My husband got the snow king crab legs (one of his favorite meals) and loved them. I wanted the alligator (one of my favorite meals) and after some research this was the only place in the area that served it. We called in an order and my husband left to pick it up. But the restaurant called back a few... More

Aside from one quiet family in the corner, every patron in the place was a single diner--even me, technically, as I was there alone to pick up a meal to take back to the condo for the family. "We're all alone in the universe," says the atmosphere of this place. Kinda like a good diner, you get the sense that... More

Cedar River Seafood has a good list of items on it's menu. The waitress were friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a good number of tables and service was fast. I tried the combination of fried shrimp and oysters. They were good and I had a good choice of sides.

I didn't want to leave the island without having some fried shrimp! The kids enjoyed their meal and the shrimp was good and did not disappoint.

Great food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. This is the place where locals choose to eat. Quiet, non touristy dining room.

This was the only place we ate on our entire trip that was so awful that we couldn't even eat our meal. We left after a few bites. The portion sizes were huge, but the food isn't even close to fresh. The fish was soaked in grease, the shrimp had absolutely no flavor, and the sides were awful. This is... More

We had driven 16 hours and just wanted to get a carry-out and get to the house we had rented. The service was quick. The food was very good (green beans were awesome). Prices about Applebee's or similar.we would go back
