Great crabs, great service, comfy surroundings

Lately this is the only place we have found blue crabs in Charlotte County so we drove a half an hour to get here and we were delightfully surprised. The restaurant is surrounded by beautiful shade trees and even though the temp's outside were in the low 90's, we chose to sit outside on the porch... read more

Raised in Venice, FL and enjoying seafood all my life, I was disappointed int this place. It is small, it has picnic tables for service, and if you don't get there early they run out of sea food. It is a snow birds place, thinking they are getting real southern seafood. It isn't so, at least to this Florida Boy.... More

Both meals--Steamed shrimp with crabcake and Grilled Grouper--were good-sized portions and very flavorful. Thank you for a great Florida experience.

Nothing fancy, but, they have some great deals. All you can eat Blue Crab, 100 clams etc. My wife loves the Key Lime pie and She Crab soup.We drive 25 miles to eat here and, to us, it's well worth it.

I have lived in Charlotte County for 20 years and never got around to experiencing Peace River Seafood. I was expecting better. My son and I both ordered the Blackened Mahi Sandwich. The fish was clearly fresh, but there was so little seasoning on it I could barely taste it. I asked the waitress if I had received the right... More

Arrived late on a Friday afternoon. They close at 7:30 in the off-season, stop steaming crabs at 7. We got there at 6:55. No problem! They steamed a bucket for my wife, one for me, and then brought out REFILLS of both, unasked, since the kitchen was closing. We could barely finish our two buckets, they gladly packaged up the...

I have had Maryland style steamed crabs here three times and all were excellent. We ate there the first time and the crabs came with corn on the cob and red potatoes. They also offer all you can eat mixed male and female crabs for $30.00. We are from Md. and love this place which is a converted cracker house... More

Had a delicious, fresh seafood platter and the staff was very helpful! The fresh oysters were fun to shuck ourselves. Little different served this way but if you have any trouble, the helpful staff will step up and shuck for you. The peel and eat shrimp were perfectly cooked and the baby neck clams were not over steamed. Still moist... More
