Dog friendly!!!

Great casual place for a burger or fish sandwich. Atmosphere is "Old Florida", nothing fancy but clean and fun. The waitress got us a spot on the covered portion of the patio in the shade for our 70 lb lab. Staff brought him a bowl of water and some biscuits, very friendly folks and concerned with... read more

Had "surf and turf," a combination of Grouper and steak. The Grilled Grouper was small and over cooked; the steak was full of fat and grissile. Also, the crab cakes were the worst we've ever had, couldn't taste any crab at all, just filler. $50 wasted! If you go for the experience, suggest you have only beer!

Not a fancy place but comfortable. I call it old Florida hospitality. Very popular restaurant, located on Lake Suzy. Good fish dinners and fish sandwiches. Most people had either the fish sandwich or the dinner. I had the Conch Fritters appetizer and onion wings. Both were very good. Service was efficient and friendly.

Stopped for lunch on a rainy day not very busy had a burger and fries with ice tea asked for artificial sweetener for the ice tea the waitress new right away she was not serving the local drink. Food was good and price was reasonable. Like all the dollar bills tacked on the wall all signed and autographed.

Our party of 8 had lunch here, outside on a picnic table. We started with gater bites and conch fritters which were both very good. The fish and chips were excellent and the envy of those who ordered the blackened grouper. Not that there was anything wrong with the grouper, it just couldn't compare to the fish and chips. The...

It's great if your on the boat tour but if not you kinda get pushed aside as for as being waited on. If no boat tour is scheduled it's fine. Really good grouper sandwich.

We never miss several visits to Nav-a-gator when in Punta Gorda. The food is good, with a list of daily specials. The drink prices are fair and the wait staff is great. If you are not familiar with the place, don't pass it up. It looks like a "dive" from outside, but it is great. Live music on weekends, with... More

We have a couple of musician friends who play here (Jim Morris and Sunny Jim White) but since we live out of state we had never been. The bar was nothing I expected but everything I hoped for in s cool Florida bar. There is inside seating but if the weather is nice you can sit outside to listen to... More

The atmosphere was quiet when we were here and that's just what we needed on a Friday after a long work week!! We had the grouper sandwich and it was fabulous. Our waitress Tia took great care of us and kept us pleasantly amused! It's not always as quiet as it was today here and I'm sure the atmosphere is... More
