If you love pelicans, dolphin spotting, fishing and pleasure boats together with a rustic appeal - then this is your place. You sit outside on weathered stools and high tables or patio tables, some with umbrellas right on the wharf. Heaven! Pitchers of beer and "pub" fare is the menu - cash only/order at the bar.

Not fancy and cash only. We were there on Thursday night. The place was packed. Ordered at the counter - we waited about 30 minutes for our food. Most items are fried. I enjoyed the blackened fish burger, however disappointed to find out that the fish was not local, but farmed fish from Vietnam.

We always pick a sunny afternoon to hang out here with friends when staying at Fort Myers Beach...peel and eat shrimp, cold beer, and mellow Caribbean music. NOT fancy for sure, but pleasant atmosphere.

A long time ago it was the perfect lunch New Years day. Nothing fancy , just a waterfront bar under the bridge with decent food and draft beer - stopped by again this year , nothing has changed.

Loud obnoxious music.... No plastic.. Only beer and wine... Mediocre over fried food.. But by far the deciding factor of me not returning was the 2 incredibly rude bartenders... One was a young blonde kid who walked away saying Beer and wine. Only... The other a middle aged woman who started yelling at me when i asked about the bloody... More

The restaurant is dirty. The staff had to be flagged down, with all of 4 people at the bar. Food was thrown together. Would not go back.

If you like the dive atmosphere, this place is for you. You have to order at the bar, no service, only cash, limited drinks, very greasy food.

Went fishing on the Sea Trek, brought back plenty of fish. Why fry it yourself when Bonita Bills will fry it for you for a little $$. Not greasy, live music too!!!!
