Food is so so. The woman who runs the place is a Bit#$%ch. She is rude and mouthy. The service is at best sub par. The food is OK but not worth the inflated menu prices. Hygiene is not their strong suit. Flies are everywhere. It smells like an open sewer out on the deck. Don't waste your time or money.

We don't really eat crab so can't comment on that, but we have had there Grouper sandwich with Potatoes etc.. I have to say it was the best fish sandwich we ever tasted! Very large portions ..so no need to worry about leaving hungry! We will continue to recommend Peace River Seafood to all our customers looking for a great place to eat in this area. Oh and I can tell you when they are open they always have lots of people eating and waiting to eat there so that should tell you how good they are.

HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!
Based upon the glowing "hype" reviews herein, we, as locals, visited Peace River Seafood for the first (and last) time expecting to enjoy a wonderful dining experience. Instead, we were greatly disappointed with most of what we found there. The restaurant may be a great "find" for the all-you-can-eat crab diners, but unless you enjoy drinking your wine from clear plastic party glasses and eating your food with flimsy plastic knives and forks, you will do much better spending your money elsewhere. The wooden bench we sat on was much too low from the table top, and the food, with the exception of the steamed shrimp, can politely be described as ordinary diner fare. Both our meals came with golf ball-sized potatoes that were only half-baked and therefore inedible. Our dining experience was so disappointing that we can only suspect the glowing reviews given by others must have come from relatives or good friends of the restaurant owners.

I know the place is packed and sometimes you have to wait but it's so worth it. Just get there early - they're busy because people know the seafood is good and they close at 7:30. Friday and Saturdays are always busy because of the All-u-can eat. It's a very casual place - not fancy - don't wear your good shirt - crab shells are flyin! I was surprised at the bad review - they must want something uptown and this isn't the place for them - it's the place for ME!!!!

I tried this renovated little "cracker shack" last month. (July) I tried the florida lobster and shrimp creole. The best creole I have ever had. Potatoe salad and coleslaw are made from scratch. My dad had the crabcakes. They were excellent with the dipping sauce! Cant wait to go back!

We ate at Peace River Seafood recently and loved everything about it!! They had the best seafood I have ever had. The crabs were so sweet and juicy. The staff was wonderful and the atmosphere was so relaxing and quaint. I felt like I was on vacation somewhere. So much better then the other seafood restaurants I have been to in the area. I will be BACK, you can count it!!!

My family and I have been dining here for years. We love it! I always go for the clams (I order the whole bag) and shrimp (huge)
We often buy clams and cook them at home but why bother....
We love Peace River!!!

We have eaten at Peace River Seafood numerous 15 - 20 times and have yet to be disappointed. It is the first place one the list when our sons and families come to visit from Illinois and Texas.Truly can't believe the one bad review these people received. They have always been so gracious and go out of their way to make your visit a really wonderful and unforgettable experience.

I have eaten there are number of times and NEVER had a bad meal. I was startled by the bad review someone gave them. IT must have been a really off day. Fresh and delivisous is our comment!

They say FRESH? NOT! I picked out the 2 dozen LIVE crabs I wanted (paying $70), and the owner yelled at the employee who let me pick out my own crabs. Told him to give me the ones they already had cooked. I got home and ended up with very small, OLD, overcooked crabs. Surely not the size I picked out. BAD!!!

The owner was awful. We picked out live crabs (ordered $70 worth) and she yelled at the employee and told him to give us the cooked ones, not live ones. When we got home, we had a whole bag of very small, overcooked, old crabs. You might not get what you pay for. And the all-u-can eat dinners? You will get the smallest, dead crabs they have to serve. Very unimpressed.

We went to the Peace River Seafood Restaurant last night for their delicious blue claw crabs. We got there too late! What a disappointment! You must get there before 7 PM to order as they close at 8 PM. Since we got there too late, we ordered their Special of the Day - Shrimp Creole. I told my husband that I felt like I was in New Orleans! It was SO delicious and tasty and huge portions too! We are so fortunate to have such a quaint old Florida local restaurant with such FRESH (caught daily) seafood!

We just came back from the Chesapeake Bay area and their seafood did not compare to Peace River. We frequent Peace River Produce and Seafood and have NEVER been disappointed. The blue crabs are the best we've ever had! If you haven't eaten at Peace River Seafood, you don't know what you're missing!

I stopped by this roadside restaurant just because it said FRESH seafood..and I found out this is where the fishermen, crabbers, and shrimpers land their catch. You can eat in...or take fresh seafood to go. Eat with the locals outside at the tables or take it to go...reasonable price and FRESH!
