Great food, great atmosphere and always a great time. We stop here on Sundays for the Bears game every October. Always a friendly waitress and good appetizers at half time!

Food was mediocre at best. They do not know how to make biscuits and gravy. Server acted like she had better things to do than wait on us!

I sent an email and called at least five times and left a message once or twice asking them to get back in touch with me about whether there was an elevator for someone in a wheelchair. I never heard back from them; I just kept getting voicemails so we're going somewhere else. I guess they don't want our business!

We were visiting Ft. Myers to celebrate my birthday. My husband saw an ad for this restaurant. It sounded good and stated that reservations were recommended. We made our reservation for 7 pm. When we arrived at the restaurant, it was open but there wasn't one patron nor staff - no hostess, no servers, no bartender. We, of course, left.... More

Every trip to Fort Myers Beach starts with breakfast at the Gulfshore for their breakfast potatoes. Unfortunately they dropped the ones they have had for years and replaced them with some of the worst I have had. So much for a 30+ year tradition.

Seafood sucks. Sorry I cook & I know how local seafood taste. And definitely not local. A bit expensive for low quality food. Would not recommend.

Great view of the beach in an old building (I think built in 1928 or so). Large picture windows all across the back. We came in for breakfast and ordered eggs, canadian bacon, grits and a biscuit. It was great that they let us substitute one thing for another and at no extra charge. The waitress noted to us that... More

We ate dinner here our first night in town out on the deck. I had the Tortuga shrimp and loved it. It is like scampi but with siracha and lime added. It was a little spicy but not hot. Daughter had coconut shrimp which she gives a thumbs up as well . Positive comments about the shrimp tacos and a... More

The atmosphere and design of the restaurant was really nice. There was nowhere inside the restaurant you could sit without a beautiful full beach view. The server was very friendly and attentive, just a little slow with refills. He made up for the speed with his respect and helpfulness. I would definitely go back.

Stopped in for lunch and got a table overlooking the beach. Food was very good but a little pricey. There was a $10 charge to park next to the restaurant. Less expensive parking is available within walking distance. Worth a visit if you avoid the parking expense.
