What a great dining experience. Very good food, though a bit pricey, but well worth it. You can arrive either by land or water. Very Olde Florida setting which I think is tops. A must see place to visit and dine. Not very far from Riverside RV Resort either. About 2 miles by road or 1/4 mile be river (Peace... More

We wanted to listen to the singer that was playing tonight, but there was no seating inside. We had to go outside, but could not hear the music. They were short staffed and we had to wait 58 minutes from the time we were seated till the food came. Unacceptable. No napkins on the table and had to ask for... More

Fun spot!  We were there for lunch on a Friday,  but would love to get back there one day for an evening.  Lots of spots outside, some tables right on the sand, stage for live music, a fire pit with muskoka chairs, and could see the lights up in the palm trees.  Looks like it would be a ton of...

Simply put, a beer and burger joint where you can also get other menu items. Many outside tables in a courtyard where you can play "corn hole" buy souvenirs, look at their collection of old outboard motors and a stuffed bison. An Interesting stop for visiting family located near the Peace River where you can also elect a tour of... More

The Nav-A-Gator is a hidden gem. It's a throwback to old Florida right on the Peace River. We go there every time we're in the area. Our waitress, Mona, was fabulous. Great service and food suggestions.

Perfect lunch stop after a boat cruise on the Peace River. Hidden away in old Florida, this restaurant serves delicious seafood dishes. My favorite - coconut shrimp. Nice portion and perfectly cooked. My wife ordered the crispy shrimp appetizer, which was scrumptious and abundant.

We later had our lunch at the grill. Very good & service excellent. I especially liked the rustic look of the place & would like to go back... More

We booked a ride in the air boat tour with Captain Trey. He was a fantastic captain, guide and story teller!! We saw several turtles and alligators while cruising the river. Highly recommended the air boat tour!!

Hand painted walls, floors, ceilings, tables...Have that quirky but cool vibe. Open seating means you end up with strangers but it was fun and interesting. Food was good, large portions. Service was very slow but the place was full. Because the food was really good! Worth finding this place. Go sit out back under the trees with your toes in... More

We winter @ Riverside RV on the Peace River. Lunch @ the Navagator via a short Kayak paddle is always a fun event. Takes only 30 minutes to paddle down. Navagator is a 'Old Florida' experience. If you're close by you should stop. Good service. Last time I was there I had their fried bologna sandwich :) and their homemade... More
