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.

Delicious. 2nd night ordered mussels, steamed shrimp and smoked mullet. 1hour and 40 minutes later we received our food. Food was good but obviously a problem in the... read more

This was our second trip to The Freezer. A friend took us there a few years ago when we were visiting, and we made sure to go back again when we were in Florida. Either it was even better than the first time or I forgot just how good it really is. The Freezer is not fancy by any means,... More

We ate here this weekend after going to see the mermaid show at Weeki Wakee springs.Dont expect a restaurant but they do have some great boiled shrimp and clam chowder and the smoked fish dip is also good.Just a neat little place to visit and have a few beers.Again, the shrimp are excellent.

I didn't know what to expect when I went to The Freezer, but I kept an open mind. What I found was an old fish camp feel with limited menu but what I tried was good. The shrimp was good and the beer cold. My partner ordered the talipia which he said was okay (not what I would have had... More

Just look at the seating! Constantly full all of the time! for those that gave this place a negative review, perhaps you should go to the five star French restaurants that cater to people of your sort. if you enjoy great seafood cooked well, at a good price, as well as some really awesome beef equal in quality to the...

I heard so many comments about this place, I had to give it a try. Their specialty is shrimp. Take a huge pot, throw in some spices and boil them. What you get is mediocre at best peal and eat shrimp. If you enjoy eating messy shrimp in a dirty beer stained concrete floor while choking on smoke overlooking a... More

You don't go for a fancy dinner, it's very casual but the food is excellent. Our friends ( who visit annually) have been raving about the shrimp for years. We all went and they were right! No wonder there is a line. We did get to sit out by the water. It's really a little hole-in-the-wall but the Clam Chowder... More

Finally made it here after several trips to the area. This is not for everyone, but if you enjoy a fun casual environment, great food at even greater prices, and good service, this place is for you. You will get messy.....and if you are looking for a linen napkin kind of place. Leave. It will leave a spot open for... More

The captain on our manatee tour at Crystal River recommended this place for the shrimp. One of the girls at the customer service desk seconded that. We decided to do as the locals do and give this place a try. Once we got there from the parking lot it looked busy and a bit…divey. But there were a lot of... More
