“Better places to eat in Fort Myers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2010

Not the best place to eat. The food was just ok. I had the prime rib, mashed potato and green beans on a saturday night. The prime rib was bland, had no seasoning and had a lot of fat. The price was reasonable for the ok food. I guess this is why it is a sports bar. I would not recommend to go to Shoeless Joes for a great meal, but for a beer you will be fine. The atmosphere was also ok. There are better locations to eat.

“Management is just plain rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2009

We had been going to this restaurant for several years and liked the food. However, we went to watch a sproting event and have dinner. There were many patrons watching this event and nearby was a small group of 20 somethings having fun. Now when their team did something good, they would cheer. By no means were they lound or obnoxious, just fans. The general manager was at the restuarant that day and instructed the manager to tell those people to keep it down!!! this is a sports bar. Folks come there to cheer their team on with other patrons.
In addition, we had a problem with our bill and the manager came over to discuss, and then the general manager came and THREW $5 at us to cover the discrepancy. So we, the others in our party, and the 20 somethings assured them we were never going back. I recommend none of you do either. No one should be treated like that.

“Fun sports bar and the food is just fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2008

We make a habit of going to Shoeless Joe's at least two or three times a season. The food is really good and there's lots of it. We have always found that the atmosphere is that of a typical sports bar with lots of TV coverage of major events. The service has always been excellent and the wait staff invariably friendly. The appetizers are so huge that they may be shared with a table full of people. Try it; you'll surely enjoy it as we have for the last six years.
