Great food and fantastic frozen drinks either indoors with gulf views and breezes or on our outdoor patio. You can even get your feet in the sand on our beaches. Beach chair, wave runner and kayak rentals are available and plenty of parking. For more formal dining, step upstairs and visit the award winning Fresh Catch Bistro which offers the finest in seafood and steaks with panoramic views of the gulf and stunning sunsets.

So, I have been coming here for 5+ years. I just love this place with the views, food, and the great bartenders. However I got to say Tracy is the best. What a great place to relax and watch the sunsets

We had the perfect table just by the railing with a super view. Food was good, but not exceptional. Overall the ambience was great and I would return. It's easier to park and keeps you out of the main tourist areas.

The service was incredibly slow. The bartenders were friendly although they were understaffed. We had a party of 12 and the bartenders offered to take our food order (but the manager asked us to wait for a table). We waited and then the server didn’t...want to refill the kids soft drinks because we paid for them at the bar. She tried to talk us out of ordering pizza because it ‘takes so long’ yet it arrived before our other food. When the appropriate sides didn’t come with our meals she said she forgot to tell people they couldn’t substitute sides. The bathrooms were talked about by everyone at the table as being worse than any gas station truck stop. Advice: order food from the bar and try not to use the bathrooms. Food was average.More

The shrimp tacos were delicious. The clam chowder was thick like paste and tasted funny. The vodka tonic came with flat tonic. The mojito was strange tasting. The manager, Ray seemed like he really didn't enjoy his job, didn't apologize until we were walking out...the door. He also didn't ask what he could do to make things better, but took a couple things off the bill. In contrast, our server, Zach, was really working working his tail off. He was friendly, checked back and was prompt in returning the food to the kitchen and the drinks to the bar. This is seemingly more of a bar atmosphere than restaurant so yes, it's loud. The view can't be beat though. Food is hit or miss, but we will probably come back again, just won't order the chowder or alcoholic beverages.More

Menu options and food quality was average for the area. Staff was a little below average in that the host seemed annoyed to be bothered. The wait staff was better than the host. The location and beach are great! Parking is limited but free if...there is room in the lot. I would return for a quick lunch but there are better dinner options in the area.More

Place was loud and dirty. Many tables were up walking around and yelling making it very unrelaxing. There was also mold on beach tables and in the bathroom. Very unhygienic

We ate here twice on vacation and had good experiences both times. Our waiter and waitress was so friendly and we all enjoyed the food. My cauliflower bites were amazing!

Great beach location, great views! It’s nice place to go to take a break and grab a bite. It has your basic bar food, but done well! This is usually the first stop for a meal when I come to Ft Myers. Friendly people and...totally casual. You can walk in right off the sand.More

We love this place. Great food, great drinks. Love sitting there and looking at the Gulf. Staff is always friendly. Tracy waited on us and we think she is awesome. We’re always made to feel welcome. Thank you!
