The Freezer is a cash only water front bar/ restaurant. You can watch the shrimp landed off the boats and into the steamer, it's that fresh. For a special treat, try the chowder.👍👍👍

VERY casual,Florida waterside shrimp and beer kinda place. Come, chill out and have some very good boiled shrimp and cheap, cold beer. Bring your patience on a weekend night, cause you are not the only one that likes cheap cold beer and good boiled shrimp....More

What a place, food is unbelievable, I had a steak, wife had shrimp, so good. Getting a table is a little bazaar, joint is so laid back, so causal, right on the water. A real local experience in Homosassa FL. Go experience this little treasure.

Great chowder. We ordered a cup but next time we'll get a bowl. Also ordered the 1.5# shrimp and split it between us. VERY good. Kind of strange way to order. Stand in line like a Deli, pay and get a little strip of paper...More

If not for the way the restaurant is set up, it would be an easy rating of Excellent. You go in, and stand around waiting for a table, which you grab yourself (no one there from the restaurant to assist). Then you get in line...More

The food is great, fresh, and local. Beer is cheap. It was super crowded when we went, so we had to stand around for a bit before we found a table. But overall fantastic.

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.
