Linger Lodge Restaurant & Campground – 7205 85th St Ct E, Bradenton, FL, 941-755-2757, http://lingerlodgeresort.com
Q-tips say: Go and enjoy. Enjoy not only the menus & service but the lovely outside views and the wacky array of taxidermied animals throughout. If you are a camper, this might be your spot. I was told you can also rent a kayak from the front office of the camping site which is next door but you don’t have to be an official camper.
I had the Caesar salad & pan seared Sea Scallops and the other half had the sauteed Frog Legs & regular salad. We also had to try an order of the Green Fried tomatoes which were good but not heavily breaded. We went during the week but the weekends they have music and the waitress said it gets very loud & a little crazy. Not sure why it took us so long to try this place, perhaps because we thought it was for campers, which we are not.
