The Freezer Tiki Bar, Homosassa, FL

An Old Florida Hidden Gem

The Freezer a Tiki Bar located on The Homosassa River. It was a funky place situated in an old fish freezer. The menu is very limited with not much on it besides good old American potato chips, chips & salsa, smoked mullet dip, peal & eat shrimp, blue crabs & Maine lobster. There is plenty of beer, both on tap & in bottles, not to forget the bucket of beer too. It’s basically in the in rough type of restaurant that you would find back in New England. At this place you just place your order with the bartender & the food is brought to the table, don’t forget to give your name or else you won’t be getting your food. I was a wee bit of surprise to find out that the half dozen blue crabs that I actually order were streamed whole crabs served in a beer carton of all things with a mallet to smash them & a plastic fork. I do enjoy picking at crabs with my hands after I get them open rather than using a fork to be polite. It’s basically a hand on food. They did have wee bit of a kick with them with, something was added to the Old Bay seasoning, I could taste it.
