Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.

Best Shrimp

This is the place my 14 year old twins make us go every time we are down visiting my mom. The best shrimp I have ever had. Great atmosphere.

Wow.....the shrimp was awesome. The only thing that could have made it better was a side of good bread to soak up some of those delicious flavors

Best peel n' eat shrimp ever!!! Did not get any sides. Tried 2 different times to order the smoked mullet dip but they were already sold out. Shrimp huge, split down the back and served with melted butter and cocktail sauce. Garlic bread and mussels in garlic sauce were covered with finely chopped garlic...seasoned great. Long lines even at 4:30... More

The first time at the freezer, we stopped here for a drink after eating elsewhere. It was very crowded and the line to order beers/food was really long. Our second trip, we arrived before 6pm and beat the crowds. We ordered the snow crab legs w/ side of coleslaw and a half order of steamed shrimp (1 lb). Delicious! We... More

We visited the Freezer for dinner last night. It was steak night. While we didn't get the steak it looked and smelled Amazing as it was cooked over an open flame! We got shrimp and stone crab. It was all wonderful! We are seafood snobs as we have lived in the Fl Keys as well as St. Augustine. This food... More

This is where the locals go for great tasting seafood at a value price...1.25 pounds of deliciously steamed peel & eat shrimp for $11 (request the hot sauce...it's DELICIOUS), very popular place resulting in limited seating, service is slow...but worth the wait if you have time to hang out on the dock under a tiki hut :)

Never found a seat, and standing in a long line for a dinner order does not seem relaxing. The food looked like it might be good, but who knows when or if we'd ever get to enjoy it. We left

There is no table service. There are bodies items. You order at one of two bars. The menu has about ten items in it and really a sleeve of saltines is the only side dish. The mussels were excellent! The smoked mullet dip and homemade hot sauce were amazing. The shrimp and crab claws were good. The line was long!... More

The place came recommended for a local tour guide, and it did not disappoint!!!! Pulling up you may have second thoughts, but trust me go inside!! The atmosphere was fun, and relaxing! While I think there could be a better way to serve rather than having to wait in a line believe me the wait is worth it!! The seafood... More

We heard from people who had been there so of course we had to try it, being real fresh gulf shrimp lovers. The shrimp was well seasoned and very tasty. The cole slaw was good and the beer ice cold. You must stand in line for your order, hope to grab a table & they bring it to you when... More
