Nav-a-gator is an eccentric, fun, casual place for a meal. Do not be in a hurry when you come to dine here! All the food is made from scratch to order, but is well worth the wait! The coconut shrimp with the pina colada dipping sauce is to die for, and the fried chicken is the best I've had at... More

Stopped down to catch Paul Rousch, and wound up catching some great fish! Fish sandwich and fish dip (and blackened fish salad) were all excellent, and the outdoor seating and stage a great time. Only downside is the lack of seating (we weren't aware it's largely bring your own chair -- and our rental car didn't come with them anyway),... More

We arrived by boat to find an incredibly tacky restaurant with a small amount of inside tables and numerous outside tables that you need to be prepared to share with others. Service is painfully slow as is food preparation so be prepared to spend at least 2 hours for this dining experience. The crab cakes were actually pretty good as... More

Went to hear music and have lunch. This place is so simple and fun. Good music and great red fish sandwiches. Picnic tables on a sandy lawn surrounded by old shanty buildings that house a gift shop and a maritime museum. Also schedule kayak tours and air boat rides on the Peace River.

Nice place with a good selection. Although they did run out of fries they substituted tater tots. We had good service. Good restaurant food tasted amazing just nothing spectacular!

Stopped by on a whim with some friends. Had some apps and drinks. Stayed much longer than expected because the music Five and Dime was outstanding. Food was good, prices reasonable, staff very friendly and everyone was singing along and having a great time. Not the fanciest place in town but lots of fun.

This defiantly a casual eatery. Out side picnic tables some with shade. Way to find look off the right on Kings Hwy for billboard. This is jewel in disguise. Don't go away when u see it or u will miss out. I had the Grouper Sandwich. This Sandwich has more Grouper than bun Also it was the BIGGEST in size... More

Stopped by here for first time with family and a friend. Restaurant/bar right on the Peace River serving basic bar fare with an extensive beer menu on tap and in bottles. We split an order of nachos and ordered a few pitchers of brew. Seating inside and outside but we chose outside since it was a nice sunny afternoon. They... More

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.
