October 2013 - In The Spotlight

The Mullet Hole Tavern

In March 2013, Mike Dias, who has had a successful career in the food and beverage/hospitality industry, decided it was time to take all the knowledge and ideas he had gathered over the years into action by opening up his own restaurant. Dias partnered with Timothy Nee and Jennifer Tellier to open The Mullet Hole Tavern.


Dias knew he wanted to be in the downtown Crystal River area so it was a perfect fit to place the restaurant in the old Livery Stable located in Heritage Village. The location was previously home to Café on the Avenue.

Mike, Tim and Jennifer had concepts and ideas but what they needed was an Executive Chef and they knew exactly who they wanted - Chef Randy Fixman who, among other places, was previously at the Plantation. Mike knew Randy would have the same desire to bring fresh, local seafood and unique dishes to the people of Citrus County.

After some renovations and upgrades The Mullet Hole Tavern was officially open for business on July 1. Mike and the crew have decorated the Tavern with nostalgic photographs of Crystal River's history. Local artist Ryan Jenkins created an array of copper fish sculptures for the restaurant including a large copper mullet which adorns a waterfall wall in the center of the restaurant.
Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday The Mullet Hole Tavern features fresh, local seafood. Executive Chef Randy Fixman prides himself on only using local produce and fresh just-caught seafood. Chances are the entrée on your plate was caught within the past 24 hours by a local fishing outfit.   Upscale ambiance, amazing food, relaxing music and five-star service will complete your experience at The Mullet Hole Tavern.
Come as you are for lunch or dinner, but reservations on the weekend are strongly recommended.
