Food was great, the staff was friendly and the water-front view was spectacular! Our server was so polite and helpful with recommendations and letting us know of the special. Their extensive cocktail menu had great tropical offerings with PLENTY of rum in them and the...seafood dishes we had were some of the freshest we’ve ever had. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back again!More

We've been here several times and it's always fresh and very good. I only order grouper on the west coast and this place is my standard. I like the blackened seasoning and homemade tartar sauce. We saw manatees from the window overlooking the water. Go...over to Sweet Melissa's Ice Cream Shoppe after dinner and show them your Coconut Jack's receipt and you will get a discount.More

Beautiful restaurant and delicious food. We were staying in Ft. Myers beach and drive down for the evening. Great service. Highly recommend the calamari appetizer.

Dinner with a large group of 12. I called ahead to make a reservation but was told they just do first come, first served. That worried me a nit since we were a large group. The gentleman at the host stand greeted us and was...able to seat us all together very quickly. Our server took our drink orders quickly as well which was very much appreciated because it was hot outside and we were thirsty! Our group ordered a variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Everyone enjoyed the food. I heard good comments particularly about the grouper sandwiches and the ahi tuna. I was told the key lime pie was to die for. I personally enjoyed a coconut cream pie martini for dessert. Delish. We'll definitely return when in this area.More

I did a Google search for restaurants in the area, and Coconut Jack’s came up. It looked great on the menu and location. We went before 6pm as it was the 4th July holiday weekend. We were quite amused at the valet parking and were...happy to hand them our keys to park. It was already busy, but we managed to get a table outside on the waterfront. Our waitress came over promptly and took our drinks order. Then we chose appetisers and entrées. We had a quick look outside on the boardwalk, and our appetisers were waiting for us. At this point, we began to feel rushed. When it came to dessert, the waitress did not offer a menu, but said we could get 20% off with the voucher she gave us to get ice cream down the road. I didn’t want ice cream and asked what other desserts there were. The waitress took our order but apologised as she said they were very busy and were trying to encourage customers to eat desserts at the other place. We were given the check with our desserts and the waitress said she needed to do this. As she was a lovely waitress, I decided to tip her in cash. It wasn’t her fault that she was rushing us. And we tipped the valets too. All in all, we enjoyed our meal. The food was good. However, when you spend a fair amount of money, you don’t expect to be obviously rushed off your table. For this reason, we won’t return.More

This is a tourist trap. The menu has recently become very expensive and the food is not worth the cost There are better values in the area such as the Fish House. Was a much better a few years ago,

Just visited coconut jacks for a lunch with my family where we ordered two rounds of cocktails an appetizer and food, to which after all of that while waiting for food we were told we need to cover up, as we had just been at...the beach and were in swim suit tops and pants. We asked why we weren’t told this when we entered, to whichThe manager was absolutely terrible to us blaming the host and server and still not offering any type of condolence for the Poor treatment. The food was below average for their high price and the environment of this restaurant makes you want to leave immediately. Recommend to save yourself and your money and take it somewhere other than coconut jacks.More

The chief and I live close by, but the parking lot is always packed with tourists, but now that they are mostly gone, we took our wave runner and had a lovely experience. Someone helped us off the dock, and we sat outside. They have...a great drink menu and lots of apps, salads, baskets and entrees. Our server, Alicia, made it a wonderful experience. I had the grouper basket and it was delicious. The chief had a ceasar salad. We both had margaritas, and a fun experience. Will definitely be back.More

We visited today and had a lovely lunch, food was really good also the service. The real ball ache is the parking out front, a valet service. To park a car where it is not necessary. Only reason I could see was to give someone...a job which isn’t at all necessary and awaiting for a tip for doing nothing. We won’t be back.More

Pretty waterfront location under large tiki. A variety of menu items to choose from including tequila! He had the Ahi tuna and I the ribs. He loved his meal. Mine was tasty yet not tender or falling of the bone. Great friendly service from Rebecca....Cold brew and tasty margaritas. We’ll be back again. Oh and valet parking was a nice surprise!More

We took friends here for dinner because it's on the water. It's larger than I realized with a bunch of crabby people working there. The hostess started us of with a bang. She asked how many people, counted off the menus, walked to the table...and tossed them in the middle......... walked away. Then we waited while watching the woman who would wait on us run in circles! When she eventually waited on us she said "you've been waiting a long time, why not order drinks and your food and get it overwith". Alrighty then! Unfortunately we did that. I got my meal before my cocktail "the bar is backed up". One didn't get their cocktail but asked again and yes, was charged for 2. It went on like that...... and then she plunked the bill down and walked away. So we waited, and waited. Nothing like a nice piece of pie after a long wait! There seems to be a pattern here with the touristy restaurants. And it's not a good one.More
