Had lunch and dinner here. Casual dining on the water. Can sit inside or out, can bring dog outside. Delicious peel and eat shrimp and fan tacos. Inexpensive drinks. Salads not great. Service friendly and consistent. Fun music

Lots of outdoor seating looking out over Matlacha pass - south. A good burger and fries joint, but also a very good fish house with amazing hogfish (hog nosed snapper). We ate her on the way home to Cape Coral by boat, but just wanted a little more time on the water. Been a few years since we ate the... More

Great little place by the water. Fresh seafood, great prices. Special was fried clams, so fresh and tender. Homemade chips were great. Some others at our table had the hog fish special and raved about it. Worth the trip.

We stopped in on our way home and loved the bar and the atmosphere. The beer was cod, the chips were good, the service fast. We'll be back!

our first visit to the quaint little town of Matlacha - what a great experience! Looks like a "shack" on the outside but has a great deck on the water - terrific wait staff - and the freshest seafood. Wonderful choices and good sized portions. Highly recommend the Fish Dip (it's cold and refreshing) and their own beer - Bert's... More

Drop by Bert's; take a table by the window. We visited during the evening. We had eaten so much seafood, during the week we were around, that we opted for regular, basic food for dinner at Bert's. We tried burgers and chicken wings. The food was great and the service was excellent, made us feel right at home.

Went to dinner and enjoyed the all you can eat fish fry on Friday. The fish is very mild and tender. Mom had a rueben and it was great too. We enjoyed the water view and music.

75 year oldtime Waterfront Restaurant and Bar with a Million Dollar view. Local seafood. Both local and national entertainment with no cover charge. Recommended by Southern Living, Coastal Living, Florida Travel & Life, Boston Globe, and American Airlines to mention a few. Quality food at reasonable prices. Great place to relax, enjoy the view and perhaps to see dolphins and/or manatees.
