As a relatively new resident of Fort Myers Beach (2 years)it was surprising that we hadn't visited this Restaurant before as it is clearly a local favorite. So when we had guests to stay for a few weeks, we took a trip out there for lunch.
The waterside location is beautiful and we were all excited to see there were tables outside. Unfortunately, getting one was harder than it should have been and we were treated in a very stand-offish manner by the (decrepid) greeter. She didnt look up while she told us we would have to wait if we wanted a table outside or we could eat on the deck upstairs. This sounded fine so we ambled off to find it, only to be met by a young man (member of staff?) at the bottom of the stairs who told us it was all closed up 'up there' and there was' no view'because the blinds were closed.
We went back to the front desk only to find 3 other parties had been seated outside ahead of us. We spoke to the greeter again who told us we would have to put our names on the list and wait like anyone else. We felt distinctly uncomfortable.
When we eventually got a table, it was lovely, right by the waters edge. We ordered drinks and asked our waitress questions about the menu, which she answered in such an ill-mannered way you would have thought we were asking her to lend us money. When our drinks came, mine was wrong so I asked her to change it for me. She argued that the drink I had was 'the way they serve it here' and while I remonstrated politely with her that it wasnt the way I ordered it, she snatched the drink out of my hand while I was still talking and stormed off.
Fortunately, the food was good but our whole meal was spoilt by this waitress, who continued to intimidate us throughout the whole meal, ignore us when we tried to order more drinks etc. As we left, she even muttered to another member of staff in the bar as we walked past and they both stared at us. We couldnt wait to get out of there and, despite the location and the food being on the whole good, I doubt if I will step foot in the place again.
