Stopped on a lark driving south on vacation for a few cocktails, and lunch. Sat outside in the back, family style seating, what a great idea, met a really nice couple, and didn't want to leave. Wait staff was friendly, food and bar price were reasonable. We split a grouper sandwich and a shrimp appetizer special. Still talking about it... More

Verry disappointed. Looking forward to fresh gulf shrimp and received frozen shrimp. Lots of batter and hardly any shrimp. Store bought brand even better. Onion rings good if you want to call that dinner.

This is a wonderfully casual, fun place to enjoy live entertainment and have a bite to eat. Their burgers are big and flavorful, and their fish fry is a customer favorite. Their outside seating is family style, we have had a great time meeting new people, listening to the music, and enjoying their outside area at the large round tables.... More

Wife's Birthday. We were camping up the street. Saw the sign decided to celebrate her birthday there. Food was great. A real old Florida place.

We ate outside and enjoyed the eclectic decor and the Peace River. The Foosball was amazing and the service was spotted on. I will definitely be back soon.

If you want to go to the relaxed restaurant/bar that usually has live music than the navigator is for you. The service could be a little faster and the food is just so-so but the atmosphere and the live music make for a wonderful time with friends!

A little way off the beaten path but "WORTH THE JOURNEY"!!! Visit Captain Kirk, take a boat tour, enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I suggest a blackened fish sandwich with a nice cold beer! One of the favorite venues of the late, GREAT singer/songwriter JIM MORRIS.

We come to Punta Gorda at least twice a year and this is always a place we look forward to visiting. The food and beverages are great! The owners, Dennis and Nancy are amazing people. They have done a little "face lift" to the establishment since our last visit. The changes look great. We always came to hear Jim Morris... More

We arrived here hoping to do an airboat ride but unfortunately there were no tours running that day. However, it was hot and we were hungry so we stopped in at the Nav-a-Gator bar and grill and I'm so pleased we did! The food was fantastic as were the friendly staff and the iced pina colada was amazing! The decor... More
