Great food, cold beer, good prices. Cash only and a bit of a challenge to find but really worth the effort

They charged us $10 each to cook the fish we brought in. With that came lukewarm and mushy french fries, bland cole slaw, upcharge for grits with cheese. All the tables but one were dirty when we got there, and there was only one other couple in the place. The Bonoffee pie is overated for sure. Don't bother, We did... More

This also goes by the name the Freezer. It is great for shrimp and the clam chowder bowl and several other seafood dishes.

A buddy convinced me to go to Homosassa ,specifically at the Cedar Fish and Oyster Company. The doors open at 11:30. Folks get in line to line up for the ordering. No table service. One orders both beer and food. Hint: Order a bucket of five beers ($10). The steamed shrimp is manna from heaven, hot, tasty with melted butter... More

Just got back from a quick trip to Homosassa and our visit to "The Freezer" was one of the highlights of our week. If you are looking for a nice place with a waiter to meet your every need this is not the place for you. You wait in line to order food and beer, they take your name and... More

Pressed for time after a manatee tour, our group of 8 popped in for a quick bite while throwing caution to the wind. The stone crab were served warm with butter (definitely better cold with mustard sauce), but they were cheap, fresh, and tasty nonetheless. The beer was cheap and cold and came in buckets and the clam chowder was... More

This was my second adventure at this off the beaten path fish house that from the outside, you might be intimidated to enter; it doesn't look much like a dining establishment but it is always full of hungry seafood lovers. The steamed shrimp, smoked mullet and fish dip are some signature items. The beer is cheap and cold, and the... More
