All you care to eat crab legs....any day of the week! WOW talk about OUTSTANDING! Can't say enough about this place! It was a $17 taxi ride away from our hotel (Westin Beach Resort) and a little off the beatin' path but so very worth it. We looked it up on line as we wanted to find all you can... More

Catfish Dewey's is strictly your blue collar restaurant of average food at a fairly low price. The quantities are generous, but don't look for quality or epicurean delight! Their specialty is obviously catfish: fried, blackened or grilled (with lemon pepper). All are average: the fried seems to come right out of a frozen food bag, the blackened is too spicy,... More

Restaurant i have enjoyed for years, the facilities could use a makeover, or at lest a major cleaning. The waitress's are very busy, because the place is busy.I ordered the farm raised catfish. It's all you can eat for $16.50. I have never got past the first serving, with cold slaw, fries and ice tea..

Had the fried seafood platter. The food was cooked perfectly and there was an abundance of food. This is a great southern seafood restaurant! Martha was an amazing server. She was patient and made sure we had an enjoyable meal!

Horrified, at first glance you say nah, I am not going in there but there are people waiting on the inside for you, so you go in. Outdated, unattractive and the waiter was in beads of sweat, the other was constantly pulling up his pants ( here's a clue for him 'belts' they work). Honestly, because of the condition of... More

This place was not a good choice for dinner. Its a loud brightly lit place that has an almost small town diner. The difference here is the food is not that great. I got the seafood platter that was, generously speaking, bland. The food had no flavor at all. But even worse is the other stuff we observed. We were... More

We had frog legs, gator tail bites, early bird fish fry and small order of scallops and pasta. The portions of cabbage salad are huge. Everything was mighty tasty. Prices are very reasonable.

This is the second visit on my annual trip to Ft. Lauderdale. the place looks old, but I love it, most seats are different from each other as if they bought it from a garage sale, but I love it. In a nut shell, best seafood quality and quantity in town. 12 giant scallops cooked to perfection the way you... More
