This place is near where the manatees are (in cold weather). It's in a fairly beat up strip mall. Inside is decent, with a fair attempt at New Orleans like decor. The Cajun flavored pollock was good but a small serving was over $20. Most...More

You can't make reservations here so there is often a line waiting to be seated. Generally the wait isn't long and always worth it. Food is best in the area and service is always good. Sellers' Shrimp and hush puppies is my "go to" meal....More

Despite all of the poor yelp reviews, we have eaten there several times and always liked the food. The owner is a Cajun, so if your feelings are hurt easily. best not to get into it with him. Yes he could learn to be more soft spoken but his food up until now has been stellar. If he has a new chef and is screwing up the food then the restaurant will fail fast here in Citrus County. In the Eleven years we have lived here we have seen many many restaurants fail as the stop giving the service, ambiance and the quality and the generous portions that us retirees crave and won't accept less. Truth be told I love the fried oysters which he brings in from New Orleans rather than use those little oysters caught around here. and only wish there were more of them in an order. The price indicates that more of them should be in order. Maybe Jimmy is not used to the size his restaurant has grown to. I and my wife will probably go there for our anniversary dinner (58 Years). And yes we could afford to go to New Orleans for Felix's Fried oysters and soft shelled clams but Sellers does us well when we get the urge for fried oysters!! We do wish we knew when the new restaurant will open and where it will be.
