong about the house salad. We will definitely return!!!!

I have eaten at several Tampa Bay area restaurants where Chef Dave Del Rio ran the kitchen ... all had excellent food.

Most notably, Del Rio’s Cafe. Which is were he refined his Cuban/Spanish/Creole fusion style. His Gumbo rivals Mulate's in NOLA!

Had dinner there last night with my far, far too good look'en GF for me.

Nice place. Well done up scale, Fla cracker, fish camp kinda motif. Nice indoor and outdoor dining areas with small'ish indoor bar area. Down stairs is a large outdoor bar that was a pretty happening scene with a band playing. BIG beach area on the lake with floating docks large enough for 20 25 boats to tie off.

Service was good and the staff was trying hard ... for their 4th day they are off to a good start.

Decent beer selection (they did New Belgium Fat Tire on tap) but considering they had $80.00 bottles of Champagne on the menu, I thought the beer selection would/should have more craft and micro brew selections.

Food was VERY good! Excellent smoked fish dip (Mahi & Wahoo) for starter. GF & I shared a bowl of gumbo (it was every bit as good as Del Rio's Cafe I mentioned above) and Shrimp-n-Grits ... very, very good. Even though we were stuffed (nice sized portions of all 3 of the above) ... we simply could not resist trying the Sunset Orange Cake and it was outstanding! with a wonderful fresh orange flavor.

Entree prices are in the $12 - 20.00 range. For the quality and portion, I think they are very fairly priced.

Both owners came around and chatted us up in a genuine kinda way .... both nice guys and I wish them well ... I think they will.

I can assure you that we will be back and taking friends with us!

Eaton's, Lake Weir
Went there tonight with friends. Had an EXCELLENT meal, great pomegranate martini, and our waitress, Megan, was one of the best waitresses we've had anywhere. She was professional, friendly and had a great sense of humor, besides being attentive. Will definitely go back. Oh, and the sunset was spectacular. Would love to go back when it's warm enough to sit outside. They do have the heatlamps outside and there were people sitting outside on the porch. Not brave enough to try that tonight.
