Great food good price! Overlooks the water. Good service. The stone crabs were amazing. Gumbo not quite what we're used to more like soup but good flavor and lots of stuff.

Went for dinner the night we arrived in Crystal River. We were not disappointed. Waitress told us the snapper just came off the boat that day and was excellent. We both ordered it, and it was excellent! Liked it so much that we returned for lunch the next day after our manatee swim. Had the grouper sandwich...equally as good.

This is a great place for a river view and yummy food at a good price. My son had the crab legs and I had the fried shrimp and we only spent thirty dollars. The staff was friendly even teasingly me about liking the KC Chiefs.

We should have looked more closely at the menu before dining. While the seafood we tried (shrimp, oysters, grouper, flounder) tasted very fresh, we would have liked some more creative preparations than the standard "fried, broiled, or blackened".

This was my wife and I's first time here. The restaurant is very open and airy. I had Blackened Grouper with hush puppies and a shrimp cocktail and my wife had a 3 piece stone crab claws and grilled shrimp. The fish was grilled to perfection and the service was very friendly. Every thing is fresh right off the boat.... More

This place reminds me how great seafood restaurants use to be. Mom and pop owned with seafood fresh from the boats. We had their clamstrips. Some of the best you have ever had. Sweet and plump. You know they are not processed. The service is always warm and welcoming.
