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.

Rustic joint with a limited menu. I never heard of a bar restaurant not offering hamburgers. They do have shrimp for a good price and I would go back just for that. The clam chowder was pretty good too. Unfortunately the beer was warm. Several...people in our group ordered the crab legs but were still hungry and ended buying sub sandwiches at Publix afterwards.More

a dump with gratitude food. If you are looking for 5 star white table Cloths with an extensive menu. This is not you place! If you want really really good seafood at excellent prices then this IS you place. it is completely self seating and...the menu is on the wall. You wait in line and to order. they do the bring the food to you. we sat outside in under a tiki hut They only have beer and wine and soda for beverages but a wide variety of beer!More

The specialty is their shrimp. There are only a handful of other things on the menu….like Stone Crab Claws when in season. But once you have their shrimp, you won’t want to order anything else anyway. The unique setting makes it a local favorite and...a great place to take friends when in town. Beer and wine available as well.More

Unique atmosphere…a freezer. Prices were reasonable and portion sizes were filling. Salmon spread was to die for. We got there early and seating was plentiful . A return trip is in the future !

Really love this place. Don't go at the Prime lunch or dinner hour or you'll find yourself in a madhouse. 2Pm lunch or 4Pm dinner and you'll be OK. CASH ONLY!!! Best steamed shrimp ever. Staff is hurried and harried but always polite. We go...for the Shrimp but they have a lot on the menu and it changes, except for shrimp.More

Had a great meal of shrimp and chowder. Service is a bit slow but that is due to the long lines of people waiting to enjoy the food.

First time in 3 visits to get a seat. Some of the cheapest beer prices I’ve ever seen in Florida, $10 for a bucket of beer. Tim’s a great bartender and amazing to watch him with his no-nonsense hustle! The lines were long and it...was worth the wait. Best smoked Mullet I’ve have in quite some time.More

Really had high hopes for this restaurant based on friends input but it seemed like a "thing to do". Very, very busy at lunchtime, long line to place food order, then a long wait for the food. I ordered the small shrimp peel-n-eat, it actually...came hot with ice cubes on top - know what happens when the ice melts - the shrimp become waterlogged. Food comes in a styrofoam togo container, that's okay I guess, just wasn't expecting that. The shrimp flavor wasn't to my liking but, based on the crowd, I'm in the minority there. I will say the New York style clam chowder is excellent, among the best I've ever eaten. The bowl size comes in a bread bowl, if I ever go back, that will be my lunch.More

This place is about the food. Perfectly cooked shrimp. Some of the best we have had. Really good stone crabs. Very casual, long line to order food and not much atmosphere but the food makes up for it.

We go here every year when we are in town. The food in awesome. The atmosphere is great. This year, I know COVID, the server was a guy who was hooting and hollering, rude and mean like a junk yard dog. Not sure why they...put up with him. I’m we will definitely be back next year. Hopefully he’s moved on!More

Incredibly fresh, delicious shrimp and great atmosphere off of the Homosassa River - tucked away, it is a a hidden treasure that is well-loved by locals.

Hmm, I did not see any pets there. There is outdoor seating, so that is probably your best bet.
