We wandered in on the 23rd based on some local recommendations. We loved the location and maybe they had a bad night, but we waited over an hour for a basic grouper sandwich and shrimp tacos. The menu has a note in it for patrons to be patient because the food is made to order. How many other restaurants don’t... More

Thank god for Calypso Magic because he is the only reason we keep coming back to this place. He is a true entertainor! If only the waitress Erica had a better attitude. She never once came back to the table to ask if we needed refills on our drinks. We weren't even finished with our meal and she handed us... More

Stopped in while waiting for dog to be groomed. Laid back place with friendly service, nice menu. On the water, will go back several times.

My son and I had stopped at Berts while boating with friends a year ago. He insisted that if we were ever back in the area that we return. So it was fitting that while we were in Florida for Thanksgiving week which just happened to be his 18th birthday, we made a family trip to Bert's to satisfy his... More

This place has been here forever. Its history, printed on the menu, says it was once a brothel. SIts right out over the water with a fantastic view. The burgers are above average. Much of the food is fried, but grilled or blackened are usually options. They have a Friday night all-you-can-eat fried fish special. The real secret about the... More

Inside, outside, water view, pool table, band, gift shop...there's something for everyone. Food is seafood themed - try the fish dip - and just average, but the friendly atmosphere and good bar make Bert's a fun place to be on a Saturday night. Try to get there in time for the turtle races!

I always check for packed parking lots first when choosing a place to eat, well.....Bert's was so packed, we had to park across the street, which was also fine as Bert's owns a great Gallery Gift shop there. Lot's of great deals. We were welcomed into the Bar & Grill with ease and promptly seated. Beers were ice cold, and... More

Bert's is a "must visit" when in Matlacha. Casual, great fish dishes, unique dockside dining, says "Matlacha" in a wonderful, fun atmosphere!

Had drinks and appetizers there which were good. Place always seems to have a crowd there. Sat outside and watched the pelicans dive for fish. Service was excellent. Nice place where locals hang out
