Fodor's Review

Owner Richard Wahrenberger serves up gems from the sea delivered fresh from his own boats. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner inside this rustic haven, or sit outdoors to watch pelicans, gulls, tarpon, manatees, and the occasional gator play off the dock in the Barron River. Even better, you can chow down on his delectable, sustainable stone crabs—medium, large, jumbo, and colossal based on weight—with clear conscience. After removal of meaty claws, crabs are returned to waters where they grow new ones. Relax over a meal with a beer or wine by the glass, or head for the full liquor Beach Bar, open on weekends. Appetizers run from deep-fried corn to conch, and sandwiches from hot dogs to pulled pork. Big draws, however, remain stone crabs and baskets of smoked mullet, grouper, shrimp, oysters, blue crab, gator, or frogs' legs. Got a cooler? City Seafood wraps for the road, and also ships. Gator and shark-tooth necklaces and cutesy crabby-style tanks, boxers, and tees await your perusal in the gift shop.
