This restaurant is our go-to place in Downtown Fort Myers. We love that there is never a wait since everyone seems to prefer waiting an hour or more for other restaurants that we're not impressed with. We have never been disappointed with the food at this restaurant, rather we greatly enjoy it. The service however, turns would could be a... More

We eat here for lunch almost everyday. Dinner service is something new. We were downtown for the theater and didn't want to spend an hour waiting at all the "fancy" places, so decided to try United. I am so very glad we did. Our prime rib was excellent, served just the way we like it.....medium to medium rare. The sauteed... More

I was shocked. The table was dirty, and yes, it was an outside table but that's no excuse for the thick coating of dirt and dust on it. Could you wipe it clean please, is that too much to ask. Several empty tables were covered with dirty dishes from previous customers. Yummy. The service was remarkably slow. The place was... More

On a rainy day in Fort Myers we saw the British flag, so popped in for tea. They have a wide choice of teas, we chose the Earl Grey. The server was friendly and pleasant, I could have eaten every cake on display ( but managed to exercise some restraint- no idea how). Prices reasonable, great location, music themed decor,... More

I just had breakfast here because I read a review about the Chiquita Chicken Omelet. Well.....it was GROSS. The description on the menu says the omelet has garlic and herb roasted chicken. Therefore, I was expecting roasted shredded chicken - like rotisserie chicken. Well it wasn't. The chicken was actually (or an exact replica of) Perdue's southwestern style short cuts.... More

I'm in downtown Fort Myers at least 2 times a month for work and eat at United on a regular basis. It is consistently good food and service at a decent price. It is usually quiet, food comes our quickly, friendly staff, clean usually has a few interesting items on the "special menu" that changes daily. I go with a... More

I find it hard now days to find service with a smile. I would like to take a moment and say thank you to the waiter Leslie! One of the best service experiences I have had, funny, outgoing, knowledgable about the food, restaurant, and the downtown area. I will definitely be back in to enjoy his company again along with...

I recently wrote a review for united that I am trying to get removed. I very VERY mistakenly thought I was overcharged a tip on my card when I left cash. I carelessly wrote a horrible review before letting the situation pan out. I assumed I was overcharged because my receipt did not match my creditcard account both online, Phone... More

My honey ordered espresso and was very impressed. He is quite a connoisseur when it comes to espresso. The barista was very receptive to a different formulation, ristretto. We will be back!

Stopped in today with some friends for a bite to eat. The food and presentation was flawless! My server recommended the coronation chicken cups and my what a treat they were excellent! All the food looked amazing and we will definitely be back again.
