We are from New England so believe we know great seafood but Little River Seafood takes the cake...the crabcake...as theirs are the best ever. Their other fresh seafood is also superior. They also sell a fantastic key lime pie. Their staff is friendly and eager to please.

I don't pick crabs......ok crazy, right? Little River makes the best crab cakes....yum. Their fish is always fresh and fantastic. If you like to buy crabs and do them yourself, buy early, they sell out.....that ought to tell you something. Customer service is great, hate when they close for the season. Remember - you take the fish home to cook.

Seriously, we buy these crab cakes by the dozen, take them home to MD, cook them up and savor every bite. Some make it to the freezer, but they don't stay for long. They sell a lot of seafood here. If you see something you like, buy it quick because it won't be around for long.

The seafood in the cases looked fresh, but we came for the crabs. We were hoping to buy some live crabs that we could take home and steam, but they do not sell... More

This is not a restaurant but rather a seafood market. They provide primarily crab and oysters and are only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in season. Seafood is fresh and high quality.

The seafood sold here appears to be a mix of local, in-season fish, oysters and crabs and other seafood from various places that are not local. It's only open on Friday-Sunday and seems to have weekenders and daytrippers as its targeted customers. I've only been in 2-3 times because it struck me as having big city prices. Why would anyone...

This is not a restaurant!! But always good fresh local seafood!! We have been getting crabcakes and fresh fish from here for years and will always continue! There are only weekend hours but if you want to pick up something fresh and delicious, this is your place!
