Yummy

I don't normally order fried seafood, but fried shrimp came with the broiled lobster tails that I ordered. Wow, all of it was scrumptious! We were disappointed that beer and wine isn't available, but the food made up for it. We will definitely eat here again.

The food was very good... The service was good, fast, and efficient... The prices are very reasonable... And, they offer a 10% discount when presented with a room key from Motel 6 and perhaps other participating motels.

My wife and I split the Seafood Platter for one. There was enough for two people! The platter included pollock, crab cakes, clam strips, oysters, shrimp, hush puppies, and two sides. For the sides we picked coleslaw and fried okra. We up charged for haddock which was very good! For dessert we split a piece of key lime pie. That... More

Been there a couple of times and even stopped for a take out once. The food is very good. The servings are more than enough. Place is always busy. Cheese grits are awesome. Just wish I could get a beer to go with the fish. No alcohol served here. Food makes up for it.

I consider myself a polite reviewer - I never personally attack anyone, nor do I use harsh words when describing a sub-par dining experience - so, please excuse me; the only thing that crossed my mind when I left the restaurant was I wish I could repeal the food I forced myself to eat. In other words; I tried to... More

We drove up and down Monroe Street until we found a full parking lot. Place was packed. It was $30 all you can eat crab-leg night. Too rich for my blood, but there was a lot of tables with the buckets being filled. Tried the shrimp & was great. Got some fried pickles and they were excellent. Salads are good... More

Our recent visitt made all 3 of us happy. We beat the crowd on Friday night and arrivved around 5 pm. The serrvice was friendly and efficient. The all you can eat shrimp were wonderful with a thin, delicate breading and were cooked to perfection. The combo platter of broiled shrimp and scallops and crab cake was terrific. The small...

I love to try different catfish when I travel. My wife and I went here on valentines day visiting from Chicago and enjoyed it immensely. The wait was minimal, waitress courteous, and the price reasonable. They had some of the tastiest grits I've ever had as well.

I have been a customer for 20 years now and I can truly say that I have never had a bad experience with the food nor staff! For a family of 4 we always spend close to a $100 because we hubby always get 3 lobster tails :-) lol. The seafood is fresh and it appears that the manager is... More

I have visited many Crystal River Seafood's around the state and have never been disappointed. The one in Tallahassee was very clean, service was great, and food was brought quickly to our table. Always a good meal.
