We went to this establishment in Crystal River for the first time yesterday. It's hard to find good BBQ around here, (and after yesterday's meal) the search continues. We ordered the Three Meat Combo. Consisting of brisket, pulled pork, and wings. All meats were completely tasteless. No smoke flavor or any other kind. It's like a vampire sucked the flavor out of the meat in the kitchen (instead of their blood). I had the Bubba Marley wings. I wanted to try them after these won the Citrus County Wing competition. What a let down. They are a dry rub tasting mostly of salt and not much else. Everything came out to our table at room temperature. Not a hot item on the tray. I can't say I even found a sauce of theirs that was that great. I don't plan on going back.

The Crab Plant

Reviewed By DJB1954

This no frills restaurant serves locally fresh caught seafood. Caught from their own boats. This place is right on the water and the decor reflects that it has been flooded. Furniture is utilitarian and designed to be unaffected when it does flood. The food is good, we had the crab cake dinner. The menu consists mostly of seafood and you can even get frog legs. The food is served on rectangular ceramic plates. The staff is friendly but pay more attention to each other than their customers. I had to go to the bar to get our silverware. We went there on a Tuesday early afternoon and the place was busy. No wait but most tables were full. After we ate we went to the seafood shop that is connected to the restaurant . Got some smoked mullet and they had a selection of fresh caught seafood. The prices are a little steep but well worth it.

After doing a morning kayak in three sisters springs my brother and I decided to grab a bite to eat. Since we're from Massachusetts we didn't know of any local spots until we drove by this place. We decided to give it a try and boy I'm glad we did. It was a Saturday at approximately 11:15 a.m. and when we entered the door we were probably number six in line to wait. It's a decent-sized breakfast place but it was packed. We got seated real quick because we accepted the barstool area. The waitresses were very attentive and within less than 5 minutes we got our coffees and water. As soon as we got them they asked us if we were ready to order.Within less than 10 minutes we got our food delivered to us right off the grill. what I noticed about this place is how fast they cook the food unlike other breakfast places that usually you see your plate sit there for 5 to 10 minutes minimum. The prices are reasonable and the breakfast was good. when I come back down to this area from Massachusetts to go to Crystal springs again this will be my go-to breakfast joint from now on. You will not be disappointed.

After a day of fishing, friends and I stopped here impulsively. The parking lot was quite crowded, which is a good sign. We were seated promptly; our drink orders were taken quicklly. A friend ordered the Crab Cakes and the waitress told her they were probably not the crab cakes she was used to. Instead of lump crab in the cakes, it was shredded crab. My friend then opted for the fish and chips, which turned out to be a very good choice. I had the Snow Crab Legs special. It would have been nice if my order had an accompanying item like fries or cole slaw, but that was not offered. The Snow Crab legs were quite good. The other friend also had the fish and chips as well and pronounced them delicious. We were quite please with everything about Dan's Clam Shack. Will I return?? Absolutely!!!

I will always remember the fantastic salmon salad served at the Highlander Cafe (selected from a Tripadvisor recommendation). My husband had a cauliflower cheese soup and a 'special' panini chicken sandwich with apple butter. Open only for lunch, the service was friendly, incredibly fast and the interior clean and pleasant. A great place to visit while shopping in the Citrus area of Crystal River. Truly a gem!

We have't been here for awhile, but it is a fine dining restaurant & local to us. The waitstaff was attentive, but not overly so. I had duckling with risotto, and creme brulee; husband had escargot, grouper, & an ice cream sundae. The other couple had 5th St. mac & cheese with lots of chicken; he had beef tenderloin, & carrot cake. All excellent.
