This is probably one of the most "off-the-beaten-path" places in all of Florida. It's located near the very end of a long and windy road that wends its way through some of the neatest scenery in the entire state, that offers wonderful views of beautiful salt marshes and hammocks along the "nature coast". We stumbled upon it by accident, when we saw a road sign that said "Ozello" and it pointed westward off of busy US Hwy 19 halfway between Homosassa and Crystal River. It's a somewhat rustic seafood place, not fancy, but cozy and warm inside. We decided to have a beer and an appetizer (blue crab cake stuffed won tons) at the bar on our visit. They also have liquor at the bar, and the won ton appetizer was quite good. The staff was very friendly, and the restaurant and restrooms were clean. Outside, they have a tiki bar and a deck where you can sit and eat your food, but it was pretty chilly the day we visited, so the tiki bar was closed. All of the prices on the menu end with .93 (i.e., 93 cents), so we had to ask what this was all about. The waitress informed us that it's because Peck's is located 9.3 miles off of Hwy 19, and those who don't know it's so far out there on this long and windy road, that many never find it and head back to "civilization" when they think the road leads to a dead end. We intend to go back here during the warmer months, when hopefully the tiki bar will be open. Truly a cool place, and still an authentic piece of Old Florida from days gone by.
