After seeing Wahoo Grill billboards for 40 miles while traveling south I started to really crave some good seafood. I looked on Trip Advisor and it said the restaurant closed at 11pm. Yay! I have over an hour to enjoy a nice dinner because boy...More

Good menu with lots of options. Fried green tomatoes were excellent. Fried oysters not so much - too big, too much coating, fries too salty. Grilled fish was good. We’d try it again. Overall better than the franchise chains that dominate. Afternoon Delight dessert was...More

Went with my husband as a stop along our way on a road trip. Relaxed atmosphere, nice outdoor seating. Crab legs were great, so was the fried gator tail. Mac and cheese is a must, it’s really good.

We went to Wahoo with my Dad, who is 90 and hard if hearing. The food was ok, the fish was cooked nicely, but the sauces were more like gravy (too thick). The restaurant is mostly sports bar and VERY loud. The waitress was friendly...More

Woohoo for Wahoo! Everything about this place (well, except for the I-75 traffic noise lol) is fantastic! They’ve got an inviting wrap-around porch/patio that is super dog-friendly (our Pomeranian was even greeted with a fresh water bowl). EVERYONE there (especially Bailea, Steve, and Justine) was...More

Cedar River is likely as good as any around here. I am no fan of Red Lobster and the Northwest Grill has, in my opinion, really deteriorated. Schooners in St. Augustine and Brown Lantern in Live Oak are both excellent for... More

Yes they are open on Mother's Day but unless you have a reservation you will have a very long wait.
