Another visit with party of 10. Almost Impossible to get one table for 10 or two tables close enough to keep party together. Chaotic search, not enough tables and no staff to assist. Hard working staff cleaning tables and delivering food. Somehow it works, some tempers flare, but the food and beer is that good to make it worthwhile.

I ate there last Thursday around 4:00. I tried going Tuesday at 7:00 but there was no place to sit and a 30 minute wait to order at the counter. This is a self serve place and it's not air conditioned unless you get lucky and find a table tucked up under the second story freezer inside near the bar.... More

Born and raised in this town and LOVE what they did with the Freezer. If I am ever looking for a good batch of peel and eats, Im at The Freezer. Clam chowder, blue crabs, P&Es, and cold beer...cant beat it!

Was told by several friends to eat here and I wasn't disappointed. I had the Mussels and shrimp and they were both excellent. They only accept cash but they do have an atm out front. I will definitely eat here again.

Local atmosphere, casual and gusty, order in line, eat inside or outside, on the water, limited menu, all fresh and delicious.

The shrimp is delicious, I'll give you that, but having to wait in line to order then take what they are able to give you (drinks/soup) of that order then attempt to find a non-existent vacant table just takes all of the fun out of this place. Try standing with a drink, a spoon and some chowder & crackers in... More

If you want real Florida Shrimp that is steamed to perfection this is your place. Crabs, and great Clam chouder in a toasted bread bowl with garlic crusted top. Yummy stuff. No need to dress up its casual, you can even bring you puppies along. Such a relaxed atmosphere you will forget about the world around you. Great Cedar Key... More

Been to the freezer a number of times over the years and the food is consistently excellent. Currently they don't have blue crabs, which is a shame as they were excellent too. The place is very low scale in appearance, but that's part of the charm too.

Description
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.
