Fresh seafood

This is not a fancy place, but their seafood is fresh. The fried shrimp and calamari were wonderful. I had the fried okra and it was just OK. You can order your food broiled, fried, blackened. Everything comes with hushpuppies and two sides. The soft drinks were in huge glasses with refills. Our... read more

This restaurant specializes in fried seafood. Our meals were overcooked and contained an excessive amount of grease. There was, however, plenty to eat. We had baby lima beans as a side and they were fantastic, but the rest of the food was fair to average at best. This is clearly a very casual restaurant. If you're looking for great seafood,...

Went here with my wife for lunch. The seafood was excellent as well as returning service. Prices very reasonable for the lunch menu. Will definitely return.

This was not our first visit to Cedar River, but it was just as good as our previous visits. You must be a seafood lover to enjoy this place because the menu is limited primarily to seafood. These folks know how to do seafood. We usually get the fried seafood platter for two, which consists of flounder, shrimp, scallops, oysters,... More

It was the 5 of us for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed it!! DH, in laws, our cousin and I. I ordered the platter which allows you to choose 3 options plus 2 sides. I got broiled shrimp and scallops, fried calamari, green beans and a salad. It was all delicious and plentiful! The creamy Italian dressing was amazing! Father... More

I ordered the deviled crab and it was delicious. You get tons of food for a reasonable price for seafood. Service was great, too!

We went to Cedar River on a Sunday evening for dinner. The service was excellent! The food was good. I ordered the flounder blackened. It was good, but could have used a bit more seasoning. My wife ordered the tiny shrimp which she said were excellent.

Seating in this place is limited, so waiting is a regular thing. However, if you get in, it is the same treats you have been expecting. A broad menu of well prepared good quality seafood in generous portions at very reasonable prices. This location seems a lot friendlier than some. Maybe the small size and friendly staff make the difference.... More
