visited this restaurant twice whilst on holiday recently. Really nice food with enormous portions and excellent service. Would recommend sitting on the terrace for the views of the bay. I can recommend the Pina Colada Bread Pudding but not if youre watching your waistline! Drinks are reasonable and the cocktails fab.

We went to Nervous Nellies with our children. We sat outside so we could see the water, the boats and the bridge. Was pretty cool. The food was good, the service was excellent!

Whether you need to eat or just have a cold drink this is a great place to go. Sit outside and watch boats come and go and enjoy a cold drink after walking around town. Always love it!

We have a great server, Louis or Lewis, who took really good care of us. He gave us information about the menu beyond what was there, and this proved most helpful. Sometimes you really don't know what the menu is saying and having it explained is very nice. The entrees we ordered were prepared very well and were delicious. Louis/Lewis... More

You can never go wrong visiting this restaurant. The seafood is the best but there are many options for the non-seafood lover in your group. The Nellie's gumbo and the lobster salad roll are to die for! This is a must visit for us on every trip to Fort Myers Beach......
