A diamond in the rough so to speak. Great atmosphere with live music on the deck. The food had some amazing flavors and the portions were awesome. We didnt make it for the blue crab which was dissapointing but it seemed to be the popular choice for all the customers. The staff all around were... read more

Over priced, especially for yesterday's crabs. Maybe it's because we went early in the day but only about half of the crabs were fresh cooked mixed with yesterday's rewarmed. Almost 50 dollars a dozen for large and most were mediums at best. Next time we'll go to a local seafood market and cook them, considering they're 15 dollars a dozen... More

Read about this place before we came to Florida, lived up to its name! Only thing was the website must have been out of date because the all you can eat crabs were a little more then it said on the site. It was an experience we all will remember, the live music and the service were great! My son... More

If you are looking for a nice Southern breeze by the koi pond with a musician providing the acoustics, you need to come here after April 8th Ina Thursday.. The She Crab soup is heavenly!!! Now, it's time to eat the main course! I won't be disappointed, I'm sure!

We loved the atmosphere of this old time authentic Florida crab shack! Food was great and the service had a genuine hometown friendly feel! We will go back for sure!

Every time we drove by the restaurant it was always packed with vehicles. Gave it a try and was very disappointed. Menu very limited. If it hadn't been for it being Friday I would have gotten the cheeseburger. Won't go back.

I am sorry your dining experience was unsatisfactory. I would like to encourage you to please try us again, I would personally make sure you will have a positive experience. Our menu is limited and simple, I apologize for that, we are just a small little place that prefers quality over quantity. More

During the 3 months we were here we've probably eaten here 5 times and brought seafood home to cook 3 times. Always excellent!

VERY limited old piece of FL. VERY limited menu. Fish sandwich for $20 was on the small side and came with plastic utensils. Décor by some would be called eclectic but to me it was just beyond junky. Service was OK but was told it would be a 45 minute weight but ended up being almost 2 hours. A tourist... More

Being from MN, we've never had real fresh seafood. There are no words to describe the taste. When we are on vacation, we try to find unique places to stay and eat. Peace River definitely fit the bill. When we arrived we were seated immediately. It was about 4:45 p.m. When we left, however, the entire porch was filled with... More

Called mgr. Larry Corbin at 5pm and asked the wait time for a table for 5. He said 5 min. inside and 8 min outside. We arrived by 5:15 and waited for a table until after 6:30 (still no table). Spoke to an arrogant Larry Corbin several times and he really didn't care. They were very busy and he really... More
