Great Shrimp, Crappy Butter

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... read 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

Great food, nice scenery, cold beer...and a kid's menu too. A longer write up is logged in under "The Freezer", since that is the way it was presented to us, but not all of the GPS programs recognize that name.

We went for lunch and were very pleased with the food, the atmosphere, very casual, by the water. the clam chowder was good, the potatoes could have been softer, the peel and eat shrimp was delicious, my daughter had the mussels, also very good! We'll be back!

I took my "Seniors on the Move" clients to the "The Freezer" for lunch after a leisurely boat ride on the Homosassa River. I had eaten there a few times and enjoyed the food and ambiance. My clients had heard a lot about the place and were anxious to try it out. As they say, timing is everything. Unfortunately, it... More

The best meals are ones that are unexpected and the entire experience comes together. This was one of those meals, We happened on this place by accident. We were driving by and smelled the smoke from their smoker and decided to stop. You go through the bar to the tiki area to place your order. We were lucky enough to... More

A little tricky to find but.........it's wonderful. We had a week in Florida and this was one of our most memorable meals. Nothing fancy...just great food. Not a large menu.....but what is there is first class. Got to try the chowder and the shrimp. If you can't find it, ask for directions. It's well worth the search.
