“Only If-----”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

You like a place that looks dirty, is crowded, loud, and seems to draw those under 35 who love to drink, otherwise save yourself the drive. We really looked forward to eating here and were shocked at finding what we did. First of all, yes they have seafood, but it doesn't come in standard dinners that most people go out for. I walked up to the window, yes, you read read that right, and asked what came with the shrimp dinner. I was told shrimp. I could purchase a cup of slaw and some garlic bread if I wanted. The same held true for the other seafood they offered. When we were there, they were cooking rib eye steaks outside on a grill. My husband ordered one of the steaks that did come with red potatoes and corn on the cob. When he heard it was going to be about an hour wait to get the steak, thank God, we left. I'm sure the seafood is good, and the steak looked like it would have been Ok, but it's sure not the type of place I wanted to eat dinner at. Had it been a few years ago when going out for dinner was peeling shrimp, eating dip, and drinking beer, it would have been fine I'm sure. Just know what you're getting into before you enter the address into your GPS, and believe me, you'll need a GPS to find this place.

“Our day at The Freezer”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

It took a couple of our Canadian friends to make us aware of this gem of a place. Would have never found it without our GPS. Great seafood and fantastic people. Made new friends just sitting there peeling that great shrimp and drinking beer. We live 80 miles south of the restaurant but surely will go back time and again. Reminds us of "old" Florida.

“Funky, funky, fun in a old world Homosassa way.”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

If you looking for the local's place, this is it. Drive to it or come by your boat. Somewhat limited menus but consistently good seafood and(wed-steak night ) excellent local red ale. Expect a crowded and boisterous group of people just having fun. All at a reasonable price.
