The aroma of frying fish beckons diners toward Sam’s Crystal River Seafood's front door, behind which seafood, pasta, and steak are prepared amid family-friendly environs. The menu unfolds with appetizers such as double-breaded fried green tomatoes, served with house-made ranch dressing, based on the recipe famously eaten by all Wild West cowpokes ($4.49/half, $6.99/full). Shrimp can be ordered fried, broiled, blackened, or boiled, and chefs fill stuffed flounder with crab meat before broiling the fish and sprinkling monterey cheese on top ($13.99). Lobster bites are fried golden brown, providing a simpler way to explore the sea creature’s interior than administering a Myers-Briggs test ($7.49). Betray surf for turf with a clandestine rendezvous with a 12-ounce new york strip steak ($15.99), or opt to lunch on noontime burgers and sandwich fare. Ocean appreciation flourishes within the nautically themed interior, which includes a 50-gallon fish tank and walls festooned with fish replicas and oars.
