Had the Asian chicken salad. It was quite good. Very fresh tasting, and no too much dressing on it. The portion was a good size and the waitress was courteous and quick.

I have eaten here multiple times, and have not been disappointed. The menu offers a lot of variety for a hotel restaurant, the food is good, portions large, and the prices very reasonable.

The food is still very good. Our most recent dishes include blackened mahi-mahi, fish & chips, pigskin panini, philly cheese steak sandwich. We like it all and more. The outdoor seating is a favorite on Friday evenings with live music. Nick, the bartender/waiter does a great job and is a nice guy. The waitress that works with him is another... More

We stopped here for both lunch and later in the week dinner on a recent trip to Ft Myers. We loved the outdoor seating. Food was good and portions were large. We liked the variety of beers as well. They do have some entertainment at night.

We were pleased with a luncheon we had at Shoeless Joe's on a Saturday noon time. The Cafe wasn't crowded anyway but it was nice to have our own space with tables arranged in a big square all facing one another.

After reading the good reviews on this restaurant and having it suggested that I try their AYCE fish on Fridays by a coworker, I decided to give Shoeless Joe's a try on my way home from work last night.

We stopped for a late lunch and cocktail and we're met very cordially and waited on quickly. The food was very good for a sports bar and reasonably priced. I would reccomend.

We were looking for a laid back bar to chill and have some drinks and dinner at. We had the Dimagio and an order of mozz bats. Both were great!!!

Typical menu ..., we ordered the grouper bites, onion rings, potato skins, sliders. The food was okay except the grouper bites were too fishey tasting and the sliders would be better with good cheese.
