Went for dinner with other coupled and sat outside on the deck. The drinks, food and service were best we had our whole trip!! Ordered the Lobster Mac as appetizer and split it between four of us...AMAZING!! Our awesome waiter recommended a dish for each of us and these meals did not disappoint...Best experience we've had...definitely will make it back...

Nice beachy coastal atmosphere! Excellent service and good. Huge menu selection for everyone. Includes a specialty bar for any drink of your choice along with the "house specials". If you haven't been to Nervous Nellies, you haven't been to Ft. Myers Beach!

We love to sit up top in Uglies. Great view. The menu is large - always hard to make the choice. We had lobster roll, crab cakes, fish tacos and grouper. All excellent. You can make reservations on the main level which is great when they're busy.
