Not many folks here in June, but I understand it is really busy in winter. The food was good. The live band was outstanding and the karaoke on the non-band nights was, well, karaoke.

This great location is under the bridge to Ft. Myers Beach overlooking the Inter Coastal Waterway and the boat docks. We will be going back.

Well, what is a Friday night like if you do not head down to Bonita Bills for a round of Karaoke. Whether you are celebrating a birthday or just relaxing from a hard week of work, sitting on the water with a drink in your hand is the way to go.

We went in with a fairly large group of 20 people. We sat outside, multiple tables of around 6-8. The place is old fishing shack Florida...sitting on the water. Pitchers of beer are priced just right...You go up to a window to place your order and are given a number. We both ordered shrimp and chips. Portions were decent....your typical... More

This sure is a must each time we visit FMB. Really great place, more a shack than a restaurant but excellent food and friendly people, staff as well as other guests. Their peel and eat shrimps are so fresh and also the fish fingers or the fresh tuna melt are exellent. After 2 pm there is live music and it... More

This is an old lay back place under the bridge on the back bay. Fresh seafood, cold beer. No credit cards, just cash. Shrimp basket remains my favorite.

I have to agree with many others. What a lovely laid back place to go and eat or drink. Prices are very reasonable. Pitcher of Lager with sealed bag of ice in to keep it cool was the best. Lovely views of docks etc and lots of interesting locals . Remember CASH only.

Great value here for excellent food on the dock. They have live music every night I think. We ate here 3 times in the week as it is so good and reasonable. Bar, restaurant, breakfast, lunch and supper. You can't go wrong here if you're blue collar or retired.

Really good place right on the docks. Gorgeous view. Beers were pretty affordable. It's not a 5 star restaurant so don't expect it. Seems more of a locals joint but that's fine by me. Would go back no problem.

Music all the time. The food wasn't great but some was good. The best thing about Bonita Bills is the comfortable, fun open air atmosphere. The entertainment is geared to please the audience. The performers have a following. The place is packed on Thursday evenings with Ray and Deb in season and on Saturday afternoons with Peppermint Patty all year.... More
