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

My husband loved his large Blue Crabs with Old Bay seasoning! Our neighbors Mussels looked good. My crabcake sandwich was so full of filler it squished out the side of the bun when I ate it. I expected lump crabmeat with little filler from a seafood shop and restaurant, but I was wrong. I probably would have mentioned it if... More

My wife and I had lunch at the Peace River Seafood Shack today and the experience was enjoyable, but uneven. The service was great! Our waitress, Caitlyn(?) was friendly, efficient and very knowledgeable about the offerings. My wife grew up on Maryland crabs and has definite ideas about what constitutes good crab. She ordered the crab cakes (always a dicey... More

Quaint 'old Florida' style seafood restaurant often offering all you can eat crab dinners. The seafood is good and the atmosphere is definitely casual, not toney. Prices moderately high. But, the little known secret is that they also have their own fish market with fresh catch and smoked fish products. The fresh fish selection and quality is much better than... More

Peace River Seafood is very popular here in Punta Gorda. We have only been there twice. About a year ago we went for dinner and had a very good meal. This week we went again for dinner, taking our adult son. Kind of disappointing. Wife and son had Grouper and Mahi respectively. Both apparently locally caught but neither was completely... More

From the minute we walked in, greeted right away, less than a minute at the table drink order was taken and specials explained. Food arrived in minutes after ordering, huge portions, friendly staff. Homemade Key lime pie.
