Real Gem

Pressed for time after a manatee tour, our group of 8 popped in for a quick bite while throwing caution to the wind. The stone crab were served warm with butter (definitely better cold with mustard sauce), but they were cheap, fresh, and tasty nonetheless. The beer was cheap and cold and came in... read more

Shrimp and steak on Wednesday evenings after 5pm. Garlic shrimp and snow crab. Best ever. Only locals know of it. Best kept secret in Homasassa fl It's known as the Freezer. Google Cedar Key Fishto get address.

This was my second adventure at this off the beaten path fish house that from the outside, you might be intimidated to enter; it doesn't look much like a dining establishment but it is always full of hungry seafood lovers. The steamed shrimp, smoked mullet and fish dip are some signature items. The beer is cheap and cold, and the... More

NOTE: If this review looks exactly like the one I wrote for The Freezer, it is. This is the same exact place!! Let's start with the good....the steamed shrimp are fantastic! 2lbs for $21 right about now. Served with butter and cocktail sauce. Skip the cocktail sauce and ask for their hot sauce...really good. The fish spread is really pretty... More

We've been to Cedar Key Fish & Oyster Company (also known as the Freezer) several times on visits to Homosassa and have never been disappointed. Their steamed shrimp are some of the most tasty we've had anywhere. This visit I tried their clam chowder in a bread bowl for something different and it was also delicious. Fun place to eat... More

If you like good seafood, at reasonable prices, this is your place. It's a dump, paper towels on the table, plastic drink glasses, Styrofoam dishes and great shrimp. Cooked to perfection. Best shrimp I've hadin a restaurant.

The shrimp here are worth traveling for, however, THE IMITATION BUTTER is terrible !! The ambience is great, but, it is a single line for beer and food, and we had to wait 45 mins in line. Beer choices..not so great...Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams the only ones worth drinking...but we are from Asheville, and we are beer snobs. PS:... More

Had their stone crabs - most excellent! The sweetest I've ever had. Shared peel and eat shrimp with my party and they, too, were the best I've ever had. Husband had mussels, which were also excellent. The food was top of the line - only reason it got four stars instead of five is because of the atmosphere. It was... More
