Fresh

Convenient location, even though it was busy, the service was good, the food was good (seafood and poultry), the salad was very fresh. Will definitely be back.

I've been to this restaurant 3 times and it has been excellent each time. It's a very casual place but very clean and the employees are friendly and helpful. The food is reasonably priced and you cannot beat the lunch special. One example is the lunch shrimp special. They give you 12 shrimp and two sides for a very reasonable... More

Years ago we ate at Musselwhite's and the food was really good. They had great chowder, the onion rings were great, etc. HOWEVER, over the last couple of years that we have tried eating there it was absolutely awful. Last night's experience was it for us. We will never go back, nor will we encourage others to eat there. The... More

We stopped here instead of going to another seafood restaurant just a little further down Highway 17. The reviews for this place were very good, but the food is at best average. The fish was very bland, the New England style chowder had watery base, and the steaks was over-seasoned. What was good? The Fried Shrimp were tasty, and my... More

Musselwhite's has been around a long time. Their food is awesome. I have found their prices a bit high but the quality is there so probably worth it. Now they have specials and then that really makes it worth it. A definite do when in Palatka. Oh and their staff is awesome!

I was in Palatka for work (used to stay here during the week for years), and stopped in for dinner. I was seated right away and had great service the whole time. I ordered the fried shrimp dinner which came with hush puppies and two sides. I had mac & cheese and butter beans. Everything was delicious! They have about... More

I visit my parents in Palatka every March and we ALWAYS visit Musselwhite's for dinner. The service is always friendly and the dinners are always yummy. The fried shrimp is my favorite here. They're light and delicious and you can choose from the regular fried shrimp or the coconut shrimp - both are yummy! The restaurant is casual and usually... More

Friendly, fast service, small restaurant in East Palatka. Eat there about twice a month and always enjoy the fried shrimp special between 4-6pm. Great food at great prices, just can't beat it!!!

Musselwhites is a very casual establishment. Seafood is of course, the main fare, but they do have landlubber choices too. I eat here when in the area snd have never had a bad experience. Staff is friendly, food is good and usually good portions.
