Since moving here in September 2014 we have had this on our short list of places to try.On a whim we stopped by for lunch right off the beach. The shrimp was the best I have had since moving in the area ! My husband has "paella" (misspelled I am sure). We were both impressed by the freshness of the... More

Opting to avoid traffic on Ft. Myers Beach on a very busy day, we chose to stop for lunch at the local Doc Ford's. We like the restaurant on Sanibel and expected the same value and service and quality of food in the Ft. Myers Beach location--we were not disappointed. Our friendly waitress served our Lime Panko Fish sandwiches quickly... More

We had relatives in town, and wanted to take them to a good restaurant on the water. Doc Ford's was perfect! Although there was a wait for a table upstairs, the downstairs/outside deck was seat yourself and we got a wonderful table immediately. We also got a great waiter, which helped to make for a nice night. There was live... More

Had always wanted to eat here and decided to take family from Tampa for lunch. Food and service were both excellent but dining on the water is what makes this unique.

Good view of working boatyard. Yellowtail snapper was special of the day and it was excellent. Laid back and relaxing.

It was a chilly night and didn't want to dine on the beach so we tried Doc Fords. We waited about 15 minutes for a table and sat in the enclosed patio. The ambiance was good as well as the service. 3 of us had sandwiches and 1 had a salad. All were delicious. The restaurant is right on the... More

Good atmosphere and a great location overlooking the water. Service was good, staff very pleasant and efficient. Wings were great, very tasty. Good choice on menu, hardest bit is deciding what to order! My burger was very good. Live music too. All I. All a very good night

This was our first visit to Doc Ford's in Ct. Myers. The seafood was very fresh and yummy. The view was outstanding-views of the local shrimp boats and pleasure craft. Outside seating, inside dining room and bar seating. Our waiter Michael was excellent; he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
