I needed to find a place to spend two hours to wait for my wife to arrive at the Punta Gorda Airport. This was the perfect place. They had an all you can eat special, so I decided to eat slowly and enjoy the food. There was a choice of All-You-Can-Eat Blue Crab, Shrimp, or mullet. I decided to go... More

Steamed Crabs all you can eat, OK. I was raised in Baltimore county Maryland until I was 66 years old. I have been Blue Crabing and fishing the Chesapeake bay and eating almost everything I catch. Peace River try's, But they don't do a very good job. All I can say it's this or nothing. Crab Soup (no) Crab cakes... More

Four of us decided to try PRS after reading articles & reviews that were very favorable. They were all correct. This place is a gem on the outskirts of Punta Gorda. We were welcomed upon arrival and our waitress was very attentive and prompt. Each evening there are a few specials & also a soup, so we tried the She... More

Fantastic crabs. All different ways. Wish they had soft shell. If you don't like crabs, this isn't the place for you. I would like to see more menu items. Rolls?? Dessert Key Lime Pie was burnt. Not cheap, either. I had the garlic crabs. Hubby had shrimp and grits. Good. Just worried to go now due to the extensive blue-green... More

I always anticipated a fun time when my neighbors called me and said they have fresh crab today. Let's go. Truly an old Florida feeling, out of town with a picnic table setting and brown paper table cloths. A pot filled with crab, potatoes and corn on the cob. If you want to work for your meal get out the... More

Even though this isn't one of your fanciest restaurants it will be one of the ones at the top of our list while we travel. We had a most enjoyable lunch experience in the prices were very reasonable. Service was very friendly and exceptional. We split a pound of fried shrimp which came with french fries. They were fresh and... More

We live in the area and if you want REAL FLORIDA seafood this is where you have to go! All the tourist traps with views serve frozen fried stuff you can get anywhere.

Not only is this the closest seafood restaurant near me, it's the best. Come as you are because this place is a true local joint and very casual. As long as you don't mind the plastic utensils, paper plates and talking bird, you can try anything on the menu, because it's all very good. Steamed little neck clams, blue crab,... More

The Peace River Seafood & Crab Shack has a well deserved high rating on TripAdvisor. We stopped by today after a relaxing day at the beach in Sarasota. We were warmly welcomed and our waitress recognized our need for a few cold beers. This place is very laid back. You can sit inside or outside on picnic tables. We shared... More
