Fun times!

We only ate there once, and it was pretty good. The coleslaw and fried oysters were great. The Cedar Key clams were nothing special. We went back a second time when a local band was playing. They were fantastic. Truly talented musicians. I danced the night away. It was one of the highlights of our... read more

Looking for a place to get a quick bite and listen to some music ,,, this is the place. This is right on the water and has a great outdoor feel.

We enjoyed sitting on the deck, and taking in the atmosphere. Frequented by locals and tourists. Enjoyed the fried oysters and the salad with everything. The place is a little funky and not that clean, but it is what it is. Cheaper than other places in town, and ultimately satisfying. Wait staff was friendly, adding to the experience.

Once again had a good time in Cedar Key, visited the Big Deck several times and found the staff to be very friendly and chatty. One night we were even included in the owner making some key lime pie shots, which were delicious. Good music most nights even tho us Brits didn't know some of the stuff being played, still... More

We were at the Raw Bar last Saturday & had an amazing time. We started with clam chowder & garlic peel n eat shrimp. Both were delicious! Then I had ribs (which were falling off the bone good) & my husband had the Wedge Burger that was incredible!! The waitresses were so nice & we never needed anything. They took... More

Food was decent. But there was dirt everywhere....permanent stains on walls. The restroom was as bad as it gets. I have seen cleaner outhouses in forest campgrounds.

Went in at 9pm on 4/10/15 (a Friday) for Oysters/Clams cold beer. Waited 20/30 minutes for service (after making eye contact with waitress 3/4 times) we walked out. Told manager about experience and he made excuses and basically blamed it on the 2 waitress. NOT one time did he apologize!

We went here because some locals suggested it. He had a Cuban sandwich while I had a grilled grouper all the way (with cheese, onions, etc.). The sandwiches were perfectly cooked and the grilled fish was not overdone. They have some of the best cole slaw I've had anywhere. If you bring your pet, you can sit on the deck... More
