Very good meal – I had the prime rib special (they have on a Sunday). Meat and veg were excellent – garlic mash was ok but nothing to write home about. My partner had the scallops with risotto – the scallops were excellent but the risotto was more like a rice pudding – that part very disappointing. We did share... More

We eat at this restaurant every year we travel to the beach. We have consistently excellent food and consistently poor service. We have been waited on by every waiter (they do not allow women to wait tables here, only bartend or hostess!?) and it is rare to find one who extends any sort of a service mentality or attitude. We... More

We arrived with a group of six without a reservation on a very busy evening. Was a bit unsure since it's in a strip mall with no view of the water. We were seated within 10 minutes and had a very friendly waiter, Tomash. Had a great night and all of us were very pleased with our meal choices. We... More

The hostess did not give us a welcome greeting when we arrived as she informed us that it was close to closing time. However, our waiter made up for her rudeness. He was a absolute delight. He was helpful and polite. Our food was great and we can't wait to go back.

Although it's been a few months, I've eaten here several times and was always quite impressed. This is one of only two restaurants on the island with a slightly more upscale feel (the other one being Bayfront Bistro) and it's worth spending a little extra to get away from the greasy touristy restaurants in Times Square. I've had the scallops,... More

My wife and I was visiting Fort Myers Beach and read the reviews so decided to eat here. We were very disappointed. We arrived and waited 1/2 hour for a table which isn't bad. We was seated at 7 o'clock and waited 15 minutes for a waiter, we ordered a drink and the Shrimp Scampi appetizer. We was served the... More

We dine there each time we are in Ft Myers Beach. There was an error with the reservation that was quickly and graciously corrected. Food and service were top notch. Great local beer on tap and the ribs were delicious. Be sure to make reservations, as this restaurant is always busy. We look forward to dining there again next year!

There is only 1 road into and out of Fort Myers Beach so it can get very congested. We used Trip Advisor to find a place away from that congestion. We had a hard time locating it because it was tucked away in the corner of a strip mall. When we pulled into the lot we thought it would be... More

We have been regulars here since they opened and it keeps getting better. Always make a reservation. We have probably tried every appetizer, salad, and dinner they offer. Our favorites are the ahi tuna dinner, and filet, but we usually order the chef's creative special for that day. The tuna steak is my favorite on menu entree. It is always... More

My husband is still talking about his pork chop dinner. It was great and my scallops were very good. We had a group of 10! The service was good although I felt a bit rushed. Thomas was our waiter. I would go back there again, but slow things down.
