Trying to be something their not, Basa fish? Oyster Rockefeller had a taste that I have never had & I have had several places. The tropical salad, seared tuna was good. I am trying to stay positive about this spot, but it needs some work.

This is a really fun bar/restaurant in the Times Square area of Ft Myers Beach. There is absolutely nothing fancy about this bar . It is a place for pitchers of beer and bar food although they have some really good mixed drinks too. Grouper sandwiches are good, nachos are tasty. The rooftop bar is just the place to chill.

Had a nice relaxing dinner on the rooftop after a day in the sun. Grouper sandwich was very tasty, as was the Cuban. Huge side salad and the conch chowder was good, spicy. Matthew, the bartender was friendly and attentive.

good service. pitchers of beer and cocktails. cobb salad is fantastic. philly cheese steak (they give it it's own name) is always my wife's favorite. other items in the past have always been good. has a really nice beach feel and a very good staff.

This place was exactly what we were looking for! The ambience was exactly what you would want for a bar on the beach: great live music, decor, seafood, and a delicious tropical salad. The service was excellent as well. We would definitely go back here!

Live bands in the downstairs bar every night. Fantastic food! Both the servers and bartenders are extremely attentive and friendly. The rooftop bar offers great views of the beach, people walking the shops, and sunsets. Highly recommended!

I thought since it was owned by the same people as Doc Fords it would be excellent. It didn't quite stand up to the expectation. The coconut shrimp was miniscule. The Lobster roll was great. the Fish and chips I had was delicious but I think it sat for a while. The sweet potato fries were only slightly warmer than... More

We were on a 2 week holiday at FMB and kept meaning to have a meal in The Beached Whale...a great location and always looked popular. We finally managed to have dinner there and it lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We had a fantastic table upstairs overlooking FMB. We had coconut shrimp to start followed by the grouper...

What's not to like? The beer is $5 a picture - or $1 a glass, great chicken wings - and excellent service. It starts at 3 pm, goes until 5 or 6. We went twice, only complaint was it that it was hard to get a seat at 4:30 but the next day we were there at 3 and sat... More
