After a day of swimming/snorkeling with the manatees, this place was close by to re-fuel. Nice outdoor seating, delicious coconut shrimp and grilled salmon, and let's not forget $2 Happy Hour beers!

Fantastic place for casual dining! Great Seafood, try the flounder! Will definitely come back! Avoid the dining room if you can though, as it lacks in ambiance. The back deck at sunset though? The best place in Crystal River to eat! And I have been...More
