Fun atmosphere

The atmosphere was fun, and the portions were huge. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. A place that's more about the good time.

We went to Nervous Nellie's twice during our stay in ft. Myers. The food was fantastic! Best Cuban sandwich I've had in years! My wife loved the food as well.

We always eat here when at FMB. The menu is so large that I always have trouble deciding. The burgers and sandwiches are large. Whether you order appetizer, sandwich or a steak - you will not be disappointed. You can eat out on the pier or inside. It is on the bay - not the ocean. There are lots of... More

This brightly-colored restaurant is right down in the main tourist area of Ft. Myers beach, but tucked a bit under the big bridge. We travel with our dog, so it's not often easy to find a restaurant that will allow him to join us. This restaurant has an inside, but I really must suggest the outside. We had a huge... More

the food was wonderful, but our server was too busy to get our drinks refilled. We were there for over two hours and spent most of the time looking for her with hopes that she would bring us what we needed, but she never did.

The service here is always good, and we have always had good food. The fried grouper has always been my favorite. The ribs are also very good.

Nervous Nellie's has an extensive menu and a wonderful water view whether dining indoors or on the patio. The food never disappoints.
