THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Johnny Leverock's Seafood House Restaurant Review

: The story behind Johnny Leverock’s seafood restaurants is that Leverock operated a service station near St. Petersburg and won an oyster bed in a card game so he opened a raw oyster bar and chowder house. Quality has always been the hallmark, making this chain usually rank a notch above the rest. Specialties include crabmeat with Dijon mayonnaise sauce and salmon Wellington (salmon in Florentine sauce wrapped in a pastry shell and topped with hollandaise). If you’re not ’fraid of fried foods, we recommend Johnny’s Fullhouse Appetizer---a sampling of salmon fritters, crab cake and a half-pound of hand-breaded onion rings.
