Peace River Seafood
If you are looking for great seafood with an "old Florida" atmosphere, Peace River Seafood is a "local seafood shack in an authentic Florida Cracker House."
Peace River Seafood also has its own parrot, a petting zoo and boat-to-table, fresh-seafood. Their specialties include Blue Crab, shrimp and fish from local crabbers and fishermen.
"My husband is a crabber," Kelly Beall told us. "We found this place and opened up. We are now celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We are known for our blue crabs. They are caught right here. When you eat here, you are eating what we caught that day. We believe that fish is good only if it is fish caught that day."
Chef Jerry Collins agrees. "We catch our mullet right off Boca Grande. It's a much cleaner fish with a better taste," he said.
Peace River Seafood offers both inside and outside dining. The inside dining room walls are covered in a net that is filled with one dollar bills. Why? Customers kept telling the staff that Peace River Seafood crabs were better than the crabs they'd eaten up north. The staff began responding, "If I only had a dollar for every time someone said that!" Soon, it became a tradition for customers to sign a dollar bill and hang it in the net.
Peace River Seafood is located at 5337 Duncan Road, Punta Gorda, FL 33982. For more information, phone 941-505-8440 or visit https://www.facebook.com/peace.seafood.
