It is a quaint little restaurant on Route 17 with inside and outside eating. You don't need to dress up as it is very casual. The lobster dinner is terrific and delicious. They also have cheeseburgers and other seafood. I will definitely go there again.

From the Chesapeake Bay area? You will recognize the way the crabs are prepared here. Absolutely the best seafood that we had on this trip. Julie has a crab cake with local shrimp. While the crab cake isn't done in the Maryland style it is excellent. I had the local shrimp with mussels and clams. (We arrived a few minutes... More

The all you can eat blue crabs are a fun way to enjoy your company, have a cold sweet tea or beer. The shrimp are huge and the shecrab soup (on Thursdays) is the best around!

Since I'm a vegetarian, I can't eat at this restaurant. However my friend kept telling me about the key lime pie. I finally caved and bought one. I'm so glad I did! The pie is the perfect amount of tart and citrus. The crust is a lovely gram cracker that doesn't crumble! Delicious! So to the vegetarians out there, don't... More

You have to visit Peace River Seafood if you're anywhere near! Crab cakes, all you can eat shrimp and lobster nuggets are delightfully yummy! We always go with a bunch of friends and everyone has a great time and leaves stuffed! Try it for lunch, dinner or anytime in between!

It's a roadside joint with outdoor (dog friendly) seating under big shady trees, plus indoor seating. They have all-you-can-eat blue crabs, incredibly fresh fish, stone crabs (in season), the most amazing mussels, clams, you name it! Plus, homemade key lime pie. It's not fancy, but it's GOOD! Plus, it's moments off of I-75.

Really excellent food at decent prices. Quaint atmosphere - it's an old, remodeled house. Outside dining is available on a large deck beside a pretty coy pond fed by a small waterfall. Maybe my favorite seafood restaurant in the area.
