Good food but meh service

We went upstairs to Ugly's and sat ourselves and the entire time our waitress seemed super disinterested in us. At one point she came in from outside with sunglasses on and didn't remove them while talking with us, which was weird since it was dark out. The food was really good but maybe we would... read more

One of the highlights of Ft. Myers beach. It is a very well known land mark. I was there a couple of months ago and had to make a return visit on this trip too. The food is excellent and the drinks are too. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is beyond great.Will definitely will visit again if I... More

As always great service by Mark & Kim. Betty was working as hard as always seating people & the ribs were excellent. Austin the food server had the best attitude/personally we have seen in a long time do that job. This young man should have a great future.

At one point she came in from outside with sunglasses on and didn't remove them while talking with us, which was weird since it was dark out. The food was really good but maybe we would have gotten better service downstairs.

We had a wonderful lunch here. I had coconut shrimp and it was delicious. My mom enjoyed the seafood combo platter (loved the grouper). Service was also great! Highly recommend!

After hearing a recommendation from a friend who has a house in Ft. Meyers we decided to try Nervous Nellies and don't regret it at all. Wife had the Coconut Grouper and loved it. I had a Ribeye steak and it was cooked perfectly and also fantastic. The fresh cut fries were great as well. For drinks we had the... More

Outstanding customer service!! From the moment we walked into the door to the time we left, the staff was so friendly, helpful and professional. The food was outstanding and the Nervous Nellie drink was so good. We loved it so much, we went back for lunch the next day!

There were about 9 of us one night for dinner and we all enjoyed the food. I got the crabcake melt on homemade bread which was delicious and HUGE, some got the fish and others the shrimp. All were good but not as good as Doc Ford's and more expensive.

We have lived on Fort Myers Beach for 2+ years and one of our favorite restaurants is Nervous Nellies because the food is very good and certain people always give us 5 stars for their fantastic service , such as Elyse the hostess who always has a great smile and makes you feel right at home .

Arrived by boat and docked in from which was very convenient. It was early for lunch so we were seated in the window area towards the back which was nice. Rita was our server and was very personable and informed about their "fun" menu as they refer to it. The menu is really a bit much and could be spelled... More

Located just down the street from Fort Myers beach, right on the water. Boat dockage right in front of restaurant. Excellent menu with everything you could want. Portions are large and everything we have tried has been good. Reuben sandwich was exceptional. Carrot cake was big enough for three. Drink menu was fairly priced. Fun place to eat with great...
