I am not a picky eater at all, but the mullet here was extremely fishy and I couldn't eat it. The side order of "redskin potatoes" was one small lonely potato! Perhaps the other fish on the menu was good, but the prices were high. I watched one of the servers sweep the floor, and then go right up to... More

Over priced for the quantity of food 1 star quality Waitress not friendly Food wasn't good. If you like a meal for $$$$$$. Eating out of a plastic basket with plastic ware & leaving hungry this is the place for you

We read the Peace River reviews, and based on a recommendation from a local, we went for dinner. I would say many got it right...backwards--yes; homey--yes; no linens--yes; expensive for what you get--yes. Service was just okay; the food was okay but we did not feel it warranted the prices they charge. I am sure we won't return and we... More

If you are searching for linen tablecloths and fine silverware, look elsewhere! If, on the other hand, you only are looking for great seafood, stop in regularly, as I do! I have enjoyed chowder from Boston to the Rio Grande. Their seafood chowder is excellent! Friday's, I often enjoy their Fried Mullet. An important point about their mullet is that... More

The restaurant was small and homey. The staff was friendly and welcoming. You have to get there early to get the stone crabs (we missed out) There breaded shrimp was wonderful. The mallet to crack the crabs is handy.

A friend told us about this place and we happened to stumble upon it when we were out exploring. Hidden away a bit with the large oak trees draped in Spanish moss, we weren't sure about it. We went inside to eat because it was chilly for Florida. There was a nice crackling fire going in the fireplace and it... More

Highly recommended by friends so our group of eight gave it a try. Glad we did. Not fancy- plastic tableware arrives in a plastic bowl! Eat inside or outside at picnic tables. Grouper sandwich- grilled, fried, blackened- outstanding. Great fries. Maryland crabs and seafood stews all very good. Try it, you'll like it.

Eat Maryland style blue crab by the dozen with indoor and outdoor seating, pleasant, fast wait staff, decent prices and rustic setting. They open early, 11AM, and close at 7:30PM. This time I had the shrimp creole and Chris had half a dozen blue crabs. They serve beer and wine as well. We took home a slice of key lime... More

There is NO WAY the positive reviews could be real. On the reviews I read here and a recent expose' on the Food Network, we gave it a try. My grouper sandwich consisted of a thin pice of frozen, over cooked grouper. It was dunked in plain flour and deep fried. Zero spices, not even a hint of salt. It... More
