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!

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

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
