Great hush puppies!

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... read more

LOVE their soft-shelled crab, shrimp, gator tail, and my dad loved their fingerling catfish! Worth driving from St. Augustine or Jax for!

We stop at Musselwhites as many times as possible when we go through Palatka. Nobody makes better fried shrimp than they do.

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

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.

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!
