Full-Service Restaurant with a Taste of the Everglades

When you dine at our Florida Everglades restaurant, you’ll have a meal to remember! Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or a snack in between adventures, we have something special in store for you at Swamp Water Café. Our full-service Everglades restaurant is located on the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation. Be our guest to sumptuous dishes from an array of great selections. Our cuisine is made from the freshest and highest quality ingredients, many from local purveyors.

Enjoy traditional American classics or Native American delicacies such as Seminole Indian Fry Bread, Indian Tacos and Bison Burgers. Real Everglades adventurers can try something new such as catfish, frog legs, and gator tail nuggets. Swamp Water Café offers one of the most unique family dining destinations in the Everglades. Out here off the beaten path, you will experience the Everglades as the place the Seminoles have made their home since creation.

Stop by soon and get a taste of real Florida! Catering and group menus are also available. Contact our office for more information.
