Good shrimp!

As usual, my meal was good. I usually have shrimp and scallops, but added fish this time. The fish was good, but I prefer the shrimp and scallops. My cheese grits were not as hot as they should have been. Was too full for dessert, but I love their key lime pie!

We dined twice at this restaurant in late May 2015. The staff is so kind and the food is delicious. It is the best southern seafood restaurant. My family in TLH had been telling us about the food and this time I tried it and liked it. We had dinner there one day and came back two days later for... More

No surprises here, most fish is just fried, if that is what you like to eat. My scallop dinner was plain and had very little is any taste because I could not eat it fried or greasy. The atmosphere was simple without any décor to appreciate.

I've always liked these restaurants when I find them. This one has been in Tallahassee for many years. Very convenient location on North Monroe St.

My wife and I have been dining there for almost 20 years and have never been disappointed until tonite. We both had the Scampi Fiesta and our shrimp and scallops were so over cooked that the shrimp were rubbery and scallops tough, dry, and chewy. The rice was very dry too. They were not crowded either so the inattention of... More

The stuffed flounder was satisfactory and the cheese grits and hush puppies were above average. Otherwise, a little above average price for average food.

Last weekend while in town we ate at the Fishermans Wife restaurant. The food was amazing however a little pricy. This weekend we decided to try Crystal River to compare. They were having a special..... 30 shrimp for $14.99, fried only. Since we hadn't eaten since breakfast my husband ordered this. I ordered the fried green tomatoes and ate 4... More

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 oysters were the best he had tasted. My husband and daughter (not... More
