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

We chose it because it was walking distance from our hotel and we were glad we did. It was Friday evening and quite busy so we decided to eat at the bar. The bar was very comfortable, but small. Our bartender was very busy but also very attentive. I had the special of the day, fresh grouper, grilled with baked... More

Apparently blackening scallops is a difficult technique and according ot the waitress, it took 3 attempts to get my scallops cooked. The cajun seasonings were not even on said scallops. These were bay scallops, about 14 of them and a bit overcooked. Fried clam strip dinner was plentiful and fried shrimp were plump and flavorful. I would give this place... More

While visiting Palatka, my friends and I had planned to eat at Corky Bells, but the wait was too long. Therefore, we tried Musselwhite's and were glad we did. The seafood was excellent. The hush puppies and sweet potato fries were as good as any I've ever had. The restaurant is kind of bare bones in decor, but their prices... More

When I asked our waitress if the tilapia was farm raised or wild caught, she replied "oh, it's caught" but returned from the kitchen shortly thereafter to admit that it was farm raised. At least she went and asked. Food was average, I don't really remember even what we ate now. No need to dress up. Just walk over from... More
