We ate here 2 years ago and loved the all you can eat crab buffet. On our trip this time we were so looking forward to this inexpensive buffet but the crab was tasteless, watery, grayish and small. I don't know if they'd been frozen...More

Fiddler's was recommended to us by a local business. We made the 30 minute drive from our hotel to check out the Sunday buffet. I only wish I had a larger stomach! There was a salad bar, fried chicken and catfish, shrimp alfredo, a variety...More

The goldfish outside were nice but everything was downhill from there. Restroom wasn't clean and two stalls had no tissue. The food was mediocre and overpriced. Wait staff did a decent job though.

Fiddler's is always a must stop when we're in Steinhatchee fishing. The buffet is AHH-MAZING!! It has any and everything you can think of on there, from seafood, to chicken and prime rib! Definitely worth every penny. The staff there are always super nice.
