no atmosphere in this restaurant. The 'famous' salad bar was poor. Had steak and shrimp and the steak was awful, really dry. They did take money off for thi.

Place was dimly lit... and good thing too. Zero ambiance, in fact I don't think they know the word. Scary place on the outside and inside not much better. Food ok... not worth price. Would not reccomend

Friendly staff and nice view from the inside over the water. The food is good and I really liked the salad bar. It was so nice and a lot to pick from. Downside is that its a bit pricey. But over all good.

Great food and service. Salad bar was fantastic! Dinner was served with a fresh baked hard roll. Had a nice channel view.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The waitstaff are the best you find on Fort Myers Beach! The food is very good. This restaurant also has daily early bird specials every day. However, the early bird specials are merely smaller portions of items on the regular menu. For those who may be interested, this restaurant includes an "all you can eat"... More

Nice salad bar and very friendly service. Food was OK, but not special. Unforntunatedly the restaturant is being renovated so have to walk through construction area, with views into storage area, to get to sitting area.

After traveling to 3 restaurants that had closed since our last visit, we decided to go to the next available restaurant. What a pleasant surprise, even though it was still under construction. Service was great and the food was excellent! Prices a little higher than expected, but a lot of food is given to you for the price.

Trip advisor find. Didn't want to eat at a tourist trap. Doesn't look like much outside and then the inside looked old but then realized the hole place is under renovation! We were sat in the only area finished and it looked very nice. You get a little view of water and mangrove trees which was nice. Staff was super... More
