“Really good stonecrab!”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

I love rough little eateries like this. You order in a little room near the entrance, where you can see all the seafood in display cases. Get a bottle of beer from the cooler by the cash register and find a spot on the deck right next to the water. The stonecrab claws were excellent. My husband had the fish basket (grouper), which was very good. My fried softshell crab was overcooked, so I didn't enjoy it as much. Service was reasonably fast and friendly.

“Always the First Stop in Everglades City!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Before even checking in to our lodging, we always make a beeline for City Seafood and the amazing stone crab claws (mind you, the rest of the seafood is also wonderful, but it's the crab claws we crave). We sit outside on the dock looking over the river while enjoying the succulent claws washed down with an ice-cold Corona and realize it doesn't get any better than that. No matter how long or short our stay, we make a visit to City Seafood every single day. In addition to the wonderful food, the owner Richard, is a wonderful person and an amazing raconteur, who can keep you fascinated for hours with his stories.
We were also delighted to see the addition of a full service outdoor bar complete with live music on Sunday afternoons.

“Simply splendid!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This place is simple, but divine. You can have breakfast orlunch, it closes at 6 p.m. All seafood dishes are as fresh as can be. We went their twice during our stay in Everglades City and tried the stonecrab claws (awesome), shrimp wrap and shrimp basket, soft shell shrimp sandwich and onion rings for our kids. Everything was absolutely delicious. Service is incredibly friendly and helpful and explains every dish to you in detail ifyou are notan expert in Florida seafood (as we were). Simply a must!

“Don't judge a book by it's cover”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Went to the Everglades for a flat bottom boat tour, but had time for lunch before the tour, tour check-in reccommended City Seafood, they were right on. The place doesn't look like much from the outside but the food and the view inside made up for the outside. Between the 4 of us we had shrimp, soft-shell crab and grouper, everything tasted like it was just caught and prepared to our liking. The set-up is place your order, wait to be called and find a seat. The system works and the result is a great informal meal of the freshest seafood we have had in a while. We will return if we ever get to the Everglades again.
