Seafood Sellers and Cafe

Finally, a reason to go to Crystal River Mall!

Seafood Sellers and Cafe

The best Cajun food I’ve had since leaving Houston.  We had heard good reports about this place from several different people and stopped by there last Tuesday. 

I started with seafood gumbo and forgot to snap a pic.  I was so hungry and it was so good. Full of seafood and white rice–perfect. We’d already started in on our lunch when I remembered to get these photos….

The shrimp and grouper were excellent as was the jambalaya and red beans and rice. I’m pretty picky about my blackening and usually only have it at home because I make my own. Usually it’s a too salty for me at restaurants but this was excellent.  The tomatoes were even fresh and yummy–not those hard plastic type you typically get at restaurants.  And the tarter sauce was incredible. And the hush puppies–the best.  I yeah, I could go on and on and on…

Jimmy, the owner, has his own fishing boats that go out from Madeira Beach. He was also our server and brought out a piece of fresh grouper for us to check out.  You can buy fresh seafood right at the café. 

It was so good that we went back on Saturday for lunch.  And I gobbled up my blackened grouper sandwich and hush puppies before I thought about pictures.  Terry had a deep-fried shrimp po boy and french fries.

 Just writing this has made me hungry.  Jimmy–we’ll be back!
