First of all the Monday specials do not exist. As soon as you ask for one and are told they ran out of it the answer was the same for the next special. It is Monday! When my dinner arrived I had ordered roasted potatoes but was given rice because guess what...they ran out of potatoes. Yes seriously. I was... More

On a recent trip to Cedar Key we went for the first time to the Island Room - and we will go back! First let me say the view from the restaurant, no matter where you are sitting, is spectacular overlooking the gulf. It was nice to dine with linen table cloths and napkins too. They also have a very... More

I have dined here for dinner three times with a large group of people. We all had terrific meals. The grouper savannah was delicious. Very fresh fish dishes and huge portions.The homemade bread, soups and clams were a hit as well. The specials are always good, too. The whole back of the restaurant is windows overlooking the gulf. It always... More

Cedar Key has a number of restaurants, but the Island Room is the best restaurant in Cedar Key. It's upscale, not your friend fish place, but Peter and his staff sure know how to prepare fresh seafood. I've eaten there many time, and it's consistently good. The Grouper Picatta is the best, but it's hard to beat the crab cakes.... More

The rolls were home made sourdough marvels - the brushetta - little strips of flavour - olive oil sweet tomatoes a hint of garlic and topped with fresh basil. The bar guy made a beautiful martini and margarita - and advised on a really great bottle of white wine. For mains i ordered the grouper piccata - a perfectly cooked... More

For starters we ordered the clams casino, since the area is famous for their clams. Big disappointment. Some were gritty, and a little tough. I had a house salad which was good. My husband had grilled shrimp. Which he said the grill marks were actually chard, and spoiled the flavor of the shrimp. I had the ribeye, and it was... More

the food was delicious. the only problem was that they did not give prices for the specials and after eating a wonderful meal we were hit with a rather hefty bill. We were a little shell shocked.

The service was excellent. The food was so so. It might have been just what we ordered, but we all agreed that it wasn't the best meal we had there. The view is spectacular.

We arrived after trying hard to find the restaurant, which is part of a holiday complex and poorly signed. Once there we noticed all the tables were laid up ready but we were asked to wait whilst one which had just been vacated was cleared and relaid. This took ages as the receptionist doinf the job was busy chatting to... More
