There is ample outdoor and patio seating available but on the night we attended, it was too cool outside to be comfortable, so we opted to wait approx 30 minutes for and inside table. The wait was well worth it as the seafood dishes which we had were wonderful.
Keep in mind that our visit was at the height of “season” so the wait would be far less at other times of the year. We would recommend Peace River Seafood to anyone who loves good locally sourced seafood served in an old Florida style restaurant.
Ask CaribbeanDetective about Peace River Seafood A few years ago we were camping in PuntaGorda, and we had visited a local mall, and at the end of the mall there was a bar on the water, Had mentioned how I missed my steamed crabs, and a couple across from us, said we're also from Maryland, you should try the Peace River Seafood.
They gave us directions and the next day we went,,,, Loved this place, nice people STEAMED CRABS (The way they are supposed to be) we hit this place several times. Very simple place good music at night, and my friends from Port Charlotte go there too since we told them and also friends from St. Lucy, and Englewood.
