Friendly and pleasant atmosphere in the middle of Time Square in Fort Myers Beach, Pete's is family owned by Youngstown Ohio couple. I recommend their Grouper and Mahi Mahi dinners, and especially their tasty Smashed mashed potatoes

So glad we stopped in! It has a great, beachy vibe and the location is right in the heart of the square in Fort Myers Beach. The staff could not have been lovelier and the food was delicious!! I got the daily special, which was red beans & rice topped with andouille sausage & grilled shrimp. It was so wonderful.... More

Very picturesque bar/restaurant on the beach front. Food, service, and ambiance were great. Very hot day, but the misting fans and table umbrella made lunch very pleasant. Will definitely return.

Stayed at the harbor and ate breakfast here. The food is just down to earth breakfast food, but cooked well with generous portions at a reasonable price. We would go again.

Customer Service is number one at the restaurant. The food is always good, especially breakfast. They are usually busy but it is worth the wait. When you think of Florida orange juice, this is the place to get it. For ham lovers, yum. They are open for breakfast early, I think 7am and close around 9:30 or 10:00PM. Very accommodating.

Good food, big portions, reasonable prices. We stopped to eat during a passing shower, and ate out front under the umbrella. Friendly waiter.

I had pancakes, eggs and bacon and very good orange juice. Service was cheerful and warm. They have an open kitchen concept, so you can see the cooks prepare your food. This place has been opened forever and there is a reason why : it's good.

Last minute decision to stop and eat....we thought the food was okay. Server was very friendly and made us feel welcome, I wish I could remember her name! We've been here before and the food seemed better this time than last.

We came here right at 11:00 - when they were switching from breakfast to lunch menu. There were only about 3 other tables seated at that time. I'm assuming everyone was winding down from the breakfast rush and therefore gave us hardly any attention. We came and sat down and were there for several minutes. I actually had to get... More

Pete's has been a local establishment for over 30 years. Located in Fort Myers Beach Times Square - beautiful view of the Gulf and great people watching. Great for sunset watching too! We are known for our great hamburgers, fries, shrimp, fresh grouper prime rib and wings. We offer a large menu with breakfast through dinner. Full Bar - try one of our wonderful Mojitos! We have outdoor seating as well as covered seating. All with a great view of the area including the Gulf. A great place to unwind for a cocktail or a Brew, Chew and View. ENTERTAINMENT every day and evening! On porch Sun-Sat AM and Sun-Thur PM - Bands in square every Friday and Saturday night
