We came in for a late lunch and were very pleased with the food, which came in large portions and tasted good. The pollack and cod were excellent, although I wasn't so crazy about my son's tilapia which was a bit on the fishy side. My wife's blackened flounder was very done and tasty too. The restaurant was a bit... More

If you need ambiance at a restaurant, than this isn't your place. However, if GREAT, down-home Seafood is your thing than I highly recommend this place. My Mom had been before, so I took her to lunch for my 1st time and was WOW'd. There is usually a long line, but they turn tables fast and the food comes out... More

IF you enjoy large portions of very tasty seafood this is the place for you! The all you can eat Talapia (blackened of course) was awesome. The restaurant itself is a little on the older side, but I guess that is why they can keep the prices within reason! The senior platter for two is very well put together with... More

Of all of the places to possibly eat at in Leesburg, this is definitely one of the top ones. They have great portions, prices, and food quality.

We are from the mid-west and always are looking for good seafood when we visit the east coast. We read about this on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. This is a great local joint for great seafood. Nothing fancy, just good food.

This place was recommended to us to help replace the seafood restaurants we left behind moving from Maine. It is in a bit of a strip mall in the middle of auto dealership row in Leesburg on 441. I can't say the ambiance makes it stand out. There are large fish hung on the walls, booths along each window and... More

my guest chose a friend flounder, while i opted for a blackened tilapia. both dishes were very good, as were the baby lima bean sides. the decor has not been updated in the past thirty years. the staff was friendly and efficient. altogether, it was an enjoyable meal, with excellent value.

We wanted seafood for our last night in FL, but didn't want to spend a fortune. Cedar River fit the bill nicely. Everything was fresh and well-prepared, but the fried shrimp was the best. Lightly coated, perfectly fried and not at all greasy. Friendly service, too.

We eat at this restaurant at least 3 times a month. The portions, choices of seafood, and friendly staff keep us coming back. My favorite is the fried oysters and my husband loves the all you can eat menu. When we have guests from out of town,, this is one of the places we take them to enjoy a great... More
