Hard to put a rating on this place because it's a sports bar, pure and simple, and doesn't try to be anything else. Good burgers and dries, friendly waitstaff and quick service. And a jillion tv's tuned to all sorts of sports events. Worth it if you are staying at the Crowne Plaza or if you need a sports fix.

Great place for the non- sports fan and sports fan alike. Multiple tv's with no sound. Attentive servers,who remember your drink order on your next visit! Great salsa and chips. Extensive beer menue. Really enjoyed sitting on the deck. Nice compliment to the Crowne Plaza.

It is nice and comfortable, there is a good selection of foods, there are television every where, nice place to unwind and catch the game. I saw Miami give Indiana the business in Game four.

Food was very good and priced appropriately. Service not so much. Nightly food specials are the best deal

I went to Shoeless Joe's for dinner and it was very good. The staff were friendly , and the atmosphere was casual. The menu was typical for a sports bar , and the food we ordered was all very good. I will return on my next trip to Ft. Myers.

The atmosphere was okay. We sat on the outdoor patio. Service was adequate. The food was mediocre at best. The salad was swimming in dressing and the lettuce was limp and boring. I would not return. Too many other places to try.

Staying across the road at Homewood Suites and saw how busy Shoeless Joes was on the Friday night with a very good live act in the outside bar area.

Just a short walk from Homestead Suites. Very greasy onion rings. Beer cold. Had a female singer/key board player one night. Got cheese sticks second visit and more cold beer. Those were greasy too. Handy for cocktail, but did not care for food.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sorry to hear you did not enjoy the onion rings or mozzarella sticks. Even though they are fried foods, they obviously shouldn't be too greasy. We would have been happy to check up on this for you in the moment, but I'll definitely follow up! That said, I'm glad you enjoyed your cocktails. I hope... More

I was on a week long business trip and every salad I ordered had been disappointing, until I had one at Shoeless Joe's...the food is great here!!! I was hesitant to eat a salad at a sports bar where I'm sure fried food and burgers are their specialty. So I was very impressed with my salad. The next day I... More
