That's all I ever get, so maybe my review is not a fair one. My mother and I went to Annie's the most during our month in Cedar Key, then Ken's. Both are excellent options. At Ken's we sometimes get an older waitress - I...More

So, what can I say about this place. The view was incredible! The waitress was such a nice woman. They are desperately understaffed. The poor woman (who was elderly) had to wait on like 13 tables. We never got a refill on drinks, the coffee...More

We are a DINER, serving breakfast and lunch daily. Friday and Saturday evenings we open late 11pm to 2am serving breakfast and sandwiches. We are not a seafood restaurant, there are already plenty of those on the Island. We are a DINER serving your typical breakfast and lunch menu, however, we do offer some seafood items during lunch. We are priced right and the portions are plentiful and the food is fresh. We have a 50's theme with classic cars and music.
