Bonita Beach's hidden gem with waterfront dining featuring seafood, steak, salads and sandwiches. Special touches include our house made soups and sauces, and made to order dishes. Arrive by boat at our 24 slip marina (and fuel dock) with dock hand assistance from 10:00-5:00:00. Beer, Wine, Hard Seltzers. No reservations or call ahead seating. We don't have TV's or a loud bar. We are your little piece of Old Florida vibe where kicking back with your drink and food while enjoying the water views, boats going by and all the natural habitat around is the only thing you have to do during your visit with us!
With 20 years of experience of creating the Big Hickory specialties, our chefs are excited to present their best house made dishes to you daily. Our caring and committed staff has also been with Big HIckory for an average of 6 years and will ensure you have a fantastic experience with us.
We refuse to compromise on quality in our restaurant. That's why we source our fresh ingredients from local farmers' markets and make our own soups, sauces and specialty dishes.
Since our guests tend to linger especially on a nice day, it's impossible for us to take reservations or call ahead seating. If we should be on a wait, we have plenty of seats you can wait with a drink while still enjoying water views, which makes the time go by quickly! During season if you are trying to avoid a wait, we suggest arriving before 11:45 for lunch and before 5:00 or after 7:30 for dinner. Between 2:30-4:30 is also usually without a wait.
Off season, May-December, we rarely go on a wait, but don't forget we close on Monday's during this time as well.
Big Hickory Grille will be closed from Sept 14-28 for annual maintenance.
