“Upscale bar food and worth a visit”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Our first visit to Cape Coral - we went to "The Joint at Cape Harbour". Cape Harbour is a beautiful marina-condo-restaurant-shopping area. Friends recommended "The Joint" as it was close to where we were staying. The Joint has a modern, arty inside dining area, comfortable tables and chairs, clean, well-decorated, very attractive. There is a large outside porch - an eating area which overlooks the harbor-marina and many expensive boy toys, e.g. 45 + foot long yachts. Outside was full, and we could be seated inside immediately - so we chose "eat now".

The menu has a variety of salads, sandwiches, small pizzas, wings, and more. We had the day's specials, a blackened mahi sandwich for me, and a salad with herbed brie for my wife.
Service was fast and excellent. Drink orders were taken and served, food orders taken and served, and dishes removed fast when done.

The food was delicious. I had hoped for more of a dinner menu vs. casual/bar styles, but was very happy with the mahi, and snuck a taste of her herbed brie - very good as well.

The table next to us had a young family, with a son perhaps three years old, and a younger brother in high chair. The three year old was unhappy, quite vocally, and cried quite a bit, and for a rather long while. After he was picked up and walked around a few minutes, and the food was served to their table, he calmed down, and we all enjoyed very nice dinner out.

“Nice place, dancing and music outdoors”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

One of the better places to go in Cape Coral to have a good time. Is outside, has an area for dancing, has live music, near the water, outside heaters on cold nights. You can walk around the shops nearby which are really nice.

“Tasty food, watch the check”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We ate there and had a great meal and drinks. When the check came along we figured out our portion. Since what I had to pitchin would have been equivalent to a 20+ % tip, my companion put the bill on her charge card. When the bill was paid I left a very generous tip in cash. When my friend checked her statement, there was a 20% tip written in on her credit card slip! She went down and reported it to management. I went with her and explained what happened.
Being a server in a fine dining restaraunt I have to warn people of this all the time. If you leave a CASH tip, write in CASH on the tip line of your credit card slip and total it!
This is NOT the first time this has happened there. No matter where you go on vacation, this can happen.
