The place is very inexpensive with specials everyday and nice waitresses. We are in our mid 50's but felt like we were teens compared to the rest of the diners. It really is a great place for older people, but the food is just okay. Not very flavorful. I won't be returning.

A very crowded place but they get you in and out fast! The food is great! I had the french toast all three times I was there! My husband had the ham and eggs special! It was super! The waitresses were very busy but had our order back in just a few minutes! We will be back again!

Went here with a friend who heartily recommended the food. We agree. Good, solid, stick-to-the-ribs food, along with good prices make this a hard-to-bear down home dining experience. Waitress was rather blah, but that didn't take away from the dinner that much. (Smile, girl!) This place seems to be a favorite of the locals and the snowbirds, for good reason,... More

Food was great, but not happy with server who argued with my mother when she brought her the wrong dish then tried to convince the rest of us that it was my mother's mistake and not hers. She did exchange her dish quickly for the correct meal and was otherwise friendly.

We go there occasionally, service is always pretty good, food is good, served hot, prices are very reasonable. Not a fancy place, but is clean, you might have to wait 15 minutes for a table, but well worth the wait. Definitely put it on your list.

Nothing exceptional -- burgers, salads, sandwiches -- but a good alternative to any typical fast food restuarant. It is within walking distance of the Hampton Inn and Suites.

The food is usually very good, the service is usually pretty good, the food comes out very fast, you get a lot, the prices are generally very good, the menu is huge.. Try to come off peak hours during season because it's extremely popular and they have a line out the door break, lunch and dinner.

When in Fort Myers ~ the Sunflower is always a favorite place to go for dinner. A very sweet family restaurant than never fails to give great service and wonderful meals. The daily specials are always a treat that also includes a glass of house wine if you like and a dessert as well. Go early for dinner, because the... More
