Yum, there Yucatan shrimp tacos are to die for! And they also serve the best beach bread on the beach, in my opinion! I always order a late night snack here, while I listen to the live music! Great local bar that always makes me feel welcomed!

Had dinner here with some friends nice location and the food was average. Service was good but the portions were very small. I would recommend the oysters but both the grouper dinner and grouper sandwich were small and not worth $15.00

After too much sun we stopped by for a drink in the mid afternoon. Bartender friendly and attentive. Talked to some nice people and would try for lunch or dinner when we come back.

Rooftop deck nice. Service was excellent. Food and drinks good if you're looking for a casual place with fresh seafood, sandwiches and even good dessert.

Ordered the shrimp, cooked in tomatoes, garlic, and chilies. The shrimp were excellent, as were the oysters on the half shell.

Nice view from the upper deck. Our preferred place for watching people and having a nice time. Fresh mussels with lots of 'knoblauch' is a must - we recommend it!

We were having somewhat of a family get together at a beach house on Fort Myers Beach. My two brothers and I are all seniors and rarely get opportunities where all three of us are together. Since we all like the area, we booked a house on the beach for a week. Within walking distance are several very good restaurants.... More

A local couple recommended the beached whale and we're glad we listened.I had a fish sandwich,the fish was coated with corn flakes very tasty and well prepared my wife had a salmon dish that she said was very tasty and fresh. Don't forget to read about the history of the beached whale,quite interesting

Great service upstairs. Ordered mussels, flat bread and beer (99 cent). One of our favorite happy hours on the island.
