Everglades City – Chokoloskee And Beyond

Everglades City is a small community with less then 600 very proud permanent residents. The stores and restaurants here are all family owned and operated which makes them unique. Each of the restaurants have their own specialties you’ll want to try during your visit. This is a Foodie’s Paradise! Some of our restaurants are closed during the Summer months…..we’ll always let you know what your options are.
