I understand there is alot of history in Cedar Key and buildings are old. But there comes a point where cleaning must be done. The place smelled like Mold and it was hard for me to breath. They should get this checked out. Alittle more effort needs to be put in. Their food was average. Not my favorite. The steak... More

We were intrigued by Island Hotel's history and stories of ghosts. We for certain wanted to make sure we had enough time to include this hotel's restaurant in our limited schedule. We were very glad that we did. A really nice evening indeed. Summary: Food: Above Average Atmosphere: Above Average Plus Value: Above Average Service: Excellent I really wish that... More

Loved this place!! We enjoyed all of our entrees, apps, salads and dessert!! Server was very sweet! The only thing I would change would be the butter served with the bread. No flavor at all. Maybe they should add some local honey.

Neptune Bar is a great place to chill with a mix of locals and visitors. If you see soft shell crab on the specials order twice! Winter snowbirds bring lively music to the cozy space. The main dining room is white linen, fine dining. The food is pricey, masterful and worth a visit. This is the home of the original... More

Very nice accommodations, and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Historical Inn that has been kept up nicely. The cozy, and I mean cozy bar is just right for a pre dinner drink or after dinner drink. A favorite of locals. The restaurant is excellent; food delicious and perfectly prepared. Only negative is that the specials were the same... More

Our server, Dawn, made the evening! Thanks, Dawn, for your fun upbeat personality and for steering us to great eats and interesting combinations. I am in search of a french vinaigrette to pair with my blue cheese dressing! You made a good meal into a great evening.

This was a very nice dinner place in a mostly casual town. That being said, you can still dress casual. I had the seared tuna special and it was excellent. We shared the crab stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and it was very good but could have a bit more spice. My wife had the red fish piccata which was... More

We did not get to see anyone while we were there but the person at the museum told us to stop by and see the inside. Plenty of beautiful woodwork and looks like a nice place to stay. The restaurant even though we did not eat there was huge and has a good size menu.

The food and service were really top notch. I started with a vine-ripened tomato salad with fresh basil and capers. It was fantastic! This was followed by broiled shrimp with wonderful fresh vegetables. My friend had grouper that she said was really, really good. Oh, and they served us wickedly delicious and large hot rolls. The owner, Peter, made sure... More
