good food, very busy restaurant

Very busy restaurant, service is good but do not be in a hurry. Try the cod or halibut, it is great.large portions under $10. Give it a try. Waitresses work hard and are pleasant.good hush puppies

The restaurant was very crowded, the seating uncomfortable, the decor non-existent, the help clueless and they were out of two items that we really wanted. The service was very slow and the wait time for food terrible. Four of us finally got our food-two dishes right- two orders completely wrong, finally those were corrected. The fifth person in our party... More

We go to Cedar River a few times a month. Our favorite is the fried shrimp but everything is good. Comes with a wide variety of sides and they have delicious desserts, too. They have all you can eat deals everyday, I think. People wait in line to get in there but, it moves fast. The waitresses are always friendly... More

We stopped by to try catfish and shrimp. The broiled shrimp were so tiny and rubbery, no taste, except for a little freezer burn. The bone in catfish, which I looked forward to, was about 6 inches long, and apparently a skinny dude! Hush puppies were okay, but I think they were frozen. This was not a $30.00 meal. No... More

He got fries & slaw; I got collard greens and fried okra. I got 12 nice shrimp plus a large serving of clams. Brought at least half... 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,...

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
