It is a pleasant surprise to find a good restaurant in such a small town as Suwannee.  The village itself is not only tiny, it is at the end of the road in a lightly populated area of Florida.

In spite of those drawbacks, plenty of people find their way here to enjoy the great seafood and ambiance.

Salt Creek Restaurant, Suwannee, Florida

As you would expect from a place in a fishing village, seafood is their specialty.  Their appetizers include clam chowder and smoked mullet dip, Gulf shrimp, chicken wings, and crab fingers. 

There are also gator bites for the diehard Florida Crackers or adventurous tourist who find their way here.

You can enjoy several salad selections before digging into your main meal. 

These entrees feature a seafood combo with shrimp, crab, oysters, mullet, grouper, catfish, crab fingers, and scallops.

The Fisherman's Platter is loaded with choices featured also in the combo and can be enjoyed with grouper, mullet, or catfish.

They will prepare your food any way you like, but fried stuff here is a real treat.  They even have pasta if you insist and a very good burger. 

There is also a neat little inside bar and an outside tiki bar overlooking the creek.
