Fresh FRESH!!!

This restaurant was so good we ate here twice, taking friends with us the second time. The fried shrimp were excellent and even on the Senior Plate, I had about 15 shrimp. Another night I ordered the scallops and they were succulent. It is a very popular place and sometimes you have to wait but... read more

We recently went to Cedar River Seafood on 441 south. We only had a short wait time as there were only 2 of us and it was around 5 PM. The food was excellent, service was great and I would highly recommend this place. We had the seafood platter for 2 which was $40, and huge, but we took a... More

The only redeeming dish for us, were the delicious Fried Green tomatoes. We found it over priced and a little shoddy. Every dish served to us was served on cracked or chipped plates, saucers etc.

They have a wonderful "all you can eat" lunch. Mostly catfish, tilapia, flounder. It is cooked to perfection & delicious. We highly recommend this place to eat.

We were attracted to this place mostly because it's not a national chain. The decor is dated and the seats in our booth were in we bad shape. Table and chairs would be the way to go. Service was OK and our food came out of the kitchen FAST! Wife ordered coconut shrimps and I had the shrimp and fish... More

The seafood was good, fresh, hot. The sides, not so much. Reheated sides with foil over them. Mushy, soggy Lima beans, overly sweet, mashed sweet potatoes (they were cold) but the coleslaw was very good! Good hush puppies, good coconut shrimp, popcorn (peanut) shrimp was fresh, not greasy. Stuffed crab shells very good. Had gumbo as an app but it... More

Lunched with another couple, they loved their food, ours was just fair except for the New Eng clam chowder which was excellent. My salmon was very dry, almost like baked-frozen-then microwaved. Spouses coconut shrimp was overcooked. Friends had other fish entrees which they really liked. We will go back but avoid the salmon and coconut shrimp. Hint, get there before... More

My husband especially loves this restaurant as he likes the fried oysters There is always enough food to share. I especially like the catfish grilled. Love their vegetables, especially the okra and tomatoes, something I would never cook at home. This is a restaurant that has been around for a long time in Leesburg and is consistently good.

Fried, fried and more fried frozen what-they-call seafood. You can order non-fried, but I think the cook in the greasy white apron washes the breading off the frozen stuff and sticks in a broiler. Not a place for gluten conscious eaters. Lots of sweet iced tea (nothing wrong with that) in big glasses. Wine is available (cheap). Some non-native senior... More

I had not been here in 6-8 months. Glad I went back. Had a shrimp dinner at a good price. The staff was attentive and seemed glad to see me (party of one). I will be back to try another combination.
