We were looking for a seafood restaurant that the locals ate at, and I believe that we found one! When the uniformed police officer came in and sat down to eat I knew that we were in the right place. It's nothing fancy but the service is very, very good. The food was well prepared and served hot and quickly.... More

Have had the fried shrimp here on numerous occasions and it's always good, as was the service. Haven't had anything but that.

Laid-back, no white tablecloths, just great food & great service. Had a 15 minute wait, but it was Saturday night, dinnertime, with maybe four large family parties finishing dinner. Surprised it was so popular, but the prices are very reasonable. No frills at all, just the basics. I had the popcorn shrimp dinner, best shrimp I ever had, came with... More

I resisted the fried seafood this visit and had blackened grouper, but my wife had the fried shrimp and oyster combo. Hush-puppies and coleslaw complimented our meals. This is a simple place, with friendly staff and good service. You can tell that the fish and crustaceans are fresh. They're prepared in kind of a North Florida style, which means not... More

This place is a real dive but the food is fast, hot, and plenty of it. Good seafood. Service is mostly great. Have had a couple of times when service was slow but they are always busy. Oysters on the half shell are great and reasonable. We get the fried shrimp usually so don't have a lot of experience with... More

So the other reviews talk about the place being run down, that is a very true statement. My experience was they are a very small restaurant, need more space for diners, and they are under staffed. There is no organization, the waitress was bring me my drink and sauces, she was stopped and question about what she was doing, I... More

Eat wonderful seafood with the locals! The Seafood Kitchen offers a large variety of options and gives you plenty to eat! Have it fixed the way you want it! Super friendly service. It's homey. Come casual. My hubby and I come on a regular basis. We are locals and this is truly our favorite place!
