We stopped in for a local atmosphere, neat décor, old Florida. The service was a little slow but the food was very good, Such a unique place to eat, would definitely eat there again.

We stopped by on a motorcycle ride, to escape the heat in South Florida in the afternoon. The music was too loud! We had to sit a two different tables for our group of 7 to be accommodated. Part of our group at one table order meals; by the time our waitress took our order quite a bit of time... More

Great food. Coconut shrimp is out of this world. Service was slow. So keeping that in mind; we will visit again with that expectation.

We were out for a drive on a Saturday afternoon and decided to check out Nav-a-Gator's since we had heard it was good. I have to admit, the setting is fun and interesting. Lots of people around or all ages, with boating, music and activities. The food however was extremely disappointing. We had the conch fritters and Big Fish Sandwich... More

Stopped in for lunch last Sunday...the onion rings and sweet potato fries are delicious! The service is great, and the bloody Marys are pretty darned good, too. Very reasonable prices.

Don't be put off by the long drive through residential areas and the dozens of bikes that are probably parked outside the grill. Get out of your car, walk through the door, go outside to a large round table and join whoever s sitting there. You will have a memorable meal (GREAT grouper sandwiches and platters) and will meet some... More

Great drop-in lunch from a private river exploration cruise. Good outdoor picnic table, speedy service, and satisfying fish and chips with beer. If any entertainment it was not within earshot.

First off - go here for the experience and entertainment. The food and drink are secondary. Once you understand that, then enjoy! Went here for a local show, it was a great time! Beautiful Saturday afternoon at the bar and outside, listening to music. Slower service (they were busy! it was understandable!) but strong drinks. Never been told that I... More

We went for lunch and the cruise on the Peace River. Food was good, wait staff was excellent. The cruise was very informative. Saw 2 alligators and tons of birds and wildlife. Was a very pleasant afternoon.
