LINGER LODGE RESTAURANT
A Unique Dining Experience
Nestled along the lazy Braden River, Linger Lodge is Old Florida at its Best! Established in 1945 as a fishing camp, over the years it has evolved into a great place to dine, listen to live music and enjoy the great views.
Folks naturally gravitate to the extensive taxidermy that adorn the inside walls of our full liquor bar
and air-conditioned dining room. Our two outside covered and screened decks provide picturesque water views.
Linger Lodge is known for its great food! Our menu specialties include Florida Grouper, Alligator, Frog legs,
Smoked Meats & Seafood, Catfish, Burgers, Reuben's, Gumbo, Alligator Chowder and much more.
