A group of us (fishing trip) went there for dinner. It was crowded, so the wait was not too bad... however, well worth it. The food was great! Large portions and cooked right. And reasonably priced. The inside is a very laid back, relaxing feel. A place to take the family, or to go for a drink with friends. If... More

We arrived into Steinhatchee on a Friday evening and went directly to Fiddlers. The buffet looked great! We were not very hungry so we ordered off the menu instead - grouper - it was wonderful! Next time we will do the buffet though. Live music and a friendly crowd of locals. It was a perfect start to a weekend getaway.

This restaurant wasn't bad, but it certainly wan't good either. I don't eat seafood, so I didn't think it was worth it to do the buffet, but those at my table that did get the buffet were not impressed. It was a fight for crab legs that apparently weren't even that good. It took them forever to bring them out... More

Steinhatchee doesn't have much to offer in the way of restaurants. The best advise that I can give about Fiddler's is, DON'T GO THERE. The food was awful. When you wait for 45 minutes after your order has been placed and the server brings you the wrong thing and the argues with you, it's no a good time. I asked... More

The wait is usually about a hour or longer . If you walk to the dinning room there are always lots of empty tables. There are very few places to eat over there so you have to come back. Sometimes the food is great and sometimes not so good. The greeters don't seem to give a damn, But the wait... More

This restaurant is located at pelican point inn. It's the best place to eat in steinhatchee. The seafood buffet on the weekend is great and the staff has been super nice to our group. We had a great breakfast each morning also, thanks to Bessie.

Friday night they have a seafood buffet that is over the top. Everything was delicious and the crab just keeps on coming. The location is on the river but not much of a view. We also had burgers and a grouper sandwhich for lunch one day and were very pleased. The service is great and the staff very friendly. I... More
