We can't go to Fort Myers Beach without visiting SOB. We love the location, atmosphere and most of all the food. My husband got the Combo Bucket with Snow Crab and it was worth the money. Next time we are going to get the Garlic Crabs, I hear they are amazing. We have never had a bad experience here and... More

Terrible experience with service and food... Maybe you can fool a tourist, but not a floridian.... Grouper was terrible, LOOKED LIKE A GROUPER FINGER, not fresh and on top of it made me pay for it!!! Didn't even offer something else and argued that they catch grouper daily... Food was definitely not fresh at all!!!!

After being disappointed by the bigger restaurants we decided to stop in here for dinner. This place isn't as fancy as the big restaurant's but the food was so much better. It isn't big but worth a visit. Service was good as well.

All I can say is that this is probably the best restaurant on the beach. The owner started it a few years ago and goes out of his way to provide fresh local seafood and menu items. Have a drink or grab some grub, either way it's tops!

Had dinner at the SOB per a local suggestion, all around superb on all levels, atmosphere, apps, friendly service, food, music. My husband ordered 1 of the "bucket entrees" & was dressed with a bib & simply in heaven. Soup is amazing too! Some of the best we've had in the area.

If you visit this location try the Grouper Bites. The were very good. Stuffed Mushrooms were no bargain. Waiter was a great guy and a very attentive server. Garlic Bread was also pretty good. I would go back again

Easily one of the best bar/restarurants on Fort Myers Beach. The steamers are amazing and a large portion of food. Fantastic service.

Bottled beer only but great cocktail menu! Conch chowder was authentic and yummy! Kind of smoky at the bar but open air dining just off the beach!

Thank kpuhle
