“Lively place, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Despite its name it is not a brewery so don't go expecting craft brews on tap (even the one beer that is brewed for them comes in a bottle). But it's a fun place to get bar food and drinks if you don't mind a busy place. We were there in the evening and there was (pretty good) live music adding to the atmosphere. We had a large group but they found us a table without too much of a wait and our server took very good care of us. Food was good and portions were generous.

“YUMMY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went back for the third time. I love this place. Great service, low key, delish food. I highly recommend the po' boys OR the smoked fish dip. Both were amazing and well priced.

“It's bar food, it's good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

One of our favorite places to unwind after a great day at the beach.. The unwinding doesn't take very long. The drinks are okay and the food is good, the oysters are great

“Laid back lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We spotted this place while passing and popped in here with another couple for lunch and a drink while on a brief stayover in Fort Myers Beach.
It is a casual open sided bar/restaurant and was busy but with a good buzz. We are not too familiar with this type of place, so maybe it could have been the novelty, but we really enjoyed it. Funky decoration, good place to people watch, and at our visit, good interaction with other cusotmers.
We all had tasty dishes and I had what was probably the best grouper sandwich in my visits in Florida. Fresh, thick and perfectly cooked. Service was quick and very friendly and their own brand beer is well worth a try.

“Cold beers, great scallops!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Not exactly high on ambiance but SOB has staff that pays attention to their customers. It was busy , but not insane and we still got a cold one pretty quick. Had some of the garlic scallops... hmmm hmmm good!
