My husband and I both had lobster lasagna last night. I also had the New England clam chowder. Had wanted to try the lobster lasagna for a long time. Was disappointed when it arrived cold, but the manager took it back and it arrived hot. Just outstanding. Service was a little slow, but it was pretty busy so that was... More

At first didn't know it was a restaurant but my in laws (who are locals) took us here for lunch and we enjoyed it. My husband got the gator bites appetizer and said they were pretty good - the lobster roll that my father in law had was not quite what he expected but overall a nice enough place for... More

Beautiful evening and sat outside. The view is a parking lot, but service and food were both great. Special was fish and chips with shrimp. Yummy. Key lime creme brule for dessert was a great finish. Will defiantly go back.

We were very surprised to find they were open on Christmas day. We had Mountain Grouper &24.99 and Chicken Florentine $14.99, both specials. The potatoes and garlic biscuits were very tasty. We felt they were overpriced. There was a lot of mashed potatoes and very little fish. Only a couple pieces of broccoli. The chicken was also small and a... More

The broccoli had a special spice on it that I've never tasted but was great. Walter have grouper basket came with plenty of food. And peanut butter pie to... More

My wife and I were recommended by a friend to eat at the Cedar Reef Fish Camp. It's conveniently located on Tamiami Trail which is a main drag through Florida. It's located in a shopping mall in a mall adjacent to a Home Depot so we were a little suspect. Glad we did. It's fairly small but cozy. We were... More

This is a casual, strip-mall restaurant with a comfortable ambiance. We ordered a special that was listed on their blackboard. Wow - very good, with a generous portion that was enough for us to share. We eyed everyone's plates within eye-shot, & everything looked delicious. We will definitely come back!

I'm giving this a two because the waitress was friendly. We stopped in here after reading the reviews on Yelp. What a disappointment! The clam strips were soggy and tasted like they'd come out of a box, then been microwaved - no better than I'd expect from a supermarket brand. Oysters on the half shell were the most tasteless I've... More
