Delicious and generous

We had supper at Cedar River last night and were very pleased. My elder teen thought it looked "unpromising" from the outside, and I will admit that the ambiance is not a high priority. But the food was tasty! I had the friend shrimp, clam strips, and oysters with a baked potato and coleslaw. The... read more

We arrived 1 hour before closing. There was food all over the floor everywhere: big chunks of lettuce and other smaller stuff. Since we had walked there from our hotel and the restaurant was empty and it was 9:00 we stayed anyway based on reviews. Our waitress took quite a while and was less than enthusiastic we were there. She... More

Excellent greasy seafood. Fried anything is good. Fried shrimp; fried oysters; fried fish, etc. No atmosphere. Bright lights. Formica tables. Drinks and beer available. Just lots of good fried seafood. Don't eat for a week before you go!

For well prepared and succulent seafood other restaurants might be a better choice. Our orders of fried shrimp, scallops, and clam strips were rather on the chewy side.

Love the oysters! Cedar River is always the place to go! I sometimes stop by just for baked potatoes and cole slaw to go. Very casual atmosphere

We were looking for a place to eat after not being able to find parking at our other choice. There is lots of parking and it is only a block from the beach. It is a casual place with waitress service the service was friendly and very quick. Their servings are large with lots of choices. If I was to... More

Stopped by for a soup and salad for supper after a big lunch earlier in the day. the service was timely and friendly. An average casual restaurant with a variety of items on the menu, but mostly fried food. We prefer steamed or grilled fish and it appeared most people in the restaurant had the all-you-can-eat fried shrimp and fish.... More

We ate here quite a bit, around 8 times during our stay at Ft. Clinch in Fernandina Beach. The ambiance is family, not fancy. The seafood (we tried the oysters, shrimp and flounder platters) was cooked to perfection and plentiful. I often took home leftovers. The sides, especially the okra with tomatoes, lima beans, and cole slaw were delicious. The... More
