Local seafood goodness

In an area like FMB one ought to expect good seafood, and CBHG doesn't disappoint. Fast friendly service, well-prepared and tasty entrees simply presented, reasonable prices (particularly if you arrive for the "early" menu), and a fairly diverse and properly priced selection of adult beverages... read more

One of the best Steaks I have had ! Warm rolls to start with and the salad bar was great. Not the cheapest in town but a great meal overall. A very popular spot so expect to wait as they don't take reservations for parties of 5 or less.

In every respect this is a great place to eat. We have been numerous times and love it. We had prime rib which came out as ordered and the salad bar is wonderful. Fish is great too.

This place has got a totally awesome salad bar that includes not only great salad fixings but also incredible pasta & marshmallow concoctions. Both my husband and I had the beef filets and they were the best I've ever had. You could cut it with a butter knife. Also included were fresh hot rolls that were delicious. We wish this... More

We have kids so we called ahead to make reservations. We are glad we did because there was a long wait for walk ins. The food was good but the salad bar was fantastic. I was surprised to learn that the salad bar came with the kids' meals and my kids loved the salad and fresh fruit. We will return... More

Charley's Boathouse came highly recommended by friends but we didn't feel we got what we paid for. Although we loved the view of the water from our table, the food was average. They did have a great salad bar, but our entrees were a disappointment. I got shrimp and scallop scampi that was soggy and drenched in butter. My husband... More

If you are feeling nostalgic this is a great stop for you. This supper club will remind you of the Caddyshack days with wood paneling and low lighting. We fortunately were seated in a back room right in front of a window that overlooked the water. The room was quiet, and filled with a crowd of senior citizens. The large... More

The good - Logan, our server, was cheery and attentive. The bad - Our food was mediocre. My wife ordered the surf and turf, which was a small sirloin (not a filet) and a very small lobster tail entree for $35. Her baked potato was buried in sour cream, and the way it was plated was very unappetizing. I ordered... More

We had one of the best meals ever, from an incredible salad bar to great cocktails, and fantastic entrees. Definitely was worth a second visit during our short visit in Fort Myers Beach. Locals had recommended the restaurant and warned us that there could be a line to get into restaurant for early bird specials. For a special meal or... More
