“Never even made it to a table!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

After waiting 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged our presence, a waitress finally asked us how many were in our party. We told her party of four, then we waited another ten minutes before walking out. We were the only people waiting to be seated and it was 7:00 on a Saturday night. No one would even make eye contact with us the whole time. What made it worse is that my 18 month old was hungry and can't wait 1/2 an hour just to be seated. That's why we chose this restaurant, because it wasn't very crowded. Wish I could have that 25 minutes of my life back!

“Oysters good”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a lunch place, seems popular with the locals. Plate is full of french fries but the fried oysters were plump and delicious. Prices excellent. Place feels a little old and dirty, busy and noisy. All in all, oysters good! Everything else ordinary.

“Great food”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

We have been coming to Amelia Island for about 16 years. Cedar River is one of the places we always look forward to eating at. It has never disappointed us. Good food and lots of it for a really good price. This year we took our dog with us. We stayed at the Hampton Inn and every night we ordered take-out from Cedar River. We had the fried shrimp, fried flounder and burgers. The burgers leave alot to be desired. I quess that is what you get for ordering burgers from a seafood restaurant. They were not to bad. The shrimp and flounder were wonderful. They gave us everything we could need for take-out. We will surely be returning on our next trip.

“Very good crab cakes”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

This restaurant was a little crowded, but the quality and price of the food made up for it. We were very pleased with each of the menu items ordered in our party, and were pleased with the reasonable prices at a restaurant located less than a block from the beach.

“Local color, excellent food”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great small local restaurant serving large portions of affordable fresh seafood. As another reviewer commented, the service can be challenging - just too few staff to serve, clean tables, and check out guest. I frequent this spot when on the "island", food quality is consistent. Highly recommend the fried fish and shrimp
