  • Been here several times and have always enjoyed the visit. Howard Solomon is a master inventor taking old junk and sculpting it into interesting items. A half way decent restaurant on an old boat in t...  read more »
  • An amazing mind with the talent to bring it alive. The creator died in August but the tour lives on in his own script. The garden and nature trail are worth seeing too. The cafe was just OK 
  • Even though they say that they've gotten coverage in major national media, Solomon's Castle doesn't seem to be known right in their own backyard (say, an hour away). It's a shame because this place is...  read more »
  • I went to Solomon's castle with my wife, and in-laws. I cannot believe all the good reviews, these people must have an amazing SEO company deleting their 1 star reviews. The place is a dusty and dingy tourist trap. It's over priced, in the middle of a swamp, the people were nice but they have this - we made this art from parts from an old washing machine shtick - that gets old fast. They brag about the floor being from this garbage left behind and the walls from that garbage...look at the ceiling...joists 4 feet on center...code violations...this guy must really be connected to have people walking through this dump. Stay away...the 5 stars are coming from family and friends or paid review writers.
  • This man is a 'mad genius'! What an eclectic atmosphere of homemade, refurbished/repurposed junk. He literally made someone else's garbage into a treasure and is sitting on the jackpot! Fun, family, tour, food, live music, and gift shop. A veteran, but doesn't do military discount?
  • Great place to take family and friends when they are here visiting in Florida love the surprise on all their faces many times we've had the opportunity of mr. Solomon being our guide let me tell you that tour is a real hoot when he's there especially enjoyed the time that mr. Solomon was working in the Alamo and he invited our family in very special place thank you
  • Found this Castle on the internet. I was quite surprised it was not in CAA suggestions. Very original concepts, talented artist, out of the ordinary place to visit. A gem found in the middle of nowhere. Food was excellent in a very natural environnement. Suggestion - spruce up the signs, clean the washroom more often. I would definitely suggest this outing to people who want to laugh and be entertained with anecdotes and word play.
  • The tour was great. My family and I spent the better half of a day walking through the house, over the grounds and eating at the restaurant that the owner/artist's family operates out of a pirate ship. Definitely worth the drive from wherever you are in Florida. The staff was always pleasant and very knowledgeable and the food from the restaurant is delicious.
