We were traveling from Port Richey to St Augustine and was looking for lunch place -We were on 17 passing Palatka where by chance we came upon Musselwhites --There were plenty of cars so we figured it must be a fairly good place --The interior was homey --The waitress suggested sushi grade yellowfin tuna grilled --We eat plenty of fish...

I stopped by this place on the way to St Augustine. The overall atmosphere is low key but nice. The food and service at Musselwhites was very good. I had the stuffed shrimp and they were the bomb diggity. The conch fritters are just as good as in the Bahamas.

Heard great things about Musselwhite's Seafood. Had the shrimp & scallop combo. Not very impressed. There is a sign out front looking for a fry cook. Should have been my clue. Will give it another try soon.

Not only is the shrimp good - the grilled Pork Chop is wonderful and the Grilled Chicken salad is wonderful too. The catfish does not taste one bit fishy. The staff is very friendly and knows most folks by name. I will go back when I am here. Shrimp is on special from 3-6.

Server was OK. Food was terrible and way over priced. We tried the calamari as an appetizer. It was served with marinara sauce yuk and it was so chewy it was like chewing tasteless bubble gum. I ordered the oysters and crab patty. The oysters did not taste like oysters. I am still trying to figure out what they were.... More

Parking is limited but, we scored right at the door! We were seated promptly which was a little surprising as busy as it was. I enjoyed lunch portion fried shrimp (6), steamed yellow squash, zipper peas & hushpuppies. The sweet tea was excellent. The key lime pie was not the traditional & I really didn't care for it at all.... More
