“Waterfront entertainment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon to listen to Deb & the Dynamics- a local blues band that I always look to find playing in the Ft Myers/Pine Island area when I visit. I order shrimp and a margarita and both were delicious and the price was fair. I sat outside on the deck- it's huge and overlooks the back bay with all the area shrimp boats at dock.

“Poor quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Food was not good for the price. Worst Mojito I've ever had. Go figure. Service was good and the waiter was personable.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A great restaurant on Fort Myers Beach. The food was great. Definitely try the spicy shrimp. We ate on the patio overlooking the shrimp fleet. Will go back here.

“Awesome Conch Chowder”

Food was great! Atmosphere was nice, on the water, old wood decor. You feel like you're a character in the book!

“Best of Ft. Myers beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Wonderful waterfront atmosphere. Fantastic island fare. Strongly recommend the taquitos with pesto dipping sauce and the Shrimp and Grits. Their seafood dishes are caught and prepared fresh, some of the best in SW Florida. If you're looking for lighter fare their flat breads are good too. But no matter what you try you MUST leave room for drunken parrot carrot cake. Huge slice enough for the whole table. Great Service, Excellent food, and by far one of my most favorite places to dine in Florida.
