“Yummy Shrimp!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

Awesome shrimp!! A jewel of a place with a relaxing atmosphere on weekdays. The weekends are uncomfortably crowded.

“Great place for real people”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

If you require A/C, linen napkins and traditional wait staff, don't bother with The Freezer. But if you like a fan-cooled, funky, laid-back atmosphere with friendly folks and terrific shrimp and ice-cold beer, this is a "don't miss" location.

Be sure to have a great GPS or damn good instructions to find it but it is well-worth the effort. This is the way Florida used to be and thank God, it still exists in declining numbers.
