We came here on recommendation of our airboat rode captain and were not disappointed. Choices were a bit limited (seasonal) but that was fine. We had mullet dip, 5lbs of shrimp and a bunch of garlic bread and were completely satisfied. Typically, i think you...More

Loved The Freezer. Got a tip from our river guide that it was the place to go for fresh seafood. I had the clam chowder in a bread bowl and smoked salmon dip and they were fabulous. It would be a great place to go...More

I don't know why people think this is such a great place to eat. It's boiled shrimp and beer! Although it is "waterfront" dining, it is actually located at the end of a canal. There is not a spectacular view, just an industrial looking building...More

We love The Freezer. The shrimp were delicious & way more than we could eat. The clam chowder in a bread bowl was very good too.... The service is the worst ever. The guy at the bar is very rude. You have to wait in...More

This is Homosassa at its best! A freezer for storing the local seafood catch decades ago has been converted to a "joint" where the best steamed shrimp around can be found. It's not fancy - a bar, tables and chairs inside and out and colorful...More

Restaurant/Bar in an old seafood freezer on the water where boats bring in their fresh catch. Amazing shrimp, fish dip and stone crabs. A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.
