Al's deck overlooks the Tavares Seaplane Base & Marina, with boat slips for public docking, a landing area in the water for seaplanes and ramps for the planes to go between the water and the parking lot.
J. B. Boondocks Bar & Grill is a former fish camp, situated on Little Lake Harris. Very casual and friendly. Food is good; prices are reasonable. We sat out on the deck, overlooking the lake, a nice relaxing atmosphere. Live music [1 musician, country style], and a lot of talking and chatting between the musicians, the waitpeople, and the customers -- a nice neighborhood feel. (from Trip Advisor)
