We have visited the Cape Coral/Fort Myers area a few times and each time we end up at Doc Ford's. Great place to eat and relax while enjoying the beautiful views. We had rented a boat for the day and thanks to their boat docks, this was easy to walk right onto their outside seating.
Super friendly wait staff and the food is delicious. Our server, Netta was our server and she did fantastic and did a great job with our large group.

Celebrated our son’s 17th birthday. Heidi, our server was awesome! The service and food were excellent, the atmosphere was fun with live music, and we had a great time! We sat outside by the water and really enjoyed the entire evening. Highly recommend Doc Ford’s!

This place does a bustling business, which I suspect is going on reputation. Service was adequate, but I was a bit put-off when I received my bill and discovered the upgraded fish on my fish sandwich was just as much as a fish dinner. Perhaps I should have asked, but my expectation is that the server should mention that fact at the time of ordering.
Also, we had a party of six and it was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation because this place is noisy, noisy, noisy! Oh well lesson learned!

We had a reservation for 8 people at 6:30 and it was almost 7:30 before we where seated in the restaurant. We had cocktails in the bar area while we waited so it was no big deal to us. Once seated, wait staff took our orders and food was served very fast. Everything was very good and our waiter took great care of us.
