Great little sports bar!

Popped in to Shoeless Joe's while in Fort Myers for spring training - it came highly recommended by a local sports program up here in New England. We were not disappointed! Inside the Crowne Plaza at the Bell Tower Shops right off Rt 41, the atmosphere was all sports, from TV's to pool tables and... read more

An active place to watch your favorite team on TV or visit with friends for a meal or drink! It's part of the Crowne Plaza, so you don't need to drive any distance, it's all walking! Still don't like the smoking on the outdoor patio!

Ate at Shoeless Joe's & had the best service ever. Our server Eva is absolutely the best. She is friendly, polite & professional. She makes dining here a very pleasant experience. She is Top Shelf!

Just across the street we can go and have a fast, economical meal. The service is good and the waitresses friendly. It is very casual and they have karaoke night.

We took part in a special promotion and dined at a wonderful rate. The food was good, the wait staff was prompt and the 'sale' on specialized clothing was outstanding. Next year we may come a week later to take advantage of the Twins Spring Training Camp.

We stopped at Shoeless Joes to catch the Saturday race. I was very impressed that our bartender went out of his way to turn it on as it was not on any of the tv's when we got there. Great service!

The cafe is convenient for those who stay at the Crowne Plaza hotel since it's in the same building. As you would expect there are lots of TV screens, baseball pictures on the walls and a fairly large selection of American food. My fish sandwich was good and my husband enjoyed his burger. We however had to cut our dinner... More

Glad you and your husband enjoyed your fish sandwich and the burger! I'm sorry you had to cut your meal short because you were so cold, though. I wish you would've mentioned this to your server. Of course, we want our guests to be comfortable, and we would've happily fixed it right away. We'll make sure it doesn't happen again.... More

My wife and I walked in around 10:30am to get breakfast. We were the only 2 people in the place. I had to go and look for someone to help us. The server repeated our order twice and brought out the wrong drink after she said apple juice twice.(not a big deal). She brought me coffee but never asked if... More

Wow, Tim, it sounds like you had a pretty bad experience at our place. I'm really sorry to hear that the service and the food were both lacking. As for the food, it's really too bad it let you down. We'll work on making those eggs better, and I'll be sure to have a chat with my team about giving... More

The good news is that when all the really good restaurants in the area have an hour wait, you can probably get into Shoeless Joe's. That tells you something. But the food isn't bad, there's a pretty good selection of items, the service is good, the prices are reasonable and the beer is cold. Can't ask for a lot more... More

We're a little disappointed to hear that the best thing about our place was its location. We'd definitely like to make that better. While it's wonderful that the beer was cold and the service is good, we want the food to be a highlight. Thanks for letting us know it was just okay. Hopefully next time it will be a... More
