“Water side lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Stopped by here after a morning on Fort Myers beautiful beach for a bite of lunch. This restaurant and Inn is "under the bridge" on the north end of the island and very convenicently located within a short walk to the "Broadway" tourist area.
This place has been there for quite awhile and after we ordered and ate the baby back ribs and the stuffed grouper we were very happy with our choice of a place to eat lunch.
I'll be back there!

“Amazing view , a mouse and over priced meals !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Been to Matanzas loads of times love the view but menu never changes. They have a new menu so we thought we would give it a try .we where seated outside by our server who told us there was a mouse running behind our table , we saw it !! my friends wife hates mice so I saw there was a free table by the water. I told the front of house about the mouse and if the table was free she replied I Duno in a uninterested voice . We moved our own silverware to new table . Had a carafe of Chablis at a great price . The onion rings are amazing . Our mains New York strip good , Grouper very small , chicken dish very dry . All mains where top dollar and not good value compared to Nervous Nellys just down the road . All in all we had , amazing onion rings , good value Chablis , a fantastic view but next time we will go to Nervous Nellys it's a great place and great value and the same view .

“We'll come back here next time we are in Ft Myers Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

It was our last night of a wonderful week in Ft Myers Beach and we were looking for a comfortable casual place with good food. We chose to sit inside because of the heat and had a window table with a nice view of the docks. I had the Rum battered coconut shrimp and my wife had the blackened Mahi Mahi. both were great! the Mahi Mahi was especially tender and flavorful. Myriam was a very good server as well.

The margaritas were also good, as was the glass of house Chardonnay which my wife had.

This was a very honest restaurant, not one that was trying to be something more than it had the potential to be.

we'll be back!

“Great view & Yummy Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

The outdoor seating was fabulous. There was also indoor overlooking the outside. The food was better than most of the places we found near or in Times Square area. Would go again.

“A MUST VISIT...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Love, love, love the spinach salad and chowder; but, every thing is always wonderful. They also have a fantastic upper deck with music. Watch for when Jo List and Mary Winner are playing/singing... You definitely won't be disappointed. Mantanzas Inn is a local favorite. Everyone goes out of their way for you and it's a beautiful setting right on Estero Bay.
