My husband and I always eat at Doc Ford's at least once while vacationing in Fort Myers. We like the consistency of the food and drinks, always very good. There are many seats with a great water view to enjoy while dining as well. On a very busy weekend we ended up sitting near the bar area instead of waiting... More

Stopped by to have a birthday cocktail and the bartender was very nice and informative. The prices were average but the location and surroundings were very enjoyable. We did not eat but the menu was extensive. We would go back. great view of the ocean as well.

This was the best decision we made all holiday as it was the best meal we had whilst on holiday. The setting of the restaurant on the waterfront is fabulous and really adds... More

Great food and service, we saw a beautiful moonrise over the bay. The owner is a local author so we purchased one of his books. The restaurant is a bit awkward to get to. You need to go over the bridge, turn left and go back under the bridge.

We went to Doc Ford's last week. The food was awesome, as were the cocktails. The views are great, except when the storm hit. Thunder & lightening was impressive. We had a good night and our server looked after us.

Delicious food with a view. Try the fish fingers and the Yucatan shrimp. You can't go wrong. Stay late enough and take some amazing pictures of the sunset. Well worth the money.

Went to Doc Ford's in Fort Myers, FL 2 times recently. The view is awesome of the channel, docks and boats just under the bridge at Ft. Myers Beach. They have specialty drinks of the day, a great happy hour prices and awesome food. We got the mussels and they were some of the best we have eaten. The sauce... More

Great restaurant, I had Seafood Paella and hubby had ribs, he said they were the best ribs he'd ever had, seafood was plentiful in the Paella and it was a bit spicer, just the way I like it, going back to,taste the ribs myself!
