This restaurant was close to our hotel and based on the reviews we thought we would try it out. Our waitress was very pleasant. She asked if it was our first time eating there and where we were from. She made us feel special and happy to have us there. Service was spot on. They do have large portions and... More

We always make a point of visiting Doc Ford's for either lunch or dinner when we in town. Had the opportunity to visit again and was not disappointed at all. The feature, hog fish, was cooked to perfection as was the steak dinner.

Real Steak - not minute steak-ums. Total surprise that the steak sandwich with cheese and mushrooms on a fresh roll - first, it was huge, but besides that, it was all fresh and delicious. Service was great - we sat out back, outside. Great lunch and reasonable.

We stopped on way back to resort for quick meal. Didn't know much about the place before we arrived. Were we surprised!! We ended up splitting a flatbread appetizer and then splitting an amazing Shrimp and Grits dinner. Friendly staff, great services, great food.

We went to Doc Fords at Fort Myers Beach early evening and sat outside. They had a band playing and the ambience was great. The service and food was really good. I had crab cakes and they were very good. My husband had fish which he said was excellent. We also love the one on Sanibel Island as everything's just... More

My favorite place in SW Florida to go for lunch, have a few cocktails, enjoy the view and rock the dock with Deb and the Dynamics. Are you looking for something great to do, with decent food and drinks, and a great location? How about sublime entertainment, a party crowd, dancing, fun all on the dock in beautiful SW Florida....

We go to Doc Fords at least once every time we are in FMB. The view is great,the staff is courteous, and the food is good. We went for a late lunch on Sunday, seated outside on the upper level. I had the most delicious fish sandwich I've ever had, and my husband had a delicious bowl of chowder -... More

I've recently been reading Randy Wayne White's Doc Ford books. We decide to visit. It was a fun evening. Good food. Great waterfront views.
