This is one of the best restaurants in Fort Myers Beach, great views, great food. We went twice this last visit to Fort Myers. Only issue would be suggesting tips - I see no need to suggest an amount to me.

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.
