What a fun place to share eats & drinks with friends. Downtown location offers that cosmopolitan atmosphere and Karioke night is always a blast. Good food, great drinks, great service, but skip deserts.

Food was good, game was fun, and the laughter was infectious. The owner's energy and engagement with the customers reflects his love of the restaurant. Fun evening for something a little different.

Biggest barrier to lunch in downtown Fort Myers is lack of convenient parking. Either it’s 15 min or 30 Minutes parking close to the restaurants. My BLT was superb, great tasting bacon, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, and yummy chicken with spicy sauce. No thanks on...More

With over fifty years combined experience in the food industry, brothers Chris and Doug Blauvelt introduce their latest culinary venture. Located in the heart of Downtown Ft. Myers, The Standard serves fresh home-cooked style dishes from our "made from scratch" kitchen. Our Executive Chef, Katlyn Johnson, brings her years of experience as well as her wonderful palate for strong, contrasting flavors to every dish served up to our guests. The Standard also serves amazing handcrafted cocktails created by Dawn Barbour and has an impressive wine and beer selection that is sure to satisfy even the most finicky of palates. In addition to legendary food, drinks, and hospitality, The Standard has an incredibly relaxed atmosphere. The combination of iron beams, old brick walls, and thick wooden table tops add to the restaurant's ultra-modern feel. The Standard is open 7 Days a week for Lunch and Dinner and features Saturday and Sunday brunch with bottomless mimosas. Guests have the choice of dining inside or out, and can call ahead or book reservations online. If an amazing all-around dining experience is what you seek, then look no further than "The Standard." No gimmicks, no themes, just great food and good times.
