“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Loved the location, the view, the service, the food (1 stuffed shrimp platter, 1 grilled grouper platter). Ordered a pizza for take-out a couple nights later--soooo good! Looking forward to returning on our next trip to Fort Myers Beach.

“Great fresh Grouper and fantastic service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Great Fresh grouper in both Tacos and snadwiches! Terry was a fantastic server on both our visits! A table on the Deck overlooking the beach is a great spot for a meal!

“Grouper rueben, who would have thought?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We just got to our hotel within walking distance of Junkanoo and were in search for drinks and dinner. My husband ordered the fried grouper rueben sandwich with sweet potato fries ($14.99). What a huge piece of fried fish laid on a bed of coleslaw, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and bun, so big he ate it with a knife and fork. I was not as hungry so I order the Tuna Carpaccio on the dinner starter menu (see picture). Overall, it was good and there was plenty but I needed the wasabi and pickled seafood to mask this funky smell and the fact the tuna was a 'luke-warm' temp that felt like they'd sat outside too long. I guess if it was really bad i wouldn't have eaten it and no, I did not get sick later! This is as close to sushi as I will get so maybe it was a texture thing, I just didn't think at was as good as I have had elsewhere. Even early in the evening the place was hopping with a full deck of diners and a bar of drinkers. I would recommend this place if you're looking to be a round a lot of people, a nice view of the water and an afternoon drink.

“Gorgeous location, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

In a pinch, this will do for AA quick lunch (not sure about dinner) but the salads were just ok...not overly creative...French fries were "blah", shrimp was tasty. Beautiful view and ok service, but mediocre food.

“Great for Dog Lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

You can bring your dog(s) and eat outside in the back facing the water! I brought mine and had a good hamburger/fries/drink while gazing at the waves. Dogs on leash are allowed on Ft Myers beach, so we took a long walk afterwards. My pups even cooled their paws in the surf. A very enjoyable late afternoon. In the summer, I will go in with the pups. Can't wait!
