Corky Bell's is located in East Palatka on the St. Johns river. The restaurant is nice. I love the multi-leveled deck. It's the perfect place to eat dinner in the Fall or Spring.If you want good local seafood Corky Bell's is the place.

Would like your food fried or heavily fried? That's the philosophy here. If its good baked, then its better fried.

I can think of nothing negative to say about this place. Normally we go there for Sunday Dinner and take our guests there and have never been disappointed. Excellent food with a good variety, large portions at a reasonable price. A most scenic place to eat.

Friends told me about this place. What a hidden gem. Indoor and outdoor seating, great seafood selections. We loved the fried oyster platter and the best frozen margaritas we've had in a long time.

Great atmosphere, fun and easy vibe, excellent seafood. Watching the sun go donw over the river! Unbeatable! The live music was a delight; Those Two Guys, jazz, brothers, sax, horn, harmonica, personality! Thoroughly enjoyable evening!

Located on Gators Landing in East Palatka, the seafood here is cooked to perfection. The seafood is excellently prepared, the atmosphere is quaint and the staff is friendly. I have not come across a bad item on this menu. Will definitely be returning here.
