We felt unwelcome from the time you stepped into the place. A waitress started with us and was very rude...someone else took over and she was pleasant thank goodness. We did not know what to order some patrons helped. It was not great .

I visited here twice in the last two weeks. Atmosphere is very casual and has a down-home feeling where you know there is no question the seafood is fresh. If you love crabs, this is the place to go. They definitely know how to cook...More

THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO! Love their fresh crab cakes and large steamed shrimp with baby red potatoes & ear of corn! Music on the deck is great addition. We have been going there for the last 7 years!

There are a lot of good eating places to the west of I-75 in Punta Gorda, but there's one place you've gotta go that is east of the interstate. Head east/northeast from I-75 on 17 a short ways then look for this Old Florida favorite...More

After reading other reviews, I was disappointed. This restaurant is very small, extremely busy, has a limited menu selection and seating. Our waitress screamed instead of talking to her customers due to a noise. The food was very good but we had a long wait.

While blue crabs are abundant in FL most places have not learned how to cook them. Peace River has mastered it! First place i go when arriving in town. Larry keeps the place running well and all the girls are professional n friendly servers!

This is what I think of when I want seafood. A house with porches built unto it. The food was superb. It was very fresh and while we were there we saw them unloading the fresh catch of the day. Do not miss this place.

This place merits 5 stars in many ways; I only diminish because it was understaffed, so wait for our food was slow, and also because a grouper sandwich at lunch was $20, which seems steep. Excellent food, and those with big crab pots were digging...More

Went here with family. Just looks like a shack on the side of the road, but what a great place. We all had different orders and everyone loved what they had. Everyone had homemade key lime pie for dessert. Yum. Great service, great food and...More

Sorry for the late info: Not sure. It's a seafood hut and crabs are their specialty. Crabs, crabs and more crabs. A couple of shrimp dishes and hamburgers for the non-seafood eaters. Wish their menu was more diverse.
