It's a little difficult to find the entrance to the parking lot, but well worth the effort. The food and service were terrific.

The servers do a great job although be prepared for some delays if you go during peak periods. Reservations are available and recommended during those times if you want a second... More

Very nice atmosphere and the food was great. You can sit outside on the wharf or upstairs in the enclosed dining. Portions were large and prices reasonable. Variety of foods, as well as good fish.

During a vacation at Fort Myers Beach, my family and I enjoyed a variety of drinks and seafood at the local Doc Ford's restaurant. The service was very good. We enjoyed the view over the waterfront/marina. The parking is convenient. We would return again if we are in the area.
