A seafood joint that is frequented by the locals. Inside is a simple open concept dining room with old fashion maritime décor. The menu featured fresh seafood of all varieties and Southern side dishes and appetizers. Special was crawfish which we ordered for apps as well as fried pickle chips. Both were crisp and delicious. As an entrée I had... More

The food was excellent. The service was very good even though they were short handed. Those working were a very good team and worked efficiently

Stopped in to get 3 carry out dinners (fried shrimp and oysters, fried flounder, and fried shrimp). All three dinners were well prepared and was not overly greasy. The variety of sides (French fries, green beans, fried okra, cole shaw) were hot (except for the cole shaw which was cold). The portions were large. While waiting on the carry out,... More

My family and I were staying in Lake City for the night on our way down further south into Florida. We looked around for a local place to eat, and ended up deciding on Cedar River. I will say the outside is a little deceiving - it looked more like a dark bar. However, there were several older couples around... More

We recently moved to Lake City and had eaten here in the past. Never disappointed! I usually order the fried pollock with cheese grits and coleslaw. At lunch time for just a little more, they offer all you can eat. The portions are generous, the fried fish is crispy and cooked just right. Have also had the blackened fish. The... More

If you like seafood and you like fried foods then this is the place for you. The portions are large and the food is good but I don't think I've ever seen anything come out of the kitchen that wasn't fried.

Generally, the food is pretty good and the staff are friendly. The shrimp was really good when we had been there before. The problem is that it depends on what and when you order. Apparently, on my last visit I had ordered fried catfish that was either out of season or raised in a poorly kept pond. You know how... More

This restaurant is part of a small chain, mostly in Florida. We visited the one in Lake City for dinner with friends while on route to Georgia. The menu was quite varied and our orders ranged from chicken, to tilapia, to shrimp and clam strips. It was quickly evident that the food was of good quality, cooked properly and provided... More

We enjoy Cedar River Seafood. When asked where I wanted to go to dinner on Mother's Day I only had one choice- Cedar River Seafood! It's a family restaurant- it's not fancy and it's clean The staff is pleasant and it's always on my "to go to" places.
