We stopped at Fiddler's on our way home from Tallahassee. You have to drive off the highway for a bit, but it is TOTALLY worth it. The view was fantastic. We sat on the outside patio because we had our dog with us. This was...More

We ate here and the food was very good. They have a seafood buffet on Fridays that we would love to try. We would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Nothing to brag about. It took for ever to get the chowder at the salad bar. The fish was good. I have had better. Don't think I would go back.

The restaurant is on stilts over the water. Busy with locals is a good sign. Seafood gumbo was amazing as was the grouper and as was Amber. If we are ever this way again, we'll be back.

Not a lot of restaurants in this area, but this place was a great find. Excellent fried seafood platter, with more than enough to share between 2 hungry people. The views are ok, nothing spectacular, but the service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is...More

Friendly staff, Dinners were good. Nice menu selection, seafood and beef. Buffet looks scrumptious but no one can eat that much. Ate dinner there one night plus two breakfasts. Breakfast is hot, good and very reasonable.
