We had dinner on a Thursday night, seated outside on the sand. Our server was Sarah, she was outstanding. She gave us great recommendations on drinks and food. My wife had their wicked rum bucket. We tried the crab and spinach dip, and for dinner...had coconut shrimp and the Key West Grill combo. Everything was excellent. We may go back for dinner again tomorrow.More

We've been here several times for a drink and maybe an appetizer. The location is great, a fun spot on Fort Myers beach. But this was not a place we thought of to plan a full dinner. This time we had friends in town who...wanted to treat us and wanted to give it a try. What a great surprise. Sarah was our server. Frankly she was one of the best servers we'd had in a while. The had the friendly, funny yet classy demeanor's that we would hope for everywhere She was patient and honest, helping steering us to choices that best fit our palates. Everyone was delighted with the food. I had the American Red Snapper. It was fresh, perfectly prepared and one of the most enjoyable seafood entrees I've had recently.More

First time visiting Fort Myers Beach. Restaurant and atmosphere and food was absolutely awesome! Trish filled us in on all the local attractions and the best food recommendations at The Salty Crab. Trish was right off the bat funny, personable, friendly, and expedient with our...food and drink. Trish checked on us five or six times throughout our meal to ensure that we were well taken care of. Trish was a true professional! We made a friend!!! Thank you.More

Crowded little place on the beach. Didn’t have to wait tho. Beer was not cold and peel and eat shrimp was supposed to be cold but was not and they tasted watery. Everything else we got was good. Fried shrimp and fish and oysters. Waitress...was good but very busy.More

Beautiful views and amazing food! Michael took great care of us. His recommendation of Huevos Ranchero was spot on! The tortillas were so crunchy and homemade ranchero sauce was delicious. Will be back again soon.

The American Red Snapper was the hit at the table and is a must try. Exceptional! The snow crab, called Bardi Crab at Salty Crab was very good, though was NOT market price. The fried Alaskan Cod in the fish and chips was tasty and...the sides of fries, chips, slaw and street corn were all very good. Christopher was a fantastic server! Only reason this is not 5 stars is the market price claim, and the seating is kind of cavernous. The pretty beach view is a bonus though, temporarily marred by the grim grey shell of the future- Margaritaville.More
