My friends and I drove quite a way to eat at the Freezer Tiki Bar. I love to eat shrimp and I had heard they had great steamed shrimp. I was NOT disappointed. It was incredible!!! Their clam chowder was really good as well. They only take cash so be prepared! It's a very casual atmosphere...very laid back place. I'd... More

Simply "The Best" seafood you will ever get for the price in Florida, perhaps the country. Consistently delicious, no frills, fun atmosphere. Go on a Wednesday and try the added steak special. I go twice a month religiously now.

We have gone to the Freezer many times since it opened and have never had a disappointing meal. Simple place, our order was Steamed Shrimp to go. They had run out of the mullet dip. So sad. We relaxed by the water waiting for our food and enjoyed watching the boats come and go.

When I visit my mom in Florida, I have to go to the Freezer! Its situated in an old warehouse. I don't even think there's a sign on the building. There is no reservations. First come, first served. You go to the bar and place your order. They'll give you your drinks and then tell them where you are sitting.... More

The Freezer is the ultimate hole in the wall dive bar! You have to stand in line to order food, then fight for your own table, the staff is kind of rude, they run out of food a lot, and the place is cash only! However, if you are looking for a laid back time with some KILLER steamed peel... More

A bit off the beaten track but well worth the drive. The steamed shrimp is so good! They have different foods available during the week. Wing day, steak day. But they are known for their fresh sea food. Tiki hut/bar/and very casual dining atmosphere.

If you want taste an not frills, this is the place! Order at the bar and fresh off the boat seafood will be brought to your table. The restaurant is actually a decommissioned freezer that is associated with the in service fish market. Bit of a challenge to find but worth it. Limited menue.

Order at the bar. Expect quick service and steaming hot shrimp at reasonable price. Seating outside near small canal, on enclosed deck, or inside where it's cooler. No frills place with laid back atmosphere.

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.
