Great recommendations. Waze directions got us there - kinda hard to find. Recommendation from waitress (very very firiendly). Started with top neck clams, and stone crab claws. Both great. Dinner selections were grilled royal red shrimp and grouper. All selections were great. Do not expect...More

Order the fried shrimp dinner or one of the fresh fish locally caught, If you like seafood this is the place for you, good service, friendly people. Located on the Crystal River Kingsbay waterfront

Right on the water. Super fresh seafood, and nice service. Very good value. This is basic fresh seafood in a friendly atmosphere.

I like to try out the local eating spots when I visit some place new. This place is next door to where we stayed. It is nothing fancy but the food and service are great

Loved the blue crab chowder and the clam chowder. You can buy it to go so we had it again, and still wanted more

According to the picture I thought we would be able to sit outside (Beautiful Day). They do not have outside tables. Food was good, but we did not get the WOW factor.

They do have outdoor tables, next to the river, you could have your dog with you out there. I have not seen any fur babies inside the dining area.
