“Worst meal I ever had”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Went to Fiddlers last night for dinner. There were 8 of us and we all had something different, all disgusting. The seafood gumbo was inedible. The marinara sauce that came with the mozzarella sticks tasted like dirt. The fish dip tasted like mayonnaise with some fake fish flavor. The grilled shrimp on a stick was the only edible thing while being extremely salty.and the grits were okay. Prices were average but way too expensive for what you get. We have never been to Steinhatchee before and love the quaint fishing town it is but from now on will go to the grocery store and cook at our vacation rental. Don't waste your money at Fiddlers.

“Tried it hated it”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We heard so much about this restaurant so we tried it. The food was substandard but high priced and the service was slow and very uninterested.

“Great place in a small Florida town”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Good, consistent food. The staff is helpful and the owners circulate talking with the patrons. The owner even gave us some location tips for scallops. Always a great place to eat in steinhatchee.

“Breakfast review”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Breakfast was good and the place was tidy. Did not try for dinner. The locals seemed to flock there in the a.m.
