What ever is in season you will get it Fresh here! Fried,grilled or blackened! Most meals come with that good olé Southern Cooking! Fried Okra, cheese grits, Mac cheese,hush puppies, fresh greens or French Fry’s for the kids. Don’t forget the fresh sweet tea!

I don’t understand all the previous reviews complaining about only fried seafood. The entrees allow you to order your seafood as grilled, blackened, fried, etc. CedarRiver always has great portions, cozy and comfy atmosphere, and fair prices. Not fancy but just right. You won’t leave...More

I grew up in Jacksonville FL which is actually the home Cedar River. I remember eating at their locations in Jacksonville many many times as a child. That being said, this Gainesville location is good. I visited there the evening of 2/8/18 with my wife....More

I was a little disappointed. The service was very good, it wasn’t fancy, but comfortable. The food was just so-so. Nice portions and reasonable prices, but it just didn’t appeal to me. We had the senior seafood platter for 2. Plenty of food and came...More
