We actually had dinner next door but stopped by for a drink and enjoy the view. Our bartender, Jake, was great. He was very friendly and helpful, since we were on vacation, he told us about some of the things to do and see around...town. Will definitely be back for dinner next time down here.More

Dixie Fish Co. is an open air, Estero Bay eatery and bar. Catch of the day and their whole fish are specialties. I like the catch of the day and let the server choose among the five different ways they grill it. Grilled squash and...grape tomatoes, red skin potatoes are awesome sides. Live music, the bay view, the breeze. Used to be able to get a seat, before EVERYONE discovered this place! Bishop served us at the first come bar seats that we lucked into last week. The fish and chips is large enough to split and share a key lime pie, voted best Key lime in Ft Myers. Go Bishop and CU next time!More

Our waitress was wonderful. S'Iva even helped us decide what to have. I have Celiac and she made sure I ordered correctly. The hogfish was amazing, the sides excellent, and the service stellar. Try it! You'll love it.

We are new residents of Fort Myers Beach (FMB). As tourists over the last number of years, we generally made a trip to Dixie Fish Co for lunch or dinner during our vacation. Have always loved the food, dining experience/ambience (nothing better than being on...the water) and staff. Now that we live in FMB, we generally get to Dixie Fish Co a couple of times a week, generally for lunch. Stops on Tuesday and Thursday have the tram of Jake and Allie A working. Great team. Allie is very complimentary of her work experiences which creates an atmosphere of someone who likes their job and as such treat customers with respect, appreciation and caring. WONDERFUL time.More

We had a great experience here! Bishop, our bartender was very attentive and talkative. We were only supposed to be there for a drink and appetizer before we went to the airport, but due to storms, we were there for almost three hours! Even with...the rain, the temperature stayed warm with the screens they put down. The smoked wings and fish dip were amazing!!More

Me and a group of friends went for dinner. Ordered the cold shrimp for a appetizer and it tasted like it was just caught from the shrimp boats you could see unlink in. What a view and the taste was amazing. Leah our server was...beyond courteous and helpful. She helped with the menu and explained the specials. Ordered the hog fish special which was amazing as well. If you are looking for great food , better drinks the best key lime pie and service that is second to none then dixie fish co is the place. Special thanks to our server lea for making our first trip there a great one. If I could give 10 stars I would..best long Island ice tea....More

Sort of. You could certainly bring kids, but not really a place for infants or toddlers. It’s usually crowded with lots of activity. Probably better fir lunch, but haven’t been there then. You’re better off at Doc Fords... More
