Ridiculously large portions of pretty good seafood

We went to Crystal River Seafood based on recommendations from TripAdvisor - and we were glad we followed the other traveler's advice. Although just about all the dishes were deep fried - it was delicious seafood. My fried shrimp was absolutely delicious. My brother-in-law reported that his fried... read more

Food was good we shared a platter for two. Lots of food and service was fast and attentive. So if you want a good fried seafood dinner give them a try.

I ate hear twice during the few days I was in Tallahassee. The food tasted fresh and was perfectly prepared. The service was acceptable and the prices were very reasonable for the amount of seafood that was served. Will definitely return if I am ever in this area again.

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
