We were passing through town, so we ordered takeout to eat at our hotel. When we arrived, there were about 5 young girls standing around gossiping instead of helping us. We got back to the hotel only to discover that they didn't provide napkins or plastic ware. It would have been nice, especially for the clam chowder, to have utensils!... More

We've been eating at Crystal River for years when we lived there. It was and is still a great seafood place.

I wanted to get a nice lunch with my family and got off the highway for a meal. We saw good reviews for this place (not realizing it was a chain) on TripAdvisor, and opted for seafood. The menu was a disappointment, with no local seafood. In fact, the menu doesn't specify where most/all of the seafood is from. In... More

This restaurant is pretty good when you want to a eat a decent meal and not have to wait too long for your food. I definitely recommend getting the grilled salmon with there coleslaw and apple sauce. I was definitely satisfied with my visit to crystal river. The service was also very welcoming.

We didn't want to travel too far from our hotel and the clerk recommended this place that was right across the street. The seafood was fresh and prepared well. I had the galley platter, my wife had lobster.The restaurant hasn't much in the way of ambiance but who cares. The food was what we went there for. We weren't disappointed.

We stayed at the La Quinta down the road and got some to go food. We got a small helping of the fish dip, it was very tasty and enough for two appetizers, the fried green tomatoes where A+ and the fried clams where average. Very generous in size. I would try their blue crab claw appetizer next time.

Recently having moved to Tallahassee and was looking for a good "fish camp" type restaurant. This provided exactly what we were looking for! Good fried seafood. Had fried shrimp and crab cakes while my son had a ribeye (he's 15 and sometimes just has to be different). The steak was apparently good (lasted less than a couple minutes). The shrimp... More

My wife and I was passing by Tallahassee on our way home and called a friend that lives there and ask her to pick a spot for lunch, she suggested Crystal River Seafood since it was only a few blocks off the Interstate. It was a good choice the only thing I didn't like was it had only booth seating... More
