Nice location out back on the deck overlooking the river. My husband had blackened scallops in Alfred sauce. The best he has ever had! I had ribeye. Although beef is not their specialty, it was very tender. The band was very good. Got there at 4 pm and sat right down. By 5 pm there were lines waiting to get... More

We have been eating at Corky Bell's since it was on Ward's Creek. It was great then and it is great now. I don't think you could find a nicer or more professional, yet still friendly, staff even if you hand-picked them yourself. Do yourself and your taste buds a favor and do not miss this great place to eat.... More

I loved this place! We stopped for lunch since it is number 1 in Palatka and we were not disappointed. We had raw oysters at a good price and they were excellent. For lunch we had shrimp with vegetables and we both raved about all of it. If near this place ever, stop by and have a cocktail by the... More

Fish selections were fried and came with hush puppies and 2 sides. I got a very nice side salad for $0.75 instead of one of the sides. Food was cooked well and service was efficient. Batter... More

Don't regret going there, but won't be going back. We sat at the bar and the bartender was pretty inattentive. The food was okay. Met fun people at the bar which made it a better experience.

Love Corky Bell'system and I eat there whenever I am in the area, which unfortunately is only once a year. Great seafood and vegetables. Tried their gator tails and thought they were pretty good. Devin was our waiter and he did a pretty good job, considering they gave him a party of 17 right after we were seated, chocolate cake... More

Went with my husband. Sat by the window and a wonderful view of the river. I had shrimp and grits which were delicious. My husband had fried shrimp which he enjoyed. There's always enough left to take a to go box.

The food at Corky Bells is excellent. The outside, riverfront seating, however is what makes Corky Bells special.
