Was ok

It has a new name now I think...had Pierside Grill and famous Blowfish Bar on the sign. We stopped here for drinks after spending some time at the beach. I had a frozen drink, it was pretty good. But, the service was very slow. It was not very busy during the time we were there and it took about... read more

every time I'm in Fort Myers (at least twice a year) I visit this place for a cold beer and a Rubin. Always treated nice.

Don't waste your time, we wondered in looking for a place on the water that we could have some drinks and light food. Place is a tourist trap, bartender was lousy, place was filthy, couldn't finish our drink fast enough to get out there.

We had dinner here. Great location. Good food. I had steak and my husband had fish. Resonably priced. Frozen drinks were good too.

Right on the gulf, next to a great pier. Cute restaurant, inside & out! Great burgers - Lots of fish on the menu - daughter had Blackened Mahi Mahi & loved it. I ordered the Seafood Platter - clams were rubbery -shrimp OK and whitefish was nothing special. Key Lime Pie - delicious and only $3.99

First time I was here in Feb 2014, then came back in May 2015 - this place keeps its promise to serve good food! The most attracting thing to me is location - first line near the ocean. You can watch kids playing, birds hunting fish, sunset, tide... Everything you came for.... The staff is friendly, serving great selection of... More

One of a handful of places actually on the beach. The food has always been very good. They offer outdoor & indoor seating. The birds can get a little annoying but they try to keep them away (had one snatch a fry out of my hand the first time I had eaten there but I'm an animal lover so they... More

Popular restaurant on the beach, near the pier. My husband loved the conch fritters. Specialty drinks were amazing!

Ok, this is not a place for a gourmet. But it is not a tourist trap (someone said so). It is a nice (but busy) place to sit outside. Service was quick, live-music not to loud. House-Wines are cheap and ok (see above: not for a gourmet). We have been there two times. Burgers have been just ok, fries a... More

I would have liked to give Pierside 3.5 because it is a nice place. Location hard to beat. Beautiful views of the beach and pier as well as sunsets. Service was very good . Tiff (restaurant and the bar)and Luke were both great servers. My only gripe here is the food really. Ate here a couple of times and it... More
