“Simply magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

A very wide choice of fresh seafood... Dive into the typical atmosphere of the old South and treat yourself with great Floridian dishes and of course key lime pie.
This small completely wooden restaurant, built on the water has an incredible view on the everglades national park, once there you will just forget everything around you!

City seafood provides quality,tasty fresh seafood in unique shack setting. Friendly, efficient service in this Everglades city gem. Worth a detour - add in an airboat tour for perfect combo.

“Nice Water View. Average Food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

City Seafood is a nice place to sit on the water. It has nice views and lots of air boat traffic to watch. I think it's a great place for a beer but the food is average at best. Its a bit under seasoned. Most of the menu is fried. The trash cans need a cleaning. They smelled really bad and are close to the tables. I would give them a 2nd chance. I rate them as average. Not horrible but nothing special.

“Original Florida at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

The menu was outstanding too many choices. The prices were great and the portions were great. Luckily the restaurant I wanted to go to was closed for the season we ended up at City Seafood. If you want that Old Florida atmosphere this is it. Large portions Great view of the water and picnic Tables. It dosen't get much better.

“Fried Shrimp”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Day trip to Everglades City would not be complete without a stop at City Seafood. A typical SWFlorida seafood shack on the water, the atmosphere is extremely casual, with wooden benches and views of the water. We celebrated the 4th of July with our two friends. We all consumed the fried shrimp basket, complete with sweet potato fries and a couple of Coronas. The shrimp were not disguised by thick layer of breading, but instead, more like a tempura. The fries were nice and crispy and the Coronas cold , out of the ice chest. While watching the boats and air boats go by, we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.
