WE ATE IN THE BAR

Locals told us to eat in the bar since it was a lot cheaper than the restaurant. We liked the food and the atmosphere. Very chatty locals and well served.

Staff is very friendly, food was great, prices are reasonable. Atmosphere is fun - old hotels always have such character that new ones can never match. It's a must stop and eat!!

We spent one night here and had dinner and the complimentary breakfast here also. It's old and could use some paint. However the room was clean & comfortable, the staff was wonderful, we enjoyed our dinner, and the breakfast with the French toast was a highlight! Would definitely stay and eat here again.

Things started very well with an excellent crab bisque and warm rolls and nice salads ( though refrigerated, the tomatos had good flavor) Entree was awful. No choice of veggies and starch. I dont care for quinoa and carrots. The seafood trio we ordered was way overcooked and inedible. Bay scallops like erasers, tough shrimp and the fish was some... More

If you are visiting Cedar Key this is a 'must stop' for the original Hearts of Palm Salad. Everything on the menu is excellent and if you just want to kick back in the Neptune Bar, they serve an amazing burger with blue cheese, it is 'out of sight'.

The hotel is quaint, the rooms are all different. We got to choose our room as they were only half full. The staff were very helpful on check in. We decided to eat there for dinner. A big mistake as the menu offered 'starch of the day', no choice and the only starch on offer was rice - something my... More

We recently dined here with a fairly large party (12), and it was a night for large parties (3 others). That is a tuff situation for a restaurant this size. The service staff worked their tails off and did an admirable job. All of us commented positively about the service. AND, each dinner was served hot and cooked perfectly, AND... More

We had high expectations after reading the reviews. Nice olde Florida hotel ambiance, but service and food were below average. Maybe it was an off day, but disappointing.

Old, but first class food, service and attention to detail. Best menu in Cedar Key. You know it's going to be very good when anytime you walk in the place the owners are there working hard, being attentive to detail, yet take the time to welcome you and see to your needs
