Pete, Was curious about Sam St. Johns. I've seen several advertisements and although it's not in TV, it's close enough. What do you think of Captain Bells on 27\441, South of TV? We've been there twice. They serve you very quickly. They must have meals already prepared and just stick them in the oven.

As New Englander's we are spoiled with REAL seafood Restaurants. IMHO my experience in the south is that they are seafood in name only. Usually mostly fried and little really FRESH fish/seafood. We'll be on a quest for the real thing when we get there though. Maybe it does exist.

IMHO GATOR JOE'S is the pits - we took a party of 10 there last spring and no one liked their meal and the service was next to nonexistent.

I bleed Yankee blue and am from New England. The closest thing to a good seafood restaurant here is the Bonefish Grill. They have them in Ocala (route 200 exit and turn left coming from the south) and in Orlando. You can also find an outstanding seafood restaurant under the bridge going to Amelia Island , up in Apalachiacola on the waterfront, and out in Cedar Key. Gator Joes is a level or three below the pits.

As stated in an earlier post we visited Lelas Seafood on Rt 40 in Silver Springs.It has the atmosphere of a real New England Fish House.The place is very clean and the service is wonderful.The food (in MHO)is good but not great.They feature all manners of seafood,they will serve full or half portions as you prefer.The prices are reasonable.It is approx 18 miles from TV.If you want a nice drive thru part of the Ocala Nat. Forest it is a pleasant trip.They do have a special that features Fish,Strip Clams orFried Shrimp,all you can eat 11.95.You will be served on styrofoam with plastic utensils.

I had mentioned earlier that I had eaten at Bonefish in Destin. Sorry about the mistake but it was in Fort Walton Beach. Senior moment. It was very good.

LOL Fort Walton has tons of great seafood restaurants BUT true it is a little far to go.
We like Gator Joes because it is different ,being on a lake with a beach, but too much fried fish. We enjoyed our fish dinners at Stumpknockers. Tried the one on the river and the other one in Inverness.

Crystal River is not that far away. There's always been good seafood spots there.
