Super place to people watch

I stopped here a couple times. Once to grab a bite to eat and have drinks. Another time to get out of the rain for drinks. Great outdoor seating to people watch. Food was good, pretty good selection.

This was our very first stop after dropping our luggage off at the hotel, and it really hit the spot after a long day of travel. It was a nice introduction to Fort Myers Beach. The drinks were okay (not very strong) but the food was superb. I had the fish tacos and my wife had the shrimp tacos. Both... More

We didn't have a meal here, because we had already dinner, but as we were walking we heard the music and loved it so much we had to stop in to check it out. The guy playing was Phil Oxford and we loved everything he played - he was amazing. So we had some drinks and stayed. We went back... More

The food is simple in presentation and delicious. Price point is great regarding the area and high beach attraction. Whether cocktails or a full blown meal, this place has an ambiance , staff and menu that should be experienced. I am a big fan of Leroys Fish burrito with mango.

We tried the taco salad with a side of Jell-O shots!! Yummy on both accounts. The salad was huge and the chops and salsa competed the meal. Will definitely stop by here again.

We sat outside in the back in a downpour to eat here. Go every year. Lucy in the Sky burrito was excellent. Service was satisfactory at it's best. I think the guy was fairly new. Will continue to visit for that burrito.

Tried this restaurant for lunch and drinks. The drinks were excellent and the food was very good. They said nothing is friend and everything is freshly made. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and fries. For the fries being oven baked they were crispy and very good, the sandwich was good also. We sat outside, they were setting up to... More

Came in for some relief from the beach for some lunch. Being on the beach was about all this place had going for it. The kid behind the bar was nice. Food wasn't great and the drinks left something to be desired. Manager had an argument with an IT guy while we were there behind the bar in front of... More

What a lively bar and restaurant. We visited around 9pm. Lots of lights and atmosphere. The singer was really good and several customers were dancing. A lovely, lively place to be. Food was tasty and drinks reasonably priced. A really nice spot to watch the sky go from dusk to dark. Definitely worth another visit.
