Restaurant details
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We reviewed Bradley's last September & have been back many times since. However, the last 2 visits were not good. About a month ago we were there & ordered the broiled flounder as usual. It was not flaky, but was mushy and unappetizing, so the waitress took it back & replaced with another order. It was the same. We didn't make a big deal of it, but when she asked if the second order was better, we had to tell her no. She insisted we not be charged for our meals although we told her that was not necessary. Yesterday we decided to try it again & unfortunately, the fish was so mushy that we couldn't finish. It seems like they are grilling the fish (too long) instead of broiling it. We don't like to be complainers, so we said nothing this time & have just decided not to go there again - or at least not for fish. We have tried some of the other things & they were pretty good, but mostly order the broiled flounder because we are trying to eat somewhat healthfully. Hopefully, this will change.

These guys have the best fried shrimp! Had the best gator tail here, too. Down home hospitality. Quick service, good prices, great value. Awesome cole slaw & hushpuppies. Plenty of variety for everyone's taste. Good for family dining. Parking can get a bit tight and sometimes you can't get into the parking lot, vehicles are even parked along the road! Best time to get in is between the lunch and dinner crowds. They have daily specials, too. I have never had a bad meal here.

The atmosphere is not great, but the seafood is!!!!! Do not mistake this comment, the restaurant was very clean, but it was not on the water or extravangantly decorated. However, once you taste the food, nothing else will matter. We had the gator tail app, which was tasty and juicy. The shrimp were large with a light breading with just enough pepper. My wife loves whole catfish, which she actually orders small (to avoid a muddy taste). These were small enough to have great flavor, but lots of meat on the bone! It is a local favorite of my in-laws who live in Palatka, locals know!

We never would have found Bradley's if it weren't for a local physical therapist's suggestion. The food is good, basic, Southern style. Especially enjoy the flounder. They only have baked potatoes in the evening though & seem to always offer a complimentary cup of soup with dinner. Lunch sides are mostly fried items with the exception of salads & some vegetables. Have never tried desserts, but they always sound good.

Spent a few days in Palatka, and ate here on Friday night. We ordered the shrimp and the shrimp and flounder dinners and the food and the service was so good we returned on Saturday to do it again! The meal starts with a complimentary bowl of the soup of the day. Clam chowder on Friday, and vegetable on Saturday. The shrimp is fried to perfection, and the sides were good too. And the only place I know to get tea this good is at my mother's house! We are Floridians and travel the state always looking for good home cooked food. The food and atmosphere at Bradley's is exactly what we look for.
