I have been here both times I have visited Fort Myers, once during "busy" season and once during "off" season and both times was exceptional. The wait staff is very attentive and on point, and the food is delicious! I will be back EVERY time I visit. I have been teased by there commercials in New England on tv for... More

The view was great, the food was good. I guess if you've eaten at one Joe's Crab Shack, you've eaten at them all, except this one has a great view of the bay.

This is a nice restaurant right next to a small boat harbor. The atmosphere was very nice with the great view. Our food was very good and our server was a delight.

This restaurant was not very clean. The staff was VERY nice and everyone was attentive but the table was encrusted with filth as were the bucket for garbage on the table and the chairs (as well as the window sill right next to us & the flatware in another bucket). Sad to give it a poor rating but I had... More

I would not describe the food as excellent, but good and pretty good value. We were here a year ago and came back our first night back in Fort Myers. The service is great, the food is good, the restaurant is a little noisy but that is to be expected, I think. Although there are lots of fried entrees, there... More

The steamer pots are one of my favorites but all of their food is good. The appetizers, the meal, it's all good. The drinks are generous and not over priced.

My husband and I love to come here! We have never had a bad meal. Always delicious! Only once did we come and had a bad server, but other than that one time, the staff is always good. We still come here and enjoy the great taste of great seafood!

My wife and I shared one of the steam pots (can't remember the exact name) with crab, mussels, scallops, corn, potato, and a tasty wine broth/sauce. It was plenty for the 2 of us for lunch, but we aren't really big eaters. It wouldn't be unreasonable for one person (about $22). The seafood was all fresh and tasty, nicely done.... More

The crab pots are delicious. Prices run a little high on some dishes, but the service is always pretty fast when we go there and the food is great. Nice place for a date night.
