We had Allie as our server today, she was fantastic. She answered all of our questions about the menu. We decided to both have the grouper platter, we had it blackened and coconut. Both were fantastic (I think coconut is best though!) The key lime...dessert was delicious. What a great meal. Will definitely be back again for sure!More

Kevin, our waiter awesome! Knew when to stop over and when to hang back for a moment. When you stop by, ask for Kevin, you won’t be disappointed! Tito

My wife and I always enjoy eating at Dixie Fish Company when we are visiting Fort Meyers. Great raw oysters and outstanding fried grouper sandwich washed down with an ice cold beer. Top it off with a harbor-side table and it's a terrific experience. Thanks...to our waitress Patricia for the fast and friendly service.More

Dixie Fish is a Fort Myers specialty! I always enjoy the food there of course but the drinks that bartender Ginger makes…hands down the best I’ve ever tasted!! I often lose track of time when hanging out with family and friends at Dixie because it’s...such a great vibe. Ginger will keep me coming back for sure if she is there!!More

Best food in Ft Myers, but even better service! Ginger was phenomenal from the time we walked in to the time we walked out to the point where we didn’t want to leave. She turned us into loyal Dixie Fish customers…thanks for an unforgettable experience...Ginger:)More

My wife and I just had lunch and drinks here with friends that live in the area. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the place is right on the water at the back of a commercial harbor. It can be a little tricky to...find it as there is a one-way street into and another one-way street out of the location. Parking is free however, there aren't alot of spaces so it may be a tight fit when you visit. They have a full bar and the drinks and food were all excellent. We would highly recommend this place during your visit to the area.More

Had dinner at Dixie Fish in our last night of a mini vacation. We had a 45 minute wait but it was Saturday prime time and no rush for us. Found a seat at the bar and was quickly served by a friendly bartender. She...did a great job keeping everyone hydrated with no wait sorry I forget her name . We were seated at a perfect table on the water and Gus was our server. Gus was so pleasant and fun with big smiles and lots of laughs. He told us about the special andni went for it. But first we had grouper cheeks with a coconut crust and they were delicious. Crunchy on the outside moist on the inside perfect and a generous portion for an appetizer . Based on Gus recommendation I had the special which was gulf shrimp scallops potatoes and broccoli tossed in a Yucatán sauce. Just amazing freshness and flavor. My wife had coconut crusted grouper sandwich and fries. She could only eat half as it was huge and cooked perfectly. Of course I ate the other half. Dixie Fish is not fancy but just delicious and fun. Gus thank you for being an excellent server at Dixie see you soon!!More

Dixie has the best seafood on FMB for the best price by far. It’s always fresh, service is always great, and we always have a great experience. Our server Josie today was awesome!

Had a wonderful time with Josie. She was very informative, pleasant, and attentive. Josie told us all specials of the day. My parents enjoyed the whole fried fish AMAZING as well as the catch of the day DIXIE STYLE. I had the pasta dish which...was substituted with blackened chicken as I am allergic to shellfish. My friend enjoyed the Hogfish special over potatoes and veggies. Dixie never disappoints, best of the best! The Manager Reyes was very hands on with all tables and guest. Reyes stopped by and made us feel like we where at home! Thanks again Josie, you’re the bomb!More

Amazing service, amazing food. This place never lets me down. Josie and Reyes were awesome, super personable and we were able to get a table with a slight wait. I had the hogfish special with roasted potatoes, onions and mushrooms, my friends had the whole...fried fish and the red snapper the “Dixie way”. I had the drink special which was the perfect mix of a spicy and sweet margarita. We were so full and still took home food. Awesome view, family owed feel, you can’t ask for more.More

Had Coconut crusted-grouper and Crispy beer-battered fresh grouper and chips which were excellent. Food came out hot and both were delicious. First time at this restaurant, but 3rd time in Ft. Meyers Beach. Our server was Nicole, who was great! We had a seat near...on the side where we could watch the boats come and go. We even had a visitor watch us eat whose name was Mr. Pelican. We had time to enjoy the view and watch the wildlife there. The weather was idea too. We look forward to a return visit and most likely would order the exact same meals. We would look forward to seeing Nicole too! Again, great place, great food, and great service!More

The restaurant has a roof and open air on 3 sides. I remember being comfortable while dining in the middle of May. But, I don’t know if they use air conditioning to cool it. I haven’t been there in the summer.
