We drove by this restaurant often on our two-week visit to Fort Myers. It was always packed with cars. On our last day in Fort Myers we decided to check out this restaurant. The salad bar was fantastic along with the food and service. We had Chad as our waiter he could not have been nicer. We had the prime... More

After a long day at the beach, we walked across the street to find a wonderful restaurant. There was a small wait, but well worth it at twice the wait. After enjoying seafood in Florida, we were all ready for some red meat. We all ordered the Prime Rib. Each one was done the way we ordered it!!! Very good... More

We showed up on Valentine's Day without a reservation. The place was bustling and we didn't want to wait so we got a salad bar take out. It was a great deal and a super selection, we easily made a meal of it. I got two meals out of it and my husband one. We were given fresh warm bread,... More

Walked across the street with little or no expectation. Actually so tired that we just wanted to eat and crash from a long drive. The service was prompt, courteous and helpful. The salad bar (just the thought of salad bar grosses me out) was fresh, clean serviced and plentiful. The soup was extraordinary, and my steak was perfect. We can't... More

Charley's Boat House Grill on Fort Myers Beach has a wonderful atmosphere along with some good food. The best part of the dining experience here is the salad bar. The salad bar features 55 different selections. The setup of the salad bar reminds you of Ruby Tuesdays. I had the broiled catfish for my dinner entree with a baked potato.... More

About a 15 minute wait in January on a Thursday night for a table. Small "bar area" to order a drink while waiting for a table. The salad bar is big and beautiful and fresh. I had the 6 oz filet which was plenty of food when combined with the salad bar. My husband had the ribeye which was cooked... More

The setting is really enjoyable overlooking the mangroves and admiring the birds in their sanctuary. The salad bar was fresh, abundant and amazing! My husbands filet mignon was cooked to perfection and my grouper was very good too. Although the amount of grouper served was small for the $26 it was very good. Our server Carlee was outstanding and very... More

We happened to arrive early for dinner and enjoyed the early bird prices. The staff was spot on. We were seated overlooking the canal. The salad bar was one of the best we've ever experienced. The sirloin could have been a little more tender but was very tasty. Over all this is a good dining experience.
