All of our dishes were very tasty and the views were gorgeous. I had the fried oysters that were perfectly done along side delish fried potato wedges. The other plates at my table all looked amazing and everyone raved about the flavor and taste. I'd definitely check this place out if you ever get the chance. The staff was also... More

Nervous Nellies has a great waterfront deck, perfect for relaxing and having some good drinks and eats. Menu is very large. We have been there for lunch which was excellent, but tried it for dinner and food wasn't as good. One meal needed to go back as it was ice cold. Steamer pot is awesome. Also a great drink selection.

We usually only go to Nervous Nellie's once or twice a year on vacation but they always deliver. We ordered seafood and steak and the service was excellent. Everything was cooked perfectly in large portions and the sides were great.

Best food selection around the menu is huge. You have to try the two fisted Reuben by far the best I've ever had

We ate here 3 times during our stay. The kids loved it. We liked the huge choice which meant there was something for everybody. (there were 10 of us). The staff were always friendly and helpful. We ate in but plenty of tables outside overlooking the water which was nice at sunset. Great for family dining if I wanted a... More

On our first trip to Fort Myers Beach, we had dinner outside at Nervous Nellie's but it was a bit chilly. This time it was perfect; even with a little rain just before we arrived, the super staff worked hard to wipe all the tables and get everything ready. The view at the dockside is awesome and the live band... More

We come to the Sanibel-Ft Myers Beach area 2-4 times a month. Eat lunch out a lot and wanted to try something different. Went for lunch at Nervous Nellies today and service was so bad, we left before lunch arrived. And the menu was crazy...too much on it and too busy.  Waited a long time before being asked what to...
