About
Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.

Two families with 6 kids under 12 downed 8lb shrimp and 3lb of snow crab legs. So good. Coleslaw was good too. Friendly staff.

We took friends of ours to The Freezer for lunch today. We had lunch outside under Florida's cloudless blue sky while a gentile breeze was blowing, a hungry heron nearby was waiting for a handout and we as friends enjoyed it all. We each had...a cup of that tasty clam chowder soup followed by the awesome...peel & eat shrimp that The Freezer is noted for. Yum-eee! Jamie, our server, was attentive, efficient and up-beat.More

I got the shrimp and while tasty they were not that great and very messy. The place is too crowded interior. And very noisy. The shrimp were perfectly cooked and quite fresh. I don't love peeling my own but they were good overall. Know what...to expect and you'll enjoy.More

Great food and value. Has the feel of old Florida. The Smoked Fish deep was best I've had. The shrimp and mussels were wonderful as well.

We arrived by boat and we were a little skeptical. All the locals told us that we can't miss out and that we just have to eat here. Well, we are so glad we listened! You won't be disappointed. Delish! The best crab I have...ever eaten. My table also enjoyed the fresh steamed shrimp and they had amazing Smoked Mullet Fish Spread. Literally everyone's meal was devoured and everyone raved about the food! We will definitely be going back. Cash only.More

Very disappointed NO masks by staff. Steamed shrimp were good, crab so-so. The interaction with staff was surly at best. It didn’t appear they appreciated us being there!

They’re steamed but you’ll need to check direct to find out availability as they’re local caught.
