Airboat ride then lunch! Captain grew up on the Peace river, knew it well and was very proud, I like that. Stunning scenery and no bugs! Could have stayed back there forever. The grill part is a "shackish" type place, totally what we look for!...More

Late review but important to note. I visited this place in April of 2015 with my elder parents and black husband - I am white and our children are mixed, not that any of this should matter. However, when you are treated the way we...More

From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a horrendous smell. I think the stench has to be coming from sewage. This used to be a fun place but now, it has become run down. They have skimpy, over-priced food portions. I can't...More

This place is a hoot! We didn't eat there but the food looked delicious! Very, very casual. Bring your own chair if you want, sit in the sand! Good music! Good drinks! Fun people!

Fun spot!  We were there for lunch on a Friday,  but would love to get back there one day for an evening.  Lots of spots outside, some tables right on the sand, stage for live music, a fire pit with muskoka chairs, and could see...More

Simply put, a beer and burger joint where you can also get other menu items. Many outside tables in a courtyard where you can play "corn hole" buy souvenirs, look at their collection of old outboard motors and a stuffed bison. An Interesting stop for...More

The Nav-A-Gator is a hidden gem. It's a throwback to old Florida right on the Peace River. We go there every time we're in the area. Our waitress, Mona, was fabulous. Great service and food suggestions.

For a 3 year old kid, the first 5 min. will be great, but then it will be boring.
