This waterside eatery is located at the end of the bridge connecting Fort Myers Beach to the mainland. It is at the end of a buzzy street filled with bars and tourist shops. The venue benefits from a great location, right on the waterfront, with a huge, great looking outdoor deck. Indoors, it is quirky, colourful and fun. Our server... More

Dined early on both occasions so no long wait. Outdoor waterfront seating. Pet friendly on the deck. Excellent fried oysters, Cubano sandwich, crab-artichoke dip, monitors. An overwhelming menu! Parking no problem. Guitar and conga drum duo was excellent

Open late for great food, this place has it all. It is a tourist attraction, a hangout for locals, a bar, a grill, a restaurant, all serving up the fresh catch of the day right on the water. You can sit upstairs, downstairs, inside or outside. Various menu items make it so everyone will be pleased.

We visit this waterfront restaurant at least twice while we are staying in the area and more often if we can. The menu is huge, so much to choose from that we have now taken a copy of the menu back to our accommodation so we can decide hat we want to eat before we get there. There is never... More

I try to eat at Nervous Nellie's whenever I get to the Fort Myers area. In early December, I stopped in on a Friday evening and enjoyed another excellent meal. It was a beautiful evening with warm breezes (yes, in December!). The ale-battered shrimp and cod basket was full of tasty plump gulf shrimp, and flaky fried cod. Highly recommended.... More

We waited 10 minutes and were not even approached so we left. Can't speak about the food and don't care. We won't be back.

It is fun to watch the boats go under the bridge and to go out on the dock to look for manatees. The bue cheese burger was excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. We will go back.
