We booked a ride in the air boat tour with Captain Trey. He was a fantastic captain, guide and story teller!! We saw several turtles and alligators while cruising the river. Highly recommended the air boat tour!!

Hand painted walls, floors, ceilings, tables...Have that quirky but cool vibe. Open seating means you end up with strangers but it was fun and interesting. Food was good, large portions. Service was very slow but the place was full. Because the food was really good! Worth finding this place. Go sit out back under the trees with your toes in... More

We winter @ Riverside RV on the Peace River. Lunch @ the Navagator via a short Kayak paddle is always a fun event. Takes only 30 minutes to paddle down. Navagator is a 'Old Florida' experience. If you're close by you should stop. Good service. Last time I was there I had their fried bologna sandwich :) and their homemade... More

This is a great venue for small jam music fest. Outdoor small stage with great local and pooled talent. Combined original and pop music. Linda Ronstat songs and the like from a trio of women who sang with their soul when we were there. There is a local underground of back yard music 2-5 with bring your pot luck with... More

Very good sandwich with fries. Should of taken a picture but was almost done before I thought of it. I had the blackened red fish sandwich and comes with fries. Great flavor and bid enough portion to fill me up. Would eat that again.

My networking group and I planned a boat trip up the Peace River on a Thursday afternoon. I called Nav-a-gator on Tuesday to ask if a reservation was necessary or if they expected large lunch crowds. They said no to both. We docked at 12:15, were seated and ordered drinks. They told us the kitchen was closed until they could... More

Food is great and location is charming but sitting at a table by the register and listening to the waitresses claim customers and talk rudely about them made lunch a little awkward.

Ourvwaitress ,Kristen, recommended the 8 ounce burger snd the redfish sandwich. She was right. The burgers got good reviews and the redfish was really good. The fries are also a good choice. Come early.

Nav-a-gator is an eccentric, fun, casual place for a meal. Do not be in a hurry when you come to dine here! All the food is made from scratch to order, but is well worth the wait! The coconut shrimp with the pina colada dipping sauce is to die for, and the fried chicken is the best I've had at... More

Stopped down to catch Paul Rousch, and wound up catching some great fish! Fish sandwich and fish dip (and blackened fish salad) were all excellent, and the outdoor seating and stage a great time. Only downside is the lack of seating (we weren't aware it's largely bring your own chair -- and our rental car didn't come with them anyway),... More
