The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year; it was established to protect the last 20 miles of the historic Suwannee River and the coastal islands that line the Gulf. The gulf sturgeon, manatee and all other marine creatures benefit from the high water quality. The Suwannee is one of the largest...more
You can experience both on a small island!! This is not the place for a hurried visit. Kayak or canoe through the bird-filled salt marshes and mangrove swamps. Wander about the queit town poking your head into one corner or another. Walk along the beaches and simply slow down.more
To experience the environment closer, a kayak is ideal. There are several places to rent a boat, get maps and tide tables or to book a guided tour. There is also the Island Hopper, a small passenger boat that will take ou out to the keys or simply on a tour of the area. The Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge encompasses the 12 outer islands....more

Very small. Servers aren't real attentive to customers coming in if they are busy, so you may have to wait, blocking the door,until you can be seated. Seafood combo was o.k. We thought the price was $3 less until we got the bill. Server wasn't real knowledgeable about the menu. We weren't happy. Didn't go back.more
Another one on the second floor with a view of the water from one side of the restaurant. Wait staff needs a lesson in manners. We were told to "sit anywhere" and when picked a table for 4 as far away from the loud music as we could get, waitress came over and informed us they usually "save these larger tables for larger parties." When we asked her...more
Another one on the 2nd floor with a great view of the water. Enclosed porch puts you even closer if you can get a table there. C rab bisque, made with real, fresh crab & cream. So thick you could eat with a fork! Also fried small scallops were extemely well done with a very light batter. Special of the day was an oyster poboy that looked yummy...more
Another one on the second floor with a great view of the water. Outside dining is available if the weather cooperates. Small, only about 10 tables inside. Only did breakfast, but that was good. From what we observed, locals were getting the french toast and it looked good. Stay away from the biscuits! Mine was about 2" square, 1/2" high, very...more
Great atmosphere...2nd floor with great view of water/boats, etc. Great clams (fried strips, chowder and roasted). When very, very busy, service can be slow, but just relax & enjoy the view! Fried clam strips....fresh, local clams with just the bare minimum of breading & done just perfectly. Basket brought to table with lots of containers of...more
Great way to get around. Reasonable prices. Have your cash ready. One thing I don't like is I gave these people my business three times on my two trips to Cedar Key, and I got a lot of extraneous commentary every single time. The man who works there acts like a Bill O'Reilly type, rough and gruff and mocking and condescending to me. I just want to...more

This has to be the very best place to look for a fish. At least the pelicans seem to think so.
They sit out on this fishing shack all day long.
When it is dinnertime they dive down and get a fish.
