OK. You have to know what you're getting into here. Chicken Ed's is a true seafood shack -- as authentic as anything you'll find in the Florida Keys. You order through a screened window, then wait for your food and dine at very basic, painted picnic tables (many with umbrellas). I discovered this place on my last trip to Dewey and kicked myself for not finding it earlier! My sister and I dropped in on our way out of town and both of us had the fried clam platter. Greaseless, delicious clams served with wonderfully fresh corn-on-the-cob (dripping with butter), really tasty cole slaw and a so-so roll.
Yes, there were bikers sitting next to us (very polite and nice guys) and yes, I had to shoo some flies away (heck, we're outdoors). But on a nice day or evening, you couldn't ask for a better beach shack experience. Not super cheap, but not ridiculously expensive either ($9.75 for fried clam platter with 2 sides and roll). If it's really hot or raining, there is a small indoor dining room. Come with sand on your feet and a craving for seafood or fried chicken and and you can't go wrong.
