We ordered bam bam shrimp- they were really good only came with 6. Clams were also very good. Dave was our server, very nice, a little slow but let's be honest who cares the atmosphere is so nice and no one is in a hurry so it was perfectly fine. Most of us had grouper basket for dinner, excellent. Overall... More

This was the perfect place for lunch after our morning jetski tour. Love the colors, decoration and food. The kids meal was served on a frisbee with the fish house label.

The service was extremely slow. The server couldn't care less if we had what we needed. In fact, we had our food for 10 minutes before we could get anyone's attention to bring is some silverware!! The food was expensive and tasteless. The only good thing about this place is the location.

We visited The Fish House for the first time after reading Jean Le Boeuf's recommendation in the News-Press. We stopped in for a late lunch and were seated immediately on the patio overlooking the water. This restaurant reminded us of an old favorite of ours Shuckers, a North Fort Myers staple that is no longer in business. Hidden away and... More

What a hopping place! It was a busy place and for good reason! Right at the marina, harborside, this place had yummy food. I enjoyed my meal here and would return. Prepare for a wait, but if you can nab a seat or two at the bar for food, enjoy the dance at you watch them prepare food and drinks... More

The fish house is fun. The blackened shrimp tacos are delicious. The line-ups are long and I noticed on our second visit that the logistics were off. Empty tables were waiting to be cleared while there were lots of people waiting. Most people prefer the covered patio space, but my fave is the funky booths inside. Love the beach feel.

We visited the Fish House twice during our stay at the beach. There is usually a long wait so it is best to go early. I love their lobster roll, and my husband the fish basket..both great. It is great to look out on the lovely boats in the marina.

The restaurant sits at the Marina so the venue is nice. There always seemed to be line-ups when we'd walk by so we thought we'd try it. Arriving early (around 5:00 p.m.) for dinner we did not have to wait for a table, also it was a coolish, windy evening which may have helped in securing a table without a... More

Sneaky location behind the Santini Marina Plaza Shopping Center with both indoor and outdoor seating on the back waters of Estero Bay. The ahi tuna was superb! Loved the fried shrimp dinner and their coconut shrimp with their very own special accompanying dipping sauce was excellent. I don't hesitate to say it is the very best ever!!! Expect it to... More

The wait staff was friendly and it's not a fancy place. Hubby had the grouper and I had delicious scallops. Worth a visit.
