I used to live in Ft. Myers, but had never been to this restaurant. My husband and I happened upon it during a week long stay and absolutely loved it! They have roof top seating which is great for people watching, the service and food is amazing and I can't wait to go back!

Arrived for our week long stay and our trip was over to Fort Myers to visit the Beached Whale and to sample (again) their amazing ribs. Now this is the 5 visit to the area and everything the ribs are a looked forward to highlight. If you are looking for crisp linen and a "dining" experience then this won't be... More

Good food and nice atmosphere. Service was really good and attentive. I enjoyed the older seafood restaurant look with the dark wood furniture and bar.

Sitting outside you can watch folks walking down San Carlos which is always a trip. I admit I have only had burgers here. The reason is that they are never disappointing. My wife has tried other dishes and enjoyed all of them. Try it, it's not expensive either.

Great place for a quick bite and brew. i had the blackened grouper taco and hubby had the fried shrimp. Both were very good but sitting on the rooftop makes it. Wonderful view of the Gulf. But hubby had a hard time getting up the stairs so probably will not go back. Maybe to the downstairs dining room.

At the Beached Whale for Happy Hour. Great food and drink but our server Kat was the best. She said it was her first night on top outside. WOW! She gave awesome service and was a delight. Thank you. John, Therese & Evie

We visited the restaurant at night with children and we were very well accommodated. Our waitress, Tiffany, was patient with the kids (and adults) and very gracious and helpful. I ordered the coconut shrimp which were huge and scrumptious. Ask for the Whale Ale as well. It has a maple flavor, but not at all sweet. It was on special... More

First of all I enjoy going to a place that stays open late and also still serves food late. Crunchy grouper sandwich and coleslaw always perfect. Calamari app great. Coconut shrimp sauce could be more interesting. Lobster rolls always excellent. Roof was perfect as usual!
