Great shrimp. All you can eat shrimp the night we went. My in-laws had clams and thought they were great. Roll that came with my meal wasn't good. I ordered the NY strip, which isn't normally my favorite cut, but this one was really good. Good portion sizes.

We have eaten here several years ago when we visited Amelia Island. We remembered it being good so we ate here again. The food was delicious. We will go again next year when we visit.

There are several Cedar River Seafood locations. We've eaten at this one before, and it was OK. This last visit was not. Our first clue should have been when some folks at a table near us were complaining that they'd been waiting an hour for their order. When I asked the server if the snapper was fresh, she replied that... More

I ordered grouper but the fillets were so small they likely weren't grouper. They also tasted very fishy with that metallic taste. We ate at a number of other fish restaurants and this is definitely at the bottom of fish restaurant on the island.

It looks like a hole in the wall, but totally great seafood. We got the trio of fried shrimp, oysters, & clams. Very lightly fried. The oysters were my favorite. Huge. Loved it

Very busy place. If you go for the fried fare, it's probably really good. Got take out for the family and most everything was good. I ordered the boiled shrimp, but did not like the seasoning. Way too salty. Wish I had known it wasn't just simple peek and eat. Buzz kill! The scallops were good, as was the fried... More

It was a stormy night so ordered take out fried clam strips and scallops to bring back to the condo. It was a 30 minute wait and when my husband went to pick it up he said there was a wait to be seated also so glad we got take out instead of waiting with the kids. The fried clam... More

This is our restaurant of choice when we go to Amelia Island. It is not fancy, doesn't have a great view but has wonderful, quality seafood at reasonable prices. The tartar sauce is some of the best I have ever eaten. The service is top-notch as well.
