This is a very local dive bar on the water, as in below the bridge and by the docks. I would call the staff aggressive rather than rude. Line up, order, pay for your beer and food, take a number and people watch. We went on a Tuesday night, open mic night. The band is great for a dive, having... More

Watch the shrimp boats go by while eating some of the best local peel n eat shrimp. Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner…local entertainment and a Marine Flea Market on Sundays with $2. Bloody Mary's while you shop. This place is a Hoot.

Having read some of these reviews,I wonder what place they REALLY went to. Bonita Bill's is a great waterfront dive; passable bar food, good cold cheap beer and a fantastic non-stop entertainer (Chucky from Kentucky) while you watch the boats float by. What more could you want on a sunny afternoon

I had a blast. Peale and staff were friendly. The view is great of the back bay. A nice change of pace from the beach. Only criticism is lack of draft beer and no liquor.

If you are a tourist I would NOT recommend. INCREDIBLY rude wait staff and bar staff. Great food but not worth the suffering from the rude service who fished and complained about tipping before we even got our food. Owner was unsympathetic. Overall, if you're not a local and don't enjoy rude service don't eat here

Satisfy your inner beach bum, have a cold one with a pound of cold shrimp and forget the real world exists. Good music, order at the bar, excellent shrimp. Burgers and fries are decent.

Not far from Ft. Myers beach.Food is good and prices are reasonable. Sit outside by the dock and relax with food and drinks. They are not in a hurry to feed you and push you out.

Cash only. Average bar food, but tasty enough and a good value. Very casual, "boatie" atmosphere. We were able to have our little dog with us on the patio. Local musician was a bonus.
