This place is always solid. I have never had a bad meal or service. Its right on the water and I always stick with seafood including lobster rolls and grouper. If you go to a seafood place and order steak you get what you deserve. This is not a 5 star restaurant but its above average and I have eaten... More

We went to Nervous Nellie's the week of August 18, off season. Although we changed servers during the course of the meal because they cut some due to the small crowd, we had great service the entire time. They also were helpful with my son's food allergy (dairy), and adjusted one of the dishes for him. My husband's tuna was... More

We visited Nervous Nellies for lunch while in Fort Myers for a short vacation. The patio was full and server very nice, but clearly assigned to too many tables to be attentive to any one as she should. We ordered an appetizer and a fish and shrimp basket. Both were good, portions huge, but most of what we got in... More

The second day we went for dinner since it was fun the first night the food was ok but the service was absolutely the worst I had all weekend. It took our waitress about 25 min to get our drinks (...

Had lunch there today for the first and last time. The food was OK, the service was poor. I ordered a dish i new would be gluten free, because I have to be for medical reasons, we explained this to the waitress explaining no bread, flour, wheat, etc..., and the dish was delivered with bread on top, to which the...

Waited in bar area for 20 minutes without service. Finally, we got an attitude & nice sized bill. Food was very good but employes weren't friendly. Plenty of better spots on FMB

Stopped here for drinks after our boat trip. Gin & tonics perfect. Quirky location with great views. Recommended by a couple from South Virginia we met on the boat.

We sat upstairs on the patio at night and experienced beautiful views of the water and all of the boat coming into dock. our server was very friendly and quick to attend to our needs. Firstly, we ordered fried alligator. This was... More

This is a quirky, Key West style restaurant in a great location on the water. It had the largest menu I have seen outside the Cheesecake Factory, with some classic dishes and some really unusual ones too. We had six different meals between us and every one was absolutely delicious and absolutely huge! Don't have an appetiser! Our waitress was... More
