I had the Myakka Slew Shrimp Creole and wasn't too impressed. My wife had She-Crab and the Shrimp and crab cakes. The soup was good but the shrimp and crab cakes were excellent. I wish I would have tried the crabs. Lots of people had ordered them and they looked great and were plentiful. I would stick with the fish,... More

My daughter, granddaughter, and I were out for a drive on a Saturday afternoon and we felt like some good seafood. Headed to Peace River and what a joy. We had lobster bites and live music. Made for an enjoyable afternoon! I would do it again very soon.

Four of us went to the Peace River Seafood because every time we drove by the parking lot was packed. Peace River Seafood is "Old Florida" -- what you see is what you get. The picnic table outdoor seating, shared with other patrons, was engaging and fun. The food was outstanding. I had the "Gator Gumbo" and found the spicy... More

For those who have grown up on Maryland Crabs ... what a treat to find this south Florida option for those of us who miss that treat.

Amazing, we spoke with Larry, the manager, his passion for seafood was amazing. If they can't catch it they don't have it that day. With that attitude it is the freshest seafood you will find anywhere. They have a fleet of fishing boats that catch the seafood that they sell. The crab we at were swimming that morning. Amazing!!! The... More

We stopped based on a TV show Florida on a Tank full. The food was fresh, well prepared, and the presentation was great. Jamie our server did a wonderful job. She was friendly, and attentive. Larry, the manager stopped by a couple of times to check on our food and service. Larry is a great ambassador for the restaurant.

The location is a little hard to find. It is a old house with a large side porch / deck and a dirt / gravel drive / parking lot circling the building. The staff was friendly and helpful. Don't wear good clothes that you don't want to get crab on! And, plan plenty of time to enjoy a lengthy meal.... More
