We went as a group for my birthday. It's happy hour upstairs all the time so that's where we went. Some country radio station was hosting (on a Friday night) which isn't our kind if music but they were entertaining so ok. It's a fun crowd upstairs. Drinks are encouraged and it seemed like people were quick to offer a... More

As a large group (7) we were seated on the patio right away, which was wonderful! The menu is huge, even the kids menu is rather large, which was nice for a change. Our appetizers came pretty quick, but our food was right on its heels. Our service was lacking. We were offered no drink refills, we had to wave... More

Staff was friendly, portions are huge, and the food is delicious! A little pricey but worth every penny. Drinks pretty strong. Best gator tail I've ever tasted. Only downside for me was the rediculously huge menu, it reads like a newspaper.

On a recent trip with the family we were again pleased. The food was delicious and the portions plentiful. We had the most pleasant server her name was Lisa, what a delight. Thanks for a great time, see you next time ;)

All four of us loved our meals. I had a salad with salmon and really enjoyed it. Everything tasted really fresh and the portions were very generous. Our waiter was very patient with us since their menu is a bit overwhelming. He told us in high season that the wait can be an hour. We didn't wait at all. Location... More

We had great service at Nervous Nellie's. It was worth the minute wait. Servers and bartender were very friendly. Decor is cute and very beachy. We sat inside to avoid the heat and still had a great view of the water. The food was great. The server made recommendations because the menu was HUGE!

While honeymooning this was one of the best places we ate at in Fort Meyers Beach. The atmosphere was great, as was the food. The drinks were really good to. And the price was great for the amount of food and drinks you get.

This was our first visit to Nervous Nellies and not to sure about the food. Our drinks were cold. And refreshing. I decided to split the food with my husband and i am glad i did. The portions were so big and so good. We could not believe the portion size and the price was right. If you ever visit... More
