I'm a shameless foodie. The owner let me know that although it is not on the menu, they did have TUNA STEAK. It is the best I've ever had! Seared is great but it's super thick, so I actually prefer it seared medium well. The spices they use are perfect, and not too salty. Even fully cooked, my friends and... More

Having gone to corky bell's previously. I was still looking for something good in Palatka. What a breath of fresh air, waitresses were laid back and fun, food was excellent and portions were very satisfying, not like corkys. Great specials and their seafood is excellent. Food is very well priced and the desserts are to die for. I go there... More

Musselwhite's is a hometown, family restaurant specializing in fresh, Florida seafood. We particularly enjoy the wonderful shrimp which are prepared just how you like them. The fried shrimp are succulent, light and never greasy. If you enjoy genuine southern side dishes, you will not be disappointed by the good, daily selection of fresh vegetables to combine with your entree. We... More

Thank you Musselwhites for another great family get together dinner. The family gets together and eats here when I'm home for a visit. Whether it's 10 of us or 30 of us, they always accommodate our needs. The food is great and the service can't be beat! When asked what he wanted to drink, one brother asked for 5 gallons... More

All three in our party ordered a lunch portion of flounder, after checking the price - which was not posted - with the waitress. The meal was pretty average, with a pitifully small portion of decently fried flounder, way-too-runny coleslaw, and probably canned lima beans. We paid the bill and left before checking all the details, and to our surprise,... More

Enjoyed dinner there recently. The waitress Angie was great - very attentive and professional. The shrimp was fried with just a light crispy batter and some of the BEST onion rings anywhere!! My husband got the seafood platter and said it was very good also. The atmosphere is not fancy but has excellent fresh tasting seafood and friendly staff. Would... More

Musselwhite's is a nice restaurant not far from my childhood home in East Palatka, Florida. They serve great seafood in a pretty nice setting. It's clean and service is pretty good. The chef used to work at Barnacle Bill's in St. Augustine, Florida, so the food is similar to that place. Specialty is obviously fried seafood, as it is in... More

This was some of the best fried seafood I have had. Everything was super fresh tasting and the batter/breadings were light and very good. The peel and eat shrimp was huge, plump, and perfectly cooked. The kids ate some shrimp and crab appetizers, but ordered burgers and these were really good too. Cooked right and fresh tasting, The pies were... More
