Looking for an authentic English breakfast? This is the only place in Ft. Myers you will find it! How about a draft Boddington's Ale? This is the place mate. Great vibes, friendly staff. Have enjoyed breakfast, dinner and evening snacks here; never disappointed!

Where to start? The restaurant itself is quaint and has a cool vibe and the Bloody Mary was quite good! There were only three other tables filled inside but many patrons at the outside tables. The waitresses ran back and forth and I could tell they were understaffed but we were in no rush. Our waitress (Aubrey?) was awesome, she... More

First, the food was good. Second, the service was horrible. We had to wait to be acknowledged when we entered the cafe because most of the staff were gathered around the hostess and her cellphone. She finally looked up and said to seat ourselves even though the sign said wait to be seated. Finally she came to our table and... More

Recommended by the Indigo hotel, we had breakfast from the British range, called something like the Royal Eggs Breakfast. It involved scrambled egg and smoked salmon. However, the scrambled egg turned out to be omelette! When I asked for scrambled egg, the omelette was brought back, after being cut up and the server said she did not think the two... More

Big fan of the pot roast, mash potatoes and gravy. Black and blue salad, new item on menu, is very good.

We really like the food at United! Everything we've ordered has been great! Basically a bar inside, usually crowded. The smoked salmon breakfast entries are wonderful! Bottomless Mimosas on Sunday's!

Great concept and so thrilled with the remodeling. Food was very good. Able to watch multiple sports at the same time. And the staff was so welcoming. Couldn't ask for a better atmosphere. Music was great too!

The service was great. That is the only positive thing I can say. I should have known better. This was the only restaurant in the downtown that had open seats. Now I know why. A very limited menu . We both just had sandwiches and they were both not even ok. I don't remember writing a bad review.

Had the pot roast, mash potato with gravy and peas. Melted in my mouth. Outstading. Will be going back to try other items. Dinner was $12.95
