We normally stop at the restaurant in Lake City. This was our first stop in Gainesville. We were travelling and our willing to take an extra few minutes to eat at local restaurants. This is worth the time to get to from the interstate. However, be careful of following older GPS information - they have moved. We called and used... More

We visited Cedar River on a Saturday evening with family. We arrived about 6:15pm and were seated promptly. The restaurant was busy, but not overcrowded. The waitress came and took our drink and food orders at the same time. With our drinks, we received crackers and some fish/shrimp dip. The dip was decent and was a nice appetizer before dinner....

When you just want some shrimp, tilapia, flounder, or some kind of fish, you can get a decent meal here that's affordable. Since I don't eat crab, I'm not sure if it's on the menu. This is an honest restaurant, not like a big chain that shows you delectable food on TV, but in the restaurant, the portions are much... More

We went to Cedar River on a Saturday evening with family. The restaurant was not too busy, but most people were probably watching the football game. Service was decent. I ordered the combo with fried shrimp and Pollock. The shrimp was quite good. The Pollock I had blackened. It was ok, but did not have much flavor. We'll go back... More

We enjoyed the "family & friends" atmosphere - bright enough and not too loud. And we all agreed that the high points were the friend shrimp, hush puppies and onion rings. Two in our group also order broiled fish, trying to have a healthier meal. The fish came with a heavy layer of paprika-based seasoning, completely overpowering the fish. I... More

Chasing good Seafood in Gainesville and so far this place is the best. Dining area is not large and the wait is long, even for take out. Got a pallock fish dinner with hush puppies and 2 sides for $9.99. Too much to eat in one setting and so worth the wait. Fresh and still hot when I got home.

We were out-of-towners stopping in for a late lunch (around 2:00), and people were still coming in as if lunch never ended - we still had a short wait - patrons kept coming, steady traffic, right towards early bird dinner. They have a steady, brisk business. All the staff treat you like they've known you forever. Tammy, great server, sat... More

My wife and I eat here regularly at least two or three times a month. As seniors we eat from the senior menu. Most entree are under $10.00 and include two sides. If you like a low country boil they offer one for about $10.00 that includes shrimp, potatoes, hush puppies, and corn.
