There were a number of people waiting to be seated when we entered and added our names to the wait list. I hoped it was a good sign and it was. If you do not want fried seafood this is the wrong place for you....More

Service was decent. Scallops were pretty good. Restaurant was very busy. Only waited five minutes to seat my party of eight.

The food is good, the portions are large. Mostly everything is fried here, but if you are looking for tasty fried seafood, this is a good spot!

Gator tail appetizer was ok. Blackened cobia was ok, cheese grits were underseasoned, but with s&p were ok. $20 total and the service (Ashley) were the best things about the visit. Hushpuppies were some of the worst I've ever eaten. Bland cornmeal balls.

We visited Cedar River on a Saturday evening with family. We arrived about 6:15pm and were seated promptly. The restaurant was busy, but not overcrowded. The waitress came and took our drink and food orders at the same time. With our drinks, we received crackers...More
