We Stopped in for breakfast not busy at sat down and waited for ten minutes. My husband got up to use to restroom and saw workers in hall smoking not a care in the world that customers are waiting to be waited on. No wonder...they have no business! We left and went next door. It's a shame because this place used to good. Will never come back or recommend.More

We stopped in during our FMB Haunted Pub Crawl for drinks and had a small appetizer, The fresh gulf grouper bites. Both were very good, and we also got to enjoy a musician playing while we were there. Nice Stop!

I LOVE Pete’s Time Out. They’ve been open since at least the 1980’s so they’re doing something right. They have the best breaded chicken sandwich I’ve ever had. Staff is friendly. The atmosphere is awesome. Keep up the great work( service…food…fun…).

I'm uncertain why this is marked "vegetarian friendly". I think the only vegetarian item was a grilled cheese with fries. Being gluten intolerant, my only option was to order a grilled sandwich without the bun. The menu descriptions aren't accurate. For example, my grilled chicken...arrived with melted cheese. Also being lactose intolerant, this was a problem. On top of everything else our food arrived luke warm and drinks watered down. So many better options in Fort Myers Beach!More

My wife and I came down to enjoy breakfast while listening to Beach Talk Radio's live broadcast from the restaurant. My wife enjoyed her French Toast with bacon and eggs. I had ordered the Belgium waffle with blueberries. It came with a choice of meat...of which I had ham. The ham was a very good size and tasty portion. I was thinking fresh blueberries, but it was pie filling. The Belgium waffle was not fluffy and crisp, but more chewy. The waffle was definitely not something special. My wife had a mimosa, and I enjoyed a good Bloody Mary.More
