Yum! One of the best fried seafood plates ever eaten! Light crispy batter, fresh seafood and a lot of it! The clam chowder is superb! Service was fast and friendly. I highly recommend and would definitely go back when in Cedar Key again.

Never heard of that salad. Didn't look for it on the menu. You may want to go online and see if their menu is listed, or, give them a call. Sorry, wish I had more info.
