Still Great

Had lunch again today after a morning of kayaking with friends. The staff was great. They apologized that it took them a couple of minutes to be able to accommodate our party of 9. It was 1:30, so they were still busy with lunch. This is a very casual place. WE always sit at the covered... read more

Excellent food in quaint old style Florida house. Limited seating but worth every minutes wait. Shecrab soup is fantastic. Reasonably priced, good service, great time..

Peace River Seafood, is an OLD HOUSE which has been converted to a very nice Family run Seafood House. The seafood is all Local and a lot of it is caught by the same young men, that are your waiters in the Evening. If you are looking for that special place for a Romantic Evening, this is not the place,... More

Took our friends to Peace River Seafood ~ we were there last year ~ love the atmosphere ~ loved our food ~ Bull Bay Stew, lobster bits, a pound of shrimp! Loved being served on real plates! They have remodeled and the waitstaff is beyond efficient! If you love seafood, put this on your list!

We were really looking forward to some great Florida seafood when we stopped here for lunch. I ordered the gator gumbo (based on reviews here), but was sorely disappointed. First, at $16.95, it is outrageously overpriced for what I was served. It was billed as having gator as well as other shellfish. I only found a silver dollar sized piece... More

We usually get here a few times a year, most of the time with friends that we want to show great local restaurants. We generally sit out side. The service is always fast and fun. Food is always great. Some of the friends we have been here with are fish lovers and rave about the place. there is a fish... More

If you want fresh seafood, there's no place like here. The owner's husband is a Captain and daily harvests from the Harbor and Gulf. I have been having crabs there for ten years now. They have added a deck and remodeled and the place is even better.

Very pricey....food is nothing special...over priced. Styrofoam plates, flimsy plastic utensils and paper towel napkins, a rustic little house converted to a restaurant. Family operated biz with very loud help, loud voices which were very distracting, waitress spoke very quickly continually returning with very little time passing, to take the order (first time there), seemed to be in a hurry...

We have eaten a few times at this Peace River Seafood and have loved every time! The crab cant get any fresher and the oysters are out of this world. The ambience is fantastic with it being an old house and deck outside to dine on. No need to dress up just come hungry and you surely wont be let... More

We ordered all you can eat Garlic Clusters, the experience was fun but, I would probably not get them again..... too much work!!) The servers were very attentive, sweet tea was the best I have ever had. They have a parrot on the front porch who keeps you entertained and they definitely treat everyone like family. You should give it... More
