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.

Great food off the beaten path.

This restaurant is a little off the road, but is a must find. once you order from the bar your food is hot and fast to your table.

Nothing fancy about this place but the food is great. Steamed shrimp is the best - also the crab legs. Clam chowder in bread bowl is also great. Prices are right - good beer selection. We go there several times a winter.

awesome fresh shrimp and mussels and chowder. Fast and friendly and the cider was cold and good! Great place for a late lunch after a day on the water!

Went for dinner on busy Saturday night, sat under a tiki hut on the water. Order snow crabs, 1/2 order of shrimp, mullet dip, 2 beers and 1 glass of wine- all for $38!! Great beer selection, most are $2 for 16 oz. Very rustic, casual (you are actually in an old commercial freezer) Food is amazing, went back the... More

My friends and I come to Homosassa once a year and eat at The Freezer late on Saturday afternoon. It's always busy! We dock our boat and then try to get a table. The restaurant is covered but open air, so it can be hot, depending on the season. There are also some dockside picnic tables. You read the large... More

An hour trip worth it for absolutely delicious shrimp. Great old bay flavor, not overly seasoned (as it was at Peck's). One pound of mussels in garlic butter - best ever, tender, perfectly seasoned with fresh minced garlic. Can't decide which I liked better but will come back for both. Hard to seat 5 couples together but we were able... More

This place is very low key. You actually have to walk up to bar and place your order. They only take cash.....but what is lacking in décor and service really gets made up with the delicious food!

We came by boat and were served within 20 min. caught it just right because they got busy fast, not that that was a problem the food came right out cooked to perfection. I have never enjoyed snow crabs as much flavor and size. we ordered steaks and seafood so I could have some the next day after the drive... More

Not easy to find but when you get there you are rewarded with a visit to old Florida. No shiney, glitzy decor here, that is for sure. If you are lucky enough to find a seat it will most likely be with other people. Everyone is super friendly so you won't mind. If you go in the Tiki Bar area,... More

When you arrive at the Freezer your initial reaction will be, wow this place is a hole in the wall. From the looks of it, yes it is a hole in the wall but when you try the food, you will think differently. This place features the best shrimp you can eat in the area. It's seasoned in Old Bay...
