Love the daily specials. Really affordable. On Monday it is BOGO on clam chowder, a bowl is very filling, and it is really well made. Haddock basket and baked haddock are superb, always correctly cooked. Rack of ribs on Sunday, WOW! Fresh oysters, I mean...really fresh. Have not had a bad experience. No, it’s not on the water, but between the food and we’ll trained wait staff, it’s our go to place.More

My wife and I visited Cape Coral for a 10 day trip and stumbled on the Twisted Lobster. We ate there 4 times in ten days, only because we found it so late in our trip. I give this restaurant a 5 star rating because...it won't allow me to rate it higher! The seafood was unbelievable, totally frest and absolutely delicious. The clam chowder, one of my very favorites, was simply to die for! I make excellent clam chowder, but this made me go home and experiment with my recipe to try and match theirs. Simply wonderful. And the atmosphere is so cordial and friendly. Come as you are, eat inside or outside, dress as casual as you like...This is like eating at home except you have a master chef preparing your food. This is THE BEST dining experience we have ever had for a casual restaurant. My wife and I are moving to the area, and this will become a regular stomping ground for us. Simply one of the best dining experiences ever.More

Great Oysters, fried clams are priced right and delicious. Moved into Cape Coral today and will be at Twisted Lobster tomorrow. Hope our friends make it.

My wife and I dined at Twisted Lobster twice in three days because we were so impressed after the first visit. It is a very small operation with about 12 or 13 tables, usually creating a wait list during peak hours. It's a no-frills restaurant;...certainly not fine dining. But the service is very good from a young wait staff, and the food is delicious. What makes it even better is the prices are still reasonable. In this area, seafood has gotten very expensive, even though we are only a few miles from the Gulf. Most restaurants have nearly priced themselves out of the market, but not this one. The value of their meals, especially their daily specials, is outstanding. We will make this our go-to seafood restaurant.More

The clam chowder was terrific...so I thought we were in for a good night...the hot lobster roll was disappointing. There was very little lobster meat, couldn't taste the drawn butter...the french fries were just average...They could do better...

Had fried whole belly clams, clam chowder, and lobster rolls. Not quite what you would get in Maine, but pretty darn good and the price was right .

We go to this restaurant every time we are in Cape Coral. The food is simply AMAZING! We love the raw oysters and if you go on Saturday, they are a dollar each. The service is great. You might have to wait a little while...to get in, but it is so worth the wait.More

We have been doing take out the past 2 years since Covid. The dining area is now crowded as previous to Covid. It only seats about 54 people so there is a long wait at prime dinner times in season. The full rack of baby...back ribs is a deal for $8 on weekends & $11 for eat in with 2 sides. You can't beat the filet & lobster tail for $17, twin lobster tails $17 or 3 tails $25, lobster rolls to go $12 or ribs & shrimps $13. Check out their web site. The lobster, ribs & filet are always great. never over done.More

WONDERFUL RESTAURANT! First of great service and great ice tea. I had a cup of the clam chowder. Best clam chowder of my life. So flavorful. We got the 2l lobsters special, with corn and slaw.

Driving over from Fort Myers, during semi rush hour, is too long of a drive. Then to wait over an hour for a table is a bit too much! Have to pass for the future

I’m not sure probably from Florida. Everyone said it tasted good though. I don’t personally eat lobster so I wouldn’t know
