This restaurant has been around a long time. Over the past decade or so I think it has been through a couple of different owners. Current owners seem to have brought back the original food quality and service the place had been known for. I had bacon-wrapped filet mignon with shrimp. The steak was cooked perfectly (medium rare) with great flavor, and the shrimp were jumbo and delicious. My wife also had the filet mignon prepared the same way, with scallops. She loves scallops but rarely gets ones she really enjoys. Not the case here, she loved them.

Our wait for the food was what I would call normal at 20 minutes. Our server was personable, checked with us regularly, and made sure everything was good.

The decor is dated, but this isn't Appleby's or Ruth Chris. This is an old style small town "supper club". I can deal with that as long as I get food and service like this!

Great restaurant for groups; highly recommend reservation for group. They also have a banquet room. Serves everything from fried liver to filet mignon. Save room for a classic dessert or grasshopper to top it all off.

I recently heard that Ced-Rel was taken over under new ownership, and boy does it show. First off, this restaurant has the BEST shrimp in the United States, and I would love to see someone take me up on it. The "Oh my shrimp" are stuffed with real crab, cream cheese, onion, and fried, served with delicious sauces.

Prices here can be a bit high sometimes, but first comes a complimentary tray with veggies, crackers, and a creamy cottage cheese to dip, along with fried gizzards. Salads are also complementary. Then comes the meal. There is nothing I don't love on this menu. All choices of fish are wonderful, steaks are juicy and superb, and specials are great too. This place is a must try! the meal.
