Returning home from our Ft. Myers Beach long weekend I found this wonderful restaurant. I had seen it many times traveling thru this area and this time we decided to have an early dinner here. It's OLD Florida style - with fresh fish daily and they have a fish market as well. Quirky and casual. This place is indeed a... More

I've been there a few times and everything I have ordered is delicious. My latest is the steamed seafood special. Huge pile of succulent oysters, sweet clams, and jumbo shrimp with a touch of Old Bay and corn and potatoe. Dress casually order a beer or two and hunker down and get dirty ....the only way to eat FRESH seafood.... More

After spending the day at the Arcadia Rodeo, several friends and myself were on our way back to Naples and looking for a place to get some dinner. One of my companions had spotted what he described as "a cute-looking little place" on the way up, so we were on the lookout on our return trip. Turned out to be... More

If you love local seafood, prepared well, This the place! Local fishermen bring their catch here every day. Local blue crab and shrimp, in addition to real grouper, and wonderful house made smoked mullet dip. The servers and staff are friendly and know their seafood. Prepare to wait a bit for a table, but the wait is worth it! Probably... More

This was our first trip to Peace River Seafood. We were craving stone crabs, and there aren't many places to find them in this area. So, we picked a Friday lunchtime to try the place. The servers were very cheerful and pleasant. Right off the bat we were told that they were out of stone crabs. So then we asked... More

If you like quaint, friendly, and fresh seafood, this is the place for you. The waitress Kaitlyn is very nice, very good and will teach you the right way to eat the blue crabs. We both had the all you can eat blue crab special. They were so sweet and delicious. We will definitely go back. I would like to... More

Chose this place from reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. We 're from Virginia and visiting family in Port Charlotte and we were a party of 11 for dinner. The staff was so nice and accomodating, putting us out on the deck with two big tables. Food was just delicious, fresh seafood, fish stew, cheeseburger (for our non seafood lover... More

As my title says, this is just a fun place with quite good food. I have had their Crab soup which I would characterize as Very Good. And oddly enough I had a wonderful and HUGE cheeseburger there. Not too far outside of Punta Gorda - so if you are looking for a change give it a try.

This very quaint old building looks like an old shack from the outside but don't let this put you off. The food and service are very good and the majority of the seafood is locaaly freshly caught.

Prices look high at first glance, but quantities are good and all the fod is good. Basically a house converted to a restaurant. Definitely a place to go. Entertainment on some nites.
