In my Florida travels I always spend a night in Tallahassee. I love to eat at Crystal River Seafood. The staff there is most accommodating and the food is great! Very nice selection of dinners and they are reasonably priced.

We started with the stuffed mushrooms, excellent. I had a trio and everything was well prepared. My daughter had the buffalo shrimp dinner and it was absolute perfection. Our guest had the Mahi and it was good but a little dry. Service was a tad slow but the restaurant was slammed so I completely understand.

Walked over to this place due to its close proximity to my hotel. There were actually many restaurants in the area but I wanted seafood on this Friday evening. This place is located right off an exit from I-10. I was dining solo and got seated immediately. Very friendly waitress greeted me and took my drink order. She was back... More

Before I tell you about the food in my heart I believe it tasted even better because of the employees. The waitress gave impeccable service and the man at checkout was nice. All I remember was it was few minutes before closing time and the waitress was a younger lady. I could have made the appetizers my main meal. Green... More

We ate at this restaurant with our two young adult daughters. We ordered several appetizers: 1. fried green tomatoes (a signature dish), which were served with a ranch dressing and were very good, 2. stuffed mushrooms--stuffed with crabmeat and also served with a ranch dressing (another signature dish), which lacked much of any taste, so we were very disappointed in...

Awesome seafood! Fast, friendly service. Best seafood restaurant in Tallahassee. Ask for Mandy, she is hands down the best server around.

Fried clams, fried oysters and stuffed flounder. We like fried southern seafood. Restaurant is unpretentious, booths only that comfortably seat 6 to 8. Good and friendly service, fair prices. Choose this over Red Lobster and you'll have made the right choice.

Fantastic fried pickles, fried green tomatoes, fried corn nuggets!!!! Would have enjoyed a beer but they didn't serve alcohol at the Monroe steer location.

Close to my hotel so I chose this place. Supposedly known for its seafood, but they also have steak and pasta. I wasn't very hungry so I just had an appetizer, the Buffalo Shrimp. Serving was LARGE and shrimp was tasty, Spicy with a little kick to it, but not really hot. HAD to try their homemade key lime pie... More

We love eating at Crystal River. The food is always cooked to order and if there is a problem, the staff make every attempt to make things right. The blue crab claws grilled and fried are always great. They are consistent with their fried shrimp and scallops. My family and I frequent Crystal River on a regular basis. We have... More
