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.

No AC when I was there for a late lunch but doors were open and fans going. It was very warm. Servers were nice. They were offering all... More

I found this restaurant through reviews on trip advisor and it's a find. Don't be out of that it is on the side of a fairly busy road. This a a real local casual lunch place with really fresh fish and seafood literally caught out the back. My husband had two blue crabs that where the best he had ever... More

This was simply the best meal we had while in Punta Gorda. Our crabs were perfect (we are from VA and eat Blue Crabs all the time so, we were skeptical but we were blown away). The crabs were large, perfectly seasoned and cooked - yum! We also had steamed shrimp which was plump, juicy and delicious! We were seated... More

Very casual-old Florida style restaurant. Have been to this restaurant several times & never disappointed! Great shell fish especially blue crab-all seafood fresh and large portions. HUGE hamburgers for non-seafood people. Service extremely friendly.

I really appreciate this restaurant offering crab. I just didn't feel like cracking one open to get the luscious meat, even though it's my favorite food. Fortunately, crab cakes are on the menu and they are wonderful! I was served 2 huge cakes that were very rich and included so much crab! I couldn't eat everything, I had to take... More
