Welcome to Rita’s Landing. Established in 1942, just after Francisco “Pancho” Morales invented the Margarita on July 4th, 1942. Tucked away in the heart of St. Somewhere on Renegades Bayou, Rita’s is a secluded establishment that can only be accessed by water, adding to its allure. No directions needed… if you’re looking for the best Margaritas and Gator Tacos on the river, you’ll find your way here!

Our signature Margaritas, made with only the freshest ingredients and 100% Blue Agave Tequila, were awarded “Best Margaritas on the River” for the past 25 years! Cpt. Da’Til, our mixologist since the early 70s, will serve your favorite Margarita, but be sure to try our house specialty, The Datil Diablo…an exclusive Margarita found only at Rita’s. Enjoy our rustic, ‘Old Florida’ setting inside or outside on our full, wrap-around deck complete with scenic river views and the sounds of nature.

Whether you’re a local looking for a laid-back hangout or a visitor in search of an authentic taste of Florida, Rita’s Landing won’t disappoint! And who knows, maybe you’ll uncover one of the many secrets that have been whispered about this place for decades.
