Nice meal on the waterfront. We were in the mood for surf and turf and it met our expectations. We got there when it was dark out and only thing I can say is what it was hard to read the menus, additional lighting at the table would've been nice. Went back another time for cocktails, appetizer and to watch... More

Went for apps (crab and shrimp dip) and drinks last Week. Lisa was our bartender, so friendly and attentive, even the food runner was friendly and went out of their way to be nice. App was delicious. In a high volume tourist restaurant it is rare to find staff like this. Thanks Lisa!

While visiting Ft. Myers Beach, my family ate here twice, once a full lunch without me and again for drinks and snacks. A lovely atmosphere and a beach-side table. Our waitresses were wonderful, very attentive, and appreciative of thanks and gratuities. Delicious food with a view!

This is our second time in Fort Myers beach. The view is unforgettable!! The outdoor bar is right in front of the beach. The lady bartender that works in the afternoon is very friendly, excellent service. I wish I remember her name, she served us last time also. Great hospitality and smile on her face all the time.

We went here solely because it was billed as a good place to view the magnificent sunset view over Ft. Myers Beach, and that it was. The view was nothing short of stunning. However, after we finished taking a few selfies and were ready to eat, we were pleasantly surprised that this was not just a typical, fried food beach... More

I enjoy this place, including the giant Adirondack chair. The appetizers are reasonable, and the cocktails are well made. Once, my waiter changed hats and played with the band. How fun is that? Beautiful location, open air seating and a fine view of Sanibel. Highly recommend a visit.

The view is great! The outside bar & patio could use a little updating. Staff friendly. Bloody Mary comes in a tiny little cup that is completely stuffed with ice so about 4 drinks and it's gone and I believe the price was $6. Food is average, not terrible but not great. I had the Chicken sand with guacamole, my... More
