Visit here every time we are at FMB. Excellent food and service. Great wine list reasonably priced. We had outside table with nice view of water and of the night sky. I had the mahi mah with citrus beurre sauce which was excellent. Other diners had shrimp, Grouper and seafood salad. We had calamari which was excellent with fried peppers... More

Two months ago we decided to go to the Fresh Catch Bistro when we heard about the Happy Hour. You can't beat the price and quality of martini's. We then went back to weeks later and had dinner, just as great. It also has a great view since you are on the beach. It must be great for sunsets.

Our family is somewhat limited in dining options on vacation because a few members have to eat gluten free food. We understood that this was a more expensive option, but reviews were so good that we thought it might be worth it. It was. We really enjoyed the food!! My kids (2 & 4) split a half pound of peel...

The food was reasonable for a resort area and really well done. Not a creative menu but solid traditional fare with a design your own menu for fish and steak. This one's worth a trip.

The location and view are spectacular, the food is just average and not worth the price. Several people in our party had the prime rib and it was not a good cut of meat, which was disappointing. If you want a beach front location with better food, try the Turtle Club.

This was our first time in FMB. We wanted to go to a "nicer" place for our anniversary dinner. Read other Trip Advisor reviews and chose Fresh Catch Bistro. It was fantastic. The location is great, right on the beach. We sat outside and had a beautiful view of the sunset. The food was delicious. We both had Mediterranean Shrimp... More

My husband and I were on vacation in Fort Myers and had a lovely anniversary dinner here, however after we were back home, (in Germany) I was going through my receipts and discovered that our waiter had charged us $8.00 for an anniversary desert that we did not order (and did not want), and was specifically told it was on...

Our server, starters, and drinks were fantastic. We both ordered the specials; I got the hogfish covered in various seafood, he got the 22 oz ribeye. Both entrees were disappointing. My hogfish had bones in it and was overcooked while his ribeye was rubbery and lacked flavor. We expected more, especially for $42+ entrees! As year-round SWFL residents we are... More

We had a great evening and dinner celebrating a birthday and simultaneous engagement. Mark and Jerry did everything they could to make the evening memorable and the food did the rest! Thank you for everything!
