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.

Off season - those lazy summer and fall afternoons, this is one of the great, authentic old Florida experiences. My friends and I found this place years ago when we went to the much better next door restaurant - Florida Fish and Co. which has long since gone out of business I say much better because Bonita Bills really shouldn't...

Bonita Bill's is a bar nestled at a marina. This is definitely a seniors hang out - but boy they know how to party. Occasional live bands and entertainment make for a fun night hanging out with your folks.

We had just arrived in Fort Myers Beach and looked for a dog friendly restaurant. We found this and had a riot. The food was ok but the atmosphere on this night was excellent due to the great DJ and eclectic crowd. Cash only says it all but so GO!

Went to Bonita Bills for a beer and a burger on Thanksgiving. They had a full Thanksgiving dinner special and it was fantastic. White meat, dark meat, stuffing, collard greens, sweet potato soufflé, cranberry sauce, buns all served on a disposable plate and delicious. That at a cold Key West Lager and I was a happy camper. Great band, friendly... More

We love this place--the food, the music, the view. Lots of locals so you know it's a good deal. So much fun! You order at the bar, get a number + the food is brought out to you--always with a smile.

My 16 yr old son and his friend ordered food. Apparently if you're under 60, you don't deserve respect here. After 35 minutes, I went to the service area and inquired where our wings were. The "cook" came out and insisted he had been looking for us and we were not claiming our order. When i disagreed, He proceeded to... More

Great waterfront ambience. Love the egg, bacon & cheese sandwich on english muffin & bottomless hot coffee. Everytime we come to Florida, we are sure to walk the Fort Myers Beach bridge (parking under) & coming back to Bonita Bill's for breakfast.

We were there on a Monday night and the place was packed with Seniors who were having a great time listening to the Live Band and Dancing through out the night. Its right on the water but get there early if you're looking for a seat. I think it was cash only also make sure you bring cash. The food... More

If you are looking for a really great place with a waterfront view and a tikki bar flavor, this is it !! And if can carry a tune , try the karaokee on Tuesdays and Fridays. Sound system is the best, the d j Jim carrys about every song you can think of, and the crowd is always fun and... More
