On our way to the west coast of Florida we made a pit stop. At first I thought the food was expensive for the location. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We had a grouper sandwich that consisted of a large filet that was twice as big as the bun. We also had the crab cakes... More

Came here for dinner based on the TA reviews. We both ordered the mahi sandwich. It was very fresh and very tasty. The corn on the cob was crispy not mushy and the red potato was great. The staff are all young people who were extremely friendly and accommodating. For us the only down side were the prices. We don't... More

If you haven't visited Peace River Seafood in Punta Gorda you need to jump in your car and head over! They are located on US17. We had late lunch there yesterday and it was beyond good! We were greeted promptly by Bobbi our server who took our drink orders and brought a complementary smoked mullet spread and crackers for us... More

Delicious fresh crabs, true size jumbo scrimp, Florida lobster, gator and all the best trimmings....corn and new potatoes! This old style Florida Cracker House is the perfect atmosphere on the banks of the Peace River to enjoy simply prepared, delicious seafood. The tables are covered with newspaper. The wooden hammers used to crack the crabs are already on the tables... More

If you are looking for fancy, keep driving - if you are looking for authentic, non-chain, fresh off the boat local seafood, this is your place. We passed PRS on our way to Naples - small converted house, seemingly in the middle of nowhere (because we came from inland on 17, actually only a mile or so off of 75),... More

We had dinner here with family. After reading the reviews I was looking forward to traditional Florida seafood and especially the steamed crabs. The restaurant has an old fashioned charm about it reminding me of the many such places that existed in Florida in times past. We were greeted by a friendly waitress as we entered and sat inside under... More

We were visiting PG for our annual fishing trip and had to come back here to eat. The Blue Crab clusters in the garlic was delicious, lobster bites were fantastic and so were the lobsters! Fantastic service and our server was on her game with quick drink orders and refills. Highly recommend this great food!

This is a small seafood house on Duncan Rd and they specialize in steamed crabs. So order the steamed crabs. Crabs are priced as other restaurants are in the area which can seem expensive but are the average cost for steamed blue crabs. They are steamed Maryland Style with crab seasonings and rock salt. We ordered a dozen of the... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night, had a good meal with drinks and even bought a pint of the awesome smoked mullet dip to bring home. The brown haired waitress with a blonde streak took our bank card, added an additional $20 charge and did not provide us with the itemized bill. We signed it giving her... More

If you like fresh crabs and don't mind paying, you might like this place. I chose the crab cakes--such a disappointment. Flat as a pancake, same consistency as a pancake and burnt. No seasoning. Served with hard, tasteless red potatoes and a small corn on the cob which I think had been frozen. Best thing I had was the iced... More
