I ate here midweek in October. Very lovely place with a sit down bar, a fresh fish, lobster, and shrimp display an an indoor and outdoor seating. My martini was very dry and the service was helpful and fast. The dinner was great. Best of all was the multi-million dollar view of the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico. This... More

Right on the beach just south of the crazy section in Fort Myers Beach. Great views, service and seafood/steaks. Happy hour from 4-6 was a pleasant surprise which explains why the bar is always buzzing.

This was our first visit to Fresh Catch Bistro, which was recommended by a Ft. Myers resident & friend who claimed it as her favorite place to dine in the Fort Myers area. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has a nice outdoor covered area where vinyl shades are rolled down on cool evenings, supplemented by space heaters. It was... More

Pricey. Excellent, large oysters on the half shell. Delious freshly baked bread. Creme brûlée excellent. Prime rib just average. Clam chowder good. Good and non intrusive service and involved management. Lovely sunset view from the covered deck fining area but very noisy party on the beach below took away from the atmosphere.

My husband said that that the oysters in the oyster sashimi were possibly the best he'd ever had. The view at sunset was spectacular. The service was great, and the manager came by to check in with us. We were even brought a complimentary anniversary dessert. Even the coffee was remarkably good. We'll definitely return.

Went for a family dinner over holiday vacation. Service was prompt and efficient. Food was very good. And the view is one of the best on the beach.

This is probably the best restaurant in Fort Myers Beach. The flavours of the food are amazing, particularly the Bistro Salad. We travelled there and back on the tram from our hotel (Best Western Beach Resort). This meant there was no need for a taxi - though there is parking available. We sat outside and enjoyed the view as we... More

If you plan on using their beach for a wedding (or any other event) don't waste your time. I had the reservation booked along with a back up location in their "spare room," and a reception for 15 afterward. Well, I emailed them 3 or 4 months after booking to confirm, and there had been a personnel change (which no... More

Easy drive from main part of downtown, easy parking, they take reservations. Restaurant is right on the Beach. Nice interior atmosphere, with some outside deck seating. Food was overall good. Service was fine, but they clearly rushed to turn tables over for next seating. Despite that, I would go back. Bacon scallops appetizer was good. The seared grouper was poor... More

We were looking for a nice quiet spot to have a good dinner while enjoying a beautiful sunset and that is exactly what we found here at Fresh Catch. We had made reservations and were seated at a corner window perfect for viewing the beach and sunset. Our waitress was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. If you are... More
