Ate at Phillippi Creek last week, and really enjoyed it. Go early if you don't want to wait for a table. They are very busy, but that should tell you something. Very casual atmosphere, featuring picnic tables and a roll of paper towels at your table. The seafood selections are extensive, and reasonably priced. Really enjoyed the Alligator appetizer, and had some very fresh Grouper for main course. Everyone enjoyed their meal here. Service was friendly and efficient. If you want a great place for seafood with a very casual setting, you won't go wrong with this place. I would definitely recommend.

EAT HERE! We were sat outside next to the "dont feed the alligators" sign. . . I knew we were in for a good meal! We started we had two draft beers-nice and cold. Next we started with clams on a half shell and mozz sticks-cool plating for the mozz sticks in a miniature fry try and the clams came with a side of horseradish, just how I like it. FOr our entrees I had the broiled grouper stuffed with blue crab, shrimp, and scollops with a side of parsley red potatoes and coleslaw. Mt husband ordered blackened chicken fettichini alfredo. These made-to-order meals came out prompt, hot, and amazing! The grouper stuffing was all seafood with minimal bread crumbs as a binder. The chicken had a great char on it and the pats was cooked just right.

We wish we would have known about this place earlier in our trip. The atmosphere is great for all. Families, couples, large groups, etc.

This long-established restaurant continues to thrive because of its good food, good service, unique location and fair prices. In the past year the presentation has also been ratcheted up a notch with the food delivered on trendy white square china platters and French fried appearing in individual wire baskets. No wonder the tables continue to be packed and the parking lot full.

We've eaten here many times over past 15 years. Recent evening with visiting guests was a pleasant surprise. No reservations, but we were promptly seated on a Sunday evening. Five of us had great seafood (lobster, shrimp, oysters, and one had steak) with no complaints. Our server was very pleasant, helpful, and patient. I notice upgrade in quality of tableware/plates and even quality of seafood platter items. Broiled oyster appetizer was excellent. Some even had dessert. Both the huge banana split and the hot apple cobbler got raves. Highly recommended for a family restaurant with nice creekside setting and great fresh Florida seafood! Nice to see that they continue to improve after all these years too.
