“Hearts of Palm Salad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

This is a very average seafood restaurant with dated decor. However, they offer one of the most unusual salads I have ever seen and it's pretty darn good. The hearts of palm salad is a bed of iceberg lettuce topped with peaches, candied pecans, pineapple, hearts of palm, topped with two scoops of peanut ice cream. I'm told the hearts of palm and the peanuts for the ice cream are sourced locally. Although I wished they had used fresh fruit rather than canned, this salad is surprisingly delicious and very unique. I also sampled the locally sourced clams and coconut shrimp, they were tasty but nothing that exceeded expectation.

“Appetizer Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Tonight we had an appetizer dinner. We like this type of dinner when we are vacationing in an area because we can sample several types of local dishes. We share so we can sample more.

Tonight we tried four different appetizers and a dessert. I've included photos to show what we had.

Our first appetizer was the Oyster Cocktail. There was a healthy dozen of oysters. They are Cedar Key Oysters. They were delicious!!!!

Next, we had the 1/4 lb Peel & Eat shrimp. They are served chilled. The flavor was very good but they were over cooked. ;(

Next, the Cedar Key steamed clams. They were absolutely delicious!!!

Next, Mr. Moe's smoked mullet dip. I'm not a fan of a fishy tasting fish. I personally didn't care for it. But my husband likes this type of flavor & he says it was very good.

To top off the perfect appetizer dinner we had a piece of the Key Lime Pie. It was very good. It was the frozen type. Delicious!!!

The restaurant was very clean & our waitress was very polite, happy & personable. She was very attentive to our needs. Her name is Donna. THANK YOU, Donna for a wonderful evening!!!!!!!

When we come back to this area we definitely would come back to Sea Breeze.

“A tourist trap and canned food smorgasbord.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Where do I begin? The food was not fresh, everything was out of a can or fried. The waitress was not attentive and the dirty old carpet smelled like the barracks of a submarine. Stay away!

“Not a mint with our check”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We had a horrible experience at this place. First, our buffalo shrimp appetizer was under done. The shrimp was still raw. Then, the grouper sandwiches were greasy and bland. But, the final kicker came with our check. A roach ran out of the check holder and onto our table. I don't recommend the place to anyone.
