Looking for a quick lunch we found The Eatery by Ryan. We were greated by our server with a big smile and seated at a nice clean table. The staff are all courteous and help each other. Ryan is in the kitchen and preparing all...the meals. Congratulations Ryan, you nailed it. Great placeMore

We found the Eatery thanks to trip advisor. The full breakfast and lunch menu was extensive. They willingly made a substitution for me. The service was quick and the food excellent. We will certainly be back!

We were flying out on Saturday afternoon and needed a place to eat lunch between checking out of our hotel and catching our flight. This restaurant is close to the RSW airport, and it had a good variety on the menu, so we thought we'd...give it a try. They have breakfast all day, so you could've gotten waffles, French toast, eggs, etc. or you could've had traditional lunch items like sandwiches. We all opted for eggs, potatoes, toast and bacon. The potatoes are chunked up, like home fries, but were very good. The eggs were a little spicy actually, I think they use seasoning salt. The toast was nice and thick which was a welcome surprise. The eating area has very tight seating, but there is also an open, outside patio area as well. We enjoyed our meal, glad we made it a stop before we left.More

1st time visiting this spot & my only regret is not having ordered sooner. Place is small but efficient. Great food, friendly staff & fast service. The Cheesesteak sandwiches are very delicious! Had the Naples & tried the Philly Whiz too, both great! If you...like Cheesesteak sandwiches, this place is Cheesesteak Heaven!!More

The eatery is a must try for lunch in Fort Myers. Being from PA, I felt right at home in The Eatery with all of the Philadelphia sports signs. The Rhino cheesesteak was excellent. Make sure to try the chipotle mayo!

Have been wanting to try this place for a while and finally had a chance to stop in today. Great food, reasonable prices and fun atmosphere. Would definitely recommend! Only thing that could have made it better was a children's menu, but they were accommodating...with ordering a smaller portion for us.More

We love this place! We’ve been several times since discovering it and every time has been great. Our toddler is made to feel welcome by the owner and the staff and the food is always great. We really love the Belgian waffles and French toast....Oh and the bacon is amazing!More

The first time we ate here we thought it was amazing. It wasn’t ver busy and the food was wonderful. The service was very slow and the food was nothing like the first time. I got the buffalo cheesesteak the same as the first visit....It didn’t taste the same as the first visit at all and the macaroni salad was dried out. My husband said his breakfast sandwich didn’t taste good at all. The women’s restroom didn’t have a door handle so you had to use the men’s restroom. It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in a few days. The trash was over flowing on the floor and the toilet was disgusting. You experience will depend on how busy it is and who’s doing the cooking.More

The owner should be ashamed of himself. I went there to get a take out for lunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was busy and there was some confusion. No problem, these things happen. Right before i was getting my order the owner, Ryan, went...on a expletive rampage on his female, coed waiting staff about orders being wrong. If this lasted a few seconds that is one thing, but he went on for minutes. There are young kids and women in the restaurant and this was of no concern to him. I was so aggravated that i told the waitress that i would pay for my food (without taking the food with me) and leave with no intent of ever coming back. He continued his expletive tirade and i confronted him about his behavior. He was incredulous about what just happened and acted like his behavior was not a problem. I hope he gets his act together and this type of behavior was just a one time melt down. As far as i am concerned, i will never walk in that place again and i hope others there today will take the same approach. Ryan, grow up.More
