“southern seafood at its best”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Great family gathering place. Good food ( mullet,oysters,shrimp,) all fresh and cooked just right. The kids love the hushpuppy with guava jelly. But it wouldnt be complete without zodie's cotten eyed joe.

“It has gotten even better...”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

Wow, I can't believe my last review was sooo long ago. And Zodie has made this place into something Roy Deal would smile from ear to ear when seeing it again. She has added more selections... baked beans we so very much wanted, and boy are they good, especially when pared with one of those great hushpuppies. Sweet tater fries are a hit too.Oh, and the swamp cabbage is to die for, yeap that good. We had our fill of those items on our last trip, plus "naked oysters" on the half shell, fried mullet, a seafood platter and cold boiled shrimp...and salads too. The pogo stick did its thang that nite so we had great food and special entertainment capping off a wonderful nite. The oldies in Perry know how lucky and blessed we are to have Zodie back running things at Deal's World Famous.Oyster House. The food, service, and staff has made this "the" place to eat lunch or supper in Perry....and to start this happy experience you will hear a friendly voice telling you "The Finest People in the World comes through that door" as you arrive inside. And the Best of Florida seafood is yours for the taking!!!...enjoy

“Great local color”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

I was traveling with a cousin from Michigan to meet other relatives and we arranged to meet in Perry. I looked for a good place to have lunch and Deal's seemed like a good idea as opposed to a fast food place. We were all thrilled with the quality and quantity of the food as well as the "local color" atmosphere. I had wanted my cousin to get a view and a "taste" of the "real Florida" and this place did not disappoint. I look for an excuse to go there again.

“Good down home seafood”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We went there twice in one weekend. We went on a Friday night before the FSU football game and then again after the football game. We really enjoyed the place. It did seem like everyone in the place knew each other but our service was great and our food was exceptional for this type of country restaurant. I thought the prices were a little high for the food but they do not serve alcohol so it was my belief that they have to make that up somewhere and food is the only thing they are selling. We were not scared off by the prices and went back a second time. We plan on going back next football season every game weekend.
Please understand this is not a fancy place or even close to that. Oh and the musical entertainment was a lot of fun.
