“Wild campground and restaurant”

Linger Lodge is the perfect place to recapture those lazy, carefree times. Large, live oak trees dripping in Spanish moss shelter the restaurant and campground. This is "Old Florida" at its best. Located in Bradenton, on the picturesque banks of the Braden River, Linger Lodge is untouched by time and full of taxidermy—both good and bad.

The taxidermy here is worth the stop. Sunday mornings feature giant bloody Mary’s that are a meal themselves. I take friends here as a novelty. A kitsch treasure!

Such a fun restaurant full of bad taxidermy And good stories. If you come here for the food you are missing the point - especially since the menu has a middle flap featuring Roadkill. That said who can say no to Alligator bites and frogs legs! Well worth the trip and after lunch you can rent a canoe and go down the river.

This place is kitschy and quaint. A real throw back to old Florida with tons of taxidermy decorating the inside and live oaks along the Braden River banks outside. There's a 'RV' camp that has permeant residents (trailer park) and some short term dots along the water front as well as cabins you can rent. They have a boat ramp and kayaks and canoes for rent.

The food is Florida traditional sea food and southern fare. Alligator, frog legs, cat fish, and grouper among other favorites. I've eaten here twice and both times it was good. They have a full par and decent beer selection.

On the weekends it can get busy with the Friday karaoke and Saturday and Sunday live music. You may want to make a reservation.

Take your time and explore the place it's interesting and unique. You won't forget visiting this place.
