Bonita Bill's is located right on the water in a marina on the San Carlos Bay. It is not the easiest place to find, as it is located under the bridge leading onto Fort Myers Beach. There is nothing classy or upscale about this joint, and that is just fine, Expect to see dock workers, sailors, and... read more

We went to Bonita Bill's to soak up the "local feel" and we were not disappointed. Order at the bar and expect great food and cold beer. Everyone should slow down and enjoy the atmosphere, sit relax and enjoy what Florida has to offer. Watch the shrimp boats come in and treat yourself to fresh at it's best. We will... More

I like the atmosphere, entertainment and food here. You better be ready to order when you get to the register or you'll get treated with disrespect like no other place and probably be passed-up for the next person in line. I would go there more often but they have no credit which is a problem for most people nowadays especially... More

Looking for a great fun bar!!!. Peppermint Patty sings Saturday afternoon from 1 to 6. Catchy music, Friendly staff and customers, and lively dancing!!!! This is the place for you. Only serves beer and wine, Not a large menu, mostly appetizers which were excellent. Order drink and food at bar, runners deliver food when ready.

Loved the waterfront location. Definitely a working man's kind of place. Get your own coffee. Used to be frequented by shrimpers. Ordered a sausage and egg biscuit- way better than Egg McMuffin!

very laid back and not fancy. OK food. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table. Live music and you can go by boat or car. They have a floating dock so easy boat parking no matter what the tide is.
