This place is a tiny hole in the wall restaurant (though it is Cedar Key), but it is not on the main strip on the water near the other places. The decor is pretty simple, and the menu overall is nothing to brag about, but the chowder was absolutely world class. Order the bowl of chowder, its worth every penny.... More

Visited this restaurant and was completely let down. I've had the chowder from Publix, great chowder. However, my order wasn't put in. It was brought after everyone had eaten. They brought it to me to go. Then were going to charge full price. They took it off after I requested, that was nice. Too expensive for what they offer.

While enjoying laid back, quaint Cedar Key we had two lunches here - had a cup of clam chowder both times and it was great- thick with nice hints of spices. Very flavorful. Second day we added a salad - also very good with a variety of greens, beets, etc. (hubby gets the olives.) Nice walk from our Harbour Master... More

The clam chowder was awesome!! The halibut fish sandwich was tasteless, no seasoning . The service was great and friendly.

We stopped for take out because we didn't have time to eat and catch the sunset. I think the short trip back to our room and the Styrofoam containers may have contributed to the poor quality of some of the items we ordered. We both ordered a fried seafood combo that consisted of fried fish and fried shrimp. The fish... More

Heard the clam chowder was award winning so we had to try it. It was superb! The crab cakes were delicious also.

We stopped in for just a snack, so all I can rate them on is the clam chowder. But it's great!!! They even have it in the can so you can take some home, it's concentrated & you add your own heavy cream & half & half. But what you get in the restaurant is fresh made, it's got LOTS... More

After a long day we went to Tony's for some fresh steamed clams and a bowl of clam chowder. It was very good.

Fried grouper sandwich ...delicious!Went for lunch and tried to go back for dinner, but waited too long. While eating the chowder I considered ordering another bowl,... More
