Fiddler's is always a must stop when we're in Steinhatchee fishing. The buffet is AHH-MAZING!! It has any and everything you can think of on there, from seafood, to chicken and prime rib! Definitely worth every penny. The staff there are always super nice.

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.
