Nice atmosphere

Food was good. Server was friendly and efficient. Good choice of entrees. Went for lunch and had a grouper sandwich, blackened. Location is very quiet with nice views of the water. Will look forward to going again, maybe by boat next time.

This was the first restaurant we stopped at during our vacation. The parking was tricky to get into and very dangerous getting out of. My husband backed out while I looked for oncoming traffic. You walk into the bar area which can be a bit intimidating for outsiders. We sat outside which was nice on a Florida afternoon. Fish was... More

A friend who moved to Cape Coral around 26 years ago came to lunch with us. Nothing fancy here but, the food was good and we took pictures at the end of the boat dock. I enjoy being able to eat and look out at the water.

Sit outside and enjoy the good food and good music. The menu is not huge but what they make they make well! The staff is also wonderful. Take a peek at the monster alligator inside!

Stopped here for lunch with friends. It was a pleasant surprise once inside. The bar and restaurant gives you the feeling that you are at the beach. The location is perfect and so is the staff. Our waiter couldn't have been more friendly or accommodating. Everyone enjoyed their meal and view.

We are regulars at Bert's, particularly on fish fry Friday's. Love the people there, the roadhouse atmosphere, great views and really good food. The bar area is classic old Florida bar, with a pool table, rough cob restrooms and stools. Further inside you get an alleyway for some side tables leading to the interior dining. This room is nothin' fancy,... More

Recently had lunch here. We were surprised that they had lunchtime entertainment which was a nice touch. The fish dip is worth the trip. And the homemade chips are wonderful.

Service is always good for a laid back place. Great Cheese steaks love the fries too! Shrimp baskets are yummy too! Great place to enjoy some music and watch the fish jumping on the water. Good Old Place in Matlatcha

if you visit Bert's once a day. Awful parking, very cold beer. Sometimes crowed, and great burgers. But as long as you are parked and you're part of the crowd -- have a beer and a burger and enjoy yourself! Never met a barmaid I didn't like.

CHEAP pitchers of beer Keep in mind the only serve beer, and wine and soft drink/juices, no hard liquor. There is live music, dophin sitings on the deck are not uncommon .Friendly service and a nice way to spend an hour or two
