We are staying in the area for 6 months and heard many people speak of the Nav-a-Gator and in particular of the Grouper sandwich they are famous for. Well.....after arriving and being seater...we were informed there was no Grouper available...apparently a recent fund raiser was held and the Grouper was used up. We decided on alternative dishes ...he had a... More

Our family has been coming here for nearly 15 years. The quirky and casual atmosphere has always been a big hit with us. It's down home, old Florida at it's best. Traditionally, we ordered the grouper sandwich. Several years ago, we noticed the portions were smaller and the food was just not as good. As a result, we stayed away.... More

Stopped by for lunch after a boat trip. Fun casual local favorite celebrating 20-year anniversary featuring gator strips, and a grouper special. They have a couple of beach games for the kids, and plenty of beverages options for the adults. Recommend if you are in the area.

The food was mediocre. My husband said burger was just ok. I had shrimp basket which was more than enough food. Atmosphere was good. We ate outside and enjoyed playing corn hole and ladder ball while waiting for our food. There was lots of time to await...

New to the area, a friend took us here and said we'd appreciate the atmosphere. He was 100% correct. The service was very friendly, our drinks and food were served quickly. The food was good, this is not fine dining, but the food was good. Within moments of sitting down at an outside table we were enjoying music from a... More

We stopped in to take the cruise yesterday and decided that lunch was also a good idea. If you haven't at least stopped by here to meet all the cool folks, then make a point to try it out. The river cruise was fun and the Captain was very knowledgeable. The food was great as well. We'll go back for... More

I took some friends on a leisurely boat trip up the Peace River to the Nav-A-Gator. This is one of those iconic local places that when you are in the area you need to experience. While you can go by car, the best way to experience it is to go by boat. We saw some of old Florida, a couple... More

Try the BIG fish sandwich. It is really good and can feed a small army! It is what I order when I visit the Nav-A- Gator. Love the atmosphere.

This is a great place to experience old Florida, or real Florida. My husband had the special hamburger of the day and I had a salad with chicken breast. We both though the qualify was very good. The reason we went there was to rent a canoe. The Peace River and Deep Creek are right there and the scenery is... More

There is nothing fancy about this place but that is the ambiance of this "Old Florida " style restaurant/motel/marina. Anytime I am on the west coast I have to go there especially when Jim Morris is playing. The food is mediocre and reminds me of a fish house, mostly fired but fresh. I always found the service very friendly and... More
