“Fido's is Fine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

OK, we've been to San Pedro (and Fido's) at least a dozen times and we were just there with a huge group of divers. Our good buddy Kelly Maguire was playing around the island and we saw him at Fido's twice.

Brian, the owner (and not the last owner I knew there), was extremely accommodating for our group of 46. Try taking a group that size anywhere on Ambergris Caye and it's pretty overwhelming. However, Brian opened up the second floor "balcony" for us and provided waitstaff and a bartender dedicated to us. Pretty classy and we had a great time.

This is, of course, the most famous bar on the island and, in the past, it was a fun bar...but it wasn't really a good restaurant. I'm happy to report that that's changed. The kitchen not only did a great job of keeping up with a very full house, the food there now rivals the better restaurants on the island. Seriously, I was shocked. Pleasantly, but shocked nonetheless.

Now you don't need to worry about grabbing dinner somewhere else before enjoying the live music and friendly bartenders--just make a night of it there!

Much improved food, a lot of fun and holding up very well to the tourist pressure.

“Great food and live music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We heard Kelly McGuire was going to be singing here so we thought we would go for a few drinks while we listened to the music. Once we saw the food coming out of the kitchen we decided to order some nachos and they were very good. The fish and chips that people were eating at the next table ober looked good too It's a relaxing atmosphere and reasonably priced.

“The Food was a real surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I were in town to catch Jerry Jeff Walker, who was performing several shows at Fidos in January. We figured we grab some beers and bar food before the shows. I order the grilled fish with rice and beans, my wife the barbequed fish. WOW!. The food was fantastic!!! So good that stopped by one day for an afternoon dish of cerviche, also a WOW. So this place is more that just a joint to hear some great music. The food is really great. And if you happen to be a cat person, Ozzie, the house cat, will likely stop by for a visit. He's truly a cool cat, and he loves the grilled fish!

The bartenders at Fido's were great!! We went there to watch the Ravens in the Superbowl and we had a great party! They had a big screen set up to watch the game and let us go nuts cheering and we had a blast!! The bartenders didn't mind that we were loud and we enjoyed ourselves!! Thanks guys!

“Consistently great food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We actually ate here 3 times we enjoyed it so much. Good at both lunch and supper. Our waiter, was quick to serve us, and wiped up the water from all the crazy condensation on our water bottles and glasses often. Good food, good atmosphere. Enjoy!
