The food was surprisingly good, the service excellent and the decor, well, let's say funky! It's a dive bar and it is what you would expect. The scenery makes you want to sit outside and enjoy the day - seriously, the food is good.

Fun place to go and eat outside. Food is just ok, and I wouldn’t want to sit inside, but being on the deck is pleasant, especially when there’s entertainment. Have been there a couple different times now and don’t feel I need to go back.

Kind of rustic, plastic silverware, usually busy. I had the blackened grouper dinner which was excellent. Others in my group had mahi-mahi, shrimp, all good. Service a bit slow. I'd go back for the grouper.

Here's a funky bar on the water with live music and pretty decent food. Service is decent. The folks in back room near the water have a good time with the live music, which it appears they have plenty of here. If you're looking for...More

The previous reviews are misleading. Just left Bert’s and will not return. The atmosphere is typical Pine Island,Florida. The service from our waiter Mike was excellent. The beer was cold and reasonably priced. The food however was not the greatest. Really didn’t have a lot...More
