Actually all the menu items are thoughtfully prepared. I eat here quite often, usually for lunches, and the staff is friendly, the food is always properly prepared and they're happy to refill your glass.

I’ve stopped in here for a drink now and then when I stay in the area and the service is always friendly and efficient. My most recent visit I was a little hungry and ordered a simple club sandwich and it was very well prepared. I also happened to noticed the entrees of several other guests around me at the... More

Went to shoeless for dinner and drinks tonight. It's a great local hangout and the food is always good. I ordered the Cobb salad and it was exceptional and I loved having half leftover for tomorrow lunch. Nick was great behind the bar. Very attentive and a charming personality. I recommend checking out the outside patio anytime!

Emma H, Thank you for taking the time to share your great review of our restaurant! I will also be sure to share this with Nick. I do personally love our Cobb salad as well, but you should give our Black and Blue Steak Salad a try if you haven't done so already! Hope to see you again soon. Sincerely,... More

We were in Ft. Myers for a baseball tournament and had heard about Shoeless Joe's so decided to go for a bite to eat and to watch some of the college world series on TV. Lots of baseball and other sports memorabilia which was really neat. The night we were there the place was pretty dead - only a handful... More

This restaurant/bar is attached to the Crowne Plaza Bell Tower, Fort Myers. It is a bit tired. Needs to offer a compact menu of freshly made items. We had the house salad and home,add chicken soup. Just fine.

We ordered nachos from the menu for the two of us. When it came it was a huge plate. We asked why so big. Answer was " you could have gotten a half order. it's not that n the menu, you have to ask for it." Oh? Why weren't we asked full or half order? We hate wasting food and... More

This place shouldn't be called a cafe, it's clearly a bar. Inside is very noisy, to the point that I can't hear the people at my table. The food however is good.

I'm sorry you weren't able to carry a conversation in our place! You're right: We are primarily a sports bar, and there's not a lot we can do about the noise level, unfortunately. If you'd mentioned this to your server, we would've been happy to move you to a quieter spot. We'll keep this in mind going forward. Thanks for... More
